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?

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.

The speedometer and odometer are electrically operated. There is no mechanical connection to the drivetrain. If there is no power, they don't work.

If both the speedometer and odometer stopped working it is probably the speed sensor in the transmission gone bad. If only the speedometer quit you may have to replace the dash cluster with a reconditioned unit.

The speedometer and odometer may stop working in a Nissan Pathfinder due to an electrical short. It may also need a new spark plug.

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

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.

User Avatar

If the odometer has failed, does the speedometer still work? They are both driven by a cable which spins. If the speedometer is still working, than the odometer has jammed. Probably a dealer fix.

If your odometer/speedometer stopped working, then you must replace the "vehicle speed sensor" located on top of the differential if your have a manual transmission.

There are a few reasons that could cause the speedometer to stop working on your Toyota Camry. If the mileage is still working then the speedometer cable end is damaged. If both the odometer and speedometer do not work then the cable is most likely broken.

User Avatar

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.

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.

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

CHECK THE SPEED SENSOR TO MAKE SURE IT IS HOOKED UP AND DO AN OHMS TEST ON IT TO MAKE SURE IT ISNT BAD

My odometer stopped working about a month ago.

User Avatar

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.

User Avatar

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

User Avatar

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

User Avatar

If your speedometer has stopped working just put the key in the off position and hold down the trip odometer button until you see some codes come on the odometer. That should reset your speedometer. I could not figure out which fuse was for the speedometer and some one told me about this and it worked right away.
