Question about 2000 Chrysler Town & Country

Why is my speedometer and odometer stuck at zero?

My battery died about two weeks ago due to the rear door being left open over night. We charged the battery but it acts like it does not want to start ever since. Now today when I drove it the speedometer and odometer are stuck at zero.

Could be a problem with the engine computer, or the speed sensor in the transmission.
Is the check engine light on ?

SOURCE: Battery dies after doors are left open

Hello, you are wantng to know if you have the right size battery for your vehicle. It sounds as if your battery may not have enough cold crank amps in it to support your vehicle, or either the battery you have has a bad cell. Your local auto supply store should be able to help determine if the battery is bad. It may also have just a surface charge and need to be charged on a trickle charger overnight or either there may be a parasitic draw on your battery beside the lights, but before going through a bunch of different test check your battery condition, then manufacturer specs, then battery cranking amps to manufacturer specs. I would say about a 800 cca battery at least.

a scanner that gets into the instrument cluster computer can reset the needles. or take the dash apart and manually turn dash cluster upsidedown, then the needles will move so rotate untill the needles are reset.

How do I fix speedometer that is stuck below zero?


dealer might be able to fix with the computer diagnostic tool. If there is a push button to reset odometer you can take a small wire and try and feed through the hole and raise needle above the pin. removing the instrument cluster cover is a pretty big task, if you cant find a place to insert a wire, only bypass I can suggest is drilling a tiny hole in the instrument cluster cover off to the side or top wherever the hole is least bothersome to you and then use a wire to raise above pin, after put a little clear silicone or a piece of tape over the hole to prevent dust building up inside the cluster

The problem originated when battery died two weeks ago first lost passenger lock operation, Had faded actuator noise then drivers then rear doors


Perhaps frayed wire in driver's door hinge area shorted killing the battery and continued to break down causing other failures.

1988 lxi honda accord battery drains overnight


Just a couple problems I've had. dome light left on due to faulty door open switch, spot light charger or equipment left plugged or wired to battery, lately I thought I had a bad battery but I just need to clean the terminal connections. One more thing if your car is running you can pull the negative cable off the battery. If the car dies your alternator could be the problem. If you have a light in the trunk or under the hood you could pull the bulb out to make sure you don't have a faulty switch turning them on. These are kind of simple and that is the way I start out.

the speed sensor is located on the left side of the transmission. it is more than likely loose. it controls the odometer and speedometer

Speedometer needle is stuck behind the pin


Here is how it happens, The positive battery cable was loose, after adjusting the battery cable the speedometer needle went under the retention ping.
How to fix it:
1- remove the positive battery cable
2- have a person to look at the speedometer needle
3- Make the battery cable to touch the positive terminal of the battery (this will make the needle to jump over the retention pin)
4- Tight cable again.
