Cruise will NOT work if the speedometer has a problem
The speedometer sensor relates back to or through the ECM and to the cluster in digital or analog out put.
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.
what causes the speedometer not to work
There may be several reasons whey the digital speedometer might not work. The first is that the LED light may have burned out. The second is that the fuse may have gone out. It also might have a bad speedometer cable.
Is the TCM working normally and throwing no codes?
If the digital dash lights up but shows no numbers for the speedometer on a 1989 Thunderbird LX, it is possible that a fuse is blown for the speedometer and the fuel gauge. There is more than one light in the dash for the speedometer.
The odometer has failed
The basic idea on how a digital speedometer works is that the equipment senses how fast the wheels are spinning. This information about wheel spinning rate can be obtained by using optical sensor on the drive shaft. It then correlates the data in its processor which then displays it on the LCD/LED dashboard.
This is an electrical problem that happens with a lot of Caprice classics with digital spedometers. My speedometer works about 1 day out of the month and the will cut off the other 30 days.
digital cluster may need replaced
If the speedometer doesn't work at all then there could be two causes. The first thing is to check the needle it may be loose on the spindle, secondly there is a relay from the fuse box to the speedometer.
The speedometer needs to work in a vehicle for safety and informative reasons. The causes of it intermittently working could be the lack of electricity, or a problem with the sensor.Ê

why would a speedometer and odometer not work on a suzuki motorcycle?
Possibly a bad vehicle speed sensor (VSS). This sensor is usually located in the side of the transmission.
There are several things that can cause your 2003 Mitsubishi Gallant speedometer not to work. The most common cause is a malfunctioning speedometer cable.
probably need to replace the speedometer cable. if turbo check the big one that goes along the firewall possibly got burnt up on the down pipe
If it's cable driven, you probably need to replace the cable. Otherwise, if it's digital impulse driven, it's probably the speedometer itself.
Possible reasons your speedometer not working: 1. The vehicle speed sensor has failed. 2. The speedometer itself has failed. 3. There is a failure in the wiring or connectors. 4. The engine control module has failed. I don't know what you mean by "fuel mix", please clarify.
Why doesnt your speedometer work on a 02 Mits Galant
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.
The speedometer sensor is probably bad.
Could be in the trany sensor/gear or the speedo itself
