Speedometer

I have a 93 xj 4.0, and my speedometer shows no speed. When I start it up you can see the needle move up but once you start driving it doesn't move at all. Any ideas?

Re: Speedometer

The first place I would check is the speedo sensor. It is located on the transfer case. There is a gear in there that spins and helps calculate speed. If it is installed wrong it won't work. ...or if it is broken.

Re: Speedometer

I haven't done anything to the jeep. Its all stock, and I bought with the speedo not working.

Re: Speedometer

It could be as simple as a broken wire on the speedo gear sensor.  Can you check it to see?
