    in2twubble can u post a pic please? dunno if my prob is the same as yours but i have a hairline crack in the top track that runs under the warning lights on the printed circuit board. i initially fixed it with some rear window demister repair epoxy but this hasnt lasted and it looks like its "burnt" where the crack was. do you know if its safe to solder directly to the copper track or will i just burn a huge hole through the circuit board?

    We had the same sort of problem - all gauges not working on dash, except in cold. Pulled it out & with a little careful solder less than 10 min later everything's working fine. We found 1 tiny break in a circuit.
    After calling around wreckers, we were quoted $120 & $170 for a 2nd hand one. Definately worth the 10 min to check and fix it. Although I would highly recommend getting someone who knows how to use a soldering iron and has a steady hand to do it lol

I had the same problem on my g/f's 2000 lancer GLXi, (with tacho),
i fixed the problem by putting a jump wire on the back of the instrument cluster,
the fault was in the wiring to the tacho part & i drew up my own wiring diagrams for the cluster unit,
then traced the fault,
looking @ the back of the cluster unit, the top right hand screw for the speedometer,,, follow the track on the circuit-board, there is a link wire UNDER the board (there is a dotted line on top where it goes, i think its the left 1,,, there is 2) this track then goes to the bottom left screw on the tacho,,,
i soldered a small gauge wire from the bottom of the link solder joint (MAKE SURE ITS THE CORRECT LINK, THERE IS 2 SIDE BY SIDE) to the bottom right track on the vertical plug socket (its common pos for the warning lights) this is where the "MIRAGE" & other "CE LANCER" (without tacho) gets its speedometer & gauges power from,

kind regards waz
if anyone needs a photo i will pull out the dash again lol its only 6 screws

How do i fix the speedometer needle when it doesnt move from below zero?


no make or model or year so here is a guess
if it is a cable driven speedo --replace the inner cable
if it is an automatic ---replace the VSS on a later car or the sender unit on an earlier model

The symptoms you describe point to a loose or cracked speedometer cable. The cable likely needs to be replaced.

Speedometer cable transmission


no engine stated or transmission nor (worse) is it 4wd or 2wd.?
A/T or M/T , 4wd or 2wd, mine are both 4wd and M/T , know well.
Ill give all ways possible. (cert. tech)
you can do anything, there are no limits.
but there are consequences.. lots
context?
im not sure the question, is the one in car dead.?
and you plan on not fixing that? we need these facts.
or you want 2 speedos. one for front seat and 1 for back>?


see cluster page. here. free,
http://www.jeep4x4center.com/knowledge-base/index.htm?utm_source=cj#service

STOCK: 1997
the PCM measure speed via the VSS from the tranny and sends MPH
to the I/P cluster brain, (data comms) this brain then sends speed to you at the speedo meter needle (gage). (stock setup)
(bar stool, answer)
Please,
note the VSS sensor can be in 3 places. 2wd, 4wd and on 2 differ.
post car spec, and answers get easier
post photos of trans, better. (left and right side)

transmission type, and even mid year changes on transmissions can
change this.

so your car has no speedometer cable. and
on some early transmissions, you can add one, only getting the full
transmission facts on car (label) could you find this out.

if you remove the VSS, the ECU will go to limhome and never run right again, and 2 times that, if tranny is a Automatic, it shifts using the VSS data !
VSS means vehicle speed sensor.

so tell me , where would you use a cable, there is no cable port.
(look and see, is it missing, yes?)
so scratch mechanical.
is there other ways sure. lots. (no idea of application,.. me.)
Get a GPS speed meter (sold as a guage) stand alone gage.

or load Speedo (app) to any Android phone and Glue CEL to dash)

or pot a Tom Tom Nav on the dash and see it right there.
or you can buy a mag sensor and speedo setup, that fits
to the rear drive shaft that gives you speed, (after calibrating it)
(after market Vss sensor + 4wires + guage ) 1/2 mechanical.


btw , i do have this android app , used for true speed, my large tires
make my speedo in car lie, )

custom parts.

My speedometer stops working sometimes.


Find the speedo cable at transmission and see if it is loose.

Speedometer is at 50 MPH when stopped


Try this. Turn the key on, do not start the vehicle. Absence the needle on the speedo. It should move down and then back up. Before it moves back up turn off the key. Repeat this until the needle is at zero. Then start the vehicle. If the needle goes back to a spot other than zero, you may have to take it for a quick drive, than the speedo head is likely bad. This is a pretty common an known issue for gm's. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using FixYa.com!

1997 Saturn SC2 speedometer is stuck at 40mph. Replaced Speed Sensor and is still stuck. I even tapped on the cluster and got the needle back to zero but after driving it got stuck at 35mph. What else...


The mechanism or needle in the actual speedo display is sticking, is the needle hitting the glass? It is likely that you will have to change the instrument cluster.

I have a 1997 Dodge Voyager Ralleye and the speedometer needle fell off because the instrument panel shorts out once in a while and my wife smacked the top of the dash and it fell off...so I pulled apart...


with the needles off and the scanner set to calibrate the speedometer and all the rest of the needles need to be installed at 1/2 full range with the system on unless otherwise noticed by the scanner.

Speedometer is stuck under zero


Pull the rubber trip reset pin out slowly so all you see is the hole & the shaft. Take a long tin-tie (about 5 inch) & fish it inside the speedo to the needle & carefully bring it back counterclockwise when its back at least to "2-3 O'clock" hold it & turn your switch to coil...the needle will go back to zero. keep the tin-tie in your coin box if ever it happens again!
