I have the same problem on an '89 Dodge Dynasty. I am told that the odometer and speedometer in my car are driven by separate cables and that I simply need a new cable for my odometer to function properly again. I have not verified this information, but it might get you on track.

Odometer isn't working on 2001 dodge caravan?

I would say you have a problem with the dash cluster. If both speedometer and odometer were not working I would say the problem may be the speed sensor but being only the odometer is out I would blame the cluster. I believe you will have to replace the cluster as a whole with a reconditioned unit. This will probably be a dealer item only.

Why would the odometer on a 1990 Dodge Ram quit working while the speedometer continues to work?

If you open the odometer, there are two small plastic gears. One is connected to the speedometer, the other to the odometer. The speedometer gear drives the odometer gear. In all likelihood, one of these gears is missing a few teeth. I have the same problem with my Ramcharger, same year.

What would cause the speedometer gage and the RPM gage to quit working at the same time on a 1999 Dodge Grand Caravan?

Probably a power spike, often when a Caravan is "jumped". Try pushing the odometer/trip odometer button for 4-8 seconds. When it starts running a diagnostic test the speedometer should start jumping around and then reset itself. If it doesn't last, you may have a bad circuit. If a 100.??? comes up, you have problem of some type, maybe related-maybe not.

The legality of replacing the odometer would be in question. I would take out the dash with the speedo and take it to a certified speedometer repair facility. Like stated before, I would buy a service manual or cd.


What happened if odometer wire is diconected from transmission?

That depends on the year, make, and model. Most newer cars do not have a dedicated speedometer or odometer wire. The speed sensors are also used for shift timing. If it as old enough vehicle that has a dedicated speed sensor the speedometer and cruise would also not work. Some vehicles, such as 1998 on up Dodge trucks, use the abs sensors for the speedometer and odometer.

Most likely the VSS. Vehicle Speed Sensor. It is mounted on the side of the transmission.


Your speedometer on your 1995 Dodge caravan stopped working how do you find the cable to replace it?

There is no speedometer cable on a 1995 caravan. it is done by a speed sensor on the transmission and digtal data is sent to the computer and the computer then sends the signal to the speedometer. This is the case even when the speedometer looks analog. Likely a bad speedometer is the cause if it does not move as the speed sensor is used for other functions and would trip the "check engine" light if it was bad. the speedometer is part of the instrument cluster and likely you would need to change the whole thing.


Why would a 1990 Dodge ram B250 van speedometer and odometer and cruise not work is this cable or sensor If sensor where is a good place to start?

When those things on my 92 B250 did not work, I replaced the speed sensor located on the transmission tailshaft and that fixed the problems. Hope that helped!
