    Speedometer needle stopped working

    Sometime back my Palio Stile's speedometer stopped working all of sudden which also impacted the odometer to stop :( Luckily the RPM needle was working fine so i knew at what approx speeds i'm travelling.

    Found out through mechanic that there is speedometer sensor that is down right at the Gearbox which probably is not working. Got this changed recently and its up and running smoothly now

    It costs around 1k.

    The original speedometer sensor that came had a marking of "Padmini"

    Will post the pics of the sensor in a while.

    Old Speedometer sensor "Padmini" branded







    New Sensor is a different one but still shows "Made in Italy"

    Even my palios odometer stopped working again after the repair. This time thinking to change the unit itself.

    Btw from where you sourced this unit?

    Thanks Rudrah! Even my car's speedo is behaving erratically, at most times its fine but stops working all of a sudden. I was thinking maybe its a loose connection with the speed sensor / cable. I have the same quetsion as Channa's..where did you source it from?

    Channa, do you mean that your Speedometer needle works but the odometer has stopped moving?

    Similarly, is it that the Speedometer needle stop working and does not move as you speed up? Or is it just the odometer stops working?

    If speedometer needle isn't working means its the sensor gone bad and you would have to replace the sensor.
