Q: Speed sensor may be bad

asked by on

The speedometer isn't working. I think the speed sensor is bad.

You are likely correct. The speed sensor is the most common problem with this type of issue and this would need to be checked and scanned to review any faults. I recommend having a certified mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, come to your home or office to inspect your speedometer issue and replace your speed sensor if necessary.
