Hey Seth==It can be the speed sensor or wiring. It needs ot be checked out. GoodluckJoe

You replace it, that's how. Happened to mine, works just fine now. Make sure you get it done at the dealer. They will put a special sticker in your door jam to show that you have additional mileage on the car.

If you are trying to replace a faulty speedometer, there should be a couple of clips on the back of the instrument cluster. All you need to do is push the lever and pull the connector out. It is illegal to disconnect the speedometer in the United States for any reason other than to repair or replace it.

How do you fix the speedometer on a 2002 Chrysler Town and Country?

I own a 2001 T&C and have experianced an issue a couple of times with my speedometer where it stopped working. Upon closer inspection, somehow the needle had flipped all of the way around (I think it happened when I was replacing the battery). All it took to fix was physically moving the needle back to the correct side of the rest pin (minor dissassembly of dash required, but not too time consuming).

1993 BMW 318i Speedometer and odometer quit working A couple days ago the speedometer was fluctuating on speed now quit working all together where is the input for the VSS located or any ideas thanks?

On the back of your diff housing is a unit which is connected to a plug. Disconnect the plug and remove/replace the unit on the diff attached with 2 bolts. Do not lose the O=ring. Simple procedure. It can only go in one way, but mine did not solve the problem. Cheapest option to start with, but could be the speedo cluster itself also.

Speedometer and odometer not working in Honda Accord?

Try letting the reset knob snap back when you release it. Do it a couple of times. Sometimes the mechanism doesn't re-engage and you have to work the reset buttom a few times. If your speed sensor is not at fault, then the problem lies within the electronics of the speedometer iteslf. Buying a used one will not gaurantee the problem will be resolved or will not return. I'm an electonic Technologist and repair this type of fault regularly. Email me for more information.
