Jeep Wrangler speedometer cable

6 posts in this topic

I am getting a metallic type noise coming from my dashboard but only when I am going 45-60 mph. I am thinking it is the speedometer cable? Any other ideas? Is it possible to lubricate these things? How difficult to replace? Also is there a way to test the current cable,the pointer doesn't jump around or anything.The noise starts about 45mph and goes away above 60 mph. Sorry for the rambling post! Thanks in advance guys! confused.gifconfused.gif

I don't think one this new of wrangler has a speedo cable. There should be a speed sensor on the back side of the transfer case rather than a speedo cable. It may be the instrament cluster itself making the noise. specifically the speedo head.

Before I did anything I would remove the instrament cluster and drive it to make sure the noise has stopped. If it continues that it may be originating from the outside of the vehicle and has the illusion of coming from the back side of the dash.

        So, this Deer runs through the forest all winter without breaking it's neck on anything. Then breaks it's neck by your deck that just happens to have a bird feeder and lots of really big rocks by it? Did the Warden buy it?   Oh yeah nice fish haul.

      I always thought after shooting them from my deck, it couldn't get any easier; guess I was wrong. Lol! Backstraps never tasted sweeter. Hope you bought a lottery ticket.

      Information I have indicates the operator stopped his machine on the marked trail, in a section marked 'Thin Ice'. That is when the machine went through.

      Well i will dissent a little, of course having more motor than nessessary doesn't hurt. I have fished the spring nearly every year with a 55 or 65 lb thrust bowmount.  Only once did i have difficulties, it was rolling down stream, so i used the outboard, still sucked, got very wet. I have fish the river a hand full of times without a trolling motor and have still fone extremely well.
