Speedo sensor faulty how difficult to replace

How do you know the VSS - vehicle speed sensor is bad ? The speedometer not working , have a DTC - diagnostic trouble code ? Most vehicles now ,from 1996 on , the VSS is an input to the PCM/ECM or TCM-engine control module . The vehicles have a network that modules talk on (serial data bus ) , The engine computer sends speed data to the instrument cluster ,where the microprocessor in the instrument cluster interprets an controls the stepper motor setting the speedo .
What year , make an model vehicle do you have ? GM vehicles had a problem with bad stepper motors !

Instrument cluster panel in s80 volvo not working

Check your fuses as fuses do this too contact when cold then as they warm up they uncontact. (Cheaper) but sounds like you have a fault in the cluster send it to a speedo shop

Won't turn over. The instrument cluster won't work

ok iif the instrument cluster does not work.. before i give a solution can you tell me if it have atach and temp gage not a temp gage witha idiot light but a actual temp gage.. because if temp gage and fule gage hands are not in their proper place like if yo uhave a 1/4 tank of gas and it reads way past full and the temp gage is gone out of site way past say 240 degrees then it is your speedo head .. have this trouble the other day on a chevy 2002 cavalier.. replaced the head and wahla the car started. it seems the speedo head is tied in with the computer system on these cars.. and if the tach is not working you need not worry if you cannot find a head with a built in tach.. a normal speedo head with out the tach part will also work.. just when you change the head count the pins on the old one and compare it to the new one if they match then just plug it in and car should start..

Odometer not working

Could be that speedo cable has become disconnected or that the inner shaft has broken. The speed cable is connected between the back of the instrument cluster and the left side of the transmission. Check under the car that the cable is securely fitted to the side of the transmission. Disconnect it and and check on the condition of the square drive flexible shaft. The spinning of this inner shaft is what conveys the output shaft speed of the transmission to the instruments. The instrument cluster can be removed but pushing a length of coat hanger wire with right angle turn on its end between the the cluster and the dashboard surround. Turn the coat hanger to hook behind the cluster and pull forward to remove it. Try several points around the cluster. It is best to disconnect the speedo drive cable to withdraw the cluster (after electrical connections have been disconnected. check that the speedo cable is secure to the back of the instruments. If you remove the cluster completely follow the path of the speedo cable. If you have to replace the cable, tying a length of string to the speedo cable end first and posting the string down the cable path will help the re-installation enormously. Simply pull the string whilst reinstalling the instrument cluster until the end of the speedo can be got hold of. Refit the speedo cable to the transmission only after the instrument cluster is back in place.

Speedo works sometimes and doesnt work sometimes?

It's unlikely you may have a loose instrument cluster connector unless someone was previously working around that area behind it. If no activity before hand then I'm guessing you may have a deteriorating instrument cluster that needs replacing. You can find people selling in ebay (lower price) or directly from the dealer.

Speedometer doesn't work in my 98 Mits Galant and only warm air.

Well the speedo problem could well be behind the actual speedo gauge. Theres a long square shapped plastic piece on the end of the cable the fits in to the back of the gauge, as it turns it makes the hand on the dial read the speed, In most cases the plastic bit breaks away from the cable which will make the speedo read zero.You will have to get another speedo cable and replace it the same route as your original one.You have to take off the dash surround to get the gauge cluster out for a start to see if its broken at that end.

Speed omeder

Sounds like your speedometer cable is binding inside its sleeve.If you can get it loose from the rear of the instrument cluster in the dash (typically just pull the entire instrument cluster assembly out the front after taking out a couple or three screws) just shoot some dry graphite powder into it (available at Ace or Home Depot). Don't use oil or WD-40, as that will probably make it worse. It's doubtful that it's the transmission itself, the speedo is a simple thing driven by a cable from the transmission to the dash.
