Your car's speedometer is often overlooked, but it is one of your vehicle's most important safety and operational features. The speedometer is precisely what it sounds like: it is the part of your car that displays the speed at which your vehicle is traveling. When your speedometer starts to malfunction, you must have it serviced and repaired right away. Not only can an inaccurate speedometer reading put you at risk of being pulled over for a speeding ticket, but it can put you and other drivers in jeopardy.
Most speedometer repairs are simple. Depending on the condition of the problem, it may simply require an ECU replacement, fuse replacement, or trouble code clearing. Other times, your mechanic may need to install a new speed sensor to fix the issue.
Regardless of how the problem originated, you should have your faulty speedometer fixed pronto. Do not compromise the safety of others, yourself, and your vehicle. We welcome you to bring your car to Scruggs Automotive today for speedometer repairs and recalibration.
