Bad or broken speedo cable
or on the transmission where the cable is connected to you need a replacement 9 dollar part called speedo bullet
also your speedometer could have gone bad on ya you need certified tech to take out of dash and replace with proper mileage for new speedometer

the other trouble could be your alternator is giving out this would show engine light coming on

Dashboard is dead


hello Sylvia i think you have had your dash board taken out at some
stage previous to your owning it, there is a big electrical connector
that hooks up to the printed circuit board behind your dash. you will
need to get a techy to pull off the plastic masks around your dash
and unscrew the speedo console. we used to get alot of this fault
here in New Zealand when sellers of vehicles were clocking the
speedo's to show a lower mileage reading on the odometer, very
nasty.
cheers bucky

1999 ford escort speedometer dosen't work. Dose this have a fuse? Where is the VSS located? PICTURE service engine light went on around same time asscioated with speed sensor?


it is very common for the VSS to fail on the escorts of that vintage. the VSS sensor is located on the top side of transmsision near the fire wall. it is accessed from under vehicle while on lift, near center of vehciel, there will be a few wires going to it. this sensor has a tendancy to rot into the transmsison based on you geographical location (rust belt??) it can be very difficult to remove it from the transmssio n..they usually break when they do come out (if you live is a rusty area)

Hi. My ford escort 97 lx wagon transmission is not shifting anymore it is stuck in first gear(althought if i put it in neutral while driving and switch back to drive it picks up for a few seconds...) and...


My brothers 2000 ford ranger the fuse went out to the speed sensor. I change the speed sensor because it did not shift out of 1st gear and the speedometer stopped working. I then found out the fuse was missing in the fuse panel. My brother could not tell where the fuse went but when I put a fuse in it started shifting and the speedometer started working. everything was good. You should have a code if it is the speed sensor.

check the fuse for the speedo, (fuse #35 interior fuse box) if it is ok the electronic speedo will need repair, this is a common problem since Ford went to electronic speedometers.
