The next thing would be to test the output of the speed sensor, if there is not a signal from sensor then you could have a problem in transmission or more likely with the speedometer itself. There will be a code set in the Computer for an inoperative speed sensor or signal from the speed sensor. You can go to Autozone to get the computer checked with a code reader for free. If code P0500 is set then diagnose this code first.

On my Mitsubishi galant i took out the cluster panel light to change a bulb i put everything back and now the speedometer not working i went to shop to scaner because the check engine light is on result...


1 st thing I would do is hook up a scanner, bring up the data & find the vehicle speed on the sensor, then drive the vehicle, if the scanner registers the speed, then that tells you the speed sensor is working. if not your speed sensor is N/G.
If you do have a speed reading on your scanner, I would check all the fuses, you may have blown one when working on the cluster, especially if you didn't disconnect the negative battery, before you started. other than that, you may have disconnected a connector while you had it out. Hope this helps

Have replaced speed sensor and speedometer, but speedometer still does not work. Do you have any suggestions on what to try next?


There are usually TWO speed sensors on modern day vehicles, INPUT and OUTPUT. You may have changed one of these , but you may need to change the other. Ask your parts supplier, they will help you with the other. GOOD LUCK FRIEND.

What would cause it to work one day and not the next(cruise control) and where is the speed sensor located


I don't have any advice on the cruise control, it would have to be checked out.
The same speed sensor on the transmission handles the cruise control and the speedometer. If it fails, the speedo would quit working and the check engine light would come on.

My speedometer not working? is it cause of the after-market radio i put in be the reason.. mitsubishi galant 2002 6 cylinder


So we can rule out the speed sensor and its circuit to the PCM.

I just checked through another area of my database and it seems the speed sensor is systated as on the side of transaxle, near firewall, maybe you can dheck that out to confirm, just out of curiosity and for future reference and some portion of testing requires unplugging the conections.

Anyway I will provide a complete diagnostic pocedures for you to check through and hope an answer is found.

PS. After going through the diagnostic procedure, I believe your radio is the cause of the problem. Refer to # 10

SPEEDOMETER DOES NOT WORK

1. Connect scan tool to data link connector, check for Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC). If DTC P0500 (Vehicle Speed Sensor) is set, diagnose this DTC first. Go to step 6 . If DTC P0500 is not set, go to next step.

2. On Eclipse, if trip odometer is not working normally, go to next step. If trip odometer is working normally go to step 5. On Galant, if tachometer is not working normally, go to next step. If tachometer is working normally, go to step 5

3. Disconnect instrument cluster connector. Turn ignition switch to ON position. Connect DVOM between ground and instrument cluster connector terminal No. 52 (Black/White wire) on Eclipse or terminal No.29 (Black/White wire) on Galant. If battery voltage is present, go to next step. If battery voltage is not present, check harness connectors and harness wiring between instrument cluster and ignition switch for damage. Repair as necessary.

4. Using a DVOM, check resistance between ground and instrument cluster harness connector terminal No. 34 (Black wire) on Eclipse or terminal No. 30 (Black wire) on Galant. If resistance is less than 2 ohms, replace instrument cluster printed circuit board or speedometer and tachometer. If resistance is greater than 2 ohms, check instrument cluster connector and harness wiring. Repair as necessary. If connector and wiring are okay, go to next step.

5. Disconnect vehicle speed sensor connector and instrument cluster connector. Turn ignition switch to ON position. Connect DVOM between ground and harness side of instrument cluster connector terminal No. 29 (White/Blue wire) on Eclipse or terminal No. 16 (Yellow/Black wire) on Galant. Voltage should be 5 volts. If voltage is okay, repair or replace instrument cluster printed circuit board or speedometer and tachometer. If voltage is not 5 volts, check instrument cluster connector and harness wiring. Repair as necessary. If connector and wiring are okay, go to next step.

6. Disconnect vehicle speed sensor harness connector and connect DVOM to harness side. Check vehicle speed sensor power supply voltage between terminal No. 1 (Black/White wire) on Eclipse or (Black/Blue wire) on Galant and ground. Battery voltage should be present. If voltage is okay, go to next step. If voltage is not present, check vehicle speed sensor harness connector and wiring. Repair as necessary.

7. Using DVOM, check resistance between ground and vehicle speed sensor harness connector terminal No. 2 (Black wire). Resistance should be less than 2 ohms. If resistance is greater than 2 ohms, check instrument cluster connector and harness wiring. Repair as necessary. If connector and wiring are okay, go to next step.

8. Disconnect vehicle speed sensor harness connector. Connect DVOM between ground and harness side terminal No. 3 (White/Blue wire) on Eclipse or (Yellow/Black wire) on Galant. If 9 volts are not present, check vehicle speed sensor harness connector and wiring. Repair as necessary. If 9 volts are present, go to next step.

9. Check harness wiring between vehicle speed sensor connector to radio and tape player connector, auto-cruise control ECU ECM (M/T) or PCM (A/T) connector and instrument cluster connector. If connectors or wiring are damaged, repair as necessary. If connectors and wiring are okay, go to next step.

CAUTION: To prevent damage to scan tool, always turn ignition off before connecting or disconnecting scan tool.

NOTE: If ECM (M/T) or PCM (A/T) is replaced, immobilizer-ECU should also be replaced. Each ECM (M/T) or PCM (A/T) has an encrypted code for immobilizer-ECU, and is registered in immobilizer-ECU.

10. Connect scan tool to data link connector. Turn ignition switch to ON position. Read DTC. Disconnect radio and tape player connector. If DTC P0500 does not reset, replace radio and tape player. If speedometer does not work, disconnect auto-cruise control ECU connector. If DTC P0500 does not reset, replace auto-cruise control ECU. If speedometer does not work, disconnect instrument cluster harness connector. If DTC P0500 does not reset, replace instrument cluster. If DTC P0500 resets when any connector is disconnected, replace ECM (M/T) or PCM (A/T).

Changing a speed sensor on a 1998 mitsubishi galant


HI there:
On 1998 Mitsubishi Galant 2.4L MFI SOHC 4cyl the Vehicle Speed Sensor is located mounted on transmission, near the shift linkage.

You will need unplug the sensor by pulling the tangs on either side of the plug away from the connector, then pull the connector off the plug, unbolt the speed sensor, and finally install the new sensor and tighten the bolt firmly.

End this job plug in the sensor, ensuring that the connector snaps into place.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

My speedometer just stop working. Wheres the Fuse so i can change it? plz help


I don't think the Speedometer has a fuse and when its not working ( Speedometer) That means your VSS ( vehicle Speed Sensor) went bad and probably need to be changed. Good luck

Speedometer wont work


Most cars have one main vehicle speed sensor (vss). The VSS in front wheel drive cars is mounted in the transmission. A gear in the tranny turns a small gear on the VSS. If a tooth of the gear on the VSS is damaged, you can get that erratic speedometer jumping like you're experiencing. A malfunctioning VSS can cause problems with shifting and with the activation of the anti-lock braking system and cruise control. Have a Transmission shop inspect your VSS and replace if necessary, if your handy with tools. you can buy the VSS and replace you self. The speed sensors on the Galant are called pulse generators and need to be replace as a set. Located outside of the transmission right on top.
Good luck!
