Your speedometer on your 1995 Dodge caravan stopped working how do you find the cable to replace it?

There is no speedometer cable on a 1995 caravan. it is done by a speed sensor on the transmission and digtal data is sent to the computer and the computer then sends the signal to the speedometer. This is the case even when the speedometer looks analog. Likely a bad speedometer is the cause if it does not move as the speed sensor is used for other functions and would trip the "check engine" light if it was bad. the speedometer is part of the instrument cluster and likely you would need to change the whole thing.

Odometer and tact just stopped working what would be the fix?

Check the fuse in the fuse box; Also check to see if your speedometer cable snapped, this will cause the odometer to stop working as well If your speedometer is still working and just the odometer has stopped, the most likely problem is a little plastic drive gear in the instrument cluster. This is the most common problem with many makes of cars. If you are handy you can buy a replacement gear on Ebay for a few dollars and replace it yourself. Otherwise take the vehicle to an instrument repair shop. This problem usually occurs if you reset your odometer while travelling, it breaks a tooth off the little gear.


Why doesnt my speedometer in a 92 jeep Cherokee workbut the odometer does. I have replaced the sensor.?

you need to change the speedometer cause if your odometer is counting then speedometer should be working too. make sure your speed gear its working its in the side of the transmission The odometer and speedometer read off of the same signal. If one works, the signal is ok and the other gauge is bad.


The speedometer on your 1999 Chrysler Concorde stopped working Where is the speedometer cable at and could that be caused by anything else?

I am not sure if the 1999 is a magnetic pickup but my 2000 or late 1999 uses a magnetic pickup that screws into the side of the transmission. It has a wire plug that unplugs from it and they you can unscrew it from the side of the transmission. When my speedometer quit working it also cause the transmission not to shift correctly. I unscrewed the magnetic pickup and it was covered with iron filing which I removed with a clean cloth. When I screwed the old pickup back in the transmission I made sure it was not in far enough to rub on the gear teeth that rotate by it. The speedometer and the transmission worked fine after removing the iron filings from the end of the pickup.
