My speedometer/odometer stopped working and the next day my O/D light started flashing and check engine light comes on once I reach freeway speeds. They stay on until I shut off the vehicle then when I restart the car they stay off until I reach higher speeds and the lights come back on.
Do you
have the same problem?

Good morning,

I need the code number to help. There are 2 vehicle speed sensors, and the code number will narrow down which one has the issue.

The fact the speedometer is not working is why both lights are coming on. The engine and transmission need to see road speed at all times.

I attached the procedure and location for you of the sensor.

I got that situation fixed and it was the speedometer cable but now I have trouble starting it back up after I’ve drove it an hour ago. I have a really rough idle and sometimes it turns off after a while of idling. I live in a hot area. I added more coolant. Something else to add is that it says my oil pressure is low and it fluctuates with how much I accelerate.
