Customer Question

2014 Mazda CX-5, the tpm trouble light turns on and the speedometer fails to work while the car is cold. Everything else on the instrument panel functions normally. Last winter any time I started it below 35F it would do it. Now the threshhold is 70F. After I park and the engine heat warms thefront end it will go normal. It seems like a sketchy electrical connection. Any thoughts?

How does the TPM sensor affect the speedometer?
Expert:  Chris (aka- Moose) replied 12 months ago.

I can not find a connection between the 2 other than the circuit board inside the instrument cluster. I would address the sensor causing the TPM light to come on to see if you can address both issues.

Are they on the same harness and connnector to the instrument cluster?
Expert:  Chris (aka- Moose) replied 12 months ago.

Both signals as well as most come to to the cluster on module communication wires. There are not stand alone wires like a wire that only turns on the TPM light, one wire for the speedometer.

Gotcha. Wish I could see a point to point diagram. I'm a technician by trade just not the automotive type. Do all the inputs to the cluster pass through the ECM (ECU)?
