the first thing you can always do is check your fuses. there might a blown fuse that need replacement. otherwise you need to be familiar with the electrical wiring on your car. if not then the best thing would be to get it checked by a mechanic. you can always call the subaru dealer and ask for the mechanic and ask for wiring diagram or for him/her to pinpoint the wire connection of the speedometer with power source.

chances are its the speed sensor mine just went on my 98 impressa

the cable going from the speedometer to the transmission needs to be swaped.

How do you reset the auto locks on a 1998 Subaru. Disconnected the battery to clean terminals. Now the auto lock does not work from the door switches

Yes, it does. The 2000 S70 uses the same exact speedometer as it did in it's previous years.

why would a speedometer and odometer not work on a suzuki motorcycle?

User Avatar

If the speedometer and odometer are both not working, I would blame the speed sensor. If only the speedometer does not work and the odometer does work, the cluster is bad.

Your speedometer may have failed, or the speedometer cable that connects to the transmission, or the plastic gear in the transmission may be broken.

The question is, does it still work... it may have spat the dummy, or may just be lower than you've risked running it.

There are several things that can cause your 2003 Mitsubishi Gallant speedometer not to work. The most common cause is a malfunctioning speedometer cable.

User Avatar

Your speedometer might not be connected if it does not work. It might also have blown a fuse if it is an electronic speedometer or it could have a wire that is loose.

User Avatar

The speedometer sensor is probably bad.

first check your brake light switch... its located on the brake pedal one wire should power on it all the time and the other wire only when the pedal is pressed... if power doesn't go thur then replace switch

The gears in the speedometer are stripped. If the odometer is working then you have input.

There are many temperature sensors on your Subaru. You will also need to be specific as to the equipment your car has. If you are planning on doing any work on your Outback I highly recommend purchasing the service manuals. eBay sellers have them in electronic format for not a lot of money.
