Repair speedometer of 1996 Geo Metro

The speedometer has recently failed. I'm not sure if the 1996 Metro has a cable leading to the instrument cluster or a sensor.

Where should I be looking? If not a cable where is the sensor,and wiring located??

I don't have a repair manual at this time. I would appreciate any information.
Is the speedometer an actual cable or is there an electrical sensor that may have failed?

Again any assistance would be appreciated.

I believe this is a cable system, but either way the the cable or electronic sensor will go from the speedo to the tranny. At the tranny, the sensor or the cable will be either on the driver side towards the middle, or on the very top towards the front.

You need to remove the instrument panel, usually on many small car speedometer has a separate cable, so that you can replace single instrument.

    Yes you can replace single instrument, here is the procedure:
    " here is the procedure to replace the instrument cluster, from the
    service manual for your car. Once the cluster is out of the car,
    replacing the speedometer head alone is usually just a matter of
    removing whatever screws hold it to the instrument cluster.


    1. Disconnect battery ground cable.

    2. Remove four screws attaching cluster switch panel to instrument panel.

    3. Disconnect electrical connectors from switches, then pull
      instrument cluster bezel and switch panel slightly outward as an
      assembly.

    4. Remove six screws attaching cluster bezel to switch panel.

    5. Remove front windshield wiper switch and headlamp and hazard warning lamp switch from switch panel.

    6. Remove four instrument cluster housing attaching screws from switch housing.

    7. Disconnect instrument cluster electrical connectors and speedometer cable.

    8. Remove instrument cluster, Fig. 9.

    9. Reverse procedure to install.

I believe it will since the model of car is not greatly changed over 4 years and the 95 was the first in the revamped Geo series. They mostly just change the body style not the engine parts.

All my gauges work except my speedometer. What is going on?


Check your speedometer cable at both ends and make sure it is on tight. If the speeometer cable is the original cable it might be time to replace it with a new one. The cable will wear out over time and cause your speedometer to stop working when you drive your car. A replacement cable will cost around $15. If your speedometer cable is good and in working order then you will have to have your instrument cluster repaired. Take a trip to your local junk yard and find your vehicle and then remove that instrument cluster and replace your broken unit. This is cheaper then having your original instrument cluster rebuilt at a shop. If your instrument cluster is digital, check the fuse box located underneath the drivers side steering wheel and locate the "instrument cluster" or "speedometer" fuse. Pull it out and replace it with the same number fuse. To remove your instrument cluster, remove the four phillips screws holding your plastic bezel that surrounds the cluster and then remove the four phillips screws that hold the instrument cluster in place. Now pull it away from the dash and disconnect the electrical plugs. This is very easy to do at home using a phillips screwdriver. If you have any more question, feel free to contact me.

I think my speedometer cable is disconnected somewhere uderneath my car, because my speedometer is not working at all. where is the speedometer cable located underneath my car?


If your's has one it hooks in the side of the transmission. Most newer cars are electronic. There is a small motor that drives the speedo. After you get the instrument cluster out it is easy to change. Make sure you can buy the motor before you take the cluster out.

Speedometer just stopped workin its like 180 is actually o km/h and then it wont go down past 180


Hi. There is a speed sensor mounted on the transmission. Check the wires that lead from the sensor to the instrument cluster in your dash. Make sure the speedometer is connected to the sensor, and the connection is not loose. If the wiring at the sensor, and speedometer are ok, simply replace the speed sensor.
