Possibly a bad vehicle speed sensor (VSS). This sensor is usually located in the side of the transmission.

Chrysler 1998 town and country speedometer and tachometer stopped working all of a sudden. Electronic odometer still works. Any thoughts?

- I have a 2002 Caravan with the similar symptoms - speedometer stopped working but tripometer and odometer still work. The speedometer needle is wrapped all the way around past the top speed and resting on the bottom of the needle resting peg. I saw a posting about reseting the dashboard by removing the IOD fuse and replacing it but that did not help. I also tried pressing the trip button in and turning the ignition on as described in another post with no luck. Has anyone solved this or do I have a faulty speedometer requiring replacement? thanks Steve

Your speedometer quit working and now your car will not go from first gear and when you make sudden stops it will cut off What do you think this is from?

Speedometer quit working, car wont shiftI drove a 1993 Ford Taurus. It had transmission controlled shifting. In my situation, there was a very small $5.00 piece(plastic, of course) inside the tranny that controlled the shifting which needed to be replaced. I actually had it replaced at the dealer and cost me around $160.00. Sorry I couldn't help more but hope this gives you a direction, William

What causes the speedometer on a 1998 Ford Wind-star to stop working when the transmission warms up?

We have a 98 and it seemed that sometimes it wouldn't shift right, and the speedometer would all of a sudden stop.I would drop it down to second gear and it would stop, and straighten out. Quiestion to you: Do you have a check engine light on? If so, take it to your nearest Auto Zone, have them do test on it. 9 times out of ten it will proboly say it's the speed sensor. Try that.

Can you convert a TV to digital TV?

It is not possible to convert an analog television to a digital television. However, by using a digital set top receiver, it is possible to receive digital signals and deliver them as an analog signal to an analog television. Digital receivers are not expensive, starting at around $25 in US and £20 in the UK. They will allow all terrestrial channels to be received in the same way that a digital television will. Cable and satellite receivers can also receive digital signals and will provide an analog output that can be used with older televisions. With these options, there is no need to replace analog televisions right away. Remember that analog only televisions will not be HD so don't expect a sudden increase in picture quality when the digital receivers are used.
