Most cars of 98 vintage will use a square section cable drive cable to deliver rotational information from the side of the transmission final drive to the odometer. Check the speedo cable connection to the transmission, the end of the cable sleeve has a flange that is held into a recess on the side of the transmission by a circlip. The square section cable sticks out of the end of the flanged sleeve and engages with a square socket within the transmission. A similar arrangement is found on the rear of the odometer except the sleeve is usually attached by a threaded circular nut. Make sure the ends are attached.

1992 toyota 4x4 pickup odometer working but speedometer not working

They both work off of the same cable, so I would say that you have a problem in the speedometer head itself and will need replacing or sent in for repair.

My speed odmeter stops working at times

These speedometer is controlled by a sensor mounted on the transmission, and not by a cable.The speed sensor is mounted on the top of the transmission on the back side of the engine side. Pretty easy to replace

Take the cables off the battery. Touch the two cables together (away from battery) and them together for 15 seconds. PUT POS CABLE BACK ON FIRST. Then neg cable. If this does work, cluster will need to be replaced.

Pontiac 2002 Aztek odometer had quit. Does anyone know what I need to do to repair it.

Replace the cluster with a used one from a junk yard or send it in and have it rebuilt. Is it digital or analog?

Speedometer stopped working.and the odmeter what causes this problem

Sounds like the speed sensor went out also called (VSS)

It's on the transmission underneath where the lower radiator hose goes to the engine. It has a plug on it.
