Your 1995 164LS transmission is not shifting out of 1st gear sometimes At the same time the speedometer does not work Ive rebuilt transmission and replaced computer Is there a speed sensor?
Yes there is a speedometer sensor on top of the tranny that feeds the transmission computer and the speedo gauge. See the service manual for details on where it is, I believe on the LS it is acccessible without having to drop the tranny.
What is causing my 2000 Dodge neon to not shift out of low gear and the speedometer works and quits?
try replacing the output speed sensor on the transmission housing. Just a small part (about $30 at auto parts stores), it screws into the transmission housing and sends a signal to the computer. Without this signal, computer cannot decide what to do with speedometer and cannot shift transmission properly. I replaced one on my daughter's 1999 Plymouth Breeze, with the same engine as the Neon. She had the exact symptoms you do, and it solved…
What part needs to be replaced for a 1989 Nissan Sentra when the odometer and speedometer are not working?
Most of the time, the speedometer cable breaks, and you replace it. The best way to find out, is to unscrew it from the transmission, and see if you can pull the cable out from the casing. If it checks out to be good, then it will be the drive gear inside the transmission, or the speedometer itself.
It means that you vehicle speed sensor on the transmission is bad and needs replaced. The speedometer is controled by the computer even though it is a needle and not digital readout. The odometer however is controled by a cable (engineers sheesh). The sensor is located on the top of the transmission back by the firewall good luck getting in there the manual says to remove the exaust manafold.
What would cause a 1991 Mazda Protege to have a blinking hold light and a non-functional speedometer?
The speedometer cable (which runs from the transmission to the dashboard) has snapped. This is a two-piece cable, and the one-piece cable in later Proteges will not work. I had the transmission replaced, and the cable could never be fit in properly. This is a mechanical speedometer, so you would have to change the entire speedometer part of the instrument panel to use a magnetic/electronic speedometer.
Had the same problem off and on in my 1999 Taurus. The speedometer needs to be replaced. The problem is in the speedometer and not the transmission like I was initially led to believe. My mechanic said it wasn't that big of a repair. Coincidentally, the vehicle speed sensor feeds information to both the speedometer and the transmission.... See "Related Questions" below for more
What could be the problem on a 1993 Honda Civic VX If the speedometer odometer intermittently works and you have replaced the speed sensor on the transmission?
The cable that controls the speedometer needs to be replaced more than likely. That is what had to be done to a Dodge Stealth's speedometer to work properly. ==New Answer == Actually - there is no speedometer/odometer cable on a 1993 Honda. The system is all-electrical. So it has to be either a bad wiring harness/plug connector, OR a bad speedometer head (unlikely).
What causes a speedometer to lose acceleration response but still eventually get to the correct speed?
Why doesnt my speedometer in a 92 jeep Cherokee workbut the odometer does. I have replaced the sensor.?
you need to change the speedometer cause if your odometer is counting then speedometer should be working too. make sure your speed gear its working its in the side of the transmission The odometer and speedometer read off of the same signal. If one works, the signal is ok and the other gauge is bad.
What is wrong with the car when the speedometer needle goes crazy and you don't know how fast you're going?
What does a flashing S light mean on a 1991 Honda Accord and is it related to the fact the speedometer does not work?
Transmission problem. Yes it is related to the speedometer not working. VSS sensor may be bad. Have the transmission computer scanned. I had a flshing s light for a long time, while my spedometer worked fine, the car had trouble starting. I replaced the main relay under the dash and haven't had a prob since. I had the same problem with my 91 accord Ex...it turned out to be the alternator. The "S" light was…
This is very common on the 1996 Ford Escort unfortunately. Basically the speedometer cable has to be re-greased or the speedometer has to be replaced with the older 80mph model. Both "fixes" require disassembly of the dash to get to the cable/speedometer. See the ford escort owners association for more details/instructions.
it is a loose solder joint...meaning behind your dash the connection is loose....take out the screws on the top of the dash and pull out. If you have an automatic transmission, there is a sensor right behind the oil filter. Sometimes the sensor goes bad and needs to be replaced for about $156 at Nissan. I have found that by sometimes jiggling the wires by pushing them gently into the sensor can solve the problem…
1996 sunfire 2 2 Liter Speedometer has stopped working but will kick on now and then When it's working the Check Engine indicator lights up and sometimes the engine will sputter Any ideas?
