There are resistors on the back of the PCB that come loose. New resistors and some solder should fix the problem. what is the PCB and its location.

The odometer on a 96 Ford Explorer is tied into the speedometer. If the speedometer is working then there is a gear problem inside of the speedometer causing the odometer to not work.

Maybe a broken cable The needle on the speedometer of the 96 aspire is still moving, but it acts like it is out of control.

The speedometer sensor is probably bad.

There is no speedometer cable on that vehicle. The speedometer is driven electronically.

Unhook both sides of battery and wait 1 minute, this will reset reset the computer to default.

I pretty sure it doesn't have a speedometer cable, it is electronic.

check your fusible link, its connected to your positive battery cable,check for burnt marks or it might be swollen.

check the fuses. Same thing with my 96 corsica, along with a few other instruments.

Type your answer here... air bag sensor light on? I had one in a 96 in the column, went to local wreaker and changed the column. Works now

I believe that 1995 was the last year for a conventional speedometer cable on a Ford Explorer , and then Ford went to an electronic speedometer with a vehicle speed sensor

Speedometer is an integrated part of the instrument panel. If you have problems with the speedometer, check first the peed sensor. My 96 Sentra have problems with the speedometer. I replaced the speed sensor and instrument panel and still the dial stops intermittently, this turns-on the check engine light. For me, the next step is to check the wiring.

Check the coolant in the 96 Taurus. Check to insure that the thermostat is working properly, and that the water pump is working.

It means that you vehicle speed sensor on the transmission is bad and needs replaced. The speedometer is controled by the computer even though it is a needle and not digital readout. The odometer however is controled by a cable (engineers sheesh). The sensor is located on the top of the transmission back by the firewall good luck getting in there the manual says to remove the exaust manafold.

I am having the same problem. I know for sure there is one on the transmission but according to my mechanic there is another in the instrument cluster at the speedometer. Can seem to find any info on the speedometer sensor.

The purpose is to run the speedometer, and it is on the tailshaft of the transmission/transfer case.

Different size tires and wheels. The factory size tires and wheels are calibrated with the speedometer. If a different sized tires or wheels are put on the vehicle, the speed can be off.

We need to know which gauge stopped working.

often times a rough idle can occur, in addition the speedometer and cruise control will not work.
