why won't my speedometer work?


Asked by Jun 27, 2014 at 12:09 AM about the 1990 Chevrolet C/K 1500 Silverado Standard Cab Stepside SB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Just got my truck back today from the shop. Had my 5.7 350 rebuilt. But now my
speedometer doesn't work. The mechanic said he's at a loss. Said he thinks it's digital
because there was no cable running to the transmission.

1 Answer


First check and make sure speed sensor is plugged up,if it was working before the work, may be the mechanic shorted it out when he replaced motor,that said ,check speed sensor
