How can you check if a loud whining noise from the dash is the speedometer cable in a 95 Saturn SL?

You could disconnect the cable down at the transmission, drive it around, and see if the noise has quit. Some cars don't have a cable-the speedo is electronic, so then you might have a vacuum leak somewhere under the dash.

If the Park Ave is a year that uses a speedometer cable, check that the drive gear for the cable is working. Check the cable to insure that it is not broken of stuck, then check the speedometer itself. These steps will let you know what is broken so that you can fix it.

To fix a speedometer in a 91 Sunbird, check to ensure the cable has not come loose. If the cable has come loose, you will need to tighten it with a wrench.

A 1991 dodge dynasty speedometer bouncing could be a sticking speedometer cable, or a bad drive gear. Check the cable first, and lubricate it to see if the problem stops.

If it is a stock model speedometer, there is no speedometer cable. there is a sensor on the transmission which transmits signals in a wire to the speedometer assembly, which is on your dashboard. If you have a problem check the speed sensor, or the wiring to it. JOEDI
