Re: repair speedometer of 1996 Geo Metro
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.

the cable just disconnects at the trans, easy.
its the speedo side that tricky
96 has the side impact braces there, making tad more tricky.

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.
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.
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.
