Mazda Protege

How do you fix a broken speedometer and turn off the hold light on a 1994 Mazda Protege?

Check to see if the wires that go from the hold light down on the shift lever aren't shorting because of the insulation peeling. I had the same thing happen to my 94 Protege but the light started doing that after I whacked the dashboard really hard so I must have messed something up under there. I had the same problem on a 93 Mazda and it was a bad fuse just search for it and put in a new one it will all start to work again. The speed sensor which is located up near the instrument cluster is bad. My 1994 is doing this too, I need to find out if the speed sensor is part of the cluster or if it's a separate item.

The speedometer cable (which runs from the transmission to the dashboard) has snapped. This is a two-piece cable, and the one-piece cable in later Proteges will not work. I had the transmission replaced, and the cable could never be fit in properly. This is a mechanical speedometer, so you would have to change the entire speedometer part of the instrument panel to use a magnetic/electronic speedometer.

My knee-jerk answer would be a TCM (Transmission Control Module) problem, but have a shop hook up a scan tool and they can tell you what is wrong.
