A speedometer is one of those things you cannot afford to miss because you cannot rely on a hunch or manual signals to feel the gear and know whether you are within the correct speed limits. Vehicle speedometers are complicated little systems with intricate workings, and a slight misstep will significantly impact your driving.
What Are The Signs Of A Dysfunctional Speedometer?
The engine control unit converts the rotation speed into information passed onto the dashboard for communication to the driver. An issue with the system will manifest in the following ways:
- A completely dead speedometer
- Flickering engine light
- Random readings of the speedometer
- Faulty readings such as an extraordinarily high or low calibration of the fuel levels
What Causes Speedometer To Stop Working?
The engine control unit is the center of all speedometer functions, and any problem with it will cause a range of issues such as a flickering engine light, poor fuel efficiency, and problems with the gears. ECU issues are potentially expensive to fix, and you would need a lot of work to recalibrate and install the new unit.
The speedometer will usually drop to zero if there is a disconnect with the electrical system. Taking the vehicle to one of our shops will help ensure the fault does not expand to other areas because we follow all proper protocols when adding or removing features from the vehicle.
The sensor is an essential feature of the vehicle, and a break in the system will ultimately destabilize the speedometer and its functions. Faulty sensors will cause many transmission problems, issues with the gauge control, and lighting complications. A mechanic from Dashboard Instrument Cluster will follow the trail of issues down to the root issues and ensure that they repair and replace all necessary features.
The analog speedometers can have broken cables because some shafts are made of plastic. We would need to remove all of the parts in the system, such as the gauge cluster and gears, to ensure the systems are in excellent condition and you can navigate the vehicle with the right speed readings.
