Mitsubishi Triton 2004 Problems

No car is perfect, but we've gathered everything relating to the Mitsubishi Triton 2004 reliability here to help you decide if it's a smart buy.

Why does the speedo in my 2004 Mitsubishi Triton bounce up and down and make a weird noise?

Answered by CarsGuide 8 Feb 2021

The cable that drives the speedometer is a likely candidate for this in some cars, Aaron, but mainly older ones than your Triton. The cable will eventually run out of lubricant, at which point it can bind up and won’t turn smoothly (the cause of the hyperactive needle) while also making a dry squawking noise (the budgies). But, from memory, your car has an electronically-driven speedo, so the cause is more likely that the speedometer itself is worn out and causing internal friction (for the same set of symptoms).
