well one of the problems might be the speed-do cable either being old or needs to be tighten.

Possibly your speed sensor. My speedometer would bounce around & then soon after it felt like my transmission was slipping. Turns out the speed sensor controls the upshift in your transmission.

Instantaneous speed is the velocity of an object at a certain time. For example:- Suppose you are driving in a car and the speedometer constantly varies; this is because the speedometer gives speed at a particular moment of time.

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 transmission computer takes the output speed sensor signal and sends it to the cluster for the speedometer reading. The output speed sensor is a likely cause.The transmission computer takes the output speed sensor signal and sends it to the cluster for the speedometer reading.

A car has a speedometer. When you read the speed that it indicates, and you know the direction in which you're driving, then you know the car's velocity.

Example sentence - You must pay attention to the speedometer on your vehicle while driving to ensure you obey the posted speed limits.

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.

It does not have a speedometer gear. The speedometer is electronic and gets its signal from the ABS and transmission computers from the wheel speed and transmission speed sensors.It does not have a speedometer gear.

no. a SPEEDometer measures SPEED. not velocity: direction

The speedometer of an aircraft measures air speed - that is, is measures the speed of the air going past the aircraft. Airspeed is measure in KIAS - Knots-Indicated Airspeed. There is a method of converting KIAS to true airspeed and ground speed, but, on the subject of ground speed, this is usually done simply by using GPS and LORAN equipment on board, or readings from ground radar units.

your speed sensor is failing, the speed sensor is located next to your oil filter it controls your speedometer

The speedometer in a car runs based off the speed of the transmission. The gears in the transmission spin at a known rate for the speed the vehicle is traveling at. The faster the gears spin the more the speedometer goes up. If a person replaces stock tires with larger tires, then the tires will spin slower, which will cause the speedometer to read at a value that is less than the actual speed.

In a car, the speedometer measured Instantaneous speed. This comes from the assumption that the car does not slow down and speed up fast enough for the speedometer to be able to give an average of the changing speed.
