If the speedo stops also, it is the speed sensor. If just the odometer, take it to a speedo shop.
If the speedometer doesn't work either, then the cable broke or came loose. Otherwise, the gears in the odometer broke.
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.
what can cause my speed odometer to stop working, it would work awhile, than stop, now not at all
The gears in the speedometer are stripped. If the odometer is working then you have input.
Bad bulbs can be the cause of your reverse lights not working on your 1999 Toyota Tacoma. A problem with the reverse switch or bad wires can also be the cause of your reverse lights not working.
Speed sensor While yes the speed sensor can cause the odometer to quit working the speedometer will quit at the same time. If you have the electronic cluster (the orange bar with the white behind it) there is a motor that runs the odometer and that can stop working. That cluster is designed to where you can replace just that unit, although I don't know where you'll be able to find a decent working one. -answered by Sye
you need to change the speedometer cause if your odometer is counting then speedometer should be working too. make sure your speed gear its working its in the side of the transmission The odometer and speedometer read off of the same signal. If one works, the signal is ok and the other gauge is bad.
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.
a short in you wiring harness
Check the fuse in the fuse box; Also check to see if your speedometer cable snapped, this will cause the odometer to stop working as well If your speedometer is still working and just the odometer has stopped, the most likely problem is a little plastic drive gear in the instrument cluster. This is the most common problem with many makes of cars. If you are handy you can buy a replacement gear on Ebay for a few dollars and replace it yourself. Otherwise take the vehicle to an instrument repair shop. This problem usually occurs if you reset your odometer while travelling, it breaks a tooth off the little gear.
sometimes it is working but after few seconds it is stopping
Our Vehicles have HORRIBLE Instrument Cluster Assemblies in them. Get it checked.
check the switch on the transmission. check the bulbs and the fuse.
if the cluster still lights up but the speedo still inop possible cause is the speed sensor in the transmition
Some posts seem to point to the battery as the cause of the problem. Get it checked as this is a low cost fix. Others seem to blame the speed sensor.
Many check engine lights are hooked to the odometer and come on every so many miles, otherwise you need to download fault codes. GET A MANUAL!
The odometer gets its signal from the speed sensor, so if the (tailshaft) speed sensor is bad then the odometer obviously will not work
A broken or disconnected ground wire can cause your odometer to freeze and your gas gauge to fluctuate up and down. A computer problem could cause the odometer to freeze but is very unlikely to cause the gas gauge to fluctuate.
93 Nissan 300ZX P. Steering/odometerThe odometer stopped but the speedometer still works? I have to belive these are two different problems. There just shouldn't be any connection between the two. Treat it as such. Look at the power steering first. Is the belt intact and tight? Fluid full? Digital readout on odometer or mechanical? If mechanical, and the speedometer still works, then it is just the odometer that's bad. Direct connection speedometer to odometer, with no connection to the power steering as far as I know, and no reason for there to be. Even if digital, the power steering is simply a pump and some hoses with no need for anything electrical. There is no reason for the two to be connected.
Working out won't cause fever blisters.
Many possible causes... coolant level, thermostat, head gasket, water pump, fan not working
static can cause the bcm to lock up.Disconnect the battery for a minute then reconnect.This should bring the items back on line. ~RicBNH~ www.ricbnh.com
i had this same problem, it was the headlight switch, cost about 30 bucks in a 2002. it also messed with the navigation system
my old Toyota pickup up would do the same thing, cut out going about 40 to 50 mph, but at about 20mph it would kick back on. It was one of the sensor chips. Toyota replaced the chip and the odometer, and I never had the problem again.
No, the '99 Toyota Camry has a non-interference engine, where the piston and valve path do not interfere with each other. The timing belt breaking will cause your car to stop working, but will not cause valve damage.
