Speedo cables connect the driveshaft to the speedometer and play a vital role in your ability to gauge road speed. Whatever the car you drive, you’re sure to find the perfect speedo cable at CarParts4Less.co.uk.
As your wheels spin on the driveshaft, this causes the speedo cable to rotate. The spinning cable turns a magnet inside the speedo cup. The faster your car goes, the faster the magnet rotates. This creates an electrical current that moves the pointer in response. The cable is calibrated with the speedo cup magnet so that their rotation speeds correspond with that of the pointer. If you notice your speedo pointer start to waver or stop moving completely, the cable may be at fault. Squealing noises behind your dashboard are another sign that the speedo cable needs replacing. If this is the case, a warning light should appear on your dashboard. To stay safe and prevent speeding fines, replace worn speedo cable for less at Car Parts 4 Less.
