Two seperate problems. Your transmission like needs a rebuild, one of your bands or clutch paks are failing. That's why it will only do one gear. The no speedo reading, is likely a broken or disconnected speedometer cable.

Sounds like you need to test all your speed sensors or VSS switch in the transmission in the rear end too if speedometer is not functioning if this is a truck or rear wheel drive auto, reply back with year make model please or i will have to delete your question thanks the FixYa team.

My ABS and Brake light goes on alot. Also sometimes my gages will go up and down for no reason. That is what they call the GM shuffel. It happens to alot of GM vehicles.
I never had a problem with loosing power or the tranny stuck in second gear. Sounds electrical, if no one can help here, get that thing to a garage before your hurt.

My 98 concorde is stuck in second gear and the speedometer quit working at the same time what would make it do this


I would say the speed sensor in the transaxle is the problem with both issues. The body computer needs the speedo to tell which gear to use, and second gear is the default when the system is in fail mode.

Speedometer does not work. I have a 95 Rodeo, 3.2 six cylinder, 4X4, I replaced the speed sensor in the rear and still not working...Any suggestions would be appreciated.


Take out the speedometer gear and hook it to a cordless dril (electric drills might spin it too fast). Turn the ignition to the "on" position, but do not start the car. Have someone watch the speedometer from inside the vehicle as you spin it.

If the speedometer gauge works and stays constant, then you know your problem is with the drive gear or the worm gear on the inside of the transmission.

If it doesn't work, then you know that there is an electrical issue with the speed sensor circuit or something in the gauge cluster is broken.

I had a problem in my Explorer with the speedometer gauge jumping around (and that really messes with teh 4WD system). I chased it for a couple of weeks only to find out that the nut that secures the worm gear for the speedometer in the transmission was loose and devoured the drive gear.

Car will not shift out of second gear. while driving it shifts fine to second gear from first gear but it stays in second gear the entire time driven


it is going in limp mode,
if your speedometer is not working will cause this,that would be a speed sensor,or the other two reasons would be the input or output sensors on the tranny

it might be your vehicle speed sensor. It affects your speedometer, your cruise control and your trans shift points. Also, your throttle position sensor (TPS) affects shift points.

How to fix my odometer in 1991 plymouth acclaim


If the speedometer is working but not the odometer it's in the speedometer it's self. replacing the speedometer cluster is the easiest their available on ebay or your local salvage yard.
what happens is the trip odometer wears and sticks, theres a small motor on a circuit board with a plastic sun gear, inside the speedometer housing. it drives both the odometer and the trip odo
the teeth strip off the sun gear and odometer stops.
