    Speedometer and odometer both stoped working

    1989 4x4 Vanwagon manual transmission.

    The speedometer/odometer/miles counter all stopped working.

    Any ideas?

    could it be the speed sensor or a wiring issue?

    Thanks

    Your speedometer is cable driven. Check the drive cable for damage particularly the 90 degree fitting at the transfer case.

    I had the same issue and it turned out my speedometer cable was shot. If you are in PDX I highly recommend this place https://www.speedometerserviceportland.com/. Steve charged my $60 for a new cable and he made it in a day. Now my Speedo and odo both work!
