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.

the speedometer on my 97 toyota camary stopped working and the check engine light came on why

There are pages and pages of things that can cause a check engine light. You need to have it checked with a scantool. Then the code can be diagnosed and repaired.

wipers,headlights,speedometer,door locks,air conditioner,electric mirrors, stopped working

If the speedometer breaks, it effects the odometer. Check the speedometer cable it may be broken, even under the insulation.

If the speedometer stopped working on a 1990 Cadillac Seville, it could be the fuse or an electrical problem. First check the fuse and if the fuse is good, check with a mechanic.

check your speedometer sensor located back left of engine bay on top of the transmission

The check engine light only comes on for something that affects emissions

I once had the same problem in my 89 Sunbird turbo. The computer "ECM" went bad and the speedo stopped working. I would see what ECM codes you have causing the check engine light and go from there.

Something in the speedo circuit has possibly failed and the computer set a code for it.. Have it checked for codes.

You need to have it checked for codes to know what to diagnose.

there is a speed sensor on your transmission, probably about 15 bucks, and easy to replace, try there, but first check your fuses.

maybe your speed sensor is bad you will get a check engine light on the dashboard too.

If it's an analog speedometer, first check the condition of the speedometer cable. It may need to be replaced.

Left and right stopped working? Check the fuse and/or the flasher relay. Only the left or the right stopped working? Check the bulbs.

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.

for the check engine light go to autozone and they will diagnose your engine for free as for the speedometer you will proobably have to replace the speed sensor

If you turn on the ignition without starting the engine and the Check Engine light does not come on, the bulb has burnt our or has been removed. Replace the bulb.

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

If the Park Ave is a year that uses a speedometer cable, check that the drive gear for the cable is working. Check the cable to insure that it is not broken of stuck, then check the speedometer itself. These steps will let you know what is broken so that you can fix it.

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

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!
