Why would a speedometer only start to register after getting up to 45mph?

Hey Stormmin===It depends on what kind of car and what year. If it is an electric speedo, it can be the speed sensor or in the head. If it is a manual it is in the head. GoodluckJoe

Actually , it doesn't have a conventional speedometer cable , it has an electronic speedometer and a vehicle speed sensor ( VSS ) according to my Haynes repair manual

Start with the vehicle speed sensor the feeds the speedometer and odometer.Also look at the Brake/Speedometer problem associated with the Windstar recall for a leaking brake pressure switch
