Have you had the front wheel off recently?

There is a magnetic speedometer sensor at the front wheel that is easily and often broken if not aligned property. Replacing that magnetic sensor should cure it.

Also, there is a wiring harness under the speedometer. Remove the 3 bolts holding on the speedometer, and carefully lift it up and check to make sure the harness is plugged together tightly.

Speedometer not working


On a mechanical (cable driven) speedometer, the problem's the drive unit, the cable, or the speedo head itself.

You stated the cable is good, so let's eliminate that.

You can attach the inner and outer cable to the speedo head, chuck the bottom end of the inner cable in a drill motor, and spin it to see if the speedo head responds.

If not, new speedo needed.

It both the cable and speedo head are good, then it's the speedometer drive (I believe it's in the rear brake backing plate) is probably bad.

Remove it and inspect/replace.

Whilst riding my bike suddenly the speedo stopped working,i have attatched the cable to my drill and it registered on the speedo,so do u have any idea what it could be,my tdr is on a 07 plate.


Check the gear inside the front wheel, there is usually a small bolt holding it in place where the speedo cable goes into, you will find the gear may need replacing.

I would check the continuity of the wiring from the speedo to the sensor. There really is nothing else to go wrong. If the speedo "blips" as you switch the ignition on, it is probably OK.

While riding my 2006 low rider my speedo, tach and neutral switch suddenly stopped working...is this a fuse?


Hi James_leary, could be, but I would also check the wiring harness connector that plugs into the speedo and tach for corroded, broken or loose pins. Good luck.

Speedo has suddenly stopped working also the mileometer has also stopped? please help


If you can hear it while your driving its the speedo and not the cable. Replace speedometer or whole gauge cluster.( What ever is easyer) You can find one on ebay. It could also be the speedo sensor on the top back half on the engine. REAL EXPENSIVE! Even for a used one. About $150 bucks for the sensor. And about the same for the Cluster.

Suddenly today the speedo and mileage counter has stopped working


Hi, Carl331 for this situation I would call my local dealer or reputable shop's service/parts department and inquire about any possible quick fix/test or parts inquiry. If necessary transport your vehicle to the dealer or shop and have a professional technician take it for a test drive, if it is in running condition, and give you a written estimate of repairs and answer any specific questions you may have about your issue.

1989 Honda Accord speedometer not working. What is a speedo head?


The speedo head or cluster is the part that houses the speedometer and tach, etc. now it may be the speedo cable that comes from the transmission to the speedo head that has broken. If so replace the cable and your back in business. If it is the head you can get them from your local recycle yard.

1996 ford taurus odometer stopped working


the Speedo in your car is electronic, the problem is the tiny motor that moves the needle is most likely defective, there are no parts for the Speedo available to the consumer from Ford, you must remove the Speedo and have it repaired by a authorized Speedo repair shop. here is a link to a good one I know about.
