I tried to repair by my dealer, but unfortunately they were unable to repair it. I am not sure what to expect. The speedometer cable on my 95 4Runner has stopped working completely. Stopped working, then worked yesterday afternoon after washing down engine compartment. There's a whole long story behind this.
I suspect I will see a resistance for the speedometer. Before the speed sensor of your pickup truck becomes suspect to some problems, you need to test it and see if it has good voltage. The sensor has to be removed from the vehicle and placed on a flat surface. You may think that the speed sensor of your car is already malfunctioning because it is showing various problematic signs. Over time, the speed sensor will show signs of wearing down and start to malfunction.
When it was working, it was jumping during acceleration and in park when revving. Sometimes it settles back at the actual speed, but it can be about 10 minutes until it does. After about 10 mins of trying to find a paper clip, I finally found one and was able to read the code. Can the problem be related or serperate? I'd go with the dealer for the part, they should have them in stock. To get the cable off the cluster you have to take the dash apart a bit to get the cluster loose. I swapped that one with my dad's 93 and still no workie! I think that lockup has something to do with tranmission cooling.
I thought that the guys just didn't fix what they were suppose to fix. There are two of them, one is an in put Velocity sensor and the out is the out put Velocity sensor. I'm looking to find a replacement on sites like eBay, but the pickings are slim. Now cars use a sensor at the transmission which provides an electrical signal that… 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. Well, I exited the freeway and got to the first light.
Any experts out there on this??? Yes, I've seen this on more than just a 2wd. I suspect I will see a resistance for the speedometer. The sensor has to be removed from the vehicle and placed on a flat surface. These trucks are pretty notorious for this issue and usually it can be fixed by pulling the cluster apart, replacing the capacitors, fixing the circuit board if there has been any shorts and giving it a good cleaning. The 1994 is electronic the with a speed sensor on the transmission that sends pulses to the speedometer.
Perhaps you meant to say your electric speed sensor that's on the left side of the transmission is broken, not your speedometer cable itself? No offense, I just don't want to give bad or misdirected advise. Hello, If I'm not mistaken, there speedometers on 1994 Toyota pickups rely on a mechanical cable connected to the speedometer on one end and the transmission on the other. Jun 18, 2011 Is the car going to be worth any more than 500 bucks with a working cluster, no. A Toyota vehicle speed sensor is usually bullet proof. I am not sure what to expect.
Well, after work came and I jumped in my cruiser to start my whopping 5 mile commute, and I noticed there was a new problem. I suggest you to go through help links mentioned below with appropriate solutions to confirm the problem :------ How to trouble shoot speedometer? I got towed to another dealer and he said that I burned up my transmission. Got to bump this up. Sometimes it settles back at the actual speed, but it can be about 10 minutes until it does. Will it have any effect on my transmission, especially when driving long distances at higher speeds? Anyone bother to see if you're even getting proper cooling is the first thing, why. The same goes for his tachometer. The next day I went on a 400 mi trip.
You may think that the speed sensor of your car is already malfunctioning because it is showing various problematic signs. The symptom of an occasional bounce is that of a bad cluster. I was fustrated to say the least. How about looking into the sensor? A speedometer shows how fast a vehicle is moving in either miles or Kilometers per hour. The speedometer works off a small black cable,that run's from the back of the speedometer under the dash to the transmission even if the line looks good it can still be broken inside the line. A plastic gear in the transmission spins the cable. So the tranny is working flawlessly, just this damn light is blinking.
I have located the sensor and want to determine if the sensor is bad or the wiring to the sensor is bad. When you wipe the sensor with a clean rag, make sure to clean it gently because the top portion of the sensor is very sensitive. So the tranny is working flawlessly, just this damn light is blinking. Will it have any effect on my transmission, especially when driving long distances at higher speeds? That was over a 20 year period. In my case my odometer is indicating the mileage but not my vehicles speed. However, it just might be the dirt on the sensor's surface that's causing all the problems. The odometer is not working as well as the speedometer not working.
