If all three are not working then it is a pretty good bet the speed cable is either broken or has come off. The cable runs from the rear of the front left wheel to the back of the speedometer, it looks like a brake cable from a bike. speed sensor could be bad.

What causes the Odometer to stop working but the speedometer to continue working on a 1992 Crown Victoria LX 4.6L and what actions can be taken to repair this 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.

What causes an odometer not to work on a 1987 BMW 325is?

If the odometer is not working but the speedometer is still indicating speed, the most likely fault is a set of small plastic gears inside the speedometer instrument itself. I have seen these gears available for sale at various BMW parts specialists. Removing the dash cluster for access to the speedometer is not difficult in a 1987 E30 car. With the cluster on the bench, you can repair the speedometer gears or replace the whole thing. Used speedometers are plentiful at on-line auction sites such as eBay.

Why would your speedometer be going crazy and the odometer works fine Digital odometer but not speedometer?

Depends on your year, and likely the spedometer is reacting to a fault in the speed contoller, or fault with spedometer cable. What code(s) do you pull with testing? My 2000 E250 has an issue with the individual wheel speed sensor, causes abs light to come on and stay on, but no issues with spedometer, however if yours is newer (digital odometer, sounds newer), follow the cable from the spedometer to the speed controller, and it's bracket, check connections, or resistance in ohms. Try another question at the ford truck forum, once you know the codes. Good luck with it. Mac in DC

How do you fix a odometer on your 1995 Nissan 200 se-r?

This is based on my experience with a 1995 200 sx se. I assume they are similar. The se uses the 1.6 engine and the se-r the 2.0. engine. The odometer runs on the same electronic gear driven sensor as the speedometer so if the speedometer is working and the odometer is not the problem is in the "Speed head" (speedometer unit in the dash). Mine and several others I have seen break at about 40,000 and will need replacing but first; If neither are working try to set your Cruise control. If it "goes wild" with clicks etc. and does not work the problem is likely the speed sensor located on the transmission. Find it on top on the transmission rear the fire wall. One set screw hold a small retaining plate. Remove it and pull straight up. The nylon gear wears out and causes it to not contact the drive gear anymore.

What causes a speedometer to lose acceleration response but still eventually get to the correct speed?

A speedometer that loses response time but gets up to the speed of the vehicle probably has a problem with a gear slipping inside the speedometer mechanism. This sometimes happens in older vehicles. The speedometer cable may have to be replaced to fix this problem.