Might be the speed sensor. We figured out the problem with the speedometer not working. it turns out the brainiacs at General Motors installed the computer without protecting it from the elements. The computer was corroded along with the wires. Luckily the computer was covered under a recall that was on sunfires...and I had to pursuade GM to pay for the wires to be replaced as well... Hopefullly this helps someone who might be in…
It really depends upon the type of car (year, brand, model, etc.). I had the same issue on a 90 Honda Accord. This particular car had a sending unit on the transaxle (transmission) that failed. The connection from the sending unit to the speedometer is electrical. I replaced the sending unit and all was well. Other cars have a cable that connects from the transmission to the speedometer. If you have this type of car…
What would make my 1999 Chrysler cirrus stick in second gear the Speedometer is working and I have already replaced the output speed sensor and am still having shifting problems.?
There is no speedometer cable on a 1990 Chrysler New Yorker. The speedometer is electically driven by a speed sensor mounted on the transmission. often the contacts are just corroded and some electrical cleaner will fix it right up. Other times the sender will have to be replaced. They are available from major Auto Parts stores like NAPA, or from the dealer.
On a 2000 Ford Crown Victoria Interceptor what would cause the speedometer to not work. I just replaced the bulbs in the cluster panel. i was told entire cluster has to be replaced is there a cable?
your car is equipped with a vehicle speed sensor and also check your fuses, sometimes you'll only have one guage not working with a blown fuse, the sensor is located on the tail housing of the transmission, there is no cable i hope this helps you your car is equipped with a vehicle speed sensor and also check your fuses, sometimes you'll only have one guage not working with a blown fuse, the sensor is…
Why when you had the transmission replaced on a 1992 Dodge Caravan would the mechanic say he could not figure out how to hook up the speedometer?
1989 F150 4.9What if the speedometer does not work and you have replaced the speed sensor and checked fuses Any suggstions?
if i remember correctly they did not start using an electronic speedometer in f150's till 1992 so your vehicle should still have a mechanical speedometer which has a cable ran down to your transmission. the sensor on the rear differential on those models is an abs sensor on 92 and later its the abs and speed sensor.
Because your speedometer drive gear box probably needs to be replaced. Jack up the car (drive wheels off ground) disconnect speedo from transmission. Have someone start the car, put it in drive and look at the gear box to see if it is spinning. The drive gear box costs less than 20 buck son most cars.
Tempo transmissions are tied to the cars speed. If the transmission cannot sense the car's speed, then the transmission will never shift out of 1st gear. If your speedometer is not working, this is most likely the problem. It could be one of two things. The easiest is a bad speed sensor. This is a sensor that the speedometer cable connects to, and it also has an electronic plug on it. If that is not…
How do you fix the speedometer on a 1990 dodge power ram with a cummins it is currently just bouncin around between 20-45 mph.?
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! Mark When the speedometer and odometer did not work in my 1990 B250, I had to replace the speed sensor, instrument cluster (speedometer) and replace a tiny gear (odometer) in order to get them working properly
You have to find out what's wrong with it first If the odometer is working then the speedometer "head" needs repair. This requires some disassembly to get the speedometer out of the dash. If the odometer is not working it is most likely the inner cable to the transmission. Take the cable loose from the transmission and remove the gear. Check the gear for broken teeth and a worn out square hole where the cable…
HI, It could be a few things, the cable might have broken, the cable might have become disconnected at the speedometer, the cable might have become disconnected at the transmission, the speedometer might have become faulty or the back of the speedometer where the cable connects th it might have broken, if that happens then you need a new speedometer, it's cheaper and easirer to gat a replacement instrument cluster than look for just a…
Really, all of them. Technology advances overtime and things are replaced or upgraded. Sometimes a combination. For instance, the typewriter was replaced by a computer, but in a way the computer was also an upgrade. The walkman, which played cassetes, was replaced by the mp3 player, but in a way it was also an upgrade since they both play music.
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 shift I 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
