This is a problem with the gearing in the CLUSTER - not anything else.
To repair - the cluster needs to be replaced.

206 peugeot total distance recorder not working

In this model, the gearbox should be fitted with speed sensor, as it provides the info of vehicle speed to the instrument panel(dashboard) by means of speedometer and the total distance covered. So, does the speedometer work proberly, does the needle move correctly? If yes, you have to change the instrument panel. if the answer is no, then the speed sensor is not working, either the sensor itself or one of its wires is broken. Notice that this sensor is a hall-effect type, which means that there are 3 pins on the sensor , 1st is 12V supply, 2nd is 0V (earth) 3rd is a signal wire that transfers signal to the points I mentioned above.

Speedo not working renault scenic 2001

This problem may be one of two things, the most common could be a speed sensor, this can be tested with a meter and wheels spinning in drive, the meter connections would be connected to speed sensor connections as wheels spin with car in drive the readings will tell you if sensor is bad, another way would be to replace the sensor and see if that helps.

The other thing would be the speedometer it self, to test this you would need to replace it with a used one or have it tested at a place that deals with speedometer which are not to many around.
I would also check the fuses, all of them and locate the speed sensor on the ****** and make sure the connection is good and that there are no broken wires to it.then replace the speed sensor and then cluster, these are the steps i would take , most times the speed sensor solves this problem. good day

I have 1993 dodge dakota 3.9l v-6 with trouble codes 12,15 and 55 what do they mean

the trouble codes are as follows code 12 problem with battery connection. direct battery input tp pcm disconnected within the last 50 ignition key-on cycles. code 15 a problem with the vehicle distance/speed signal. no distance/speed sensor signal detected during road load conditions. code 55 completion of fault code display on check engine light. this is an end of message code. the speed sensor is located on the transmission/transfer case extension housing. check plug connection to speed sensor for power using an volt meter. connect the positive side of volt meter to the orange wire terminal and the negative side of volt meter to the black/light blue terminal. the voltage should be approximately 8.0 volts and to check the voltage from the pcm connect the positive end of volt meter to the white/orange wire terminal and the negative side ti the black/light blue wire terminal. signal voltage should be 5.0 volts. if there is no signal voltage signal, have the pcm checked out. if you have both signals from the terminals then remove the vehicle speed sensor and check the speedometer pinion for worn or missing teeth.

Took off one morning and ABS light and brake stay on and truck want idel. But brakes work fine and truck runs good. Could this be a vacum line problem? If so where should I look.

Chances are the speed pickup on the differential is either faulty or drity. I had the same thing happen to my 1998 Dodge Ram 2500. In addition to your symptoms, my speedometer stopped working below 25 mph.

the part number at Autzone = SU3356 . That is for ABS on rear wheels only. It is a different part number if you have 4 wheel ABS.
this is how to test if it is bad:

TESTING (1997 Models)

  1. Raise and safely support the vehicle securely on jackstands.
  2. Ensure the ignition key is in the OFF position.
  3. Disconnect the speed sensor electrical harness.
  4. Measure resistance between the terminals on the speed sensor
  5. Resistance should be 1000-2500 ohms.
  6. If resistance is not within specification, check the harness for continuity.
  7. If continuity exists, the sensor is faulty.

Air Gap

0900c152800c0d8a.jpg enlarge_icon.gifenlarge_tooltip.gif Fig. Measure and record the distance from the underside of the sensor flange to the end of the sensor pole piece
  1. Raise and safely support the vehicle securely on jackstands.
  2. Remove the sensor from the differential.
  3. Measure and record the distance from the underside of the sensor flange to the end of the sensor pole piece. This distance represents dimension "B". This dimension should be 1.07-1.08 in. (27.18-27.43mm). If dimension is not within specification, replace the speed sensor.
  4. Measure and record the distance between the sensor mounting surface of the differential case and the teeth at the top of the exciter ring. This distance represents dimension "A". This dimension should be 1.085-1.120 in. (27.56-28.45mm). If dimension is not within specification, replace the exciter ring.
  5. Subtract dimension "B" from dimension "A" to determine sensor air gap. The gap should be 0.005-0.050 in. (0.127-1.27mm).

Here is how to replace it:


  1. Raise the vehicle.
  2. Remove the brake line mounting nut, if fitted, and remove the brake line from the sensor stud.
  3. Remove the mounting stud from the sensor and shield.
  4. Remove the sensor and shield from the differential housing.
  5. Disconnect the wire and remove the sensor.

To install:
  1. Connect the harness to the sensor. Be sure the seal is securely in place between the sensor and wiring connector.
  2. Install O-ring on sensor if removed.
  3. Install sensor on differential; housing, sensor shield, mounting stud. Tighten to 18 ft. lbs. (24 Nm).
  4. Install the brake line on the sensor stud and install the nut.
  5. Lower the vehicle.

Spedometer and trip meter stopped working

You need to replace your speed sensor. It is located on the transmission, usually held in by 1 bolt, and has a wire clip attached. It is usually a easy repair, but sometimes the old speed sensor doesn't want to come out easy.
