Broken Speedometer?


You are correct in thinking if the speed sensor fails the check engine light should be on, and you should experience problems with the transmission.
It sounds like just the speedo has failed.

You need the sensors of those functions, which you don't have installed. I would go back to the correct part.

Speedometer doesn't work and it doesn't change gears right


vehicle speed sensor on the transmission, it fails and the speedometer will not work, it could affect shifting because the computer does not know the speed you are traveling

Digital dash does not work properly, gauge just flash and speedometer goes up to 20mph.


The digital speedometer went out in my 88 continental as well.. I had to go to a junk yard to find a whole other cluster.. 1 year later, it doesn't work again. (-_-) I could afford to put a new speedometer in, its just hard as hell to find one for the 88.

88 eldorado instrument panel is dead, including speedometer and fuel gauge. None of the digital instrument panel gauges are lit up. How can I troubleshoot this problem? TJ


It sounds like the problem is your dash cluster itself. you should be able to find another dash cluster for an 88 DeVille in almost any junk yard.

My speedometer on our 1993 Cadillac Allante only works about 15% of the time. Digital cluster dash set up. Any ideas on what the problem is.......? Ziproser@aol.com Ray!


The Speed sensor found near the transmission was replaced. The part is not expensive, however the labor time & effort needed getting to and from the sensors location is the most difficult part of this solution. The digital speedometer seems to be working just fine now.
