part 3, of 3..sorry...after replacing the o/p speed sensor i drove to acted a little shifted from first to sec easy nicely..before would have to go high rpms then coast to drop to sec ..where i would stay as long as i left it i was in second gear getting up to speed aprox 40..speedo said 70 not correct..i think i felt it slip tp neutral
im not 100% on that i might have instinctively put to neutral..being thats thats how i got it home prior..being coasting after shifting to neutral...4 Of 4..

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

If the speedometer issue started after replacing the trans harness then I would first suspect an issue with the replacement harness. Anything that bleeds voltage into the output speed sensor signal circuit will cause output speed to climb when it shouldn't which will cause shift issues and the speedometer to climb higher than it should.

Did the speedometer issue start after the harness was replaced or was that issue there before?
