I was driving my 2009 yamaha vstar 650 classic yesterday, and the speedometer stopped working. I stopped, I noticed the speedometer cable had come loose. I tightened back, but nothing! What do I do?

Check if the cable is not broken by twisting the inner cable anticlockwise and observe the speedo to see if it moves.
If ok, put it back on the wheel, making sure that the pin with flats is in the groove and tighten the nut. Good idea to pull the inner cable out and grease it with a light grease.
Good luck.

Dash board odometer/speedometer squeaking. How to remove dashboard? Cable loose or need grease?

Somewhat depends on the make/year. Older cars/trucks had a cable from the transmission to the speedo/odo. These can wear out and/or need grease, and can squeak. Newer cars/trucks replace the cable with electronics, and aren't likely to squeak...
If you have a cable, greasing can be messy. The one time I saw this done was on a '60s car, and the mechanic removed the cable from the back of the speedo, pulled the center almost all the way out of the outer covering, and applied white grease all along the center while pushing it back in. Never squeaked again.

Sticking speedometer

Lubricating the inner speedometer cable located on the tail-shaft of the transmission will most likely cure the erratic speedometer. Unscrew the flexible outer cable and remove the inner cable. Clean the removed inner cable. As you slowly insert it back into the outer cable apply a generous amount of general automotive grease to the cleaned inner cable.

01 deville at times engines speeds up speedometer jumps about 10 miles up and down

sounds like your speedometer cable needs a little grease...unscew it from tranny and pull it out being careful to not getting dirt on it...put some automotive grease on it very lightly except for the area about 8 inches from where it goes into dash...if you put grease any closer on the cable about 8 inches from where it goes into speedometer head, the grease could work itself into the speedometer head where you DON'T want it..remember, just a very light coating and work it into cable using your hands and rubbing the cable up and down...

I installed the front wheel after having a repair done, now the wheel does not turn freely. I checked the brake, it is clear. I applied axle grease to the inside on all moving parts. If I loosen the nut...

check that the speedometer gear is properly engaged with the hub. The speedometer receiver has two fingers on it that must fit correctly in the hub. Otherwise it binds up the wheel.

Speedometer inop intermittant

This may be a problem with the speedometer cable. From the back of the gauges there is a thick cable that goes to the transmission. Check if it is loose or there is wear. You may have to unhook it or apply grease to it or replace it. Otherwise it could be the gear inside the transmission which counts the rotation that is faulty or loose.

Gas guage temp and speedometer are out and odometer

On mine had to remove cluster panel, redid a bunch of solder joints in case but I think what cured it was taking out every wire from plugs, tightening each clip, applying di-electric grease and cleaning each connection before re plugging all connectors.

The gauges (speedometer, fuel, engine heat, etc.) on the dash cut on and off sometimes while driving.

Speedometer needle wildly fluctuates at all speeds, speedometer cable checks fine

take the cable out of its housing and grease it, take it all the way out and grease it as you put it back in, that should fix it. if not the speedometer head may be bad, but when they go bad usually its noisy behind the speedometer.

Noisy speedometer

The click you are hearing might be a dry speedometer cable. Applying grease to the inner cable will most likely help this problem. The problem is getting to the cable behind the speedometer/dash panel. You can also get to the cable from under the truck. if you crawl under the truck and look at the smaller end of the transmission, you will see the cable screwed into the tail piece of the transmission. Remove the cable from the transmission and pull the inner cable out of the outer cable. The inner cable is what spins and causes the speedometer to turn. Take regular wheel bearing grease in the palm of your hand and slid the inner cable through the grease then put the inner cable back in the outer cable. When the inner cable gets to the back of the speedometer, you will have to slowly turn the cable and give a slight pressure inward to seat the inner cable into the speedometer.

Hope this helps.

Good Luck
