No problem Henry. Reach under dash and remove the cable from the speedo. Probably just a clip to squeeze or depress. Remove the cable from the transmission and any clips that may attach it to the frame, go under hood and pull the cable and rubber boot from the firewall, pull it all the way out and discard it. all the way out and discard it. Put the new one back in the same way the old one came out and connect it to trans and through the firewall pushing the rubber boot back onto the firewall and push it back onto the speedo till the clip clicks. Your done.

Sticking speedometer


Lubricating the inner speedometer cable located on the tail-shaft of the transmission will most likely cure the erratic speedometer. Unscrew the flexible outer cable and remove the inner cable. Clean the removed inner cable. As you slowly insert it back into the outer cable apply a generous amount of general automotive grease to the cleaned inner cable.

93 chevy g20 have speedometer cable


The speedometer cable should not have anything to do with changing the ball joint. it goes directly to the transmission on a 93. your grinding sounds like either someone didn't get the bearing back in the hub right or loose bolts on the wheel ..

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.

Why would speedometer needle bounce


The needle bounce may be related to the cable, it may be broken or just needs lube.
Remove the speedometer cable, locate the connection at the transmission and unscrew it, then locate the connection at the rear of the speedometer, remove the cable from the car, pull cable out of plastic housing and see if it comes out in two parts, if it does then cable needs replacing.
You will see the cable has two ends, is the cable is broke replace it, a broken cable will sometimes spin and not spin causing needle to jump, also a binding cable will do the same, if cable is good then spray wd40 in to cable and spin by hand. note; if cable is binding you will need to work it so it does not break. good day

Speedometer was working and now is not. Suspect that the speedometer cable is the problem. Have a new one and wanted to know the easiest way to replace it.


Make sure you lubricate the cable first, you may have to remove some of the bodywork from around the speedomiter to make it easyer to get at the screw thread on the clock, undo it from the clock you may need a small pair of pliers to turn the screw in an anticlockwise rotation, remove from speedo drive, and make sure all is clean and ready for the new cable, replace it wheel side first, following same route as orriginal, replace as previouse on the speedomiter, you may have to rotate wheel in order to locate the cable into the clock,tighten , check the cable does not foul any part when moving the handlebars from left to right.

My speedometer is not working at all i know it is the speed sensor. Now is that something that is easy to repair or is it something the tranny has to come out and get it fixed


Most speed sensors are mounted on the transmission and not that hard to replace.It should be located on the top of the tranny but all cars are different and mounted in different spots on the tranny.Your local auto parts store should be able to give you the exact location of the sensor.Its a matter of one bolt and a connector.

The speedometer and tackometer do not work on my son's 2002 Ford Ranger, the speedometer is electrical and assume the tackometer is also. How do I fix these problems?


First thing to check out is the instrument cluster fuse located underneath the drivers side steering wheel. Flip the plastic fuse box cover over and it will have a diagram that will show the exact location. Pull the fuse out and replace it. If the fuse is ok then you will need to check adn replace the speedometer cable that connects to the transmission. You will need to remove the instrument cluster and unscrew the end of the cable to remove it. If your cable is ok then the plastic gear inside your transmission may be broken

Speedometer Cable replacement


A universal kit will work for your application. Most of the time the center cable is what is damaged.

1. Remove speedometer cable from transmission
2. Remove speedo gear retainer and remove speedo gear.
3. Pull out cable from sheath - If broken you will only get part of it
4. Remove instrument panel and pull out section of cable still trapped in cable sheath if applicable.

For re install follow directions on package.

Pointers

1. Cable appears un-damaged: Check to make sure the speedo gear is not damaged where the cable enters it. Then also check the back of the speedo head cable hole for damage.
2. You can measure you two broken pieces to arrive at an appropriate length for ordering purposes.
3. Make sure this is well lubricated on install otherwise the speedo can jump up and down or damage the new cable.

Replace speedometer calbe


Replace the Speedometer Cable

1 - Remove the old speedometer cable from your car, first take off the doghouse and then the engine cover.

2 - Remove the screw underneath the dashboard and take down the steering column. This will give you access to the back of your speedometer.

3 - Take off the drive shaft bolt, and "O" ring, insert the speedometer cable through the firewall.

4 - Remove speedometer cable securing clamps from the engine compartment and on the transmission.

5 - Release the drive shaft nut from the "right angle" adapter (The nut is attached to the back of the transfer case).



Installing the Speedometer Cable

1 - Place the square end of the speedometer cable into the adapter and secure the drive shaft nut.

2 - Pull the speedometer cable through the firewall to the rear of the speedometer.

3 - Secure the "O" ring and attach the speedometer cable to the rear of the speedometer/odometer. It should be engaged in the speedometer's square hold. Tighten the drive shaft nut again.

4 - Replace the clamps that will secure the speedometer cable onto the transmission and in the engine compartment. Replace the engine cover.

5 - Drive your car slowly to be sure your speedometer is working properly. If it is, replace the doghouse. If you're stilling having problems, take the car to your mechanic.
