you can go to speedometer and out of speedometer
On older vehicles, it would usually mean that the speedometer cable is broken or disconnected. On newer vehicles it would probably be a computer problem.
If the speedometer and the odometer are not working, I would suspect the VSS (vehicle speed sensor). If only the speedometer is not working I would suspect the instrument cluster has problems.
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.
why would a speedometer stop working on a Mazda
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.
I would like to know that answer as well. My speedometer isn't even close to accurate. Also, my brake light stays on now. I can reset it by disconnecting the battery, but about 10 - 15 miles later, it comes back on. These issues occurred at the same time. It may be related to me towing a trailer and connecting the lights a short time before. Any assistance would be appreciated.
Not knowing the year, make and model vehicle it limits how much we can help you. If the speedometer cluster is digital and both the speedometer and odometer is not working I would suspect the vehicle speed sensor is at fault. If only the speedometer is not working I would suspect the dash cluster is at fault.
The gears in the speedometer are stripped. If the odometer is working then you have input.
TCM Malfunction, And/Or Speedometer Sensor Malfunction.
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.
If the speedometer and odometer both quit I would blame the speed sensor. If only the speedometer quit I would blame the instrument cluster.
If both the speedometer and odometer are not working I would suspect the VSS (Vehicle Speed Sensor) is at fault. If the speedometer doesn't work and the odometer does, I would suspect the instrument cluster is at fault.
check speedometer cable for possible disconnection; it comes out of firewall and goes to transmission
Try changing the headlight switch.
its is you tachnometer that needs to be reseated or replaced.
The problem would be that the car is messed up
If the speedometer continues to work - probably a broken gear etc. in speedometer head and probably will have to be replaced. If speedometer does not work -- probably a broken speedometer cable
That the lights need fixing maybe?? That the lights need fixing maybe??
Do you mean the speedo, or the fuel guage?
the little gear that turns the numbers is broke and the only way to fix is replace the whole speedometer.
Well due to the velocity of that car it could either be pressure building up in that part or a certain liquid is building up/leaking and it is creating technical difficulties such the speedometer to stop working
If the parking/tailight fuse is good - then it may be a bad headlight switch No tail lights but the bulbs are working? Please explain.
The speedometer and odometer are electrically operated. There is no mechanical connection to the drivetrain. If there is no power, they don't work.
