check the vss located on the tailshaft of the transmission for the speedometer issue the odometer is figured out based on the speedometer also so it will quit as well. this sounds like either the sensor is bad or a short in the wire from it

The cord for the speedometer came undone from the transmission or the gauge cluster is bad

if it is all the gauges it's probably a fuse, or just some, like speedo and odometer it could be a bad wire

There are certain car gauges which are mandatory to have in a dashboard. These gauges are the speedometer, the temperature gauge, the fuel gauge, the tachometer, oil pressure gauge, charging system gauge, and odometer.

If the odometer has failed, does the speedometer still work? They are both driven by a cable which spins. If the speedometer is still working, than the odometer has jammed. Probably a dealer fix.

Your speedometer may have failed, or the speedometer cable that connects to the transmission, or the plastic gear in the transmission may be broken.

Cluster means all the gauges and warning lights on a vehicle i.e. fuel gauge,temp gauge speedometer, odometer, oil pressure warning lights etc.

I could be a bad float in the gas tank. you have a fused link in the circuit board.may have blown.

You can still drive the car, but your odometer will not move without the speedo cable attached. Make sure you disconnect the cable from the gauges and where it connects to the engine.

There is no fuse just for the speedometer. If the speedometer is not working, you may have a problem in the dash gauges cluster, or a vehicle speed sensor problem.

Answer 85 Toyota PU gaugesSince the speedometer is a mechanical connection and the rest electical, about the only thing that is going to affect them all is water. Does the windshield leak. Could be just bad luck the speedometer went at the same time as the gauges, but doubtful.

Speedometer, Fuel Gauge, and Tachometer.

The main reason that a speedometer and odometer will stop is because the speed sensor, located on the back top area of the transmission, has gone faulty. The part can be had very easily at any auto parts store, or junkyard. The reason the check engine light is on is because the speed sensor signal goes thru the ECM (computer) for the car to run the different things. If the signal is intermitent, or interupted, the light is set, as well as the speedo and odometer not working.Another reason is that the ECM it's self is bad, you can locate the ECM behind the glovebox and give it a few knocks while the car is running, if your engine responds by cutting out (even just a little) then replace it. they are around $110.Since there is no speedo cable, it must be an electrical issue with a sensor.QuestionWhy is there no speedometer cable? Does it have digital gauges?The reason I ask, is, when I first got my 1986 Celebrity, the speedometer and odometer did not work. The previous owner had bought a new speed sensor, but had not had it put in yet. I installed it first thing. no luck. In checking the speedometer cable, I found it was broken, (the end of the cable at the tans-axle). After I replaced the speedometer cable, it worked fine.Now, I cannot imaging gm did away with speedometer cables in the two years before the 1988 came out. I do have a 1990 S-15 with digital gauges, and I know it does not have a speedometer cable. But, the 1990 Sunbird I used to own, with analog gauges, did have one.

It means that you have a low reading on one of the gauges and you need to address the problem.

I believe the fuse that protects the speedometer also protects all the gauges in the dash cluster, so if that fuse was burned out all the gauges would be dead. If only the speedometer is not working I would suspect the speed sensor in the transmission to at fault, if the wiring checks okay.

Do you have check engine light? If not you have an electrical problem within the speedometer assembly.

The instrument cluster is what houses the speedometer, and the gauges.

User Avatar

It gauges the revs of the crankshaft (thats the rpm you see on your speedometer)

Possible Body Control Module internal failure..

The power or ground connections to the instrument cluster could be bad. Check the fuses, then the wiring to the dash to find a common problem for the heat, gauges and speedometer.

First I would try replacing the cable(s). If that didn't work, I would try replacing the gauges themselves. Good luck!! :^) The odometer/speedometer are not cable driven, they are electronic from 1986-1993. There are two small plastic gears in the gauge itself that become old and brittle. When they lose a gear tooth, the gauge will stop registering. The gears are available through Ebay sellers and several online vendors. The speedometer uses an electronic sensor on the rear differential. It could be anything from the sensor, wiring or the gauge itself. The odometer may be related. If the speedo won't go, obviously the odo won't either. There is an odo kit available from IPD.

Saturns do not use a speedometer cable to control the gauges on the cluster. It uses the magnetic pickup located in the vehicle speed sensor, mounted in the back side of the transmission. The computer then sends signals to the dashboard to operate the gauges electronically
