Im not sure why but i now it can cause my father has a old Ford f-100 and he got a ticket for going 67 around a turn and theres no way it tops out at prolly 50. Or was there a car in front of u when u got pulled?
Yes it can! I have a 1998 Ford Ranger, it wasn't "right" straight from the factory. There are a variety of reasons including wrong size tires, worng gear in tranny on older models, defective instrument cluster. I am sure there are more reasons.
Recently a relative have a brand new 2004 Ford clocked at 5 mph over what the speedometer said the car was traveling. The dealership had to reprogram / replace the computer brain AND reprogram the door remotes for the car.
yes! many things can and will go wrong with a speedometer cluster digital or analog, try www.prospeedo.com they can help answer any speedometer related problems.
Speedometer gives a wrong reading for Yukon XL 2003?
The speedometer is not working. When the speedometer gets to 65 mph I set the cruise control.
Broken tooth in speedometer head. Replace speedometer head
My speedometer works and the odometer does not because there is a plastic gear in the odometer that is broken.
Yes, tires that are larger or smaller in diameter than original factory size will cause a car's speedometer to be wrong.
If speedometer itself is working then gears inside the assembly are damaged.
Why doesnt your speedometer work on a 02 Mits Galant
whats wrong with it?
that depends what is wrong with it
Depends on what's wrong with the speedometer. Try re-soldering the contacts on the mainboard behind the instrument panel.
check if it has a speedometer cable if not the speed sensor needs to be replaced
2004 Chevy trailblazer is reading wrong passed 120mph
The speed should read fine with a GM speedometer, as the 110 and 150 are calibrated to go into the same cars with the same transmissions.
Vehicle Speed sensor disconnected
You can but your speedometer will be wrong.
You can fight any ticket. Winning in court is another thing. I would get the speedometer discrepancy documented and then get a lawyer.
No. Several Things Go Wrong With Speedometers. Cable Break, Plastic Gear In The Back Of Speedometer Housing, Or In The Housing Of The Transmission. But No It Will Not Hurt The Transmission.
Your speedometer may have failed, or the speedometer cable that connects to the transmission, or the plastic gear in the transmission may be broken.
Your speedo cable is broke and needs to be replaced
what exactly is wrong?
This question is very wide. But, I would suspect the speed sensor.
Need to figure out what's wrong with them, first.
Need to figure out exactly what's wrong with it first. Maybe it needs to be replaced, or maybe it's just in need of a new speedometer cable.
The speedometer cable is bad. It has a kink or a break in the line. I was guess a break from what you are describing.
It's broken. If it went left it might be the cable.
