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 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.

What is wrong when speedometer doesn't work and the transmission doesn't shift in a 2004 impala?

Replace your speedometer sensor. I just had mine replaced in my '04 Impala. The sensor tells the tranny when to shift. It's located right in front of the transmission.

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 them all.

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.

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).

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 causes a speedometer to lose acceleration response but still eventually get to the correct speed?

A speedometer that loses response time but gets up to the speed of the vehicle probably has a problem with a gear slipping inside the speedometer mechanism. This sometimes happens in older vehicles. The speedometer cable may have to be replaced to fix this problem.

What is wrong with the car when the speedometer needle goes crazy and you don't know how fast you're going?

If the speedometer needle is going crazy and not working properly, it is probably the speedometer mechanism that needs to be replaced. It could also mean the vehicle is having a transmission slippage problem if the needle is bouncing back and forth.

Why would 1997 Ford Taurus speedometer stop working and now your car will not accelerate?

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 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 turned out to be the alternator. The "S" light was malfunctioning along with the speedometer and Tach. While the light stayed on, the tach and speedo where intermittent problems.

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.

1996 ford escort lx manual transmission speedometer is flipping out. What should be done?

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.

Your speedometer and odometer suddenly stopped working whats wrong and how do you fix it?

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, the problem could be the cable, the gear at the end of the cable that runs off of the transmission or the speedometer itself. More information is needed to provide further details. What type of car do you have? Do you have a manual?
