There are a few reasons that could cause the speedometer to stop working on your Toyota Camry. If the mileage is still working then the speedometer cable end is damaged. If both the odometer and speedometer do not work then the cable is most likely broken.

If both the speedometer and odometer stopped working it is probably the speed sensor in the transmission gone bad. If only the speedometer quit you may have to replace the dash cluster with a reconditioned unit.

If it's an analog speedometer, first check the condition of the speedometer cable. It may need to be replaced.

In my personal experience the speedometer stopped working because the mechanical drive cable broke.

Nope, bet it was the other way around... Your speedometer stopped working and your check engine light came on. A broken speedometer (don't know what car so I can't pinpoint it) will cause a whole bunch of codes.

If the speedometer breaks, it effects the odometer. Check the speedometer cable it may be broken, even under the insulation.

we had to replace the speed sensor in mine and it corrected the problem with the speedometer and the shifting. Good luck

If it is not your speedo cable then it is probably a gear inside the speedometer. I fixed mine with superglue!

CHECK THE SPEED SENSOR TO MAKE SURE IT IS HOOKED UP AND DO AN OHMS TEST ON IT TO MAKE SURE IT ISNT BAD

Start with the vehicle speed sensor the feeds the speedometer and odometer.Also look at the Brake/Speedometer problem associated with the Windstar recall for a leaking brake pressure switch
