Help!
Was driving along today and my speedo randomly dropped down and stopped working. I looked and engine management light thing was on too. So, stopped car and restarted it. The light went off like normal but the speedo still dont work! I have had the clocks out before replacing the bulbs and facia in it etc, so im presuming its the speedo cable or sumit, but its in perfectly fine!?
Please help
Thanks

is it cable driven yes?
if so then it could be the speedo gear on the gear box its plastic and can wear out
also it could be the speedo itself

I had exactly the same thing , engine light and cutting out and no speedo , It was the speedo cable that broke at the join in the middle of the cable. Think i paid about 12 quid for a new one and i fitted it myself.

Yeah, sounds like cable problem.

What year is your car??

Shouldnt cost much for the cable and should be easy to fit yourself.

dont talk to me about speedo cables i broke 2 of them before i fitted the bloody thing right


when u had the dials out did u take the other end of the speedo cable off the gearbox? if so did u put it back on correctly? they snap if u dont

the Ecu light will come on if the cable is snaped. If u turn off the engine it will go off again but it comes back on after a while

40 for a cable?

the cable cost me 30 from vauxhaul themselves so thats about 20-25 and there a piece of piss to fit about 10 mins work if you fit it right!

mine stopped working properly after i fitted my white dials, think i manhandled it a bit. the mileage goes up but the speedo reads 30-40 mph off,and sits on the milage reset switch, when stationary. i couldnt have snapped the cable cos i didnt see/ touch it

Hmmmm..... Same thing just happened to me (98 1.6L Barina swing). Turned out to be a 20amp fuse (no 18) cryptically labeled as KL15. Thought I'd mention it in case it happens to anyone else!
