the speed sensor is located in the transmission near the prop shaft. has nothing to do with the clock. you may want to check the fuses first

Many of the newer cars have more then one speed sensor. In fact some have as many as four of them. Did you disconnect your negative battery cable when you replaced the bad sensor? If you did not do that there is a chance you burned up the sensor you replaced. I hope this helps you out.

might be the sensor on the gearbox that is faulty or wire is damaged and going to earth.

Testimonial: "Hi Thanks, but its a 1984 Porsche 944 with speedo cable (mid 1985 they put in the sensor)to left front wheel (Like VW Beetle)no sensor or anything -all mechanical. It must be something simple (like me) but can't find any problems, all cable and fittings seem perfect. Can only think it might be something in the hub itself - but not sure what should be in there.... "
