My Civic 95, speedo meter has suddenly stopped functioning, we had discussed the same some time ago, I cant find the thread, please suggest what sould I do?? by the way the needle some time jumps to 160km/h even when the car is around 40km/h !!
how are you? well coming to the point i had the similar prob with my townace 96 model . the problem was with the unit attached to the gear as in my car the meter was electric as in no cable only wires what we call digitally controlled. if the other function on your speedometer are working properly as in rpm meter gauges and lights then im sure that is the only prob as the transponder might be damaged and is not sending out the right signal to the speedometer and it jumps and please do check the connections of the transponder on the gear and if byany chance you have the cable type meter then please check the speedometer garari in the gear which will be bolted on the gear....if all these things are ok then go to the local electrician ask him to open ur speedometer and get it replaced from bilal ganj as i dont think the electricians wud be able to fix it if its digital.....im sure its a small prob nothing to worry abt u just need to spend 2 hrs on it which is not a good idea in this summervery hotsalam i hope this wud help
next time , wenever the needle jums to 160 kmph , take a pic and post it on pakwheels
no need of lifting ur car on jack
may be a wire circiut u should change the wire.
in ur case, speedo is goverened mechanically from the transmission box so u'd better check the speedo cable especially the link where it connects with trans. its gears might ve play or are free. is there any visible leakage on that linkage.
I've visited a mechanic he say may the sprocket is damaged that is connected to gear box :S coz all other meters, lights etc are functioning properly
Any way thanx for the help
