This question was migrated from


speedometer cable not working


oscar figueroa, give us more information if you need help. what vehicle? What engine size, what transmission? what have you tried so far? The more information you can give us the better of an answer you can expect. A one sentence question will get you most likely no answer at all.


I have same problem and i m sure the problem is the cluster speedometer. Do any one know what is the common fault or from where i could buy one

RUDY, the part in your transmission was hopefully the Vehicle speed sensor. From what I understand, most of the failure on the Toyota's is actually the instrument cluster itself. Do go ahead and check your connector. That way at lest you know that the sensor and the harness are okay.\:" INSPECT VEHICLE SPEED SENSOR

(a) Connect the positive (+) lead from battery to terminal 1 and

negative (–) lead to terminal 2.

(b) Connect the positive (+) lead from tester to terminal 3 and

negative (–) lead to terminal 2.

(c) Revolve shaft.

(d) Check that there is voltage change from approx. 0 V to 11 V

or more between terminal 3 and 2.

HINT: The voltage change should be 4 times per each revolution

of the speed sensor shaft.

If operation is not as specified, replace the sensor.

If that should check out, you know it is not the sensor. then go ahead and check the connector to your instrument cluster

or the harness, you can check the instrument cluster using the wiring diagram.

If all those points check out okay, I definitely would repair or replace the instrument cluster. Hope this helps, good luck

I am having the same issue, accept my temperature gauge isn’t working also. I replaced the temp senso and tested the connectors. That all checked out, so I replaced the cluster and the same two gauges still don’t work. Any ideas?
