If the speedo stops also, it is the speed sensor. If just the odometer, take it to a speedo shop.
If the speedo works and not the odometer, take it to the speedo shop as something is wrong in the speedo itself. You can't stop the odometer without stopping the speedo.
The gauge has failed.
Replace the speedo head assembly. It is a sealed unit, with no servicable parts. If the speedometer is working, then the cable and the speedo drive gears are working. The failure must be inside of the speedo head assembly itself.
The logical problem - would be a broken speedo cable. The speedo & odometer are both run from the same cable.
If the speedo il ok but the odometer doesn't work, take it to a speedo shop as the problem is in the speedo.
If only the odometer is not functional, then the cluster is bad. If both odo and speedo are inop then you have a possible speed sensor issue.
There is no such thing as an "odometer sensor." There is a vehicle speed sensor that is located on the output shaft housing of the transmission. That sends info to the speedometer. From there, the speedometer and the odometer are both operated internally, so if your speedo is working, but the odometer isn't, you have a problem inside the speedo head assembly.
Hey Tony==Either manual or electric spedo if this happens the problem in in the speedo and needs to go to the speedo shop. GoodluckJoe
If the speedo works and the odometer doesn't, it neeeds to go to the speedo shop as the problem is inside the spedo. GoodluckJoe
The odometer unit has failed and will need replaced.
Disconnecting the speed sensor stops the speedo and odometer. The odometer has to be changed by a certified speedo repair shop.
The speedo or the speedo cable might be broken and, or be dissconncted.
The problem is inside the speedo and has to go to a speedo shop to be repaired.
If the speedo works, but the odometer doesn't . The cluster needs replaced.
TAke it to a speedo shop as something is wrong in the speedo itself.
In the instrument cluster, usually at the bottom half of the speedo.
Its a little cog in the speedo. You need experts to fix, about $180.
There are two possible actions: 1) Replace the speedometer head assembly, because that is where your problem is. 2) Ignore the broken odometer and forget about it. The speedometer and odometer are one assembly. The same input that drives the speedo also drives the odometer, so you have a problem in the head itself.
The odometer runs on the same electronic gear driven sensor as the speedometer so if the speedometer is working and the odometer is not the problem is in the "Speed head" (speedometer unit in the dash). Mine and several others I have seen break at about 40,000 and will need replacing.
You don't. There is no such thing as an odometer or a speedometer cable on that vehicle. The speedometer is electrically operated using a signal from the vehicle speed sensor. The odometer is driven by a little electric motor in the speedometer head assembly. If the speedo is working, but the odo isn't, you need a speedometer head assembly. If both are inop, you COULD need a speedo head, but there could also be a problem elsewhere in the system.
First of all, it is illegal to do so. Secondly, the only way is to disconect the speedo sender, which obviously also stops the speedo so you wont know how fast you are travelling, but that will stop the odometer.
yes by the same amout it throws off your speedo
my 89 astro's dashboard is not working, speedo is 0 cruise control doesnt work, odometer says error, whats up, help please. firstname.lastname@example.org
the problem is likely in the guage cluster itself because you are getting a good signal from the senser to make the speedo work
