I have a 2000 Cadillac Catera that the speedometer and tachometer stops working even though the mileage continues. I shut the car off and restart and sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. The car runs fine but what would cause the speedometer and tachometer to work periodically and stop working periodically? When the tachometer quits reading rpms the speedometer won't work either.

My rpm gage is not working, my speedometer is not working, my gas gage is not working, and my oil gage is not working, and my temperature gage is not working pretty much when i start up my car and drive it my speedometer and rpm gage reads 0 and my other , gages read nothing. my lights still work, so does my radio, and so does my turn signals. what could b the problem?


I'd wager that the fuse that controls the gauges is shot, or one of the internal connectors got unplugged (Fuse sounds more likely). Radio, Lights, and Turn Lamps are usually on seperate circuits. ... Ford Explorer

Hi, I have a volvo 740 made in belgium 1991 model. The speedomete spent a few months fluctuating wildly, sometimes working well, sometimes not at all, sometimes stuck on 140 km per hour. The odometer seemed to work when the speedometer was working. Since compulsory vehicle inspection is coming up, I pulled the whole instrument panel apart looking for loose wires etc and now it is all put together again I find that the odometer is working, but not the speedo. This seems to suggest that the diff s

I have a 1994 Honda Accord DX that has a speedometer problem. I replaced the speed sensor and that was not it. The speedometer works sometimes and then goes out. It has been doing this for three years. When it is not working the odometer is not working either. It may jump on and start working at any time and then it just goes off again.


We had the same problem with our 94 DX. It turned out to be a bad connection in the instrument cluster connector to harness connector . Try hitting the top of the dash while driving when the speedometer is not working and see if it starts to work w ... 1994 Honda Accord
