You drove through a puddle of high water in your 2000 Pontiac Firebird Now the lights behind your dashboard work but your odometer speedometer thermostat gas gauge are all staying at zero Fuse prob?

Sounds like you have a short in the main wire that goes from the computer to your gauges it doesnt have anything to do with your fuses.

My speedometer works and the odometer does not because there is a plastic gear in the odometer that is broken.

There is no odometer/speedometer cable in that vehicle. The odometer/speedometer is electronic.

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.

maybe your speed sensor is bad you will get a check engine light on the dashboard too.

why would a speedometer and odometer not work on a suzuki motorcycle?

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.

A speedometer tells you how fast you are travelling but an odometer tells you how far you have travelled.

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

Speedometer is ran by electronic sensor on rear end. Odometer is ran from speedometer. If both don't work problem is sensor. If speedometer works sensor is okay. If speedometer works and odometer does not problem is in mechanical parts (gears) of of odometer and has to be replaced. Can get used from eBay (search for speedometer or odometer, is one unit) or take to dealer.

If you search the Internet (I prefer google) for "broken odometer" or some such keyword(s) - you will find your answer(s). But basically, you have two options, find a similar car/odometer at a junkyard, and replace the broken one with one that's working from there.... Or, take it (or send it....) to a speedometer shop which will be able to reconfigure the speedometer. Option 3, I found a high-tech site that details removing the dashboard, removing the speedometer from the dashboard, opening up the speedometer, replacing a broken gear in there (if it's a mechanical speedometer), then basically putting it back together in reverse. Sounded kinda technical, cause you gotta be sooo careful not to move/nudge the numbers the wrong way, or bend the odometer needle when putting it back onto the shaft.

If the speedometer works but the odometer does not, the odometer has failed.

There are certain car gauges which are mandatory to have in a dashboard. These gauges are the speedometer, the temperature gauge, the fuel gauge, the tachometer, oil pressure gauge, charging system gauge, and odometer.

The gears in the speedometer are stripped. If the odometer is working then you have input.

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.

the speed sensor is located on the side of the transmission, there is no physical cable like the older cars, the speedometer and sensor are electronic. If the speedometer is working and showing speed traveled but the trip meter (odometer) is not working, the speedometer itself is faulty, is the speedometer is not showing speed travel and the odometer is not logging miles travel, then most likely the speed sensor is dead.

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.

They both work off of the same signal. If the speedometer works but the odometer doesn't, the odometer has failed.

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.

Does your odometer work? If the speed sensor goes faulty both speedometer and odometer stop working.

Another name for an Odometer is a Speedometer, situated right in front of the drivers eyes in the instrument panel./////the speedometer tells you the speed of the vehicle as the odometer tells you the distance the car has traveled the odometer is normally mounted in the spedeometer

Both the odometer and speedometer are scalar because a vector measurement needs a magnitude and direction. If you, for example, combined a compass and a odometer/speedometer, you'd have a vector.

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.
