My speedometer does not seem to be lighting properly. The light just around the needles is lighting up, but the numbers are not. This just stopped working a few months ago! I am unsure what to do, do you have any suggestions? It is an aftermarket speedometer in a 2004 scion xb

Most likely the bulbs are either not plugged in all the way or they are burned out.

My speedometer doesnt work


Without key in ignition, depress and hold down the trip reset button by the speedometer until a code appears. Release button and the gauge cluster will go through a self diagnosis ( needles will move around and dash lights will blink). When needle returns to zero and lights go off, diagnosis will be completed and speedometer will be reset. Very easy fix.

I have a 1996 Honda Accord with 268k miles that sputters at the same timethe speedometer needle fluctuates wildly. But I do have a new Vehicle Speed Sensor. This typically only happens when the engin


I am no Honda expert, but a similar problem happened to my ex sister in-laws Ford Taurus. The speed odometer would jump around and it had trouble shifting (automatic transmission). After driving it I changed out the speed odometer sensor on the transmission and it's been fine ever since. I changed out the sensor because if the cars computer cannot tell how fast the car is traveling then fail safes in place go into effect and the computer will do it's best to keep the cars rpm's down based on the speed indicator and not let it shift or shift properly either. If it's getting false speeds then it will shut down the motor when the speed gets to high and allow it to run as the speeds fall (jumping speed odometer needle). It effects the transmission shift points also. It will either shift erratically or not shift out of say 2nd gear, so that the cars engine can't get damaged based on what signal the speed sensor is sending the computer.

I have a 1997 dodge grand caravan and the speedometer is stuck on 120 mph! I was traveling and the alternater went, so I got a new one and a new battery. The car is running fine, but the speedometer and...


you may have to take a magnet and put it over the speedometer needle and move the needle back to zero,this some times happens when a battery is connected as the voltage surge causes the needle to bounce some times to far and its not able to return to zero.you may need to have the system checked for proper charging,the voltage could be borderline causing the light to come on.you can try disconnecting the battery as it may reset the light.

THE SPEEDOMETER STOPS WORKING WHEN IT GETS HOT ON MY 2004 TRAIL BLAZER THANKS.


If everything else works ok, the vehicle drives normally, and all the other gauges are working then you may have a bad speedometer servo motor. This servo is what actually moves the speedometer needle to match the speed you are driving at. The cluster would need to come out and be repaired to fix this problem if this is the case.

Speedometer Needle for Hyundai 2004 Accent


If your transmission fluid level is okay, then you need a new speedometer cable. Its not terribly difficult to replace, but it does require you to pull the instrument cluster. A local Hyundai dealership might be willing to photocopy the specific speedometer cable replacement instructions out of the 2004 Accent shop manual.
