Speedo will not work with new sensor fitted

Speedo hasn't worked for some time, was told it was the sensor on gear box. At the onset of problem the speedo would work intermitently and then died. Is there a seperate fuse for the speedo or is it run of the main power fuse. Could you help please.

Regards
Shayne.

If you haven't installed or bought a new sensor, then have an auto electrucian checkout the ols sensor first, the check for this is really simple and is listed in the 80 series manual. if the sensor is faulty then buy a new one if the sensor is ok then you have to check the integrity of the electric connection (wiring) to the instrument then if that is ok then check the instrument, for the previous solution suggested- There is no Bloody speedo cable as in a turning one only electrical.

If you can try take off the dash and remove the dash unit and check to see if the speedo cable is attatched properly

the speedo is controlled by the VSS sensor in the box and it is not all that expensive
The rev counter ( tacho) is controlled by the ECM as it get is impulses from the ignition control module

There is a gear that drives the sensor gear much like the old speedo cable gear.
If you connected the sensor and the check engine light went off, chances are the sensor is working.

does the speed change at all? does the speedometer if you noticed is working? if the speedo is not working then the problem is your speed sensor on the gear box is not working and that is the reason the automatic transmission stayed on safe mode. renew the speedo and will work ok.

Sensor most likely. It's located on the tailshaft of the 700. You might check for wiring damage starting at the sensor and working towards the wiring bundle it goes to.
