The main reason that a speedometer and odometer will stop is because the speed sensor, located on the back top area of the transmission, has gone faulty. The part can be had very easily at any auto parts store, or junkyard. The reason the check engine light is on is because the speed sensor signal goes thru the ECM (computer) for the car to run the different things. If the signal is intermitent, or interupted, the light is set, as well as the speedo and odometer not working.
Another reason is that the ECM it's self is bad, you can locate the ECM behind the glovebox and give it a few knocks while the car is running, if your engine responds by cutting out (even just a little) then replace it. they are around $110.
Since there is no speedo cable, it must be an electrical issue with a sensor.
Why is there no speedometer cable? Does it have digital gauges?
The reason I ask, is, when I first got my 1986 Celebrity, the speedometer and odometer did not work. The previous owner had bought a new speed sensor, but had not had it put in yet. I installed it first thing. no luck. In checking the speedometer cable, I found it was broken, (the end of the cable at the tans-axle). After I replaced the speedometer cable, it worked fine.
Now, I cannot imaging gm did away with speedometer cables in the two years before the 1988 came out. I do have a 1990 S-15 with digital gauges, and I know it does not have a speedometer cable. But, the 1990 Sunbird I used to own, with analog gauges, did have one.
you can go to speedometer and out of speedometer
If the speedometer breaks, it effects the odometer. Check the speedometer cable it may be broken, even under the insulation.
If the odometer stopped working and the speedometer and cruise control still work, you have a bad odometer. It is part of the speedometer assembly so the whole thing will have to be replaced.
check the fuse, the speedometer does not run off of a fuse
In my personal experience the speedometer stopped working because the mechanical drive cable broke.
The gauge has failed.
If both the speedometer and odometer stopped working it is probably the speed sensor in the transmission gone bad. If only the speedometer quit you may have to replace the dash cluster with a reconditioned unit.
The speedometer and odometer may stop working in a Nissan Pathfinder due to an electrical short. It may also need a new spark plug.
the speedometer on my 97 toyota camary stopped working and the check engine light came on why
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.
if your speedometer and or odometer isn't working correctly under your motor is a wire clip for you speedometer and odometer jus replace the clip
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.
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.
If your odometer/speedometer stopped working, then you must replace the "vehicle speed sensor" located on top of the differential if your have a manual transmission.
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.
Is this a statement or a question
If the speedometer is not working but the odometer is, I would suspect the dash cluster is at fault. If both speedometer and odometer are not working I would suspect the speed sensor on the transmission is at fault.
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.
The gears in the speedometer are stripped. If the odometer is working then you have input.
My odometer stopped working about a month ago.
If the speedometer and odometer are both not working, I would blame the speed sensor. If only the speedometer does not work and the odometer does work, the cluster is bad.
Does your odometer work? If the speed sensor goes faulty both speedometer and odometer stop working.
They both work off of the same signal. If the speedometer works but the odometer doesn't, the odometer has failed.
If your speedometer has stopped working just put the key in the off position and hold down the trip odometer button until you see some codes come on the odometer. That should reset your speedometer. I could not figure out which fuse was for the speedometer and some one told me about this and it worked right away.
The odometer is separate from the speedometer. The odometer counts how many miles you have driven total, while the speedometer shows how many miles you will travel in an hour if you maintain a given speed. You should immediately take you vehicle to a qualified service technician, and get the odometer fixed.
