Why is the speedo meter not working after putting in wheel bearings and brake pads?


The speedometer cable may have become disconnected. Check a repair manual for your car that shows how the speedometer works and where and how it is connected/powered. A wire may have been cut or pinched.

Speedometer cut off then back on later


Check the magnetic end of the speedo sensor. This is the part that goes into the transmission. If the end is covered with metal filings, clean them off and reinstall the sensor. Ride the bike and check to see if this solves your problem.

My speedometer keeps jumpin to zero then it will come back to normal then it will do it again and sometimes stay on zero for a long time until service engine light comes on


The mechanic should check the speedometer because of it is malfunctioning .And also the speedometer cable . If the speedometer is worn out or destroyed then replace it but if malfunctioning and can be repaired then repair it.The speedometer cable if it is disconnected then reconnect it but if cut or destroyed replace it.The service engine light will light on because of there is a problem in the service part of the engine.

Speedometer not working


Does it hang out at 18-20MPH, regardless of your speed?
Mine did the same thing. The problem was an open circuit inside the gauge itself, and there's no repair for the parts. You'll need to get a replacement speedometer gauge, or simply buy a replacement instrument cluster.


If it's not doing the "20mph" thing, then it's possible that you just need a new engine speed sensor. This is located on the rear of the engine block, and is hard but not impossible to reach and replace.

One way to test is to set the car on cruise control when the speedometer is working. If the speedometer cuts out ,but the cruise is still able to maintain your speed, then the sensor is OK and the problem is the gauge. If the cruise control also cuts out, then the sensor is bad.

1996 HONDA THE SPEEDOMETER CUTS ON/OFF IT DOSE NOT HAVE A REGULAR


The 1996 Honda Civic does not have a traditional manual Speedometer cable that would require tightening. The speedometer is electronically controlled by a speed sensor located on the transmission. There is a wire that goes from that sensor to the speedometer in the instrument cluster. Either you have a short in the wire or you may have a bad connector either on the back of the cluster or at the transmission. Scanning your car woudl let you know what is happening, especially if you get a P0501 - which is for the speed sensor.
