What else other than a speed sensor would make the speed odometer not work on a 99 Oldsmobile intrigue 3.8 and has no odometer cable on it?

The gauge itself may be dead. I have seen one dead speedometer in a dash in 30 years, and that one was the old mechanical kind.

It is called a Throttle Position Sensor (TPS), and is located on the throttle body butterfly cross shaft opposite the throttle cable cam.

You don't as it does not have a cable. You replace the speed sensor instead.

A 1996 Chrysler Town and Country does not have a speedometer or odometer cable. That signal comes from the transmission output speed sensor.

There is no such thing. The odometer is electrically driven from the PCM via the vehicle speed sensor. If the odometer has failed you need to replace the cluster.

There is no odometer cable. The odometer is controlled electronically via the vehicle speed sensor reading. The PCM converts this into an electrical signal and sends the signal to a drive motor located right behind your cluster face.

There is not an odometer cable. The odometer is driven by the speedometer. If the odometer is not working then you will have to replace the speedometer head.

There is no odometer/speedometer cable in that vehicle. The odometer/speedometer is electronic.

The odometer is electric, no cable.

Have your mechanic check the speedometer cable connections. They no longer use a cable. It is electronic. If the speedometer is not working but the odometer is, the problem is in the dash cluster. If both the speedometer and odometer are not working, the speed sensor in the transmission may be at fault.

I believe that 1995 was the last year for a conventional speedometer cable on a Ford Explorer , and then Ford went to an electronic speedometer with a vehicle speed sensor

odometer cable and speedometer cable are the same thing, unscrew cable from speedometer head under the dash and unhook it from the tranny and pull the cable out and replace with a new one.

When those things on my 92 B250 did not work, I replaced the speed sensor located on the transmission tailshaft and that fixed the problems. Hope that helped! Mark When the speedometer and odometer did not work in my 1990 B250, I had to replace the speed sensor, instrument cluster (speedometer) and replace a tiny gear (odometer) in order to get them working properly

There isn't a "cable" like there used to be. The speedometer/odometer is controlled by an eletroic speed sensor. A wiring harness plugs into the back of the dash module containing the speedo.

There cable. It is electronically controlled.

connected to the back of the odometer and runs in to the transmission it pulls out

Most modern vehicles do not use a speedometer/odometer cable; it's all done by sensors.

Funny thing about saturns, they don't have an "odometer cable" They use a magnetic pickup assembly, located in the rear of the transmission, just above the passanger side axle output. this sensor is connected directly to the engine computer. from the computer the signal then goes to your instrument panel and is converted into electricity to drive a small motor to turn the digits which you can see. if the odometer has stopped working, replace the speed sensor on the transmission, or your instrument panel has failed.

More than likely, it sounds like your odometer cable has been disconnected or is failing. A new odometer cable can be picked up at any auto parts seller.

According to my Haynes repair manual, 1996 and later models do not use a conventional speedometer cable. They use an electronic speedometer and a vehicle speed sensor (VSS)

There is no odometer cable. The cluster is controled by the PCM and is fully electronic. www.trailvoy.com All the answers for your Trailblazer!

I don't believe there is one. I believe its run electronically. The odometer cable does exist, but it is connected to the transmission, not the engine.
