Your speed sensor could be defective. It's what sends the signal to the speedometer, from the transmission.

After washing my car, speedometer stopped working and transmission isn't shifting


Year make and model? if you pressure washed the engine and transmission, depending on car, you could have blown off the speedometer sensor plug, or just filled it with water. This is the reason for no shifting.

I just replaced the ECU on my Catera 1998. Everything worked fine untel after a few miles the Check engine, TC, and ABS lights came on. The speedometer stopped working. The Tachometer and other gauges are...


I would try to get a replacement ECU since the speedometer is controlled by it.
Partial functionality of the ECU should be sited as the reason for the exchange.

Also, did you change the EPROM over to the new one?

Are there any readable codes from the new ECU?

What was the original reason you changed the ECU?

I have a 99 cougar and speedometer and the odometer are not workig properly car reving faster then the rpm is reading as well as speedometer?


replace VSS. Vehicle Speed Sensor if it not working properly, all sensor fail soon or later. RPM majority of the time will be faulty wiring from your distributor. check make sure there is no oil leakage into you distributor, it will also create a short contact to the reading. You can try to clean the distributor sensor. if plan to replace, get one from junk yard. Or you can put after market rpm gage which they also make.

Speedometer in my 1995 miata stopped working while i was driving down the road? any suggestions?


Hi,
The reason for the speedometer not working should be the cable connecting the dashboard and the transmission.This could be caused by a problem on the speedometer cable. This cable is connected at the back of your dashboard to the transmission. Check out if the cable broke or has disconnected from the back of the dashboard. Thank you for contacting www.Fixya.com

Stereo stopped working along with speedometer


It's probably not a fuse. It sounds like your vehicle speed sensor went bad in the transmission. The reason your radio stopped working was because your radio is probably equipped with speed sensitive volume and it requires a speed signal to work.
