speedometer problem...


hey guys, i have a prblem whit my speedometer, (1995 bronco), the needle is no steady, and it happens when its over 80 kph (do the math), and while faster i go the more the needle moves... is this an electrical problem or do this speedometer work whit a gauge? (im not quite sure if gauge is what i think it means, but, hope u got what i mean...)

Re: speedometer problem...

It sounds like you may have a broken cable.

Sounds like the speed sensor mounted on the center section of the rear axle.

Re: speedometer problem...

Easy, fellers, he's not a native English speaker!

The most likely answer is that metal shavings have gotten stuck to the magnetic speed sensor that bolts through the top of the rear axle. Unbolt the single bolt and pull the sensor and see if there's metal on the end, then clean it all off. If so, you really ought to pull the rear cover and assess the damage, and at least replace the gear oil. If you have a limited slip diff, I would bet money that this is your problem!

Yeah, I wish my spanish was as good as his English. He does live in Venezuala so my hat's off to him there. I wish more people living IN America would put in as much effort.
