94 VW golf 1.8 auto speedo not working / -replaced speed sensor (under battery) -replaced cluster

Start by checking the wiring to the VSS (sensor) . Plug has 3 wires. One of the outside wires should have 12 volts when ignition on. Other outside wire should have an earth of no more than 5 ohms impedance. Centre wire should give an earth pulse when gearbox is turning. If live and earth are good, but no pulse, then sensor or its drive gear is broken. Problem is usually sensor suffering ppor earth connection. Ok to cut earth wire before sensor and atach to sutable earth point.

1994 GRAND MARQUIS Odometer stopped working, tridometer aswell

If the odometer and tripmeter stop incrementing their mile values, then the VSS or vehicle speed sensor is bad or has become disconnected.

Vehicle Speed Sensor OPERATION The Vehicle Speed Sensor (VSS) is a magnetic pick-up sensor that sends a signal to the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) and the speedometer. The sensor measures the rotation of the transmission output shaft or the ring gear on the differential and sends an AC voltage signal to the PCM which determines the corresponding vehicle speed.
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Disengage the wiring harness connector from the VSS.
  3. Using a Digital Volt-Ohmmeter (DVOM), measure the resistance (ohmmeter function) between the sensor terminals. If the resistance is 190-250 ohms, the sensor is okay.

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Raise and safely support the vehicle securely on jackstands.
  3. Detach the connector for the VSS.
  4. Remove the VSS retaining bolt and remove the VSS from the transmission.
  5. Remove the driven gear retainer and the drive gear. To install:
  6. Inspect the O-ring on the sensor and replace if necessary.
  7. Install the driven gear and the retainer.
  8. Place the VSS into the transmission.
  9. Tighten the retaining bolt to 98-115 inch lbs. (11-13 Nm).
  10. Attach the VSS electrical connector.

Do you have a check engine light on? If so you need a scanner to get the codes and then you have to go to the dealer and he will tell you what the codes mean. My repairs with this vehicle and this type of complaint were shift solenoid,Vehicle speed sensor (VSS) Transmission control module(TCM). With the exceptionof the VSS all other items I described should be serviced by a Transmission specialists.
