Either a problem in the circuit or a faulty vehicle speed sensor.

Cummins is good. Dodge is not. Cummins has always been a good engine. Dodge is lucky to have the contract with Cummins. I have 2 Dodge Cummins (an 1992 and 2006). Both have electrical problems and the transmission in my 2006 isn't great and that's with stock power and only 93,000 miles. The 12-valve Cummins is all mechanical- easy and cheap to get power out of it. The 24-valve Cummins is computerized- have to buy a programmer. The best combination would be a Cummins in a Chevy.

there isn't one- equipped with an electric speedometer

The speedometer, tachometer, and fuel gauge will not be working on a 1992 Jeep Cherokee if the fuse has been blown. Alternatively, the wiring can become disconnected.

The speedometer on a 1992 Jeep Cherokee may stop working if the cable is loose or the gauge is damaged. Re-seating and tightening all connections can help resolve this issue.

Either the Speedometer itself is bad or the speedometer cable is. either one isn't too difficult if you have pulled a dashboard out before.

It is reverse threaded. You go clockwise to loosen.

take the front clips out so you can take the front finders off

It can be done, yes. You just have to make sure you wire them in parallel.

Most common would be speedometer cable has broken Remove speedometer head and move vehicle to see if cable moves- if not probably broken - if it does probably problem with speedometer head

there is a speed sensor on the side of the trans, where the cable used to be. unplug the wires and replace the speed sensor. pretty simple to do.

speedometer cable is gummed up inside the housing.Remove cable from speedometer.Pull out inner cable. Lubricate with good grease and install.

The speedometer and odometer may stop working in a Nissan Pathfinder due to an electrical short. It may also need a new spark plug.

a 1992 Volvo 940 doesn't have a speedometer cable. the speedometer is controlled electronically.

They both work off of the same signal. If the speedometer works but the odometer doesn't, the odometer has failed.

You have a bad Vss Sensor.............. The vehicle speed sensor.

If a 1992 Honda Civic's speedometer is erratic, the problem could be the speedometer cable. It could also be the speedometer sensor malfunctioning. Check both components carefully.

Most likely because your speedometer cable is broken. If I find the guide for removing the instrument cluster, I'll post it here.

if the speedo is also not working it could be a vss problem or an issue with the gear or square shaft where speedometer hooks to tranny/ if speedo works just no overdrive there is a temp sensor on the tranny that can keep od from working or may be wiring issue with factory od on/off switch

That's a double negative. I would suggest that the cable has broken. all 1992 and newer dnt have a cable it is ran electronicly

bd power makes one here is the site http://www.dieselperformance.com/index.php/product/index/47P

I used to have a 1993 Ford Crown Vic PI and my speedometer didn't work either. My mechanic said its connected to the transmission; the wirng must be either broken or not connected. Ask a mechanic if this is the problem.

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.

speedometer--vehicle speed sensor is in trans near pass side axle
