The sv runs the speedo from a front wheel speed drive and sometimes the tabs that turn the drive can bend or brake off giving a false reading so i would remove the front wheel and check that the two tabs are in good order and that the wheel drive is aswell.

My 05 Focus speedometer is wacky. All other gauges and systems work fine. The speedometer needle doesn't go to zero when vehicle stops moving.


Sounds like the speedometer is faulty. If the speed sensor were the problem, the odometer would not work correctly, the transmission would not shift correctly, and the check engine light would be on.

The speedometer in my 2002 Chevy 2500HD pickup varies in by +/- 5mph while traveling on flat smooth pavement. I have found that if the truck is using throttle it will read +5 and if it is more coasting,...


Hello
This problem is caused by a defective instrument cluster and it must be send out for updated parts and repair of defects in the design. Although the instrument cluster in this truck uses what looks like analog instruments it is actually digitally controlled by a small computer inside the cluster assembly, this same computer it seems sends the signal to the cruise control as well, so if the speedometer needle is getting a faulty signal then the cruise will act up as well. There are many places on the Internet that can do this repair, you are not stuck with the dealer who will 2X the cost of the repair of the cluster to you (capitalization in all it glory). These companies will send a special box to ship the cluster in and provide full instructions on removal.
Below is one such link to a cluster repair service, give them a call about your particular problem.

Nissan Maxima speedometer reads 20 mph but actual speed is 40-50 mph, is my transmission going bad?


NO, IT'S NOT THE TRANSMISSION! SOUNDS LIKE A SPEEDOMETER PROBLEM! THAT WOULD BE ONE OF THREE THINGS! EITHER THE SPEEDOMETER, THE CABLE, OR THE SPEED SENSOR! THE SPEED SENSOR WILL USUALLY GIVE YOU A P0500 CODE ON AN OBD-II CODE READER! THE SPEED SENSOR IS ELECTRONIC SPEED CONTROL LOCATED ON THE TRANSMISSION! SOME HAVE A SPEEDOMETER CABLE HOOKED TO THEM, AND SOME JUST HAVE A 2 WIRE PLUG THAT HOOKS TO IT!

When car warms up the speedometer goes up and down and transmission shifts funny and the engine cuts off


If the speedometer suddenly drops back and then returns to being close to your actual speed and the transmission shift or acts up at the same time this is happening then you may have a failing Vehicle Speed Sensor, usually refered to as a VSS. This sensor tells the engine computer, instrument cluster, and transmission controller how fast you are going so the controller can select the proper gear for the transmission to be in. If the speed signal is lost, wrong, or erratic then the transmission may make a quick downshift to to try and match this new, but incorrect, speed and then may make an equally quick upshift to rematch the correct speed once the signal is correct again. This should be an easy one for anyone with a good scan tool to check out as the actual speed reading signal can be observed during a test drive and it's usually pretty easy to spot the glitches. Good luck, hope this helps!

Having a problem with the speedometer on 2001 SV650


You need to replace the speedometer cable. The years of turning inside the protective cable have worn it out. Disconnect both ends and the piece(s) supporting the cable and replace it. Simple and relatively quick too. Happy Riding.

Most likely you have a bad sensor indicating a speed that is incorrect. Unfortunately you probably need to have it fixed at a shop or learn to know your exact speed from the tach and gear you are in.
