Why does my speedometer stop working after driving it a short time?

Asked by Oct 22, 2016 at 02:49 PM about the 2005 Kia Spectra EX

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

05 Kia Spectra EX  When i start the car in the morning it works correctly
MPH and mileage (odometer).  Once I drive it for a bit (5-30 minutes) it
stops workinng (goes to 0 mph and stops counting the mileage).  It seems
the hotter it is out side the less it works.  Also noticed that when
speedometer is working I can set the cruise control and once the
speedometer fails, it turns off the cruise control.  If the speedometer is not
working you cannot even turn on the cruise control.

This really sounds like a VSS but it usually turns on a check engine light, you may have to have the vehicle "live data" scanned to find the exact cause due to a no check engine light.
