This is a sensor setup. The sensor is mounted inside the transfer case (if its a 4X4). If it 2 wheel drive, than its at the back of the trans by the outputshaft. Its a 2 wire sensor in both cases. Easy to remove. Take out holding screw and remove sensor. But you probably need a new speedo head. Have seen some break and have replaced few. More than speed sensor it self. Good luck.

Speedometer not working


Assuming that your van is driving smoothly and your gears are shifting smoothly, start by checking your tranny fluid level. If it is low, that may be one of a few possible problems. If fluid level is fine, your speedo sensor may have a loose connection or could be going out which is what may be triggering the check engine light. I had that happen on my Jeep Cherokee. Speed sensor stopped working and the light was on constantly. Remember, if your speedometer sensor does not work, your odometer and trip meter will not turn either. Speedo sensors are not very expensive and pretty easy to change. Start with the easy tasks first: check fluids, check connections, replace sensor. If that doesn't work, get it into a shop (or talented and well tool-supplied buddy) and get a code(s) for the problems. Good luck!

SPEEDOMETER QUIT


You may need another speedometer. The speed sensor sends a signal to both the speedo and the odometer. So if the sensor fails, both meters would stop working.
The speedo gets power from the same circuit as the warning lights.

1992 ford f150 speedometer quit working and ABS light is on, also odometer is not working


where the speedometer cable goes into the transmission under the car, when removed from the trans there is a small gear that gets worn out over time.. that little gear or the entire speedometer cable needs to be replaced. An easy and inexpensive fix. I believe the ABS light is on because the computer needs the speed of the car to make its calculations for braking. As long as the speedometer is not working, it cannot do that. So after the speedometer cable issue is fixed, that issue should be fixed as well.

Speedometer works intermittently


hi, sounds like the vehicle speed sensor mounted on the transmission is going bad or loosing signal. generally, honda speedometers work for life, i've only ever replaced one. now, this is a split year so it may have just a cable going to the transmission instead of an electronic sensor. if the cable is loose, this may also cause this issue. you should probably have a professional shop take a look as the speedometer cable/sensor is very buried in the back of the engine compartment under the air intake hose and behind the starter. also, if there is a check engine light on when the speedo stops working, this should be an easy diagnostic for a technician to do, it would likely be the speed sensor causing this engine light.

My speedometer and odometer stopped working


Your speed sensor has failed. The vehicles speedometer is not cable controled, it's controled by a sensor in your transmission. It's a easy fix, but the new sensor is about $80 to $100 depending on where you get it.

Speed meter problem


If the speedometer is not working, try replacing the cable from the back of the speedometer to the engine or the transmission.
