I have problem`s with my speedometer, with my 1993 nissan nx2000. When i drive the car from first gear on, till about more 40mph or more, my speedometer stays on 0. Even when it goes up it sometimes drops down like that then back up...Can anyone help with this problem??? It seems every time this problem happens i burn more gas...

I had the same issue. I fixed it by replacing the cluster,.

Try removing the speedo cable then reinstalling it. See if that helps.

Also, with the tranny side of the cable disconnected, try rotating the cable by hand and have someone watch for movement on the speedo. That should help determine where your problem is.

yep.. Thats your next test: Speed sensor swap.

Pay special attention to match up your sensor exactly; same color spindle, same length spindle AND same circumference. The 93 NXs was manufactured 3 different speed sensors: Long spindle electronic (all electronic), cable driven, & short spindle electronic. IIRC, the spindle colors are: One is light green, one is pinkish, and one is biege plastic. Just match yours by length & size and you should be fine.

Didn't know that some NX's had electronic speed sensors.

Are the 93's the only year with the possibility of electronic sensors? What about for the SE-R's, 93 only for them as well I'm guessing?

Yes.. The 93's were the transition year. It had everything..
Some with cables, some with all electronic and different ones between automatics & 5 speeeds..

Heres a picture of two types of 93 speed sensors (but I have found 4 other types for 93s).
Note the different shafts between these two sensors & the different color/size spindles.. Some sensors are longer and some are shorter..
You must match the sensor with one in the tranny AND the clusters must match too (especially for automatics).




Heres a picture of some 94-99 speed sensors with built-in plug (no pigtail & will not work with 93s).
Note Multi color and Multi size with some are straight and some offset.. Some long and some short..
Smorgas board....

i forgot to metion that i had my auto transmission rebuilt, as you know i t was taken off the engine..My question, do you think that when they put the transmission back on something wasn`t hooked up right>>>or maybe they didn`t put back on there tight, like i said it only works at certain speeds...

Do you happen to know the part number from Nissan? I’m planning on going to a dealership to see if they’ve got it, most likely not. It’d just make the process easier
