It's a 2002 Mazda Protoge 5 speed manual trans. The speedometer just stopped working, could the cable just have come loose or is it no good? Where is the cable located on the car?

There is no cable. It has an output speed sensor located on back of transmission. It senses rpm & gives info to computer & speedometer.

SPEEDOMETER QUIT


You may need another speedometer. The speed sensor sends a signal to both the speedo and the odometer. So if the sensor fails, both meters would stop working.
The speedo gets power from the same circuit as the warning lights.

2002 Jeep Liberty Sport with the 2.4L (manual Tran.) Speedometer stopped working, Check engine is on, and now it's stalling between shifting and at low rpm.


Speedometer cable may have broken. You can't tell from the outside of the cable, since it has a plastic shield. You have to disconnect it from the transmission to check it. If you can turn the cable inside the shield easily, it is broken.

i would locate your vehicle speed sensor and check to see if the connection is loose or messed up in some way, and it may be possible that its just ready to be replaced, hope this helps and good luck!

I need to know where the speedometer cable plugs into the transmission please on a 1994 honda civic 5-speed


It goes into trans just behind engine block. If yours trans is on the drivers side than lean over fender look between engine block and firewall. If other side lean over that fender and due the same.

'99 Beetle cruise control surge and speedometer has slight flutter.Occasionally speedometer drops to zero mph and cruise will then stop working. The "surge" is so bad that you can not drive with cruise on....


I would take a blind guess and sat the speedo sensor has an issue. 99' beetle should have an 01M auto, and the speed sensor is also the dipstick for the final differental drive. search around this area of the trans for the cable and snoop around. loose at the trans ? bad connection somewhere??

Why wont my speed odometer work on my 2002 dodge neon rt????please help


The speedometer is driven by the computer which uses the Vehicle Speed Sensor, which is located on the transmission, to determine how fast the vehicle is traveling. It is not uncommon for the VSS to go out unexpectedly, usually the check engine light will come on when it malfunctions, and the computer will lock the transmission in 2nd gear, which will allow you to limp the car in to a repair shop.

My speedometer and odometer stopped working


Your speed sensor has failed. The vehicles speedometer is not cable controled, it's controled by a sensor in your transmission. It's a easy fix, but the new sensor is about $80 to $100 depending on where you get it.
