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.

      Did you finish 7th grade grammar? I'm trying to understand your question...can't!

      There are two main spawning spots on Vermilion that I know of. I'm near the one on the west end of Vermilion. The walleye haven't been as good on this end yet they don't pull any fish out from here. They've been pulling walleye out of the east end spawning spot in Pike Bay, and for some reason walleye have been doing better over there.   I have no doubt that there are many variables that go into the equation, but you can't ignore that the end they put the 10% back into has been doing better than the one where they leave it alone.

      Are there any updates for the area?  It sounds like crappie fishing is good in the shallows on Fishtrap.  I heard Sham is fighting high waters with no end in sight....

      Trolloni - Do you write it that way to actually troll us?  Creel/lake surveys show Vermilion is very healthy and the DNR continues to use new technology.  It's only going to get better.  If we listened to old, arm-chair QB's, fishing would be as shi#TY as the West side.

      At least10% of all eggs hatched at the Pike River Hatchery are returned to Vermilion waters every year. According to DNR statistics that percentage is usually a much higher survival rate then if they had let the walleyes spawn naturally! I consider that a good trade off! Cliff
