What might cause and how might you fix the speedometer on your 1992 4Runner which works sporadically and sometimes not at all?

I suspect that you have a bad contact on your speed sensor connector in your transmission. Check connector underneath the car on the driver side, if connector is clean you might need to replace the sensor ( electrical pulse generator ) that's where you plug in the connector...

It is possible that the speedometer on a 1997 Plymouth will only work intermittently because the gear is worn out. Sometimes dirt can get up into the area where the speedometer cable is housed and cause excessive wear to the gear.

There are several things that can cause your 2003 Mitsubishi Gallant speedometer not to work. The most common cause is a malfunctioning speedometer cable.

You may need to replace the speedometer fuse. The speedometer cable can cause your speedometer to stop working. The speed sensor can also cause the speedometer to stop working.

The size of tires can effect that accuracy of a speedometer. Larger tires will cause the speedometer to read less than you are actually going.

No, the wheel speed sensors monitor the wheel speed for the ABS and the TCS. The speed sensor mounted in the transmission monitors the vehicle speed for the speedometer/odometer and transmission controls.

Yes, tires that are larger or smaller in diameter than original factory size will cause a car's speedometer to be wrong.

If it's an electronic (analog) speedometer needle, you probably have a problem with the dasboard grounding.

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

The speedometer on a 1996 Honda Accord EX is the pulse variety. It is likely that the teeth on the speedometer gear are not meshing properly.

Bad wiring connection or internal wiring connection in the stereo

If the speedometer continues to work - probably a broken gear etc. in speedometer head and probably will have to be replaced. If speedometer does not work -- probably a broken speedometer cable

If the grinding sound seems to be coming from the speedometer and grinds faster as your speed increases, the likely cause is the speedometer cable. At least some 1990 Dodge trucks (mine) have electric speedometers Len

There are a few reasons that could cause the speedometer to stop working on your Toyota Camry. If the mileage is still working then the speedometer cable end is damaged. If both the odometer and speedometer do not work then the cable is most likely broken.

If it's a cable speedometer, it's probably a worn cable. If it's electronic, it's probably internal damage or wear.

Check VSS(vehicle speed sensor)on tranny,the most common problem of speedometer errs,providing your vehicle is equipped with a speedometer cable.Also,VSS,will cause erratic speedometer reads. - Big Daddy

It is possible for a speedometer to go on and off on a 1995 Honda Accord because the parts are worn out. A new speedometer mechanism may be necessary. Also, check to see if there are any loose parts. Rain and debris from a roadway can cause damage to the speedometer cable.
