Today my speedometer stopped working. The needle is stuck at 0 kms. Is there a DIY on how to fix this? Does it need to get replaced? How big a job is it to replace?
Is it an offence to drive a car with speedometer that's not working. I will now be guessing am I under the speed limit or over the speed limit. Oh well maybe I can enjoy driving without checking the speedometer all the time.
Is it just the speedo that's not working or other gauges too? The first time it happened to me it was the speed sensor at the gearbox. Only my speedo and odo didn't work. Second time round it was my dash cluster - my speedo worked intermittently before failing completely along with the fuel gauge and tacho.
Hey guys, I'm new to the site and just bought a Vw golf Mk3. It has the same problem with the speedo, i've noticed there's a few sites with people complaining about the same thing. It seems to work when I first start the car, then when I jump back in the car it's stopped working. I spent this evening pulling out the dash and having a play with it, everything looks fine and in working order. Someone suggested that it's possibly the solder on the circuits overheating, making the signal scatter. But all the other gauges are working... Not sure.?? I will spend the day tomorrow pulling it apart again and will inform you if I find out what the cause is. For now i'm just using the speedo on my GPS to get me around! lol.
