Im having a big problem finding ut what is causing my speedometer to just go haywire.. some times its dead and other times its jumping like crazy.. do you think its the pin that fits into the transaxle...


If the speedometer has a cable from the transaxle, the cable may be broken or ready to break.

No cable? The vehicle speed sensor may be bad. The speed sensor may be on the transaxle but it may also be on the back side of the speedometer cluster. My car has a cable and the speed sensor is on the cable right where it plugs into the back of the speedometer.

Were is the speed sensor located?


Wheel sensor use a magnetic pickup at the wheel.

The transmission has a VSS or Vehicle Speed Sensor installed on the area where the speedometer cable, gear usually is.

Speedometer Driven Gear REMOVAL & INSTALLATION NOTE: The 1992-95 S20 transaxle uses an electronic Vehicle Speed Sensor (VSS) and therefore the following procedure does not apply to it. Fig. 1: Speedometer driven gear assembly removal - GV and GW series transaxles 86837018.gif
  1. Raise the vehicle and safely support it with jackstands.
  2. Remove the 10mm bolts and the holder plate.
  3. Remove the speedometer gear holder.
  4. Remove the driven gear from the holder. To install:
  5. Replace the driven gear if worn or damaged.
  6. Install the driven gear to the gear holder.
  7. Install a new O-ring to the holder and lubricate it with oil.
  8. Install the assembly in the transaxle aligning the slot with the holder plate.
  9. Tighten the bolts to 9 ft. lbs. (12 Nm).

LEVEL CHECK -manual transmission The vehicle speed sensor (speedometer gear), which is located on the transaxle, serves as the manual transaxle's dipstick.
  1. Park the car on a level surface, turn the engine OFF and apply the parking brake.
  2. Locate the speedometer cable assembly where it enters the transaxle.
  3. Unplug the electrical connection from the vehicle speed sensor (speedometer gear).
  4. Disconnect the speedometer cable from the speed sensor.
  5. Wipe the area around the speed sensor with a clean rag, then loosen the speed sensor retaining bolt.
  6. Gently pry the speed sensor from the transaxle. Fig. 1: Location of the manual transaxle's fluid level marks — 1.8L engine 90981g14.gif
    Fig. 2: Location of the manual transaxle's fluid level marks — 1.9L and 2.0L engines 90981g15.gif

  7. Check the condition of the speed sensor O-ring and replace it if it is damaged.
  8. Check the fluid level on the speed sensor as illustrated.
  9. If the level is low, place a funnel in the speed sensor hole.
  10. Add the specified fluid to the transaxle until the FULL level is reached. Do not overfill the transaxle.
  11. Install the speed sensor and tighten the retaining bolt to 69–104 inch lbs. (8–12 Nm).
  12. Connect the speedometer cable.
  13. Engage the speed sensor electrical connection. Fig. 3: If necessary, add transmission fluid through a funnel into the speed sensor opening 90981g16.gif

My 1984 toyota corolla needs a new speedometer cable installed.


Removal & Installation The slightest bind in the speedometer cable can cause unpredictable behavior in the cruise control system. If the cruise control exhibits intermittent surging or loss of set speed symptoms, check the speedometer cable first
  1. Follow the appropriate procedure given previously for removal of the instrument cluster. The cluster need not be fully removed, but only loosened to the point of being able to disconnect the speedometer cable.
  2. Disconnect the speedometer cable and check that any retaining clamps or clips between the dash and the firewall are released.
  3. Safely raise the vehicle and support it on jackstands.
  4. Disconnect the cable fitting at the transmission or transaxle and lift the cable and case away from the transmission or transaxle.
  5. Follow the cable back to the firewall, releasing any clips or retainers.
  6. From inside the vehicle, work the speedometer cable through the grommet in the firewall into the engine compartment. It may be necessary to pop the grommet out of the firewall and transfer it to the new cable.
  7. When reinstalling, track the new cable into position, remembering to attach the grommet to the firewall securely. Make absolutely certain that the cable is not kinked, or routed near hot or moving parts. All curves in the cable should be very gentle and not located near the ends. Note the speedometer cable inside the housing must be lubricated with the proper lubricant before installing it to the vehicle.
  8. Attach any retaining clips, brackets or retainers, beginning from the middle of the cable and working towards each end.
  9. Attach the cable to the transmission or transaxle. Remember that the cable has a formed, square end on it; this shaped end must fit into a matching hole in the transmission or transaxle mount. Don't try to force the cable collar (screw fitting) into place if the cable isn't seated properly.
  10. Inside the vehicle, hold the other end of the cable with your fingers or a pair of tapered-nose pliers. Gently attempt to turn the cable; if it's properly seated at the other end, the cable will NOT turn more than about 1/4 turn. If the cable turns freely, the other end is not correctly seated.
  11. Lower the vehicle to the ground.
  12. Attach the speedometer cable to the instrument cluster, again paying close attention to the fit of the square-cut end into the square hole. Don't force the cable retainer.
  13. Reinstall the instrument cluster following procedures outlined previously. Road test the vehicle for proper operation.

Speedometer just quite working


Your speedometer-cable is broken.
You could replace it by disconnecting it from the transaxle, and also from the back of the speedometer itself. (disconnect the battery before you do this).
You will need to remove the instrument cluster to be able to get to the speedometer-cable at the back the speedometer.

My speedometer and odometer dont work


The speedometer is electronic, and uses pulses generated by the speed sensor to determine vehicle speed.
Disconnect the negative battery cable.
Unplug the electrical connector from the speed sensor (it's a 3-prong connector that clips onto the speed sensor, which is on the transaxle. Follow the cable down if you can).
Remove the three bolts securing the speed sensor to the transaxle.
Remove the sensor from the tranaxle. Be careful not the lose the drive link. It is a very small part that connects the sensor to the transaxle. It is at the bottom of the sensor, inside, and at the top of where the sensor connects to the transaxle. (It might have gotten lost during the engine switch, if they used your original speed sensor but connected to a transaxle that was with the new engine, or was removed from the car in order to connect it to the engine before it was installed). You might be lucky and find out that they simply didn't plug the connector back into the sensor.
Sensor installation is the reverse of removal.
I hope this is helpful.

My speedometer on my saturn 1999 sl stop working at 22mph


This is most likely due to a poor connection from your speedometer cable to your transmission/transaxle. Often when a transmission is replaced this happens. If you have a way to identify your speedometer/transaxle connection. Locate it, if it seems to be loose remove it and aggressively clean w/proper solvent. If that is not the case then you have a faulty instument cluster and it needs to be replaced.

93 subaru legacy gt cuts out at around 100kph check engine light comes on, restart car and it is fine. car is a auto and doesnt seem to do it as much if car is in 3rd instead of drive


Check The Vehicle Speed Sensors.

The Legacy has 2 Vehicle Speed Sensors (VSS): VSS1 is located inside of the transaxle; VSS2 is located in the combination meter assembly.

VSS1
  1. Disconnect the electrical harness from the transaxle.
  2. Connect an ohmmeter across the transaxle's electrical harness terminals 9 and 16.
  3. The resistance should be 450-650 ohms.
  4. After testing, reconnect the electrical harness.
VSS2
  1. Remove the instrument cluster from the instrument panel.
  2. Disconnect the electrical connectors and the speedometer cable from the instrument cluster.
  3. Connect an ohmmeter or continuity tester across the combination meter terminals 7 and 11.
  4. Insert a small screwdriver in the speedometer cable drive socket.
  5. Rotate the speedometer drive and note the continuity across the VSS terminal. Continuity should turn ON/OFF 4 times per speedometer drive revolution.
