Question about 1992 Volkswagen Cabriolet

1 Answer

Where to get a new speedometer wire?

My speedometer stopped working a few weeks back. Today I dismounted the intstrument panel to check if the speedometer wire was connected, which it wasn't. The part that connects the wire to the back of the speedometer is broken. Took it for a drive to check if the wire rotated at all, it didn't.

Do anyone know where I can get a new wire for a 1992 1.8l 2H Cabriolet?

The speedometer and odometer have stopped working. They failed and came back a few times before failing totally. Any ideas?

If it is the speed sensor in the transmission, you should also have problems shifting and the check engine light should be on.
If it shifts normally, the speedometer has failed.

Abs light stays on & A/C stopped blowing cold air

The BCM (body control module) is the problem, have it replaced, this is a common issue on your van.
