1996 geo tracker 4x4 needs speedometer cable replaces


read the part about AIR BAGS first....
the FSM is 100% free, (factory service manual)
the cable just disconnects at the trans, easy.
its the speedo side that tricky
96 has the side impact braces there, making tad more tricky.

Speedometer and odometer don't work


I don't know what type of vehicle you have but usually when both the odometer and speedometer don't work, you need a new speedometer cable. My husband replaced the one on his 97 Tracker and it worked for 2 weeks and quit again. He just drives with the flow of traffic and in order to pass inspection he has to get a DMV Waiver every single year. He will never be able to sell it because he has no idea what the actual mileage on it is. He just drives it in bad weather and stuff since it has 4WD. I don't think the speedometer cable is very expensive. Good luck.

Replacing speedometer cable


I do not believe there is a speedometer cable in a 1992 Olds. I think that you have a speed sensor that transmits to the speedometer via two wires. The speed sensor is mounted near the drive shaft where two magnets transmit rotation speed to the sensor.

Speedometer not working


Check the flexible-cable that runs from the transmission to the the back of the speedometer.

Noisy speedometer


Your speedometer cable is getting ready to fail. I believe the replacement will need white lithium lubricate grease. Ask the store clerk.
