A bad shorted out component in the cluster could blow the fuse which supplies power to the cluster and that would knock out everything in the cluster. A fuse protects the components on the circuit and when it blows out replacement fuses are just going to blow out again and again until you find and fix the component which is causing the fuse to blow. If everything else in the cluster is working, then I would be looking at changing the speedometer itself or the sending unit on the transmission which provides it information about speed.

Sounds like a bad or lose fuse. Take a look in the fuse panel and look for a loose fuse or blown fuse.

My speedometer stopped working and i dont know how to fix it.

It is probably a fuse that has blown. Check your fuses and replace the dashboard cluster fuse that has blown.

Speedometer and cruise control not working

Look in your owner's manual for the fuse layout and see where the cruise system fuse is and check it for a blown fuse. If it is replace with the rating listed in the guide. If not then you may have to have an automotive electric shop troubleshoot the cause such as a bad ground, blown inline fusible link or other. If it is a fuse and you replace it and all is working then it blows again you should have a shop troubleshoot the cause. Blown fuses generally are due to a short in the circuit. On some vehicles the "clockspring" in the steering column can cause lack of operation in the horn and cruise control but since you mentioned speedometer and cruise it is likely a fuse.

I have a 2003 Hyundai Santa Fe and suddenly the speedometer, odometer and trip setting have stopped working.

I would check all of your fuses to make sure none of them have blown. Also your odometer and trip settings are based off of you speedometer is if it breaks it will take keep other things from working until it is repaired. also if you feel any difference in your shifting it can be due to the fact the your speedometer is not working I would take it to a certified auto shop as soon as possible if a blown fuse is not the cause of your problem.

I hope this helped.

Thank you,

fuse #10 in the fuse box inside the van under the dash this fuse will be blown HOWEVER the reason the fuse is blown is your real problem
the most likely cause is the reduntant bps on the master cylinder just unplug it and the fuse should stop blowing.
you can replace it if you want.
be very carefull of leaking brakefluid on harness below this sensor if brakefluid has leaked into harness and is not attended too it can cause major problems.
