Not sure what kind/year of car you have. The odometer and speedometer are both driven by the same cable. The cable goes forward from the back of the speedometer, throught the fire wall and down to the transmission. You should be able to see where the cable protrudes through the firewall. Some cars use an electrical transducer instead of a cable. The transducer is mounted in the transaxel, has an electrical cable and connector going to it, probably two wires. The speedometer on this system is electronic and receives an electrical signal from the transducer. There is nothing different looking about the speedometer to immediatly indicate which system you have. Good Luck

The odometer is electric, no cable.

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

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.

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.

There is no cable as in conventional mechanical odometers, instead the odometer in your Volvo is electronic, sensing pulses from a sender located on top of the rear differential.

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.

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.

There cable. It is electronically controlled.

User Avatar

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

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.

The odometer located in the dash display is a sealed unit (to prevent mileage tampering) and can only be replaced - not repaired. ALSO: Are you sure it is stuck? Perhaps the cable leading to the odometer has broken or come detached from the transmission housing or from where it screws into the back of the odometer itself.

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!

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

If it is like my 94, there is no cable, it is electronic. Run1

follow the cable from fire wall to transmission.

If the odometer has failed, does the speedometer still work? They are both driven by a cable which spins. If the speedometer is still working, than the odometer has jammed. Probably a dealer fix.

There is a cable which runs from your front axle to the odometer/speedometer. Inside this cable is a gear box. As the front axle spin it transfers how fast your axle is spinning to your speedometer. This also spins your odometer. Something is either worn out in the cable, gearbox, or one of the ends of the cable has become disconnected. It's a very inexpensive fix.

User Avatar

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

User Avatar

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.

User Avatar

The logical problem - would be a broken speedo cable. The speedo & odometer are both run from the same cable.

User Avatar

you can't. there is no cable. it's all electronic. in future year helps
