I need to identify the fuse that controls the Speedometer


There is no fuse just for the speedometer , there is a fuse or fuse's for the whole instrument cluster . IF the fuse or fuse's for the instrument cluster blew ,the whole instrument cluster would be dead not just the speedometer ! I would look for the stepper motor that controls the speedometer being bad, or the VSS - vehicle speed sensor . But there are other thing's that wouldn't work correctly if the VSS was bad > it wouldn't shift correctly or at all . Most vehicles now a days the speed it determined by the ECM/PCM - engine computer . The VSS is an input to the engine computer , the engine computer sends this info on a serial data bus to the instrument cluster , along with temp. an fuel level info etc... Don't know what make ,model an year vehicle you have but I do know GM vehicles had known stepper motor problems .

What is the location of fuse for speedometer on 2o04 ford explorer


Speedometer The instrument cluster receives the vehicle speed sensor (VSS) signal from the powertrain control module (PCM) through the standard corporate protocol (SCP) communication network. The instrument cluster monitors the VSS input from the PCM and commands the speedometer with a corresponding movement of the pointer.
  • The speedometer/odometer is inoperative
  • Circuitry.
  • Powertrain control module (PCM).
  • Instrument cluster.
  • Go To Pinpoint Test L .
PINPOINT TEST L: THE SPEEDOMETER/ODOMETER IS INOPERATIVE Test Step Result / Action to Take L1 RETRIEVE THE RECORDED DTCS FROM BOTH CONTINUOUS AND ON-DEMAND INSTRUMENT CLUSTER SELF-TESTS
  • Use the recorded instrument cluster DTCs from the continuous and on-demand self-tests.
  • Are any instrument cluster DTCs recorded?
Yes
If instrument cluster U1123 is retrieved, REFER to Powertrain Control/Emissions Diagnosis (PC/ED) manual to continue diagnosis.

For all other instrument cluster DTCs, REFER to the Instrument Cluster Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) Index.

No
For inoperative speedometer, GO to L2 .

For inoperative odometer, GO to L3 . L2 CARRY OUT THE SPEEDOMETER ACTIVE COMMAND USING THE DIAGNOSTIC TOOL
  • Connect the diagnostic tool.
  • Key in ON position.
  • Enter the following diagnostic mode on the diagnostic tool: Instrument Cluster Active Command.
  • Select the instrument cluster speedometer active command.
  • Trigger the speedometer and scroll in increments of 10% while monitoring the speedometer. The speedometer should increase in increments of approximately 20 km/h (12 mph) for each 10% change.
  • Does the speedometer increase within specifications?
Yes
REFER to Powertrain Control/Emissions Diagnosis (PC/ED) manual to continue diagnosis.

No
GO to L4 . L3 MONITOR THE INTEGRATED CIRCUIT DISPLAYS
  • Key in ON position.
  • Monitor the compass, air temperature and message center functions of the integrated circuit display.
  • Do the compass, air temperature or message center displays operate correctly?
Yes
GO to L4 .

No
Go To Pinpoint Test AE . L4 CHECK FOR CORRECT INSTRUMENT CLUSTER OPERATION
  • Disconnect all instrument cluster connectors.
  • Check for:
    • corrosion
    • pushed-out pins
  • Connect all instrument cluster connectors and make sure they seat correctly.
  • Operate the system and verify the concern is still present.
  • Is the concern still present?
Yes
INSTALL a new instrument cluster. REFER to Instrument Cluster in this section. TEST the system for normal operation.

No
The system is operating correctly at this time. The concern may have been caused by a loose or corroded connector. CLEAR the DTCs. REPEAT the self-test. There isn't a fuse just for the speedometer , there are four fuse for the whole instrument cluster . If one of these fuse's were burnt you would have more then just the speedometer not working ! You need to have a scan tool to find out what is up ! you could need a new cluster ! Is the check engine light on ? if not wouldn't think vehicle speed sensor bad , besides speed info for speedometer PCM uses for transmission shift points ! Good luck ,hope this helps !

Loss speedometer and tackmoter in my 2005 jeep grand Cherokee what could it be odemeter still works


the cluster in the the car, is standalone,
its just a display and has self test you can do.
http://www.fixkick.com/Jeeps/jeeps.html#cluster

Check both cluster fuses in the fuse box yet?
one is power other is memory.

if that test passes, and you
THEN PCM, did you scan it yet? (any modern $10 scan tool works here) can-bus rated, scan tools are Ubiquious now.
not scanning the car, and missing can-bus errors is bad idea.
or missing PCM can't talk to the display(cluster) misses the boat.
or VSS errors, or any TCM errors, or other errors, DO SAY THEM.


the PCM sees RPM or the engine can't run , with dead cam or crank sensors. so right off the bat I know PCM is sending RPM .(tacho)

the speed can be checked with any scan tool made (rpm /speed)
plug in scan tool and drive, and have helper read the PID called, SPEED . (vss speed) cheap tools can do live data stream.
on ANY PID. (pids are live parameters by number)

do not guess. here, scan it first.
or go broke.

I have a 1999 Dodge Ram 1500 series pickup truck. The speedometer doesnt work. I've changed the speed sensor on the transmission and the wiring to the computer to the sensor, and the speedometer head...


The speed cluster work from the ABS speed sensors that have separate computer it is on engine compartment near battery and brake booster. This computer work independent and only get 12v and can bus send all the info by a can bus 2 wires that run to dodge ECM same wires run to cluster. I make a diesel swap speed work ok but not my RPM any ideas

99 Ford F-450 Speedometer won't work


Replace your speed sensor. Your speedometer is controlled by a sensor in the transmission. It's a simple fix.

INSTRUMENT CLUSTER IS READING NO BUS AND NONE OF THE GAUGES ARE WORKING same problem,usually comes back on.


My gauges quit working on my 2000 Ram 1500 and while troubleshooting the problem I removed the DIN plug located in the fuse box underneath the hood. It is the one with a phillips head screw in it. I examined the conenectors and everthing appeared in order. I reseated the plug and tightened the screw back up. I cranked the truck and everthing worked perfectly. I suspect that the connectors may work loose over a period of time and noticed that when tightening the screw it made a slip when overtightened much like a locking gas cap. Tighten the screw until just before it slips. Hopefully this will help a lot of dissapointed Dodge owners.

Speedometer doesnt work or bounces causing car to studder


On my 96 the PSOM module went bad. That is located on the back of the instrument cluster. Mine is analog not digital. What was happening was that the PSOM (Programable Speedometer Odometer Module) would mess up and the speedometer would jump all over the place. The tranmission is electronic and the computer would adjust and shift depending on the speed reported by the speedometer. The van would **** and shake. At slower speeds it was much better. I changed the speed sensor first without success. Changed the instument cluster and all was well.
