if you have changed tire size from the original that will throwit off,in which case the speedo gear can be changed or the computer can be recalibrated if so equipped.

It measures the actual speed of the car at the time

If the speedometer and abs light are not working then you have a speed sensor problem. If the speedometer or odometer are not working then you will need to take it to the dealership and have them send it off for repair.

It does not change the actual speed of a vehicle but changing tire size can affect the accuracy of the speedometer.

To fix the inoperative speedometer you will need to replace the speed sensor. It is located on the side of transmission and has 2 wires coming out of it.

Yes, it is obvious that if the radius of tire is small than it effect on the speed of the car. Smaller tires will show the speed on the speedometer more than actual.

The speedometer cable is most likely worn out and needs to be replaced. The tension gears that make the needle move have become stripped over time and the teeth slip in and out of position.

It does not have a speedometer gear. The speedometer is electronic and gets its signal from the ABS and transmission computers from the wheel speed and transmission speed sensors.It does not have a speedometer gear.

The speedometer in a car runs based off the speed of the transmission. The gears in the transmission spin at a known rate for the speed the vehicle is traveling at. The faster the gears spin the more the speedometer goes up. If a person replaces stock tires with larger tires, then the tires will spin slower, which will cause the speedometer to read at a value that is less than the actual speed.

no. a SPEEDometer measures SPEED. not velocity: direction

In a car, the speedometer measured Instantaneous speed. This comes from the assumption that the car does not slow down and speed up fast enough for the speedometer to be able to give an average of the changing speed.

The 1987 Celebrity uses an electronic speedometer. There is a VSS(vehicle speed sensor) on the trans-axle that could have failed. The speedometer itself may have failed, the ECM (engine control module "computer") may have failed or there could be wiring issues.

A cars speedometer measures speed. A speedometer is a gauge that displays the speed of a vehicle so the driver will know how fast the vehicle is moving.

A speedometer. If you don't have a speedometer you will have to get some one to drive beside you and tell you what speed you are doing then you can judge your speed by the tac.

An automobile speedometer measures speed. That is why it is called a speedometer rather than a velocimeter.It tells you how fast the car is moving, not in what direction it is moving, so speed, not velocity.
