SOURCE: How can cracking the steering column make the

I'm not sure if I understand you correctly. Are you saying you removed or lowered the steering column? If you did that, and the speedometer/odometer stopped working, it's most likely because the speedometer cable either somehow got broken or it came unplugged from the back of the instrument cluster. Go under the dash, and see if you can reach the speedometer cable. If you can, make sure it fully plugged into the cluster. If it is fully installed, push the metal tab holding the cable in place, and remove the cable. Try turning the cable, does it turn freely? It should. Then try pulling the cable itself out of the sheath, if it pulls out easily, it's probably broken somewhere in the middle.

SOURCE: p0500 speed sensor code, odo and speedo not working

If one speed sensor goes out, it will make your speedo stop working. I believe the sensors are about 200 a piece. You'll have to take it to the dealership to find out which one is malfunctioning as there are 5 of them total (I'm pretty sure). They only charged me 30 to put it in as it is really easy and that way it is warrantied by them.
One other problem I had was with the electric brake controller on my truck went haywire and when I disconnected it, my speedo came back to life.
Hope this helps!

Try changing out your turn signal flasher.it might be under your dash by your fuse box.Some trucks have two one for turn signals one for 4 way flashers.By all means check the fuse first.

Why does speedometer/odometer work intermittently?


Pull your negative battery cable for 30 min see if it resets your sytem. Guages should jump up and drop back then work perfectly. Had to do this with my 2005 monte carlo

1992 toyota 4x4 pickup odometer working but speedometer not working


They both work off of the same cable, so I would say that you have a problem in the speedometer head itself and will need replacing or sent in for repair.

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.

SPEEDOMETER QUIT


You may need another speedometer. The speed sensor sends a signal to both the speedo and the odometer. So if the sensor fails, both meters would stop working.
The speedo gets power from the same circuit as the warning lights.

Speedometer jumping up and down and car will not pick up speed.


Based on your actions, it sounds like a wiring problem.
Could be a weak connection at the cluster, or the speed sensor.

Does it control odometer


If speed registers but mileage does not change then the problem is in the speedo itself.
