Best Answer

Speedometer is ran by electronic sensor on rear end. Odometer is ran from speedometer. If both don't work problem is sensor. If speedometer works sensor is okay. If speedometer works and odometer does not problem is in mechanical parts (gears) of of odometer and has to be replaced. Can get used from eBay (search for speedometer or odometer, is one unit) or take to dealer.

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.

check the vss located on the tailshaft of the transmission for the speedometer issue the odometer is figured out based on the speedometer also so it will quit as well. this sounds like either the sensor is bad or a short in the wire from it The cord for the speedometer came undone from the transmission or the gauge cluster is bad

Odometer Why does my Camry odometer say I have driven almost twice as many miles as I have when the speedometer works right and the miles on the trip gauge are the same?

My thought would be that your vehicle is originally from a country that uses kilometers. The Speedometer face plate may have been swapped out but the odometer wasn't converted. One mile equals 1.6 kilometers, hence the difference you're recognizing.

The speedometer and odometer are not working on your 1988 240dl how do you fix these problems?

First I would try replacing the cable(s). If that didn't work, I would try replacing the gauges themselves. Good luck!! :^) The odometer/speedometer are not cable driven, they are electronic from 1986-1993. There are two small plastic gears in the gauge itself that become old and brittle. When they lose a gear tooth, the gauge will stop registering. The gears are available through Ebay sellers and several online vendors. The speedometer uses an electronic sensor on the rear differential. It could be anything from the sensor, wiring or the gauge itself. The odometer may be related. If the speedo won't go, obviously the odo won't either. There is an odo kit available from IPD.

I believe the head is the part of the speedometer that is directly behind the faceplate of the gauge. It takes the input from the cable spinning at X rpm's (or sensor if electronic) and converts it mechanically into what your speedometer gauge indicates on the faceplate.
