If your speedometer is cable driven and not electronic, it sounds like the cable needs to be lubricated. You remove the cable from the back of the speedometer and pull out the inner cable and slide it back in while lubericating it with some speedo grease.
No, the speedometer is driven electrically from the PCM.
There are several things you can do to repair your speedometer. You can replace the speedometer cable. You can replace the speed sensor in the transmission.
Loose or failing speedometer cable Speedometer head needs repair
There is no Cable it is a speed sensor on the transmission
Most likely speedometer cable
A 1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee does "NOT" have a speedometer cable. It has an electronic speedometer with a built in motherboard. It receives its signsls from sensors on the transmission and the transfer case.
The 2000 Mercury Sable starter will have three retaining bolts. There will be two cable retaining nuts on the front of the starter.
if it's the speedometer cable you just unhook the cable from in back of the speedometer head in the dash by unscrewing it and taking it off and on the transmission it also unscrews and then just pull the complete cable out and replace with a new cable.
A 1994 Plymouth Sundance/Duster does not use a speedometer cable. Instead, it uses a Speed Sensor located on the transmission.
To repair the speedometer on the 2003 Suburban, first check to see what is causing the malfunction. You might need to replace a fuse or even the cable.

If the speedometer is not working it probably needs a new speedometer cable. If the speedometer is actually broken either take it to as speedometer repair shop or replace it.
Actually , it doesn't have a conventional speedometer cable , it has an electronic speedometer and a vehicle speed sensor ( VSS ) according to my Haynes repair manual
The speedometer is electric, there is no cable. There is a speed sensor on the transmission that sends a signal to the PCM, which in turn sends a signal to the instrument cluster to display speed.
The speedometer is electronic...there is no speedometer cable.
If speedometer working--probably needs new head or repair If speedometer not working could be a bad cable
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.
The most common reason for a speedometer to fail is a broken speedometer cable. Loosen the nuts on each end of the speedometer cable. Remove the speedometer cable retaining clips. Reverse the process to install the new speedometer cable.
Speedometers are not driven with a cable anymore, they are electronic.
According to my Haynes repair manual, 1996 and later models do not use a conventional speedometer cable. They use an electronic speedometer and a vehicle speed sensor (VSS)
I am having the same problems with a used 96 sable bought recently. No speddometer odometer trip odometer and no radio function. (also low coolant level idiot light is always on, though the expansion tank has coolant in it)I understand that this car has no speedo cable, it is electrical. a shop told me that the dash cluster is bad. I am going to replace the dash cluster myself with a used one. I will update you on the progress, and check here periodically for other useful tips in troubleshooting/ repair advice.
First check the speedometer cable going into the top of the transmission. If it is not broken the instrument cluster must be replaced.
It doesn't have a speedometer cable. The speedometer is operated electronically.
Your 1988 Nissan 300 speedometer cable is held in place with swivel nuts on each end of the speedometer cable. Turn the swivel nuts to the left. The speedometer cable will come off. Reverse the process to install your new speedometer cable.
