In general, there are two possibilities. 1, remove the entire speedometer cable and housing, replacing it with a new one. 2, if the cable housing is still intact you can get an inner cable and just feed that through. Some of the inner cable kits can be difficult to cut to length so you may need to put it in, check for length then pull the inner cable out and follow the instructions for cutting it to length.
IF THE CABLE IS DAMAGED, THE HOUSING IS DAMAGED. ITS A COMMON PROBLEM. REPLACE WITH NEW PARTS
To change the speedometer cable on a 1990 Toyota truck, disconnect the cable, feeding it through the grommet, then disconnect it from the transmission. The process can then be reversed with the new cable.
There isn't a speedometer cable. There is a speedometer sensor,where it is located I am still trying to find out. On the tranny or in the speedometer or somewhere else?
Start by removing the gauge cluster, unhook the speedometer cable from back of cluster. Pull speedo cable thru the firewall, follow it down to the transmission, and then unhook it. Install in reverse order of removal.
I doubt if it has a cable. I have a 1990 350 and it's electronic.a pulse modulator on trans & nothing but wires on instrument cluster. .
No, it uses a cable.
It would probably be cheaper to replace the cable, check with your local auto wrecker. This used part should be very inexpensive, compared to repairing it.
Replace the speedometer cable. Better yet, replace the car. I had this problem in my 94 acclaim. Somehow it had gotten severed and no new part was needed. Take it to a mechanic you trust and all it will cost you is labor. No need to replace the car.
Check the side around the tailshaft.
Answerreplace the speedometer cable. the problem will get worse, before it brakes. there is no cure but replacement My 1989 Ford had a gear on the transmission that had to be replaced, cable was okay. Easier than replacing cable if it is like a Ford.
If the speedometer breaks, it effects the odometer. Check the speedometer cable it may be broken, even under the insulation.
It uses the VSS signal.
You can get a speedometer cable for your 1990 Toyota pickup truck at most auto-parts stores. Many Toyota dealerships have auto part departments open to the public.
When those things on my 92 B250 did not work, I replaced the speed sensor located on the transmission tailshaft and that fixed the problems. Hope that helped! Mark When the speedometer and odometer did not work in my 1990 B250, I had to replace the speed sensor, instrument cluster (speedometer) and replace a tiny gear (odometer) in order to get them working properly
There are two types of speed sensors and you can't tell until you look. One is electrical/magnetic (VSS) and one is a cable that goes directly into the instrument cluster. Here is my answer to How to replace the Speedometer Cable in a 1990 Toyota 4x4 Pickup 3.0 3VZE V6. To remove the cable you will need to unhook the e-brake assembly and seperate the speedometer cable from the e-brake at the firewall by the gas pedal. On end goes to rear of the instrument cluster and the other end attaches to a small gear at the rear of the transmission. The instrument cluster will need to be removed.
definitly a part...either the odometer unit itself, a speedometer cable or just the gear that's in the transmission under the cable...I say this as I've never seen a digital speedometer on any topaz or tempo from 1990 a before
Are you sure you have a cable in your car You may have a speed sensor therefor it's electric speed control look on top of the tranny towards the back right above the axle for your sensor
replace the sensor which is usually in the rear diffrential or the transmission case
On my 1990 Integra RS the speed sensor is a part of the speedometer assembly. I got code 17 after repairing a dry/noisy speedometer cable. After putting the speedometer cable and instrument cluster back together, I test drove the car and found the speedometer wasn't turning because I didn't have the cable inserted all the way. After driving just around the block with the speedometer cable not connected, code 17 appeared.
There is no speedometer cable on a 1990 Chrysler New Yorker. The speedometer is electically driven by a speed sensor mounted on the transmission. often the contacts are just corroded and some electrical cleaner will fix it right up. Other times the sender will have to be replaced. They are available from major Auto Parts stores like NAPA, or from the dealer.
If the grinding sound seems to be coming from the speedometer and grinds faster as your speed increases, the likely cause is the speedometer cable. At least some 1990 Dodge trucks (mine) have electric speedometers Len
through the overflow bottle
how do you change the speedo cable on a 99 goldwing 1500, and how do you lube the front end/ I need instructions, not parts
i have a 1990 Isuzu trooper as well and the speedometer and odometer also quit working, they both come off of a mechanical cable that is attached to the drive train. that cable breaks, and you lose both speed and odometer indications. they are extremely difficult to find, so if you do, write me back...
