Changing the speedometer cable

Mine broke soon after I reached 3000 Km with it. can you please provide some directions in changing it? I suppose it's simple enough to do it myself in 30 min, I would be loosing more than that going to a mechanic.
many thanks!

    It's the cable that goes to the front wheel, responsible for displaying the speed and incrementing the number of total Km (ODO). Right now it's not showing the speed while I'm running it. Have any ideea about this one? (sorry if I was missleading)

Assuming it's the same as my Kymco Agility, it's really easy cheapest is to buy a new one on ebay, it connects under the right handlebar to the throttle, there's a clip under the handle clip it in rescrew on the throttle handlebar and feed it through to the carb, just feed it through where the old one went and connect it to the top of the carb and that's it.

    ok sorry the speedo cable screws in to the back of the speedo insert pin then tighten screw by hand then it goes down to the front tire if you look at this link you can buy the part you need the inner and outer it's like $23.00 for both but look at the bottom where it goes into the front wheel, it looks like a little threaded gear , if so make sure the place the gear sits in on your bike isn't stripped if not this should work fine for you.

Speedometer on 1997 Yamaha Majesty not working,


Ken Budd's answer is incorrect: There is only a potential engine problem when the oil light comes on permanently.

The speedo/mileometer on thge Majesty normally sends pulses to a counter that switches on the oil-change warning light at 3,000 km. If the speedo/mileometer ceases to function the oil-change warning light blinks steadily simply to let you know the pulses aren't getting sent to the counter.
The most likely problem is a broken speedo cable; a new one costs £5.72 from AJSutton and you can easily fit it yourself: Take off the windscreen then reach through the gap above the headlamp to unscrew the outer cable beneath the speedo.

I've got the same problem as you right at the moment with my 1996 Majesty but in my case its the gear unit on the front axle (to which the speedo cable connects) that has stopped working: I'm currently on the look out for a new gear unit. Does anybody have one ?

Ihave a 91 300zx and my speedometer doesn't work.


The most likely problem is the speedometer cable is broken, probably near the transmission. if it's the cable, probably under $10. Disconnect the housing at the transmission, and the cable is inside. Pull the cable out, it should be square at both ends. a broken cable is obvious. insert a good cable (with some appropriate cable lube) into the flexable cable housing, you might have to turn the cable a bit to get the end back in the speedometer. If it is broke , you will also have to disconnect the housing at the speedometer to get the other end out. You might be able to reach it from under the dash, but you might have to loosen the instrument cluster to reach it.

Buick Regal problem-help!!!!!!!!


Have you done the basic maintenance. Spark plugs, oil change, ect.? As for the fans, if you have a/c one of them should only come on when your a/c is on. The other is regulated by a relay so when your car reaches a certain temp it kicks on.

Speedometer not working properly 2003 v-max


Easily checked. Get a friend to drive at an indicated speed in a car or another bike. Good reference point. If the speedo is driven by a cable remove at both ends and inspect for frayed wires on the inner cable. Just slide it out of the outer housing.

How often do I change the oil in my new Lincoln MKX ...every 2000 km or every 5000 km?


The owner's manual calls for changing oil and filter every 7500 miles in normal service, or if driving in dusty conditions, offroad, or lots of low speed and idling (a taxi or maybe an unlucky commuter), go to the extreme service intervals of 5000 miles. Changing oil every 3000 miles is definitely NOT required.

Speedometer Needle for Hyundai 2004 Accent


If your transmission fluid level is okay, then you need a new speedometer cable. Its not terribly difficult to replace, but it does require you to pull the instrument cluster. A local Hyundai dealership might be willing to photocopy the specific speedometer cable replacement instructions out of the 2004 Accent shop manual.

Speedometer Stops


Most cars Speedometer cable connect to one of the front wheels, but you said your speedometer sometimes stop then your steering wheel will go stiff, I think you should fix or change your speedometer cable, maybe the cable broken inside. Fix it as soon as possible for your safety.

Speedometer cable has two parts, one is outside cable, mounted and connect to both speedometer and wheel.

The other one is an inside steel cable, outside cable protects the inside cable, because the inside cable turns as soon as you move the car. It is directly connect to the wheel gears and the speedometer inside.

If your car has speedometer cable, I think you need check it right away.

Your steering wheel sometimes stiff, you also need to check your power steering fluid level, sometimes cause this kind problem.

Hope this can help you and if you have more questions, please use whatever the Fixya allowed, contact me to discuss this matter and others. Thank you.
