1994 volvo estate 850 glt odometer trip has stop working


the speedometer on this car is worked via an electric signal
from the abs system,if the odometer trip has failed it will
require a new speedo head as the odometer is integral
part of the speedo.should be able to pick up a second hand
unit relativly cheaply.

The odometer and trip odometer for my 1996 ford explorer stop working. However, the speed still works. Any suggestions??


The gear in the speedometer assembly is broken causing the odometer and trip odometer to be inop. You can either buy a new speedo head or buy a gear kit from an online source (google Ford speedo odometer inop)for the kit.

Odometer stopped working


IF YOUR SPEEDO IS WORKING THEN YOUR VSS IS OKAY, BAD VSS WILL STOP SPEEDO AND USALLY CAUSE HARD SHIFTING. NORMALLY ODO IS CONTROLLED BY SERVO MOTOR WHICH MAY HAVE WENT OUT. CHECK EBAY FOR REPAIR SERVICES OR SIMPLY GET A SALVAGE CLUSTER AND HAVE MILEAGE RESET

Speedometer,trip meter,odometer stopped working 90 jeep cherokee on 31s


90 Jeep choerokee the speedo cable is held in place by a plastic retaining clip. If it was dislodged put it back. Otherwise if your car equiped with a cruise control then the speedo cable consits of two sections. Either one may go bad. (it's good for 200k miles)

Odometer/Trip Meter Not Owkring


it's most likely the cluster if one function works and the other doesn't. And, you likely have an electronic vehicle speed sensor that sends a signal to your analog cluster that then dispays your speed and odometer.

Speedometer and odometer not working 92 audi 100


I had similar problems with speedos in two 1990 Audi 100s, it was some time ago, but the contacts on the circuit boards on the back of the speedo deteriorate and do not give a good contact. I bought second hand speedos, only to find they had similar problems, eventually it was very easy to fix, I shaved matchsticks to chisel points and pushed them into the circuit boards to add pressure on the contacts and improve connection. After that repair drove the cars for a few years and the problem did not recur. It was a long time ago and I cannot remember exactly where the matchsticks were placed but look for soldered points near the edges of the boards. Regards, Michael
