What is the problem with a 99 Ford Windstar if the interior lights flicker on and off and the odometer speedometer powerlocks etc have ceased to work?

You may have 2 separate problems working here:

  • False door ajar warnings
  • A leaking brake pressure switch.
Both issues are well covered in the "Related Questions" below

Start with the vehicle speed sensor the feeds the speedometer and odometer.Also look at the Brake/Speedometer problem associated with the Windstar recall for a leaking brake pressure switch

My speedometer works and the odometer does not because there is a plastic gear in the odometer that is broken.

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

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.

See if fuse #10 in the interior fuse box is blown. If this is the case you should also be having trouble with your odometer will have dashes in it instead of numbers and your ABS light will be on. sesackett@earthlink.net

why would a speedometer and odometer not work on a suzuki motorcycle?

If the speedometer works, but the odometer is not working, there could be a fuse blown if the odometer is digital. If the odometer is not digital, then a gear is broken in the speedometer cable. It should be replaced.

A speedometer tells you how fast you are travelling but an odometer tells you how far you have travelled.

The odometer on a 96 Ford Explorer is tied into the speedometer. If the speedometer is working then there is a gear problem inside of the speedometer causing the odometer to not work.

User Avatar

if your speedometer and or odometer isn't working correctly under your motor is a wire clip for you speedometer and odometer jus replace the clip

Speedometer is ran by electronic sensor on rear end. Odometer is ran from speedometer. If both don't work problem is sensor. If speedometer works sensor is okay. If speedometer works and odometer does not problem is in mechanical parts (gears) of of odometer and has to be replaced. Can get used from eBay (search for speedometer or odometer, is one unit) or take to dealer.

If the speedometer works but the odometer does not, the odometer has failed.

User Avatar

If the interior lights and overdrive are also not working then is a fuse. Look in the owners manual to see which fuse.

User Avatar

The gears in the speedometer are stripped. If the odometer is working then you have input.

User Avatar

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.

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.

User Avatar

They both work off of the same signal. If the speedometer works but the odometer doesn't, the odometer has failed.

User Avatar

If the speedometer breaks, it effects the odometer. Check the speedometer cable it may be broken, even under the insulation.

User Avatar

If the odometer stopped working and the speedometer and cruise control still work, you have a bad odometer. It is part of the speedometer assembly so the whole thing will have to be replaced.

User Avatar

Does your odometer work? If the speed sensor goes faulty both speedometer and odometer stop working.

User Avatar

Another name for an Odometer is a Speedometer, situated right in front of the drivers eyes in the instrument panel./////the speedometer tells you the speed of the vehicle as the odometer tells you the distance the car has traveled the odometer is normally mounted in the spedeometer

User Avatar

Both the odometer and speedometer are scalar because a vector measurement needs a magnitude and direction. If you, for example, combined a compass and a odometer/speedometer, you'd have a vector.

User Avatar

If the speedometer is not working but the odometer is, I would suspect the dash cluster is at fault. If both speedometer and odometer are not working I would suspect the speed sensor on the transmission is at fault.
