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.

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.

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.

The 2000 Mercury Sable starter will have three retaining bolts. There will be two cable retaining nuts on the front of the starter.

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 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.

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 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.

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)

It does not have a cable, the speedometer is electric.

It doesn't have a speedometer cable. The speedometer is operated electronically.

First check the speedometer cable going into the top of the transmission. If it is not broken the instrument cluster must be replaced.
