I would think that you might have a bad speedometer head. You could have a bad drive gear, though I never seen that happen in my experience.

A 2001 jimmy gmc my speedometer dose not work and my transmision will not shift i changed the sensor and it didnt fix the problem i changed the filter didnt help what else could cause this problem


What sensor did you change . VSS - vehicle speed sensor or output speed sensor .
The ideal what to find the problem would be to hook up a factory scan tool to see the VSS is put out a signal to the PCM/ECM , then see if the PCM /ECM is sending info to the instrument cluster ,. And knowing how these this work couldn't hurt either .

The IPC displays the vehicle speed based on the information from the PCM. The PCM converts the data from the vehicle speed sensor to a 4000 pulses/mile signal. The IPC uses the vehicle speed signal circuit from the PCM in order to calculate the vehicle speed. The speedometer defaults to 0 km/h (0 mph) if a malfunction in the vehicle speed signal circuit exists.

Have the vehicle checked for DTC"S - diagnostic trouble codes . No all code's turn on the check engine light .
DTC P0608
The PCM creates the vehicle speed output signal by pulsing the circuit to ground. The PCM pulses the circuit at the same rate as the vehicle speed signal input. The PCM monitors the voltage on the vehicle speed signal circuit. If the PCM determines the voltage is out of the normal operating range, a DTC sets.

Install a scan tool.
Raise the vehicle's drive wheels. Refer to Lifting and Jacking the Vehicle in General Information.
Start the engine.
Place the transmission into drive for an automatic transmission or third gear for a manual transmission.
With the scan tool, observe the Vehicle Speed Sensor parameter in the PCM data list.
Does the Vehicle Speed Sensor parameter match the speedometer display?

This is something best taken to a qualified repair shop . This could be a wiring issue , or the PCM or the instrument cluster .

2.4l. Where is speed sensor located?


Vehicle Speed Sensor (VSS) (M15)
On the right rear of the automatic transmission ?
speedometer not working ? New speed sensor won't fix it ! Unless your having transmission shifting problems an other drivability problems . The vehicle speed sensor is an input to the ECM engine computer .
Speedometer
The instrument panel cluster (IPC) displays the vehicle speed based on the information from the ECM. The IPC receives the vehicle speed information from the BCM via the serial data circuit. The speedometer defaults to 0 kmh (0 mph) when the following occurs:
?€¢
The engine control module (ECM) detects a malfunction in the vehicle speed sensor circuit.


?€¢
The IPC detects a loss of serial data communication from the BCM.

2000 sonata check engine lite came on, transmission went to 2 nd gear. computer said idler control valv bad.put in new, reset computer, drove 100 yds. check eng lite 2nd gear again, now computer said speed...


The output speed sensor is located on top of the transmission output shaft, this will send speed value to the transmission control module (TCM).
The vehicle speed sensor is installed on the differential of the transmission, and sends speed value to speed gauge on instrument cluster.

Check also IAC valve and look for vacuum leaks using an hand tool gauge(Vacuum Gauge and Fuel Pump Pressure).

I put a new speed and change sensor for my 1994 chevy silverado l


if you put in speed sensor make sure you didnt cross thread the sensor this would be bad
if you also got a code for the speed sensor remember you have to clear your codes when your works done but before you clear them right them down so you know what codes was in your truck use a scan tool to clear codes

Speedometer quit working


you might need a new speedo cable but if its a sensor you could need a new sensor and that might not be cheap.
