Question about 1992 Nissan King Cab

1 Answer

Speedomoter cable plug has been unpluged and the wires cut

The speedomoter cable has been seperated at the conector plug and the two wires leading to the spedomoter cable have been cut. Will it work for a quick fix to simply splice the wires together. The cable itself is still intact. The conector plug coming off the transmission has a female end and the male counterpart normally housing the wires coming from the spedo-cable has been removed leaving bare wires.

Saturn 2003 Automatic door lock does not always initiate until I have been driving for some time (can be up to 30 minutes after driving) - until it clicks in the speedomoter does not work. As soon as...

Most likely problem is the neutral safety switch coming apart. There may be additional problems. Get a scan of the computer and post the trouble codes.

: A red light of a hand with a car has started flashing underneath the speedomoter and the interior lights won't turn off

First try to remove the red lead from your battey then replace it to reset the onboard programming. If this does not work, return for more solutions to the lights and indicator display.

So if i got a peice of a tree cought under my suv last night and when i pulled it out the abs, brake light, came on and also my speedomoter doesnt work now any suggestions

Sounds like the cable for the speedometer and/or the cable for a sensor was damaged. I wouldn't be surprised if you looked under your car and found a piece of wire dangling somewhere.

Good luck on this repair.

I have a 1983 Ford Falcon XE. The speedomoter

You most likely have a faulty speedometer transducer, or loose/poor connections to this unit.
The unit is generally unrepairable - replacement required.
The transducer unit is mounted on the gearbox at the tailshaft drive output.

2000 Hyundai Elantra--No Cruise Control, etc.

there are alot of harnesses to unplug.they missed a few by the sounds of it.
the cruise control is a cylinder that is vacuum operated and connected to the throttle cable.
check the vacuum lines and the wiring and make sure no wiring has been damaged installing the new engine.look for a plug that has clean looking pins,as the plug on an 8 year old car is clean on the inside.
