Check your battery connections. Loose grounds have caused the problem plenty of times. First the speedo jumps around a bit and lights dim, then you start backfiring a little. Next, you'll be dead on the side of the road wondering what's going on!

If it is not a loose ground at the battery, check all your other wire connections. Should fixya right up though.

Please I'm still waiting for any solution What My 1995 c280 Mercedes Benz can not raise or fire beyond 20 odometer at idle, please what could be the problem


every one is having trouble trying to understand what you are saying
cannot fire or raise ----does that mean cannot accelerate the engine
beyond 20 odometer does that mean faster than 20 mph(klm ph)
or does it simply mean that it will not rev higher than 2000 rpm on the tachometer
a odometer reads speed and a tacho reads engine rpms
so you can see why no one is answering your question
it is confusing as to what you are saying

My speedometer is not reading my speed! My accelaration and the power to go is completely there. If I'm on the freeway or parked, gauge says that I'm still going 25 mph. The gauge does move, but is FAR...


If the odometer is correct, the problem is in the speedometer head. If the odometer is also not accurate, it may be the speed sensor in the transmission.

Engine check light is on and odometer stop running


Vehicle speed sensor. This runs the odometer/speedometer. Top of tranny, a cable runs all the way to the back of the odometer.

While driving all the dash lights (airbag,seatbelt,every warning light flashed) and the speed odometer and tach jumps back and forth for a second and everything went back to normal. The truck never missed...


I am not positive about my answer but I figured I would give my feedback anyways. It is possible that your alternator might be going out. In my experience, I had a '95 Maxima where, as I was driving, the battery and brake light would come on for a second and then it would turn off. A couple of days later, I needed a jump start. After driving down the road and after the car shuts off on me again (even after the jump), I realized that I needed a new alternator. Sure enough, the alternator solved the problem.
