Hi Mathew,im stew a mechanic here in australia,i can tell you this,the road speed signal for the ecu comes from the speedo itself,not the wheel sensors,gearbox drives cable,cable drives speedo,speedo operates dial & speed signal for ecu (input to ecu),i would be checking you have a speed signal from speedo to ecu,you say the speedo reads ok(im assuming needle indicating speed works ok)but i would be looking for speed signal,might be easier to see that speed input is arriving at ecu,cheers stew
