PLEASE HELP ME...
==========
1999 Ford Taurus Station Wagon: 109K
==========
When I was driving today, I had set CRUISE control and after some time(10 minutes), it automatically OFF>.I didnt press Brake..Same thing happened thrice..Then after sometime suddenly the speedometer was not started working. Immediately I got the 'Service Engine light' on...(MY BAD LUCK)

Still Service Engine Light is on and the speedometer is not working. I couldnt notice whether the odometer or fuel indicator is working or not.

Please suggest what would be the problem and how much it costs for me to repair:

Last week I got the 'service Engine light' on and replaced the O2 sensor..I am getting a series of probloems with this car. I brought his Car from party and I already spend USD 500 for one or the other problems..

PLEASE HELP ME...Please suggest what would be the problem and how much it cost..?

THANKS IN ADVANCE.

I have a 1998 Taurus, 107,350miles- My speedometer that is not working is also affecting my gear from shifting out of 1st. I hope the fuse will solve all my problems! Thanx Bruce.

If the fuse isn't working, then it is the Speed Sensor. I had that exact problem with my 97 taurus, and I had a mechanic change the speed sensor, and replace all the plugs. It cost me about $87 for the parts, and $50 for the labor.

I was driving my 1998 Chrysler Concorde and noticed the speedometer was not working at all and the check engine light came on.
Mileage is 40,000. The car is an automatic.
Any advise would be most appreciated.

My speedometer is not working. Odometer is still working. All of sudden, the needle on the speedometer dropped to 0 but on the other side of the plastic leg on the face plate.

I have a '94 taurus with a electronic/digital speedo. My speedometor will not work and it is affecting my shifting and fuel readings. I have replaced the speed sensor and also double checked it, while doing this I felt that I was able to spin the gear on the inside of the trans. to the sensor. My question is where can i purchase this part and how do I replace it. Fingers crossed i hope that is where my issue lies.

Good luck to you Andy. I just installed one today, a true S.O.B. Pep Boys had both in stock. Depending on how many bolts are in your trans oil pan determins which style you require. My oil pan has 17 bolts, others have 19 bolts.
Jack up the pass. side of the car, remove ft. pass tire. Use a bottle jack & a 12" 2x4" & slightly raise the front. of motor & trans. Remove the firewall side motor mount and bracket. follow the wires with your finger tips to find the bolt.I just got in there using a deep well 10mm w/ 2" extension, & getting 3 clicks a try with a 1/4 " rathchet. I would recommend to the novice to drop the firewall side exaust manifold. Thats a lot more work. But it would give you plenty of working room.

First, Check the fuses... Your speedometer is electronic & if it quits working, it will effect other funtions of the vehicle. If you still have the owners manual, it will list which fuse is for which function. If not, there is maybe a diagram on the back of the fuse cover.
Second, search for any loose or frayed wires particularly between the motor, firewall, & trans. area.
Good luck.
