Analog Speedo Not Moving

Recommended Posts

Hiya. I wanted to see if you guys might have any ideas as to why my analog speedometer is no longer functioning. I do get a good reading from the digital one.  Any thoughts are appreciated.

If the digital speedometer is working it must be getting a speed signal, which is generated by the ABS sensors.  I would suspect the gauge itself.  If you know someone with a PST2 or PIWIS tester, they can check the analog gauge with the Drive Links function in the Instrument Cluster control module.

Thank you, Richard. I’ll try to track someone down. The needle is pegged at the top of the scale. Maybe the connections on the back were eventually affected by heat. Dad used to leave the car out in the hot sun quite a lot.
