You will need to check all supply voltages to the speedometer. It needs 12 volts supply and a good earth. Flashing electronics usually means a supply voltage problem or ground fault. If you do not have a volt meter or do not know how to use one, then I would suggest that you bring it to a competent dealer or local repair shop. Many electrical faults are blown out of all proportion due to poor fault finding practice and end up with huge bills. This fault should be found in less than half an hour with a voltmeter. By the way, it could be the speedometer itself.

Take it back to the guy who changed the brakes it sounds as they are dragging or to tight and dragging the vehicle down. May not be fix but I would start there or maybe the emergency brake is set.

I was drive the car running and shifting goog, then the speedometer went dead and transmission started sliping bad. Then the speedometer started working and it quit slipping for about a quarter mile t


Your speed sensor is giving out I believe. The transmission is fine, I'm very sure of it. So in short: It's electrical!

FYI: When the speed sensor signal is not reaching the computer, it doesn't know if/when to shift gears, or what gear to even be in. That's my basic summary of why this happens. There could be more to it than I know considering it's a newer car... but I think I'm right about it being a speed sensor.

I changed the vss and the 4wabs sensers and the wires are good but my speedometer is still jumpy and my abs does not work on my 95 ford bronco but i dont have any codes that i am aware of is it possiable a...


on my 94 i didnt have codes either,but the electric motor failed on the abs due to moisture.the speedometer on mine jumps too,but mine with 220,000 miles it was the gauge cluster,couldnt tell if i was driving 5 miles per hour too slow or too fast.the cruise may be the clock spring behind the steering wheel,but most of the time the horn wouldnt work or the air bag light would be on and beeping

Speedometer quit working. 80,000 miles needle


Your speedometer is fully electric and the sensor at the transmission side is not sending pulse to the computer ECU.

The part is call Vehicle Speed Sensor (VSS).

There are two versions.

16 bolts and 17 bolts transmission pan version.


Count the number of bolts on your transmission pan before you head for the part store.


Please rate my answer if it's useful to you.
