speedometer sometimes dosen't work

3 posts in this topic

98 ford windstar. Last it wouldn't shift into second and the speedometer never moved from zero. It works fine now. Lately the needle has been jumping around while driving. Any suggestions

The comon things on the windstar is a cluster, or the speed sensor. First thing I would do is hook a labscope, or a/c volt meter to the speed sensor, and see what the output of the sensor is as you are driving, if it looks good, then ck the signal at the speedo head ( cluster ) if it is the same as the sensor, replace cluster. If it is not ck wiring. If the signal out of the sensor is erratic, replace sensor.

      Sometimes you need em that size.      You guys did push me over the edge so I had to go out Sunday afternoon.  Thanks for that.

      I was going to try to go tomorrow (walking out in metro) despite the rain which appears to be light and I have a portable. Are you concerned about the ice conditions deteriorating throughout the day?  Or just for the rest of the week?

      Wow that ice went fast fished below the dam in Cold spring today. 3 feisty pike that was fun. Where the landing is there was about 20 feet of ice at the access. i was hoping to get the boat out but not yet. If anyone see's the ice go out by the landing let me know. Would like to get out however by Friday have heard any where from 1 inch to 20 so we will see.

        Do those 6" filet knifes work pretty good for pan fish?
