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.

Your speedometer on your 1995 Dodge caravan stopped working how do you find the cable to replace it?

There is no speedometer cable on a 1995 caravan. it is done by a speed sensor on the transmission and digtal data is sent to the computer and the computer then sends the signal to the speedometer. This is the case even when the speedometer looks analog. Likely a bad speedometer is the cause if it does not move as the speed sensor is used for other functions and would trip the "check engine" light if it was bad. the speedometer is part of the instrument cluster and likely you would need to change the whole thing.

1996 sunfire 2 2 Liter Speedometer has stopped working but will kick on now and then When it's working the Check Engine indicator lights up and sometimes the engine will sputter Any ideas?

Might be the speed sensor. We figured out the problem with the speedometer not working. it turns out the brainiacs at General Motors installed the computer without protecting it from the elements. The computer was corroded along with the wires. Luckily the computer was covered under a recall that was on sunfires...and I had to pursuade GM to pay for the wires to be replaced as well... Hopefullly this helps someone who might be in the same boat


How do you diagnose and fix the speedometer that only works intermittently on a 1996 Nissan truck?

Hi There, On my 1995 Nissan Pick-up, The speedometer as well as the tachometer would intermittenly stop working. Sometimes one would work then the other would stop working, sometimes both stopped working at the same time. I never knew when it would happen. Then, at 90,000 miles, the Check Engine light came on and everything worked GREAT. It turns out that the wire that sets off the Check Engine light was shroting out causing the problems. It was fixed today for a cost of $160.65. It worked for me, I hope that it works for you. Good Luck!
