Not sure what year you have? Is it digital, or analog (needles and numbers on plastic rolls) If it is the needle version, you may have a cable the runs up the back of the speedo cluster from the transmission. My 84 cougar had this. (I had disconnected it once, I forgot why) But anyways, it may be broken, or just loose. To tell if it just loose, or fallen off, you should be able to reach up behind from underneath down by the pedals. If I remember right, cuz its been a long time since I had it, there is a black plastic cover, which you can remove to get up there. You will need to lie on your back kinda to reach up. If it has come loose or off, it just threads on like the cable to from your wall to your tv. If its on, it may be broke. The speedo cable is connected to the transmission. It will have another bendable cable inside which spins while you drive, if it does, it could be broke on the inside of the cluster. If that is the case, goto a junk yard and pull one out of another car. If its electronic, and displays a error message, you are hosed. You need to locate another cluster. Junk yard is cheapest bet.

If it is electronic (not Digital) then youi have to replace the Odometer assy inside the instrument cluster. Go to http://www.dashusa.com/ford_trucks.htm and they can send one with your current milage on it for trade. The one for my 1994 cost $225.00 trade-in and that's installing it yourself. Ignore that it says Ford Truck as these folks handle all cars and trucks.

Why would the odometer stop working in a 96 Ford Explorer?

The odometer on a 96 Ford Explorer is tied into the speedometer. If the speedometer is working then there is a gear problem inside of the speedometer causing the odometer to not work.

Why would the odometer on a 1990 Dodge Ram quit working while the speedometer continues to work?

If you open the odometer, there are two small plastic gears. One is connected to the speedometer, the other to the odometer. The speedometer gear drives the odometer gear. In all likelihood, one of these gears is missing a few teeth. I have the same problem with my Ramcharger, same year.

Odometer isn't working on 2001 dodge caravan?

I would say you have a problem with the dash cluster. If both speedometer and odometer were not working I would say the problem may be the speed sensor but being only the odometer is out I would blame the cluster. I believe you will have to replace the cluster as a whole with a reconditioned unit. This will probably be a dealer item only.

The speedometer and odometer are electrically operated. There is no mechanical connection to the drivetrain. If there is no power, they don't work.


Odometer Why does my Camry odometer say I have driven almost twice as many miles as I have when the speedometer works right and the miles on the trip gauge are the same?

My thought would be that your vehicle is originally from a country that uses kilometers. The Speedometer face plate may have been swapped out but the odometer wasn't converted. One mile equals 1.6 kilometers, hence the difference you're recognizing.

Speedometer jumps around odometer is not working all the time - what is the problem how do you fix it?

I had 91 crx with the rpm needle would jump around sometimes. Then my distributor went out and I replace it and the problem did not come back. ---------- The speedometer cable probably needs to be lubricated with graphite powder. Don't know how to access the cable though. I have the same problem on my 94 si, but strangely, the odometer does seem to be working fine.

Why would my speedometer and odometer not work?

There is a cable which runs from your front axle to the odometer/speedometer. Inside this cable is a gear box. As the front axle spin it transfers how fast your axle is spinning to your speedometer. This also spins your odometer. Something is either worn out in the cable, gearbox, or one of the ends of the cable has become disconnected. It's a very inexpensive fix.
