How do I remove the speedometer cable from the back of the instrument panel on a 1997 Toyota Tacoma? It has the 2.4 engine as I know the V-6 Tacomas had an electronic speedometer.

SOURCE: how to remove starter from 1997 toyota tacoma

REMOVAL & INSTALLATION

On all engines except the 2UZ-FE, the starter is external, mounted in a conventional manner, alongside the engine block. One the 2UZ-FE, however, the starter is mounted in the 'V' of the engine, between the cylinder head banks. The entire intake manifold assembly must be removed to access the starter motor and solenoid. (Toyota calls the solenoid a "magnetic switch.")


Except 2UZ-FE Engine

Fig. Unfasten the starter mounting bolts . . .

Fig. . . . then pull the starter toward the front of the vehicle to remove it (other components removed for clarity)

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Remove the nut and disconnect the battery cable from the magnetic switch on the starter motor.
  3. Detach the remaining electrical connections at the starter.
  4. Remove the nuts and/or bolts securing the starter to the bell housing, and then pull the starter toward the front of the vehicle to remove.

To install:
  1. Insert the starter into the bell housing being sure that the starter drive teeth are engaged with the flywheel teeth, NOT jammed against the flywheel.
  2. Tighten the attaching hardware to 29 ft. lbs. (39 Nm) and replace all electrical connections.

  1. Connect the positive battery cable (starter wire) to the starter.
  2. Connect the negative battery cable.

2UZ-FE Engine

ae7791c.jpg

Fig. The starter motor on this 2UZ-FE engine is installed under the intake manifold between the cylinder heads, making it a lengthy procedure to perform
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Remove the cosmetic/acoustic engine cover.
  3. Disconnect the accelerator cable and intake air connector.
  4. Remove the intake manifold assembly. For additional information, please refer to the following topic(s): Engine Mechanical, Intake Manifold.
  5. Remove the two bolts holding the starter motor to the engine block and lift the starter away from the block.
  6. Detach the electrical connectors from the starter and remove the starter from the vehicle.

To install:
  1. Installation is the reverse of the removal procedure. Make sure all electrical connections are tight and that the harness is secure.
  2. Install the starter and torque the two bolts to 29 ft. lbs. (39 Nm).
  3. Install the intake manifold.
  4. Connect the negative battery cable.

Hope this help (ermember rated this).

97 tacoma vehicle speed sensor location check engine light p0500


On the early Tacoma, the speed sensor is located in the cluster and is driven by a cable attached to the transmission.
Later models moved the sensor to the transmission tailshaft or transfer case and eliminated the cable.
If you do not have a speedometer cable, your sensor is on the transmission.

Hi, it's possible the bulb is burned out or not making good contact with the circuit board. It should come on during the bulb check when you first turn the key on. Pull out the cluster and check the bulb. If it's good, see if you can clean the contact surfaces to get it working again. Or, move to another state where they don't worry about stupid things like a light bulb.

The speedometer and odometer does not work anymore on my 1997 toyota tacoma.


Hello and welcome to FixYa!

As a first course of action I strongly suggest that you check the fuse for it can be blown that's why it's not working. If the fuse is fine then the problem surely will be on the cluster itself. If that's the case, the instrument cluster will surely need replacement.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

Noisy speedometer


The click you are hearing might be a dry speedometer cable. Applying grease to the inner cable will most likely help this problem. The problem is getting to the cable behind the speedometer/dash panel. You can also get to the cable from under the truck. if you crawl under the truck and look at the smaller end of the transmission, you will see the cable screwed into the tail piece of the transmission. Remove the cable from the transmission and pull the inner cable out of the outer cable. The inner cable is what spins and causes the speedometer to turn. Take regular wheel bearing grease in the palm of your hand and slid the inner cable through the grease then put the inner cable back in the outer cable. When the inner cable gets to the back of the speedometer, you will have to slowly turn the cable and give a slight pressure inward to seat the inner cable into the speedometer.

Hope this helps.

Good Luck
