Speedometer does not work new senor did not help

WHAT IS NEXT IT IS A 1997 CAD DEVILLE D ELEGANCE

Bad speedo cluster. Talk to these guys: www.bba-reman.com. They can fix your current dash a lot cheaper than replacing it.


#3

Have you checked to see if the circuit is getting power? If not, check that out.


#4

the cluster lights up the only thing that works is my gas gage the odom does not the trip does not. how ever when i start up it lights up . norm


#5

would this be in my fuse box under mt hood i have two the other is in my trunk


#6

Cruise Control Module And Circuit/Connection? PCM-Powertrain Control Module And Circuit/Connection?
I’d really check those out.

GM advises checking all connectors pertaining to the component that has failed. They suggest unplugging and replugging any/all related connections. Either a failed part or its connectivity can fail. Cougar has the voltage supply covered.

Was the speedometer working fine and all of a sudden went dead? Was there any warning or any other clues to this problem. I have important questions. Other guages (Do you have temp/oil/messages, etcetera?) besides gas guage are working? Is it only the speedo, odo, trip, and probably the cruise that are inoperative? How about the cruise? Have you tried it?

Norm, I Tried To find Locations For These Expensive Components. I Could Not.

The sensor that was replaced and didn’t fix it must have been a vehicle speed sensor (VSS), correct?

How were all the fuses? Cougar suggested checking them. Do you have the Owner’s Manual that came with the car? They usually tell where multiple fuse boxes are located and also identify fuses as to the circuits they’re on.

I appreciate your financial situation and difficulty with communicating on the computer. That was a good idea to check the web to see what others say. Have you checked with a local dealer to see if they would stand behind their speedometer diagnosis and not make you pay for extra parts/labor if it’s wrong?

Should you decide to do some diagnosing yourself (maybe checking connections), you will need some sort of service manual. Auto parts stores, generally, sell them. Try before you buy. Look up a couple of things pertaining to component locations and see if it’s helpful, first.

Try your public library. My local library stinks when it comes to car repair or service manuals, but some have a good selection.

Have you walked around the vehicle to see if all the lights are working?

Let us know what is happening. I Wish I could be more helpful.
