Question about 1998 Dodge Durango

1 Answer

Speedometer and odometer doesnt work. all other gauges work. i have replaced 2 speed sensors one on rear end and one on transmission. that wasnt the problem. i have checked all fuses and found nothing. i bought this vehicle used from a private owner. the dash panel around the instrument cluster has been replaced so i took it off and checked for any problems with the cluster and found nothing. i dont know what else to try??????????

Hi, does the transmission shift properly? Does the cruise control work?

The speed signal is still there if the transmission is shifting. To confirm I would watch scan tool data and see if the speed signal is being read by the cluster. The speed sensor is wired to the engine computer, and from there it sends the signal on the network to the cluster, ABS and other systems.

i believe it has a vehicle speed sensor in the rear diff that is probably your problem as the sensor you replaced in the transmission was probably the output shaft speed sensor

The speed odometer is not working


If the speedometer is not working but the odometer is, the problem is usually in the cluster.
If both are not working, the problem may be the speed sensor in the transmission.

Speedometer and Odometer not working


you will have to check to see if the connection is a cable or electronic sensor. If it is a cable loosen the end by the transmission and check to see if it is broken or if the end is stripped if so replace the cable. If it is a sensor you might have to change the speed sensor. good luck

You might want to consider replacement of the vehicle speed sensor it is located in the transmission usually the end of speedometer cable plugs into it or it could be a separate unit.

The odometer quits working when the speedometer quits working. The most common cause for the speedometer to quit working is the speed sensor in the transmission. You said you replaced it, there is also a transmission speed sensor on your truck that may need to be replaced. I understand your frustration, but there is nothing else that would cause the speedometer to quit except the cable behind the gauges being clogged.

take your cable and gauge hook the cable up to your electric drill run the drill at high speed and, see if the gauge and speeddometer works if it does then your problem is either the gear in the dash unit or the gear in the transmission
