Speedometer not working have replaced vss

What make , model an year vehicle ? The VSS - vehicle speed sensor is an input to the PCM , The PCM sends this info to the instrument cluster over serial data bus , just like oil pressure ,coolant temp. etc... If the engine runs fine an vehicle shifts good the VSS isn't bad . I would have it hooked up to a professional grade scan tool to see if instrument cluster is receiving the speed info . If it is the gauge is bad . GM had bad step motor's in the instrument clusters 2003 - 2006 . Other make vehicles also !

Recently replaced speedometer sensor on my 2005 Chevy Tahoe speedometer still does not work do you know how to fix it

Yes , replace the stepper motor inside the instrument cluster . The speedometer sensor as you call it is actually a VSS - vehicle speed sensor. If the transmission shifts good an engine runs good it's not the VSS bad. You have to know how it works to fix it . The VSS is an input to the PCM/ECM - engine computer , The PCM/ECM calculates engine speed then sends this info to the instrument cluster over the serial data communication bus . GM has had bad stepper motors in that year vehicle . How to repair GM Instrument Cluster Speedometer Gauge Stepper

Your LCD display is out of order. You can try to find one new on eBay. Chinese brand is cheaper, but VDO is better. After buying the LCD display you will need to install it.

Im not sure if my 99 A4 quattro is compatible...(see details)

It's not going to work. The car's computer has to be coded to the instrument cluster in order for the computer to drive the gauges. This recode can be done by a dealer, but you'd need to get one for a manual car, and I believe your car would have had to have the trip computer feature in the first place in order to work. That's one of the biggest headaches with our cars - there are so many interconnected parts that require specific matching in order to work, and I don't think you're going to be able to do it.

In the past I had the same problem on my car. I disassembled the instrument cluster, and there is no possibility to change this small display, because it is an embeded construction.
Your problem is the instrument cluster out of order !
If you want to solve this problem you must buy a new instrument cluster which must be encoded with a VAG diagnosis tool.
Success !
