If you have changed tire sizes this will effect your speedometer. This can be fixed with recalibrating your speed sensor.

2001 Buick Century Limited speedometer problem, Speedometer not working but odomitor ok. Is there a fuse?


if the odometer is working then the problem is with the speedometer head unit as the odometer gets its information from the same source as the speedometer. you can have the speedometer head checked and fixed if its fixable.

Speed sensor


Speedometer sensor measures axle(driveshaft) speed for your speedometer gauge.
Input speed sensor measures the speed of the input shaft of the transmission.
The output speed sensor measures the output shaft, the ECM compares these two signals to determine the amount of clutch slippage and adjusts parameters accordingly for optimal operation.

Transmission speed sensor


You could have a faulty speedometer/odometer combination meter causing a false Vehicle Speed Sensor error.
My 1998 Sienna had the following symptoms:
- Speedometer and odometer failed intermittently
- The check engine light would come on and I would get a p0500 code in the OBDII.
- The cruise control would stop working at the same time the speedometer failed.
There is a speed sensor in each one of the tires and they feed the speed information to the ABS ECU. From the ABS ECU the speed signal goes to the speedometer/odometer combination meter, and from there it goes to the Engine Control Module and to the Cruise Control ECU. I could see a signal coming into the speedometer/odometer, but no signal going out. Replacing the speedometer/odometer combination meter fixed the problem.

My speedometer goes up and down , and my radio goes on and off


The speedometer can fluctuate rapidly under normal driving conditions when the car's speed changes abruptly, but sometimes the needle can start swinging around the dial without any fluctuation in speed. If the hairspring comes loose or breaks, it can't hold the speed cup in place, and the result is a fluctuation in the dial. In electrical speedometers, if the circuit that counts the magnetic pulses fails, it can cause the speedometer read-out to vary from the actual speed and to shoot upward or downward without notice. If a speed sensor in the automatic transmission starts to malfunction, it can affect the speedometer and cause fluctuations. In these instances, either the speedometer or the sensor needs replacement.

Nissan Maxima speedometer reads 20 mph but actual speed is 40-50 mph, is my transmission going bad?


NO, IT'S NOT THE TRANSMISSION! SOUNDS LIKE A SPEEDOMETER PROBLEM! THAT WOULD BE ONE OF THREE THINGS! EITHER THE SPEEDOMETER, THE CABLE, OR THE SPEED SENSOR! THE SPEED SENSOR WILL USUALLY GIVE YOU A P0500 CODE ON AN OBD-II CODE READER! THE SPEED SENSOR IS ELECTRONIC SPEED CONTROL LOCATED ON THE TRANSMISSION! SOME HAVE A SPEEDOMETER CABLE HOOKED TO THEM, AND SOME JUST HAVE A 2 WIRE PLUG THAT HOOKS TO IT!

Replacing speedometer cable


I do not believe there is a speedometer cable in a 1992 Olds. I think that you have a speed sensor that transmits to the speedometer via two wires. The speed sensor is mounted near the drive shaft where two magnets transmit rotation speed to the sensor.

Where is speed senor on a Hyundai Sonatas


Hyundai VSS locations:
On 1999-2003 vehicles, the vehicle speed sensor is built into the speedometer. On 2004-2005 vehicles, the vehicle speed sensor is attached to the output shaft of the transaxle.

On 1996-2003 vehicles, the vehicle speed sensor is built into the speedometer. On 2004-2005 vehicles, the vehicle speed sensor is attached to the output shaft of the transaxle.

Hope helps (remember rated this).

Speedometer stop working where's the cable?


Your vehicle does not have a traditional speedometer cable. Instead it uses a VSS (Vehicle Speed Sensor) to read speed of the vehicle below is a short test to help you determine if it is the VSS that has failed.

SPEEDOMETER VEHICLE SPEED SENSOR TEST

1. Press and release trip odometer button until function number 6 appears in display window.

2. Turn a front wheel and observe display (pulses are added to number in display. Check impulse signal for speedometer vehicle speed sensor. If 7 pulses are generated per wheel revolution, vehicle speed sensor is okay.

3. If specified number of pulses are not generated, check for open in wiring harness between speed sensor and instrument cluster. Repair wiring harness if necessary. If wiring harness is okay, replace speedometer vehicle speed sensor.
