I had the exact same problem on my 1996 civic hatch 1.6 liter 4cyl. It was a simple fix once I found the problem. If you look under the intake manifold at the rear of the engine there is a pack of wires. This pack rubs on the bottom of the intake and crates a short which screws up the speedo, sets of the check engine light and gives a trouble code (if you know how to read the check engine flashes) that there is a problem with the O2 sensor, and somtimes the headlights would surge. Just crawl under the car when it is up on stands and gently turn over the pack of wires under the intake to expose the bare wire or wires. Tape them up and away you go. My car had 230,000 km when this problem occured. It was a royal pain to find but a cheap easy fix.
Bad speed sensor.
Nope, bet it was the other way around... Your speedometer stopped working and your check engine light came on. A broken speedometer (don't know what car so I can't pinpoint it) will cause a whole bunch of codes.
check your speedometer sensor located back left of engine bay on top of the transmission
You can test your 1997 Oldsmobile 2.4 liter engine oil pressure sending unit with a diagnostic tester. The diagnostic tester is the most reliable way to make sure your sending unit is working properly.
the speedometer on my 97 toyota camary stopped working and the check engine light came on why
it is ok to continue driving the vehicle while the catalytic converter is not working properly?
There are several possibilities why the speedometer is not working. The VSS, vehicle speed sensor may have failed or become unplugged. The speedometer may have failed, or the ECM, engine control module, may have failed or there could also be wiring issues.
You will have poor or no ignition.
The check engine light only comes on for something that affects emissions
I think you need a speed sensor
2002 Tahoe speedometer quit working and trans will not shift, ABS light on. NEW ANSWER: You need to have the engine and transmission scanned with an OBDII engine scanner so you can find out what speed sensor has gone bad / quite working.
You need to have it checked for codes to know what to diagnose.
If the engine is fuctioning properly try disconnecting the ground battery terminal for 1 minute. If the engine is fuctioning properly and this does not cure your needs. It will have to be reset by a mechanic with a diagnostic machine for Toyota.
A speedometer in a 1994 Toyota Carina E 1.6 is exposed to the elements in the undercarriage of the car. Perhaps, it is not working properly until the car warms up because the cover has broken off or there is ice accumulating in that area.
maybe your speed sensor is bad you will get a check engine light on the dashboard too.
Your service engine light can be on because your gas cap isn't on properly or because you are having issues with your engine. You can get a free diagnostic at your local Auto Zone.
If carb. perhaps choke is not working properly

I HAVE THE SAME PROBLEM AND IT STARTED TODAY I NOTICED IN MINE THERE IS NO FIRE IN MY #2 AND #3 PLUGS DID YOU GET THAT ANSWERED IF SO PLEASE HELP ME I CAN NOT START MINE ANYMORE AND I GET TOLD IT IS 1 OUT OF A MILLION THINGS
The 1987 Celebrity uses an electronic speedometer. There is a VSS(vehicle speed sensor) on the trans-axle that could have failed. The speedometer itself may have failed, the ECM (engine control module "computer") may have failed or there could be wiring issues.
There are two diagnostic connection ports, there is a diagnostic connection port below the dashboard on the drivers side. A second diagnostic port can be found in the engine compartment on the firewall.
When sugar is placed in a car engine, it can clog up the engine. This may leave it not working properly and would have to be flushed or replaced.
Check the speed sensor.
That sounds like a problem within the engine control module or possibly the wiring,
? The speedometer cable attaches to the transmission, not the engine. Please try again with more info.
