Q: Q: Speedometer isn't working

asked by on

The speedometer isn't working, and the Check Engine Light is on.

Hi. If your speedometer is not working, and your Check Engine Light this may be a sign that your speedometer sensor has failed. As the speedometer sensor is located in the transmission, underneath the vehicle, I would recommend having the vehicle looked at by a professional technician, such as one from your mechanic, and replace the failing speedometer sensor.
