This is due to the Vehicle Speed Sensor (VSS). I had the same problem with my 95 Accord. The first option is to try cleaning the connection first; if that doesn't work, you can replace it for about $40.

Checking same problem.Found that if the cruise control works the speed sensor is good.if you can tap into the orange wire with the ignition on;jack the car up and slowly turn one of the front wheels and watch the voltage it should like start out low and go up as you rotate the wheel.Yea OK,if the cruise works the sensor is ok and its probably the speedometer assembly(printed circuit board)

Got all gears but it wont go into over drive an the speedo wont go past 60 mph the speedo is not cable is this a electrical problem or sensor


run the fault codes
it could be a VSS sensor that is not communicating with the TCM to select OD
it also reports to the speedo to show speedo reading

In neutral, speedometer gauge is bouncing, same as when driving on cruise. It is cutting off and coming back, and looks like trans. Is heating.


run the fault codes but it may be a VSS sensor failing
the speedo reading and cruise control all rely on a VSS signal.

How to repair speedometer 95 sidekick


hey and oldie but goodie.
why not post the full symptoms. ????

Speedo dead, makes noise, bounces? what? stuck high? what?
odometer dead.
CEL glows running, the check engine light glows, running
and you insert the 1cent paper clip in the DLC connector and you get
code flashing. code 24, VSS dead?
http://www.fixkick.com/CEL/CEL.html

if yes, the cable has snapped. (fell off at either end)
if not VSS dead, then the speedo is dead
if both odometer and speed are dead and VSS are dead the
snapped cable, or cable fell off rear of speedo head.
if VSS is not bad. (no 24s)
and only speedo is dead but , odometer is good
then that means the actual speedo clock inside the head is bad.

to repair a dead speed/cluster, you replace the whole head
if real frisky then you do this.
suzuki even sells new clocks, but are very expensive
what i do is find a used head. and use that. (car-parts.com) or at fleabay.
sometimes i mix 3 heads to get one, good head.
that is all you can do, on old cars unless rich, and $200 head is pocket change.

Where is speedo head for 1997 pathfinder


Do you mean by the speedo head the VSS or vehicle speed sensor that is on the tail shaft end of the gearbox with two wires coming out of a connector and which sends an electronic signal to the instrument cluster which displays a reading onthe speedo?

No speedo abs light on and od light flashes


You need a live data scanner to check VSS signals, but most likely the speedometer is the source of the problem.

There is a gear that drives the sensor gear much like the old speedo cable gear.
If you connected the sensor and the check engine light went off, chances are the sensor is working.

Hi, I'm not familiar with the part, but the diagram shows it behind the glove box next to the ECM. Go in thru the bottom--remove the sound barrier, remove the EMC, then remove the buffer. What I recommend is to see if you can get one at a salvage yard. Otherwise, they are about $50 on eBay. Thanks for using FixYa.

Speedo wont go past 55 truck runs fine


Hi
The transmission and speedo COULD be the VSS (Vehicle Speed Sensor) and or related wires. The Tach is a seperate circuit that gets signal from Distributor and power is fed through the "Gauges" fuse. The only way I see them being a related concern is either The ground (G200) and is located Behind the left side of the IP, below the fuse block, on the tie bar. the other way would be the IP cluster itself.
I think you MAY have 2 issues. I would get the VSS checked and make sure your getting a signal to the VSS buffer (located next to the PCM, around the glove box area). Make sure the buffer is sending the signal out. A Scan tool SHOULD be able to assist you in this. If there is NO VSS signal the transmission will not shift properly, if at all.
Also your speedo will drop off with no VSS.
As stated, this is just advise from experience and published material.
If in doubt, please take it to a Repair shop in your area your familiar with.
