Question about Dodge Dakota

I have a 1998 Dodge Dakota 3.9L V6 with a 5 spd. manual transmission. The Speedometer quit working. The oil pressure gauge and stuff works but the speedo does not. Could this be a speed sensor problem?

    I have the same prob with my 98 Dakota. it is the speed sensor.The spedo doesn't move unless I go ver 53 mph. I also have probs with my ABS, which is probably related to the sensor problem.

Yes the speed sensor on the top of the diferencial controls the speedometer, milage, and the ABS breaking system. that light should be on as well, I had the same problem for about a year until I got myself a diagnostic computer, plugged it in and there I got all my codes.

What is the mostcommon reason the speedometer quits working on a 1991 Dodge D-150


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.

The speedometer isn't working?


Sounds like the speedo has not been re connected. If its a cable it might have come out of the gearbox end within the cable sleeve.

Speedometer, Odometer, Oil Pressure Gauges are out


it could be a fuse....since a fuse is use just incase you get an overflow in current...and this prevents damage to gauges......

Speedometer intermittent and ABS/Brake light stays on


it sounds like it is the speedometer cable that goes from the speedometer gauge to the transmission is wearing out.unless you have done one of these before then i would suggest having someone do it for you.
