The speedometer cable on a 1987 Mazda 323 is located on top of the transmission and travels up to the dashboard. It helps the vehicle's computer monitor speeds constantly.

It doesn't have a speedometer cable. The speedometer is operated electronically.

There are several things you can do to repair your speedometer. You can replace the speedometer cable. You can replace the speed sensor in the transmission.

I've replaced the speedometer Cable on my 87 Supra with manual Tranny and they're in two pieces the short piece which around 14" is underneath beside the transmission and could be replaced individually.

you have to take the dash apart...that is the speedometer assembly. once you start to take the cluster off, the speedometer cable is snapped onto the speedometer. you take that apart and the cable will pull out. be sure to put your bolts that you pull out of the dash in order so you do not confuse where they go...plastic strips easily.

It is located in the boot, under the spare tyre

The 1987 Chevy Celebrity uses an electronic speedometer, there is no speedometer cable. Assuming your speedometer has failed here are some possible causes: The VSS. vehicle speed sensor, may have failed. The speedometer may have failed. The ECM, engine control module aka computer, may have failed. There may be wiring issues such as unplugged, dirty connections, broken wires, etc.

The speedo cable on an 87, usually is an electrical hook up, in which case is run by wires, to an output on the tail shaft of the transmission. Mine on the other hand is cable, because I changed it, therefore the cable hooks up the back of the gauge cluster.

one end is going to be of course besind the spedo gauge in your cluster and the other end will be ithe in you transaxle orif you have cruise control it will be at the cruise control transducer.

Its Located Rite Behind The Engine. STUPID!!!!

probably need to replace the speedometer cable. if turbo check the big one that goes along the firewall possibly got burnt up on the down pipe

The chirping is probably the Speedometer cable. Unless it a manual tranny, than it could be a throw out bearing. If the chirping get faster with your speed it's the speedo cable.

Either the cable dry or something is wrong in the head. Take the cable out first and lube it and see if that fixes it.

where the engine number is located it will have FE for 2000 and F2 for 2200

I would remove the speedometer cable end out of the tranmission mounted on the left hand side and clean with brake cleaner then put some white lithium grease (sold at napa in a small container) or use wheel bearing grease as a substitute will work.Then reinstall.I may recommend pulling the main part of the dash out has 4 screws that hold it in two on top and two on the bottom and remove the cable where it attaches to the speedometer and grease it.These old analog gauges will freeze up due to lack of lubrication over time or the needles will jump,drag,or not move.I seriously doubt the cable is broken but,if it is advance auto or auto zone can get it or maybe a local shop that does speedometer calibriations.Start simple clean and grease the cable ends and worst case u do the above and gauge still does not work,you would need a new speedometer(not likely with the old bseries).Time to do this about 30 minutes and note just wipe old grease out on the cable end going to speedometer itself and put some new grease in it(brake cleaner will mess up plastic around the area)Piece of cake.

should be about halfway back on the left side of the tranny unless the tranny is not a cable mount. some of the trannys were electric, but the connection would be in the same place on the tail shaft of the tranny on the driver side.

Probably at the rear lower end of engine--follow the + battery cable

There is no speedo cable on a 96, GM quit using them in 1987. You have a speed sensor, which is located on the top rear of the transmission. It will have a couple wires coming off it in a plug, that run thru the computer, then to the speedo. If your speedo has quit working, has it also set a check engine light? If so, I would recomend replacing the speedo sensor.

If you look on the driver side back by the break pedle you will see the fuse panel

Was wondering the same.. for a Fuel injected 1987 Mazda 626 non-Turbo According to a Mazda dealer I just called. There is no reset switch. The Fuel pump is located in the gas tank. and the Pump Relay is on the firewall of the passenger side. Regards, Yanek What do you want to reset? "Check Engine" codes can be reset by disconnecting the battery for 5-10 minutes.

The transmission uses a cable for linkage. If the car has consol shift the cable runs from the shifter to the transaxle. If it is a column shift the cable runs from a lever on the column to the transaxle.

Yes a 1987 dodge ram has an e-brake cable

My 1987 740gle speedo quit working. I checked the transmission for the sending unit/cable and found nothing. I found out this car uses an electric unit. It is located on the rear axle. It has a plug with 2 wires located on the differential cover. check it out, I'll guess you have a wire broken or maybe it just simply came unplugged.

The lighting system of all 80's fords speedometer is an independent circuit of the speedometer itself. When there is no display, one of 2 things could happen: 1-.The power line of the speedometer is damaged. Normally they have a kind of ribbon cable with cooper bands connecting between the panel, the 12V source and the sensor. Please check the ribbon cable if it doesn't have any gap in the cooper lines. 2.-Perhaps the 12V speedometer's internal regulator is damaged, you have to check if it is replaceable, if it isn
