How to fix a speedometer cable

Well you know it does not have a speedo cable since you replaced the speed sensor in the transmission.
My guess would be a problem with the speedo or cluster.

I have a 1997 harley sportster 1200S XL and the speedometer doesn't work. It illuminates, but when I drive it it doesn't seem to move. I just got the bike at an auction so I am actually un-aware of it's...

It depends on which speedo you have, the electronic or the mechanical one. The lights in the speedo are simple illumination lights that are connected to the headlight. They have nothing to so with the operation of the speedo itself.

On the mechanical speedo, it is driven by a speedo drive unit on the front wheel with a cable running from the drive unit up to the backside of the speed. Look on the backside of the speedo and disconnect the cable. Raise the front wheel off the ground or tie the cable to the handlebars temporarily and ride the bike. The cable should turn. Use your fingers to put a little resistance on the cable, pinch it between your fingers and see if it slips and stops turning. If it does, you cable and possibly the drive unit is bad. If it continues to turn even against the resistance, likely you speedo is bad and must be replaced.

If your speed it an electronic unit, there is a sensor on the engine case back near the transmission part of the engine. You can remove this sensor and wipe it off in the event it might have a piece of metal on it or something. If that doesn't fix the problem, it could be either the sensor or the speedo. I do not know of a test of the sensor. Wished I could help more.

Speedometer works but odometer &trip don't replaced cluster with one from junk yard no luck Whats not working

I believe you have a combo mechanical/electrical speedo set up. You probably need to replace the speed sensor on the trans if it is the one I am thinking of. Find where the speedo comes out of the trans, and if you have a cable with a plug on it, you need the sensor.

Speedometer is pegged full scale with engine off and on.

free wiring diagram will take some digging if at all posible but I can tell you that the vehicle"speed sensor" gives the computer "data" and the computer tells the motorized electric speedo to move. dead battery and bad connections freak the computer out and sometimes peg the gauges. then they stay there after the connections are fixed. this doesnt mean the speedo or any thing is ruined--just need to reset it. I think on cavalier you can hold the trip reset button in and turn the key on and it will go into a self test mode bringing things back to normal.I THINK thats how that one works--try it. if not there is a funtion in the chevy handheld computer to do it. Hope I helped. Thanks

Check and or replace your speed sensor if that does not work replace the instrument cluster - you can find one at almost any salvage yard.
