I think you should check the vehicle speed sensor. It is on the transmission near the cv joints. Also check the ground. I am thinking that the check engine light is indicating the VSS. Go to Autozone and ask them to read the engine code. Please post the results.

Speedometer stopped working check engine light came on 20 miles later car stalled and broke down later started up got home next morning speedometer works check engine light still on help


The car could not sense the signal from the sensor that determines engine speed and went into shutdown and limpin. First step is to retrieve the Trouble code and determine what is wrong. Do not drive the car.

Why would my check engine light come on and speedometer stop working at the same time on my 99 dodge stratus?


there is a code set in the pcm(computer). it could be a problem with the vehicle speed sensor(VSS) that would cause the speedometer to stop working turning on the check engine light to get things checked out.

Speedometer is not working an check engine light is on. What can be the problem?


On Hondas, I have seen this problem of the Check Engine light on when the speedometer did not work. This is a problem with the drive cable not turning. 1. The cable might be broken. 2. If any recent work was done to the car, someone may not have connected the speedometer cable back. This was exactly what happened to me after I was trying to troubleshoot a noise from the speedometer. 3. The cable is not turning due to a probem where it connects to the transmission.

I have a 1999 pontiac sun fire when I am driving sometimes my speedometer works and then it drops off do you know a fix.


does the check engine light come when this happens some vehicles when the speedometer stops working then the check light comes on does the engine change in the way it runs either at cruise or accelerating then this indicates a speed sensor in the transmission has an intermintant problem if there is no check engine light or change in the way the car runs then it is possible the problem is in the speedometer head or connections at the instrument cluster for the speedometer if the light is on then you need to have the computer checked to see if a code is set for the sensor,if so then that is probably were the problem is keep in mind it can also be a poor connection at the sensor,if this not were the problem is then it probably is in the cluster for the speedometer head or the speedometer head itself
