Speedometer not working

While driving the speedometer begin to move rapidly then it just stopped registering the rate of speed. What would cause that to happen and what is the fix for it? Could possibly a cable shake loose or is there censor that may be bad?

Alot of the time is vibrates and unscrews from the back of the speedometer. If it is screwed in on both sides, unscrew them both and turn the cable with your fingers to make sure it isn't broke.

Where is the speedometer sensor


I have seen several neons with this issue. The instruments will stop working on ocassion or all together. I have found that the instrument cluster or wiring connector to the cluster can become slightly loose causing the speedometer to stop working. I would recommend putting slight inward pressure on the cluster when this happens to see if it has any effect. If the speedometer starts working I would advise turning your attention to the plug on the back side of the cluster to remove the slight movement that the plug mount allows.

My speedometer goes up and down , and my radio goes on and off


The speedometer can fluctuate rapidly under normal driving conditions when the car's speed changes abruptly, but sometimes the needle can start swinging around the dial without any fluctuation in speed. If the hairspring comes loose or breaks, it can't hold the speed cup in place, and the result is a fluctuation in the dial. In electrical speedometers, if the circuit that counts the magnetic pulses fails, it can cause the speedometer read-out to vary from the actual speed and to shoot upward or downward without notice. If a speed sensor in the automatic transmission starts to malfunction, it can affect the speedometer and cause fluctuations. In these instances, either the speedometer or the sensor needs replacement.

My speedometer wont work but everything elsle is fine


If your car isn't moving, the speedometer wont work. Make sure you are moving.

Seriously, a little more info would be nice.....but to start with, the speedometer cable is connected to the back of the speedometer and to the transmission. Have you removed the ends to see if there is any damage? You should be able to spin the cable end on the transmission and get the speedometer to register a speed.

Speedo starts off fine for a couple of miles and then moves round the clock to max speed slowly. Next time out same beginning but it sticks at 65! Any idea? Chris


Thsi is likely a problem inside the speedometer guage internally with the driven gears. They use drive motors to drive the needles inside. If it is pretty continuous then the speedometer is in trouble and will require a speedometer specialist to rebuild the unit or replacement of the unit.

Speedometer - 40MPH


the speedo is electronic, not cable, this problem is caused by a sticking stepper motor that moves the needle, a stepper motor is a miniature electric motor that can move and hold one position, this was a common problem at the dealer I worked at, u will need to pull the speedo and send it out for repair, I use the following link for this service.

This all can be caused by a defective Vehicle Speed sensor, also called a VSS, also run a test on the computer to see if any codes are in memory that will help to sort this problem out.
