Does the odometer work?If so the priblem is in the circuit board in the instument cluster.The resistance on both wires going to speed sensor should be 5 ohms or a little less.If it is greater than that you probaly have a bad connection at pcm or a bad cluster.

Recently replaced speedometer sensor on my 2005 Chevy Tahoe speedometer still does not work do you know how to fix it


Yes , replace the stepper motor inside the instrument cluster . The speedometer sensor as you call it is actually a VSS - vehicle speed sensor. If the transmission shifts good an engine runs good it's not the VSS bad. You have to know how it works to fix it . The VSS is an input to the PCM/ECM - engine computer , The PCM/ECM calculates engine speed then sends this info to the instrument cluster over the serial data communication bus . GM has had bad stepper motors in that year vehicle . How to repair GM Instrument Cluster Speedometer Gauge Stepper

Odometer not working on 1997 suburban


Hello BDG, The answer is no. If the VSS fails on your 97 Chevy, you will lose both speedometer and odometer functions. If your speedo is still working and your odometer is not, you have a broke odometer. This is a common failure with a lot of the older vehicles that were fitted with the mechanical odometer registers. Feel free to contact Kincer's Service for a repair salution.

I have a 2003 Chevy Trailblazer with a malfunctioning tachometer and speedometer. What is the likely part I need to replace?


Sounds like a bad speedometer sensor. Usually located on the transmission. The only way to fix the speedometer is to replace the sensor.
The Variable Speed Sensor (VSS) has failed. You will have to get it replaced. Both are driven by an electrical signal sent to the cars computer by the VSS, and converted to SPEED, and DISTANCE driven.

2002 Nissan Quest speedometer not working


it is likely the VSS, vehicle speed sensor on the top rear of the trans. one 10 mm bolt, but often the VSS won't come out due to corrosion. spray with penetrating oil.

The VSS sends a signal to the speedo cluster. Cluster converts signal and sends it to speedo and odometer and also to engine computer.

If your cruise control also does not work, it is VSS.

Try prying back and forth at base after soaking.

well does it light up? if its an 89 I don't remember there being a digital offered
but the VSS (vehicle speed sensor) controls the speedometer its located on the transmission if its a 2 wheel drive and on the transfer if its a 4 wheel drive a scan tool (not a code reader) is your best tool to help you diagnose this one to see if the VSS is producing a signal to the Speedometer unit
