first you remove the instrument cluster cover by taking out the headlight switch, rear defrost switch ect, take out all blank covers as well, use a Phillips screwdriver and remove all screws holding it on. take out the two screws holding the cluster to the dash. take out the five screws that hold the cover over the pedals in place. now reach up behind the cluster to the speedo cable, there will be a clip that as to be drepressed with your finger while you pull it back off the speedo guage. next you pop the hood and use a long Phillips head on a ratchet or a 13mm socket and remove the hold down bolt on the cable at the transmission. pull the gear head straight out and pull the other end through the firewall towards the front of the car. you will have to slacken the rubber boots at the firewall to do this. replacement is reverse.
Speedometer cable replace 1989 toyota
Back of the speedometer, through the firewall and into the top of the transmission.
Most of the time, the speedometer cable breaks, and you replace it. The best way to find out, is to unscrew it from the transmission, and see if you can pull the cable out from the casing. If it checks out to be good, then it will be the drive gear inside the transmission, or the speedometer itself.
The speedometer cable on a 1989 S10 is behind the steering wheel. The speed sensor is mounted on the transfer case tailshaft.
Try blowing graphite down there.
probably a broken cable drive.
There is no cable....It is electric.....The speed sensor is on the transmission...Its called the VSS(Vehicle Speed Sensor)...Easy to take out and install...One bolt...Unplug the connector and remove the bolt and the sensor slides out.
i had the same car. its probally the cable that runs from the back of the speedometer to the trany. you have to pull out the instrument cluster. its not that hard.
Probably does not have a speed sensor. It would have a speedometer cable that goes from the back of the speedometer, through the firewall, underneath the car, and into the transmission.
I believe that the first digital cluster on a S-10 Blazer was in 1989.
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.
Most likely have to change the cable.
