Hi. Haynes says "either unscrew the collar and disconnect the drive cable or disconnect the wiring plug from ther speedometer sender" - I guess depending whether you have a mechanical or electrical speedo system.

SOURCE: i need a new speedometer cable for a 1991

I found it for $68.32 at the following site: http://www.man-a-fre.com/clearance/clearance.htm part number: 83710-60171
You may also try calling Tacoma Speedometer at:
1-800-6-SPEEDO. I have been told that they will custom build a cable for around $40 and ship it to you.

I have a 2001 VW Passat. It seems like it is possessed. The automatic window will go up without pressing the button. The speedometer shakes when I am stopped and shakes until I reach 65. Door locks


Best place to start is having the battery tested & replaced if needed. Then the battery cable connections cleaned & re-tightened. This is better than sprinkling with Holy water for a car.

2005 VW passat 1.9 TDi "immobiliser activated" on display


There may not be any other way to fix it except to replace your instrument panel. That's where your immobilizer is located. Or you could try this:

Try cold-booting the car. Remove both battery cables from the battery. Short the battery cables together (away from the battery) for about 15 seconds. Reconnect the battery. No guarantees - I found this info at tdiclub.com.
