    Emissionwiz,

    99 VW Cabrio 2.0L (electronic). Jiggled wires behind dash and it works intermittently. I did this after I found the after market CD changer sloppy install had fallen on top of fuse box (shakes head, from day one had problems with that install, but was a Christmas present and really nice changer)

    Chances are they may have piggy backed a fuse that runs the Speedo, isolate that fuse and look for a power tap on it, the diagram of the fuse box should be inside the fuse box cover. I have seen all kinds of problems after aftermarket radio's alarms were installed, the people that do the install are paid by the job, or what we call "flat rate", they rush so they can make more bucks, often cutting corners and screwing up the fuse box in the process. If you find that they caused your problem don't let them slide, make them pay a dealer to repair the problem, then you know it's done right.

Check on top of transmission,you should see a small harness. Pull it out and see if all the wires are intact. If they are go to a local junk yard and pull out the same piece and install on your car...did that for my car and it worked...good luck

Speedometer doesn't work and it doesn't change gears right


vehicle speed sensor on the transmission, it fails and the speedometer will not work, it could affect shifting because the computer does not know the speed you are traveling

My speedometer doesn't work, where is the wire located? it's a 2003 grand caravan se.


Your speedometer is controlled from your transaxle which is controlled by the computer. Usually a bad VSS sensor causes the speedometer malfunction. Are you getting any codes?

Digital dash does not work properly, gauge just flash and speedometer goes up to 20mph.


The digital speedometer went out in my 88 continental as well.. I had to go to a junk yard to find a whole other cluster.. 1 year later, it doesn't work again. (-_-) I could afford to put a new speedometer in, its just hard as hell to find one for the 88.
