you can replace the speedometer by taking it to your nearest car dealers shop/ sale or you can just take it and post it online by taking a picture and people can tell you and give you a bit more information about this ;)

Hey Criss==First take it loose at the speedometer end then pull it out of the housing. If it is broken, take it loose at the trans and remove the broken part. Put them togethe…r and measure the length. Go to the store and get a cable the correct length and get some speedo cable lube. In stall the cable into the housing with lots of grease and hook up the ends and that is all. If the housing is bad you will need a new housing and cable. GoodluckJoe
Answer . If you have a electrical speedo you don't have a cable. Change the speed sensor in the trans..
there is no speedo cable it is an electric system. Ok, then the electrical sending unit for the meter is located where? Answer Under the car on the right side of the transm…ission near where the right drive shaft comes out. There are a couple of wires coming from the pickup.

To replace the speedometer cable on a 1986 Chevy Celebrity: According to my factory service manual: 1. Remove the trim panel underneath the steering column. 2. The cable… is held in place by a quick release button. Reach up by the steering column and push the quick release button and pull the cable off. I like to attach a wire or string to the cable so that I have something to pull the new cable in with. Then under the hood: 1. Pull the speedometer cable out of the dash, if you used a wire untie it. 2. Follow the cable to the other end at the transaxle. Unscrew the nut that holds the cable to the transaxle, pull the cable out. Reverse these steps to install the new cable. Be careful to follow the route of the original cable.
there is no speed cable, it has a electronic transmission with wires
unscrew it from the speedometer head under the dash and unscrew it from the tranny and pull the old one out and install the new cable.
you dont it is against the law in all states.
It does not have a cable. It is controlled by the speed sensor. The vehicle speed sensor ( VSS ) provides information to the ( PCM ) Power train controll module to indicate ve…hicle speed. Check VSS.
I pretty sure it doesn't have a speedometer cable, it is electronic.
Would other Chevy Malibu modules' metric speedometer gauge work as a replace of a Chevy 2008 Malibu's Imperial gauge?
If you want a metric speedometer simply hold the info+return buttons down simultaneously for a few seconds, then you can switch to imperial units and vice versa. The better… question is "where was that in the manual?" lol
There is no speedometer cable on that vehicle. The speedometer is driven electronically.
NO cable. it has a vehicle speed sensor bolted into the transmission. Electronic controlled.
its electronic, there is no cable
I believe that the first digital cluster on a S-10 Blazer was in 1989.
