I think it is a manual speedo so take the cable soose at the dash and pull the cable out. Then take it loose at the trans and pull the piece that is broken off out. Go to the parts store and get anew cable and install it with lots of speedo cable lube, If it is electric change the speed sensor.
Last answer is incorrect. If the speedo didn't work then it would have been. The problem is with the cluster. Go to your local salvage yard or eBay and get another speedo.
Getting closer. It is actually the small plastic gear in the odometer. You can get a new one at odometergears.com or get a whole new cluster.
The odometer is separate from the speedometer. The odometer counts how many miles you have driven total, while the speedometer shows how many miles you will travel in an hour if you maintain a given speed. You should immediately take you vehicle to a qualified service technician, and get the odometer fixed.
If the speedometer breaks, it effects the odometer. Check the speedometer cable it may be broken, even under the insulation.
miles - U.S. km - Canada whatever the outer portion of your speedometer shows
Drive on a freeway or highway where there's a speedometer check point. Set your odometer to zero, drive the exact speed limit (try to use cruise control), and after the speedometer check point is over (5 miles), you will be able to determine if your speedometer is working correctly based on the miles driven according to your odometer and the end of the checkpoint.
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.
According to a website I was looking at : For a 1995 Ford Crown Victoria , 4.6 : ( 15 city / 23 highway , miles per U.S. gallon )
about 40 miles per gallon
For a 1998 Ford Crown Victoria : ( 15 city / 22 highway ) miles per U.S. gallon According to a website I was looking at
A Ford Crown Victoria receives an average of 20 miles per gallon: 19 in the city, 21 on the highway.
The gas mileage for a 1987 Ford Crown Victoria is 17 miles per gallon on the highway and 11 miles per gallon in the city. The combined mileage is 13 miles per gallon.
the speed sensor is located on the side of the transmission, there is no physical cable like the older cars, the speedometer and sensor are electronic. If the speedometer is working and showing speed traveled but the trip meter (odometer) is not working, the speedometer itself is faulty, is the speedometer is not showing speed travel and the odometer is not logging miles travel, then most likely the speed sensor is dead.
The over-all size of the tire and wheel would change the calibration of the speedometer/odometer.
It is called a speedometer. It also has a thing built in called an odometer to tell you how many miles you have traveled.
For a 2000 Ford Crown Victoria : ( 16 city / 23 highway , miles per U.S. gallon ) According to a website I was looking at
1996 ford crown victora gets 17 miles to the gal city highway 26 miles to the gal. I have 99000 miles on my car and it still runs like new. the crown vic was made for the highway!
According to a website I was looking at : A 2004 Ford Crown Victoria gets ( 15 city / 23 highway , miles per U.S. gallon )
Crown victorias are a popular car often used by law enforcement in the past. Deciding what to pay for a used Crown Victoria depends on things like how old it is, how many miles it has and the condition.
Your rpm and odometer sensor were probably busted.
anywhere from 20 to 28. Depends how you drive.
With proper care and maintanance, ive witnessed them do 350,000+ miles
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.
The speed the vehicle is traveling in MPH and KPH. Also the total miles traveled by the vehicle is recorded by the odometer. It also will have a resetable trip meter that will record miles traveled at any given time.
Our odometer/tripmeter also just stopped working at 220,000 miles. This is an integral part of the speedometer assembly, and cannot be repaired. The entire speedometer must be replaced.
16 city / 23 highway ( at most )
An odometer measures the miles per hour (mph).
