Replace the vehicle speed sensor, this should show up as code PO500
If the odometer stopped working and the speedometer and cruise control still work, you have a bad odometer. It is part of the speedometer assembly so the whole thing will have to be replaced.
Have speedometer head repaired professionally or replace speedometer head
odometer won't work w/o speedometer working
If the odometer has failed, does the speedometer still work? They are both driven by a cable which spins. If the speedometer is still working, than the odometer has jammed. Probably a dealer fix.
Stepper motor for speedometer has a broken gear in it, causing unpredictable operation. If the odometer is still working, then the speed sensor is OK. Instrument cluster needs repair.
There are a few reasons that could cause the speedometer to stop working on your Toyota Camry. If the mileage is still working then the speedometer cable end is damaged. If both the odometer and speedometer do not work then the cable is most likely broken.
93 Nissan 300ZX P. Steering/odometerThe odometer stopped but the speedometer still works? I have to belive these are two different problems. There just shouldn't be any connection between the two. Treat it as such. Look at the power steering first. Is the belt intact and tight? Fluid full? Digital readout on odometer or mechanical? If mechanical, and the speedometer still works, then it is just the odometer that's bad. Direct connection speedometer to odometer, with no connection to the power steering as far as I know, and no reason for there to be. Even if digital, the power steering is simply a pump and some hoses with no need for anything electrical. There is no reason for the two to be connected.
- I have a 2002 Caravan with the similar symptoms - speedometer stopped working but tripometer and odometer still work. The speedometer needle is wrapped all the way around past the top speed and resting on the bottom of the needle resting peg. I saw a posting about reseting the dashboard by removing the IOD fuse and replacing it but that did not help. I also tried pressing the trip button in and turning the ignition on as described in another post with no luck. Has anyone solved this or do I have a faulty speedometer requiring replacement? thanks Steve
witch one did you change the one in the dash or on top of the rearend
Don't know, but I think this is a problem with this vehicle/year. Ours was fixed for free by the dealer.
check for a loose wire at the fuse box
You can still drive the car, but your odometer will not move without the speedo cable attached. Make sure you disconnect the cable from the gauges and where it connects to the engine.
If the odometer is not working but the speedometer is still indicating speed, the most likely fault is a set of small plastic gears inside the speedometer instrument itself. I have seen these gears available for sale at various BMW parts specialists. Removing the dash cluster for access to the speedometer is not difficult in a 1987 E30 car. With the cluster on the bench, you can repair the speedometer gears or replace the whole thing. Used speedometers are plentiful at on-line auction sites such as eBay.
if the cluster still lights up but the speedo still inop possible cause is the speed sensor in the transmition
If the instrument cluster is just mechanical then you will need to pull it out and check that the gears and rod that connect to the odometer are working and still connected and if they are then you will need to have the cluster overhauled by a certified speedometer shop........
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.
there is no separate drive for the odometer, so it's the gauge... also, everyone should have a manual for their vehicle, and the library should have a professional manual available...in the reference section, you'll have to make copies of the important sections...good luck :)
There isn't a speedometer cable. There is a speedometer sensor,where it is located I am still trying to find out. On the tranny or in the speedometer or somewhere else?
could be the speedo cable?
== == It is plastic gear driven. There is no cable as in earlier vehicles. Although the output shaft in the transmission still operates the speedometer and odometer, the plastic gear drives a sensor that is plugged into the wiring harness. On the other end, it's included in one of two large connectors that attach to the back of the instrument cluster. No cables!
check to see if vehicle speed sensor is bad. it will show up on computer scan that can be done at autozone for free.
If the speedometer is still working and the odometer isn't, then you have an internal failure in the speedometer head assembly. Everything is self contained and non-servicable. It can only be replaced as an entire assembly. There is a microproccessor(computer) in it that uses vehicle speed information provided by the vehicle's data network to operate both the speedo and the odo. If one of those two is operating but not both, then the speedo head is getting the input it needs from the network, and processing it. Whatever componet is not operating has failed, but it is not servicable without the entire assembly.
The odometer has failed. Unfortunately, there isn't realy any troubleshooting involved. The speedometer and the odometer run off the same input. In a nutshell the above is correct, because to fix it you have to replace it. I own a 1997 Mazda B4000, except for cosmetics....same truck. Found the answer myself today...in the instrument panel there are 3 clusters....the cluster with the tack, spedometer, odometer and trip odometer is where your issue lies....there is a plastic gear that wears out inside...be advised their is a great deal of labor involved in this project....I highly suggest a proffessional do this for you...also due to it being a plastic part, I would rather buy a new part from the dealer than take my chances at the local yard were the part has been exposed to the elements for however long. Their may be other issues involved, but his was my experience
I see that it is a Mazda but what is the year,and model. Just reply but clicking on the discussion and type your response.
