The speedometer needle broke and immediately after the service engine light came on are they related or could there be another problem?

Older Fords speedometers breaking seems to be a common problem. If it works slightly and waivers alot (what I've seen) I would say the 2 are not connected. Otherwise I'm not sure

Had the same problem off and on in my 1999 Taurus. The speedometer needs to be replaced. The problem is in the speedometer and not the transmission like I was initially led to believe. My mechanic said it wasn't that big of a repair.Coincidentally, the vehicle speed sensor feeds information to both the speedometer and the transmission....See "Related Questions" below for more

according to the owners manual this could be related to a problem with the ABS. I have the same problem and am looking for a diy solution. also from the owners manual the ABS controls the transmission , and my transmission is shifting roughly, which is what I noticed before I noticed that the speedometer wasn't working.

Check the "Related Questions" below to see if your problem is related to a leaking brake pressure switch - causing a range of problem, including the #10 fuse blowing.

I would contact a doctor immediately. The problem could be related to a gynacological or digestive problem. See a doctor!

Take it to Autozone and have it read the codes if it is OBD2 (1996 and newer) if not to see if the check engine light is related to the speedometer problem disconnect the negative battery cable and hold the brake down for about a minute. This should turn the check engine light off. If it does drive it to see if the speedometer works. If it does they are related somehow, if it still doesn't then it must be two separate problems.

Anytime I see the speedometer and AC mentioned, I think of the very common problem with the #10 fuse blowing (which covers both of these) and a leaking brake pressure switch.See "Related Questions" below for more

The 2002 VW Jetta speedometer fuse will be the number 14 fuse. The number 14 fuse will be in the second column, fourth from the top.

Transmission problem. Yes it is related to the speedometer not working. VSS sensor may be bad. Have the transmission computer scanned. I had a flshing s light for a long time, while my spedometer worked fine, the car had trouble starting. I replaced the main relay under the dash and haven't had a prob since. I had the same problem with my 91 accord Ex...it turned out to be the alternator. The "S" light was malfunctioning along with the speedometer and Tach. While the light stayed on, the tach and speedo where intermittent problems.

The speedometer is driven by the vehicle speed sensor. See "Related Questions" below for more about where to find it, and how to replace one.

If the grinding sound seems to be coming from the speedometer and grinds faster as your speed increases, the likely cause is the speedometer cable. At least some 1990 Dodge trucks (mine) have electric speedometers Len

The answer depends on what the problem is.

Yes, they can be both separate or related.

There is one circumstance that involves a fuse for BOTH speedometer and heater - a blown #10 fuse.This is also a very common symptom of a known defect on the Windstar involving a leaking brake sensor.See "Related Questions" and "Related Links" below
