a good shop should be able to repair it, but it may be the electrical system...check all the fuses, and also read up on the sensor and gauge in a SHOP manual available at the local library...make copies as their reference it may be the gauge sender in the transmission...or an RPM sensor on the motor...depending on which system nissans using for you model...good luck.......

If I replaced the vehicle speed sensor on my 1996 maxima SE 3.0L V6 and my speedometer still doesn't work and when i hook up my OBD2 it still reads code P0500 vehicle speed sensor can anyone help?

Either the wire from the VSS to the speedometer is bad or your speedometer is bad. A common problem with this vintage of Maximas is for the speedometer head unit to go bad. The VSS sends the signal to the speedometer and the speedometer relays it to the computer - therefore, if the speedometer is bad, you would get a P0500 code. On my car, the speedometer displayed the correct speed but replacing it fixed the CEL. The speedometer costs around $200 (not including labor) and you will have to drop another $25 to get it set to the correct mileage. The replacement can be done by a competent home mechanic in 2 hours. Expect to spend several hundred dollars on labor at the dealer.

The speedometer stoped working on a 1993 300ZX how can it be fixed?

You should have a sensor close to your shifter about the size of small pack of cigarettes. It's directly linked to your spedometer...

Why do brake lights stay on 1986 300zx when car is on or off?

Brake Bumper button is broke , or stuck ... it's the little button under the pedal to the connector to the electrical system ; it's needs to be replaced or it will drain your battery. What I did until I got it fixed was either 1)pull the fuse to the brakes , or 2) just disconnect the battery. I just did 2 in the past week ! I own a 1982 Datsun 280 zx , and a 1987 Nissan 300zx. .

Why is your odometer not working but your speedometer is?

The odometer is separate from the speedometer. The odometer counts how many miles you have driven total, while the speedometer shows how many miles you will travel in an hour if you maintain a given speed. You should immediately take you vehicle to a qualified service technician, and get the odometer fixed.

How do you diagnose and fix the speedometer that only works intermittently on a 1996 Nissan truck?

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!
