Question about 1991 Buick Park Avenue

1 Answer

The speedometer stopped working on my 1990 Buick Park Ave. It's not digital, but I don't see a cable going to the transmission. Any idea where I should start? Do I take the dash apart? The needle will move sometimes, but it's not accurate. Thanks in advance for your help.

    It's the connector that plugs into the clusters printed circuit. It needs to be cleaned. Normal problem.

Buick cruise control

You'll probably need a shop manual for this. The light only means the system is getting power. It could be the transducer or controller, even a vac leak.

Speedometer works and stops working intermittently. I don't know how to unplug to clean the contacts

This vehicle 1990 does not have a digital speedometer correct.?
The cable runs from the output shaft of the transmission to the rear of the speedometer.
Therefore either the cable is defective ,speedometer itself or the gear it works off of in the transmission.
This could be fustrating especially if you determine its the gear on the outputshaft.( have to remove transmission from vehicle to repair it) Take the vehicle to transmission shop they do this in there

I have a 89 buick park avenue ultra. my

the transmission breaking apart but in a really slow way. There's not a thing that can be done to save it. It's going to someday give out. You can prolong it by not punching on the pedal to test it. just drive it normally and DON"T get the trans oil change. Just leave it alone... I own 89 P/Ave 156,000 original owner. Same thing happened to my car and picked up a used trans at junk yard and my mechanic installed it and runs like a baby at half the price(700.00). If you go to junk yards half of the park ave are because of trans. Good luck

1998 Buick Park Ave Speedometer stopped working.

Found the problem with the speedometer on my Buick. When you use the magnet to fix the gas gauge, will can and may affect your speedo. So use the magnet trick on it as well. Appears that the manufacturer didn't think about the needles being able to swing past the magnet they have set up in the gauges. Should have put a stop pin on the gauges.

I have a 1991 buick park ave ultra

your car is suffering from a faulty speed sensor. it works by using a signal generator in the transmission that creates an electrical signal in relationship to vehicle speed. This information is processed by the vehicle’s computer for engine and transmission management and provides the signal for the body computer that controls the speedometer. If the speed sensor itself fails then this might be the reason behind your problems. in addition, another cause of this may be that harness my be loose connecting to the transmission or behind the speedometer. there are multiple pins connecting behind the speedometer, and sometimes when one of those pins are not properly connected it gives a problem like yours.
