Question about 1995 Mercury Sable

Speedometer erratic Needle bounces up & down at speeds over 60, Tachometer reads normal & cruise control works fine as the needle bounces up & down. Tough to know my actual speed. Any suggestions where to start looking for the problem?

    My tachometer is bouncing between 1500-2500 rpm on my 2007 carrera ever since i changed my battery. my car stalled a few times after the bouncing a few times. Other times, the tachometer would bounce as soon as i started the car and then return to normal, while the car stayed on. Am worried its either the battery or a bad throttle body?

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

Green sports light blinks , speedometer needle bounces or doesn't


Does your D4 blink and is your cruise control operating. When you start it does it sometimes start real rough and shake a lot? If so it's probably your ICM.

Unscrew the speedometer cable from the back of the gauge and from the transmission, take the cable out of the sheath, clean it off with carb or brake cleaner, oil it and put it back in. If that doesn't do it, replace cable assembly. If that doesn't do it, pull the speedometer gear out of the transmission and check for wear. Replace if needed.

Speedometer works sometimes on 95 neon


Common on those is the dash cluster connection itself, there is a plug on the back of it, that you pull off & i ended up using tweezers or needle nose pliers and just very slightly twisted or bent ends of the male spade (small) contacts on the cluster itself, one by one. re-attached everything & problem cured. If you just pull trim around the cluster, it will come off, then 3 or 4 screws and cluster will lift out of there, unplug harness, do as described & re-install. Let me know how you make out. Did it 2 or 3 times in my 95 neon & it cured it for a few years each time.

2002 vw jetta tdi - problem with rpm gauge?


Hi, Did you notice the motor actually reving higher when the tachometer was reading a higher rpm.. If it was it could be your transmission slipping.. Set your cruise control and listen to your motor while the tachometer starts moving erratically.. Good Luck

?? Does it move on the road ? You could have a worn out CV joint that allows the transmission to free-wheel. If that is the case, replace immediatly, or the transmission differential will fail.
