How to repair speedometer 95 sidekick

hey and oldie but goodie.
why not post the full symptoms. ????

Speedo dead, makes noise, bounces? what? stuck high? what?
odometer dead.
CEL glows running, the check engine light glows, running
and you insert the 1cent paper clip in the DLC connector and you get
code flashing. code 24, VSS dead?

if yes, the cable has snapped. (fell off at either end)
if not VSS dead, then the speedo is dead
if both odometer and speed are dead and VSS are dead the
snapped cable, or cable fell off rear of speedo head.
if VSS is not bad. (no 24s)
and only speedo is dead but , odometer is good
then that means the actual speedo clock inside the head is bad.

to repair a dead speed/cluster, you replace the whole head
if real frisky then you do this.
suzuki even sells new clocks, but are very expensive
what i do is find a used head. and use that. ( or at fleabay.
sometimes i mix 3 heads to get one, good head.
that is all you can do, on old cars unless rich, and $200 head is pocket change.

tell more get more, ask.

The speedometer just reads zero even when travelling what can be the solution for this problem

If the speedo and odometer do not work, it could be the speed sensor in the transmission.

I have a 2004 Honda vtx 1300c and the speedometer quit working. I checked the battery connections and the fuse and they are fine. All the other lights and the odometer on the dash work. The speedometer...

its the speed sensor The Speedo sensor has a little plastic coupler that is driven off the hex head of the bolt that holds your countershaft sprocket on. If the countershaft sprocket bolt has backed off,it could've damaged that coupler. Or the plastic coupler has simply stripped out from working against that steel bolt head. Unbolt the Speedo sensor(it's just two little bolts)and remove it,see if the hex shape of the coupler is rounded out,or if the hex shape of the sprocket bolt is rounded. Either of these could give you erratic readings. If the bolts that hold the countershaft sprocket cover are loose,or the bolts that secure the Speedo sensor are loose,these too could cause an erratic Speedometer reading.

My odometer isn't working, but everything else in dashboard console is!

The odometer is driven by a small plastic gear and with all forms of plastic, it suffers from thermal stress (the interior of the vehicle heats up and cools down constantly) and mechanical stress from normal use. The chances are that this small drive gear (king gear or first motion gear) has worn to the point that it can no longer drive the odometer.
Have the speedo head unit repaired by a qualified specialist and all will be well.
I would not advise that you attempt this repair yourself as the dissassembly and re-assembly of a modern speedo head unit can (and most likely will) alter the calibration of the speed reading, even in a electronic speedo head, damage can happen with no outside signs that a compnent has been damaged.

I have a 51 Focus. My speedo has developed a habit of occasionally reading no speed or sometimes too fast and generally being erratic. Sometimes this is accompanied by the odometer going blank but not...

Your problems sound like they are electrical, i would suggest you take it to an electrician and have them identify the problem, it most likely is not the speedometer as all that does is just output the speed, the speed sensor might be one thing you can look at.

Create an equation to calculate a change in gear size on a jeep.

If the gears have been INCREASED the speed etc will be less.
Say it's increased by 18%.In theory,at 100mph real speed, the speedo will read 18%less.i.e. 82mph.
If the speedo is driven off the g/box,all this has to be taken into account.
If the speedo is driven off the wheels(and the wheels have not changed at all)All that will happen is the engine revs will have decreased by 18%.
So,To work out the difference.Divide the distance travelled by 100 and then multiply the answer by 82.(82 is the remaining % of the original)
So if 150 miles is divided by 100=1.5
1.5 is multiplied by 82=123 miles.
Hope this helps

96 xl883 speedo problem

Several possibilities. Your speed sensor may have picked up some metal from the trans. Remove it and wipe off the chips. Bad speedometer or intermittent bad connection or broken wire to the speedo.

2001 ford Expedition odometer reads 100mph

I used to calibrate police speedometers, The odometer by the way is the device that records how much distace you have travelled, The little numbers on the bottom of your speedo. If your speedo reads 100mph regardless of how fast you are travelling, The answer is simple you have some dirt jammed in your speedo. Check that your speedo is mechanical ie it has an armoured square ended cable that comes from the engine to the back of your speedo. Get your hand round the back of the dash and find the back of the speedo. See if you can feel an armoured cable going into the speedo, if so it will usually unscrew and let you pull the square drive inner out. This task is easier if you can first get the speedo out. It will have to come out. Then take the speedo apart without removing the pointer. A cup spins round a magnet and the pivots on the magnet sometimes get glued up. Clean with fine paint brush and parrafin. DO NOT TOUCH THE HAIRSPRING. Get diagram of dragcup speedo as it will show you all the parts. Hope this helps
