The speedometer sensor or VSS (Vehicle Speed Sensor) is usually located on the transmission.

1996 vw golf gl speed sensor


your model car has a electronic speedometer transducer,what it does measures rotation speed of the transaxle final drive and converts the information into an electronic signal which send to the speedometor module in the instrument panel, chilton is right my friend.yep ecu could be the problem because ecu uses the signal or input from the electronic speedometer transducer.

Sppeedometer works intermittantly


If the vehicle speed sensor was the cause you would have a check engine light and the transmission would have sifting issues into overdrive, I would think you just have a failing tachometer stepper motor (tiny DC motor) that drives the needle..

Speedometer doesn't work


No it would not be the speed sensor, you would have other problems. I suggest you just have a tech that is failing.

Check the Speed Sensor, it is located in the transmission next to the drive shaft. That is usually the culprit.

Speedometer


You need to find out if your speedometer is cable driven or electronic. If it is cable driven there will be a cable running from your transmission to the back of the speedometer. Sometimes the cables lose their lubrication and break. Usually pretty cheap to replace.

If your speedometer is electronic there is a sensor on your transmission that sends a signal to your speedometer. Either your sensor (called a Vehicle Speed Sensor or VSS) went bad or your speedometer quit working. The sensors are usually inexpensive....the speedometers are NOT! Last one I needed I bought off eBay and purchased one with the lowest miles I could find. If you ever sell the car you have to mark the title that the speedometer is not correct. I usually keep the old speedometer around along with a record of the mileage of the replacement so I can always figure out the cars true mileage if I need to.
