Imagine driving down the road, and you are pulled over for going over the speed limit. However, your vehicle was telling you that you were driving at the correct speed. This may be due to your vehicle’s speedometer calibration. If you have recently changed a stock part on your vehicle, such as the tires, the calibration may be off, resulting in the vehicle giving you a different reading. For example, switching to larger tires may give you a slower speed reading (which would be the case of you being pulled over for speeding). Smaller tires would give you a faster reading. In this case, you would need to learn how to do speedometer calibration.
If you have an electric speedometer, the process is simple. All you need to do is determine the distance your vehicle has to drive to properly calibrate. This number can be found in the vehicles supporting documents. Press the calibration button, which is located on the speedometer, start the vehicle, and then release that button. Press the button again, and go on the test drive. Once you have driven the required distance, press the button once more and the speedometer will calibrate itself.
After you know to do speedometer calibration, but you notice that it is still not giving you the correct reading, or the gauge is not working, the speedometer may need to get repaired.
