Question about Chevrolet Cavalier

1 Answer

95 Chevy Cavalier with the 2.2 engine in it. The Speedometer does not work and the Odometer doesn't work either But the Auto meter does work. Me and My father thought by changing the vehicle speed sensor that the problem would fix itself. So after changing the sensor the problem still occurs. My next step would be to change the sensors harness. If that does not fix the problem what do you suggest i look into next? I'm a DIY type of mechanic and I work at Napa Auto Parts so all of the parts i need are available to me. I just need some more direction with this issue.

My obdominor does not work in my 2003 sierra


If the speedometer works, but the odometer does not, the problem is in the cluster. If the speedometer and odometer do not work, you should have a check engine light and the trouble code will probably be for the speed sensor in the transmission.

Transmission speed sensor


You could have a faulty speedometer/odometer combination meter causing a false Vehicle Speed Sensor error.
My 1998 Sienna had the following symptoms:
- Speedometer and odometer failed intermittently
- The check engine light would come on and I would get a p0500 code in the OBDII.
- The cruise control would stop working at the same time the speedometer failed.
There is a speed sensor in each one of the tires and they feed the speed information to the ABS ECU. From the ABS ECU the speed signal goes to the speedometer/odometer combination meter, and from there it goes to the Engine Control Module and to the Cruise Control ECU. I could see a signal coming into the speedometer/odometer, but no signal going out. Replacing the speedometer/odometer combination meter fixed the problem.

Sounds like your speedometer/odometer cable is broken. Try a transmission shop like AAMCO or Midas.

95' cavalier hesitates to start and switch to 2nd gear


My friend it sounds very familiar to a TPS (throtle position sensor). Locate it by the throttle lever on the intake box.Place an ohmmeter on little brute while unplugged set the meter to 100 ohms and manually activate the throttle lever.Should read at 0 closed and 8 to 14 open . If not install a T P S unit.Cheap and readily available at most auto parts stores

If your odometer is working and your speedo needle doesnt indicate correctly then your problem is the stepper motor in the cluster. I have repaired a lot of instrument clusters....cost is 105.00
