Question about 1996 Volkswagen Golf
I have a 1996 VW Golf that has been in the shop 3 times now for what the computer is reading out as a bad speed sensor... Check engine light comes on when speedometer goes out...
I have had 3 brand new replacements put in, in the last week and still no avail. I am unable to smog my car due to the check engine light being on.
I dont want to spend anymore money jsut for the computer to keep saying its teh speed sensor...
Is there anything else that could be causing this problem and could anyone tell me where else to start looking?

If it's a 2.0L, then the coolant sensor would be an easy fix. It's between the Air box / engine (on top of the coolant flange on the end of the head). If you do that, you probably should do a thermostat. Usually it's recommended to replace the thermostat when you do a coolant temp sensor, but that's up to you.

Have you changed the tires on the car to a different size?
If not then you probably need a new vehicle speed sensor.

take the dash assembly off(about 4 screws) and take out the light bulb that illuminates that "check engine" sign.
