Question about Nissan Pathfinder

1 Answer

The speedometer quit working in my 1993 Nissan pathfinder. I can't seem to locate a cable coming through the firewall. How can I fix this problem and where can I find the parts? More to the point, where can I find an exploded view drawing of the parts involved?

Maybe it is electronically controlled and not cable driven

    I kind of figured that if there wasn't a speedometer cable, then it would have just a speed sensor. I'm actually having difficulty finding the replacement parts for either. Thanks, for the reply.

I cant find the speedometer cable

Don't remember when it was done, but there is no cable after a certain year, it went all electronic. if yours does have a cable, in would be connected to the speed sensor in the transmission and through the firewall to the speedometer. if you have a V6 the sensor is located on top of trans to the right of the vehicle.

1988 Nissan MaximThe speedometer quite working Is there a fuse??


If you got ignition lights it won't be the fuse.
Check that the speedo gear is ok and then check the cable is ok.
If all those are ok then check that the speedo head is working by spinning the cable in the speedo head.

Hope this helps

I have a 1990 Nissan Pathfinder. 3.0 Manual Transmission with an intermittant starting glitch. Starter/solonoid and ignition switch have both been replaced with no effect. I cannot seem to find the clutch...

The Clutch/Starter relay has a Blue Top and is located on the right inner fender near two other relays. It has quite large wires (12Ga.) and is often the culprit.

My 1993 honda civic speedometer and odometer do not work, how can I fix the problem?

Check the cables and connector for the speed sensor. It's located on the transmission towards the firewall. The connector has three pins on it. I just had to replace mine, went to the junkyard and paid $3 for the connector, because it was corroded. If the cables are clean and OK then replace the speed sensor. It ranges in price from $65 to $105.

My speedometer is not working, anybody got any ideas?

Chances are its the Speedometer cable which is connected from the Transmission to the Speedometer.

Look at the transmission and find a cable that goes up into your gauge cluster.
