Since you replaced the sensor, and the speedometer still isn't working it is possible that you will need to replace the speedometer cable. Check the cable first to be sure that it is still properly connected, and if so replace the cable to see if that solves the problem.

Have your mechanic check the speedometer cable connections. They no longer use a cable. It is electronic. If the speedometer is not working but the odometer is, the problem is in the dash cluster. If both the speedometer and odometer are not working, the speed sensor in the transmission may be at fault.

I think the '93 has an electric speedo. Take it to the spedo shop.

HI, It could be a few things, the cable might have broken, the cable might have become disconnected at the speedometer, the cable might have become disconnected at the transmission, the speedometer might have become faulty or the back of the speedometer where the cable connects th it might have broken, if that happens then you need a new speedometer, it's cheaper and easirer to gat a replacement instrument cluster than look for just a speedometer. . The first is to check the cable at both ends and if that is ok then you just might need to look for an instrument cluster. It was my problem also and I had both things wrong, the cable was bad and my speedo was bad. I replaced the cable first then the instrument cluster. I bought the cable from a Chevy dealer and the instrument cluster on EBay and had no problems with it at all. Sometimes you can get a part from a Chevy dealer and if they don't have the part you can check with a Suzuki dealer, and then ther's EBay. I hope this helps you, good luck. Steve H.
Check the cable to see if it is connected if all is well you could possibly need a new one In Ford's..sometimes the speedometer cable might need lubed as it gets older instead of replacing the whole speedometer. Outside the passenger compartment firewall inside the engine compartment under the hood near the driver's side, you might see where the cable comes out and connects to the cable going to the wheel. A lot of times you can disconnect this connection and drop oil down the cable and that will solve a speedometer which varies while driving.
