The speedometer cable from the trainny to the gauge is loose or worn. Cost about $50 to $200 to tighten up or replace. Goodluck.

What happens to clocked up miles if I replace my speedo


if you have a regular state inspection, your last know miles will reflect in your scooters state records.Upon your next inspection it will show the new mileage. If you are worried about reselling your scooter, keep the records for the replacement and mark the miles on it at the time of replacement. The new owner will appreciate your honesty.

Speedometer is sticking and then jumping up every couple of mph


The speedometer in this truck is electronic, the needle is moved by a tiny electric motor called the speedometer needle stepper motor, a stepper motor is a DC motor than can hold one position rather than just rotate when power is applied to it. You will need to remove the instrument cluster from the truck and send it in to a Ford electronics repair center that repairs speedometers.

Speedo starts off fine for a couple of miles and then moves round the clock to max speed slowly. Next time out same beginning but it sticks at 65! Any idea? Chris


Thsi is likely a problem inside the speedometer guage internally with the driven gears. They use drive motors to drive the needles inside. If it is pretty continuous then the speedometer is in trouble and will require a speedometer specialist to rebuild the unit or replacement of the unit.

Mileage does not to work on the speedometer (97 850 T5)


Hi
most likely the mechanism has failed at the back of the instrument panel, Its not digital is it? just normal type. also sometimes the speedo cable pull back slightly into the dash the speed will still show but if it is not tight up against the back panel then sometimes the miles will not turn. You will have to remove the clocks to be sure.

Regards

Speedometer counter don't working


Sounds like the clocks have been tampered with if the speedometer is still working, You can try running the miles backwards with a drill on the cable, and then forwards again past the number where it jammed, run it back and forth a few times and once it gets past the stuck number youre sorted... it may happen again in 1,10,100 or 1000 miles time... and if so youre best with a new or scrapyard speedometer - write down the original mileage when you change the speedometer - maybe on a panel under the bonnet so you have something to go off to decide when to service the car - EG old mileage + new mileage = actual mileage. hope this helps.

Speedometer does not function properly. needle


A faulty vehicle speed sensor will cause this.
It's mounted on the back end of the transmission where the drive shaft slides into, near the top, it's just held in with a bolt, on the right side of the tranny, also has a wire connection.

You will need to pull the speedometer out and have the odometer (u call mileage counter) repaired, the little drive gear that comes off the speedometer to operate the odometer has failed or broken.
