The speedometer doesn't work. It doesn't respond to the speed we are going.
Tach is driven by a motor signal, speedo is from the trans the sensor is bad on the transmission
Have it checked for codes, the code will tell you what to diagnose.
Blue wire is for a tach I believe
Transmission problem. Yes it is related to the speedometer not working. VSS sensor may be bad. Have the transmission computer scanned. I had a flshing s light for a long time, while my spedometer worked fine, the car had trouble starting. I replaced the main relay under the dash and haven't had a prob since. I had the same problem with my 91 accord Ex...it turned out to be the alternator. The "S" light was malfunctioning along with the speedometer and Tach. While the light stayed on, the tach and speedo where intermittent problems.
There isn't one, you shift by "feel" or by the red tick marks on your speedometer ,|,&.
The Mazda tachometer and the speedometer have separate cables. The tachometer cable probably does not work properly. Change the tachometer cable.
Try changing the headlight switch.
For any of you who may have been watching this question, I'll give you the answer myself. The answer is YES. After purchasing the one with the factory tach and installing it, everything works like it should.
I'm not sure about the speedometer, but if the tach is not working a good bet would be the tach filter. With age, a wire often breaks off on these. Look in one of the service manuals to find location. The speedometer may have a similar sensor, but I'm not certain. Thanks! I will check out the book ASAP. Appreciate your answering.
Check for a blown fuse.
check the fuse panel
That's how you're taught - use the tach to determine when to shift, and the speedometer for recovery speed if you lose a gear. After a while, you get to the point where you know when to shift by the sound of the motor.
not all Toyota corolla's come with tachometers but if it has one it will be on the left side of the gauge panel next to the speedometer.
Check your fuses before anything else. Easiest and cheapest fix.
there is a silver box behind the tach and speedometer that controls the flashers it is the brain of all electrical
For lights behind the speedometer/tach warning light area, you have to take the screws out of the panel and then guide it out enough that you can twist it sideways and pull out the burned out bulbs. Replace with bulbs #194 and I would use the Long Life version of the bulbs.
It does not have a fuse, the speed sensor works the speed-o-meter \ \ I disagree, because the Radio fuse , in the fuse box under the hood will work the speedometer, Tach, and Message center
Tach and speedometer go on and off. Also sometimes during driving the security light on dash stays on constantly. Also it eventually starts and dies until it won't turn over anymore
In between the speedometer and tach, there are two buttons. Press the one on the right and the oil level is displayed. You can download the manual from the internet and the instructions can be found on page 88. Hope this helps.
The fuse box is located between the tach and the speedometer. under the cover above the dash . The main fuse is located under the left hand side cover in front of the battery.
make sure that the dimmer hasn't been turned all the way off. if that's ok, pull the guage assembly and replace the bad bulb.
it sure would work.. behind the dashboard are plugs for each function. one for tachometer, one for speedometer, fuel, water temp. ect.. if your new dash doesn't have a tachometer it will not interfere with the speedomet aspect of it. but you will not have a tach obviously. that sucks kid
If it is an electric speedo it probably is the speed sensor and if it is a manal speedo it is the cable.
