Hi, I have a 95 Toyota 4Runner 2WD. No ABS. Has a cable driven speedometer, which is not working.
Originally thought it was the speedo, which I replaced with a known good speedometer from another 4runner. Didnt fix the problem. Drove the car with the gauges out, noticed that the end of the speedometer cable wasn't moving as I drove the car. Disconnected the speedo cable from the trans housing, noticed cable wouldn't turn freely when turned by hand. Replaced cable with a new part from dealership. Drove car again, noticed that the new cable is not moving either, have not tried with the cluster in. The cable turns freely by hand. No apparent damage to the keyway or the drive in the transmission housing as far as I can tell.
Should the cable be turning to drive the speedo or am I missing something? Could the drive in the trans be damaged/not working? What could other problems be?
have the same problem?
