    Speedo and Tach not working, all other gauges and odo are fine, though

    Last week my speedo and tach stopped working while I was on lunch, but in the morning when I drove it to work it was just fine.

    They both stay at zero and once in a while it will start working again.

    All my other gauges and the odo are working perfectly fine, though.

    Any help will be much appreciated.

    Thanks.

    The speedometer is related to the ABS module, but that would not affect the Tach (as far as I know). Are you also getting an ABS light when this happens? Fuse 24 is for the Instrument Cluster - perhaps the fuse is loose.

    No, I'm not getting an ABS light. It works occasionally. I'll check the fuses.

    The same thing happens to my Catera when its really hot outside. If I can remember correctly someone on here mentioned it was the speed sensor, it makes a lot of sense since its right next to the exhaust. I know its from heat because when I get out of work after being parked in the shade it works but once I get home and turn the car off and then back on it doesn't work. This started back in the fall but it when away as the heat went away but it just recently started back up again so I'm more than likely going to buy the part. The speed sensor is cheap at rockauto.com $56 autozone.com $106.

    Thanks. I live in Nevada and I notice that it works at 7 in the morning, but never during the day. But now, it RARELY works.
