My 1995 Honda Civic ESI (Manual Transmission) speedometer doesn't work. I replaced the sensor unit to no avail. I checked all fuses and they are all okay. I also checked the voltages on the speedometer...


i see two possibilities. well the first one, when you changed the speedometer, did you just change a small part, or was a large part with a gear at the bottom. if you only changed a smal part, and not the gear under neath it, then it is a possibility that the gear that turns the speedometer is worn. the other possibility is the speedometer head which is located on the instrument cluster, but changing this does take several hours and theres no actual way of testing it without taking it out. if you know how to change the vss(the part that goes on top) then look for maybe one or two more bolts, remove, and try to wiggle the gear out. im sorry, its not the best description, but i am trying my best. if the gear is pointy on all of the ends, then it is good, and you will have to look into the speedometer head. if the ends are flat, replace that, and problem should be solved. hope this helps, goodluck.

The speedometer dows not work: however the cable is in perfect working order.


you say the cable is in working order do you mean the outer cable is in good shape or have you pulled the inner cable out to inspect for frayed,twisted,or broken cable,if the inner cable is in good shape and no defects then with the cable in place but not connected to the speedometer head drive the car a little to have someone check to make sure the cable is turning as the vehicle is moving .if not then you may have a bad/damaged speedometer drive gear in the transmission,this is located were the cable attaches to the transmission.remove cable then remove the gear drive assembly from the side of the transmission(be sure the gear comes out with it)inspect the the plastic gear for any damage,inspect the gear inside the transmission that the gear is driven off of,turn the drive shaft making sure the gear turns and there is no damage to the gear as you are turning the drive shaft.if this is all okay then i would say that the speedometer head has a problem and needs to be replaced.

My speedometer is not working is it a cable? a fuse? a relay? i need to fix 1985 buick lesabre 307 v8 4 barrel rocker


Yes it is the cable type. The instrument cluster must first be removed. Depress the retaining clip on the back of the cluster to release the speedometer cable. Once the end of the speedometer drive cable is exposed, grip the inner cable with pliers and draw it out of the housing. Installation is the reverse of removal, but lubricate the entire cable. Use special speedometer cable lubricant, Not oil, for this purpose. Insert the cable into the housing using a twisting movement until the lower end is felt to engage with the pinion gear at the transmission. You can also check the Pinion Gear at the transmission, That is where the speedometer cable connects to the transmission. Some times these small nylon gears will strip out caused from no lubrication in the speedometer cable housing. If the above does not solve your problem you may need to change out the cluster itself to obtain a good working speedometer head. Good Luck and Happy New Year. From Ernie @ RedDeer, Alberta, Canada.

How do u get speed sensor out of tranny


Removing Speedometer Drive Gear
  • Begin to remove the speedometer cable retainer and drive gear by cleaning off the top of the speedometer cable retainer.
  • Then remove the hold-down screw that keeps the retainer in its bore.
  • Carefully pull up on the speedometer cable, pulling the speedometer retainer and drive gear assembly from its bore.
  • Unscrew the speedometer cable from the retainer and carefully remove both the cable and the old O-ring seal.
Installing Speedometer Drive Gear
  • To reinstall the retainer, lightly grease the O-ring on the retainer and gently tap the retainer and gear assembly into its bore while lining the groove in the retainer with the screw hole in the side of the clutch housing case.
  • Install the hold-down screw and tighten it in place.

My speedometer bocunce off betwween 140 and beyond that at every speed. graphited head and cable .I have another speedometer but dont know how to remove needle on fox body ford


Check the gear in the trans.Also check the cable to gear in the trans.The gear is plastic and where the cable goes in the plastic cable,it can wear out the square hole.also the plastic gear on the inside(other end where the cable goes in the trans.)can wear down and slip as the gear on the trans turns.This gear is removable,and can be purchased at the dealer,not expensive.

WHERE DO I REFILL GEAR OIL FOR 1992 FESTIVA


Hello, I assume you mean the transmission gear oil. I have the original shop manual for the 1992 Festiva so I can answer any questions that it covers if you like. The gear oil is replaced through the speedometer cable insert, where it enters the top of the transmission. When you remove the speedometer cable, you will see two lines on the insert that screws into the hole and you fill the transmission up to the level of the top line when warm.

Speedometer is not working


I would suspect the speedometer cable is broken. It is not easily removed when it's broken.

You have to access the speedo head behind the instrument panel to remove the top piece, and remove the bottom piece by taking the cable housing loose at the transmission.

Then you can insert the new one from the bottom end -- it may take some finesse since both ends of the cable have a square cross-section which has to be inserted into the gear & head.
