Plug itself usually runs up the steering column itself with very little play just enough to plug into the other end which is on the dash correspondence

Speedometer not working on 2002 dodge ram 1500

Removed cluster from dashboard and unplugged & turned the whole cluster clockwise very slowly and needle started moving from 150 mph back down to 0 mph when rotation was completely done. Kept cluster upright while re-installing and plugged back in the plugs on back and everything was fine. Called local Dodge dealer and told me would take 30-45 minutes to reset and would cost approximately $70 to fix. Took about 8-10 minutes of my time and saved myself $70. This may not work for everyone but this was my amazing quick fix thanks to GOD for giving me this thought to try this.

How can cracking the steering column make the odometer and speedometer fail?

I'm not sure if I understand you correctly. Are you saying you removed or lowered the steering column? If you did that, and the speedometer/odometer stopped working, it's most likely because the speedometer cable either somehow got broken or it came unplugged from the back of the instrument cluster. Go under the dash, and see if you can reach the speedometer cable. If you can, make sure it fully plugged into the cluster. If it is fully installed, push the metal tab holding the cable in place, and remove the cable. Try turning the cable, does it turn freely? It should. Then try pulling the cable itself out of the sheath, if it pulls out easily, it's probably broken somewhere in the middle.

Speedometer won't work on 1995 mustang

Modern cars no longer use a mechanical cable and speedometer. They have an electronic sensor called the vehicle speed sensor (VSS) which is mounted to the transmission where the old speedometer cable used to go. If the engine was replaced, perhaps the mechanic forgot to plug the wiring harness back into the VSS? Or perhaps he damaged the wiring or the sensor during the engine overhaul. (The transmission has to be removed to remove the engine from the car.)

99 jetta check engine light on, runs fine, speedometer not workin

o2 sensors will put your check-engine-light on. it is attached to the exhaust (closest to the motor)and rusts-out sometimes. you could try to fix it by buying the o2 sensor and use a socket-set to see if it loosens. i 'm not a mechanic but have had the issue, in the past, with the jetta II's and a 1997.the guys at vw dealers are great with info, if your a hands-on kinda guy/girl.

Help needed to install a speedometer on a 1969 volkswagen beetle

Open front Trunk to access speedometer, remove cardboard cover and unplug electrical connections to speedometer one at a time and mark them so you can hook them back up in the same places, then un-screw the speedometer cable and remove the two nuts that hold speedometer to dashboard.

Speedometer and odometer

It is the EBTCM. (eletronic brake traction control module ) You can still get them from Cadillac for the small fee of $1300.00. I know I fell out of my chair too... But the good news is, yes the company on ebay can fix it for about $200.00, but you need to pull it, and send it to them. Looking under the hood, it is on the driver side, under every-thing. it is at the point where the radiator hose enters the engine block. It has a lage plug of wires, and some brake lines hooked to it. only pull just the plastic part off and send.. Good luck and i hope this helps everyone...
