What is a speedometer cable?

A speedometer cable is part of the speedometer setup and mainly connects the om-board rotating magnet to the engine. Each time the engine turns, the speedometer cable turns with it, the number of turns are registered by a magnetic which runs counter to the turns of the cable; the magnet is directly connected to the onboard speedometer. So, the faster the cable turns, the higher will be the speed. However, because the cable undergoes millions of revolutions each year, it is bound to fail all of a sudden but when that happens you need to get the cable replaced.

How to know that the cable is not working?

When the speedometer cable fails, the speedometer will fail with it. So, you'll notice that despite your car moving the needle in the car does not register any speed. Since the cable is such an essential part of the setup the speedometer is rendered useless without the cable. Fortunately, the cable is cheap and easy to replace in most vehicles. The only thing you need to keep in mind is to buy a cable that's precisely meant for that vehicle because the cables and their structures vary from one car to the next.
