The speedometer of the Toyota Celica translates data about wheel movement into a figure that represents the speed at which the vehicle is travelling. If the vehicle's speedometer begins to malfunction you will receive an inaccurate reading of the vehicle's speed. A faulty speedometer can be a serious safety hazard. You can fix the issue by replacing the faulty speedometer with a new one.
