Welcome, I'm Chris (aka-Moose).

  • THE TIME I AM ONLINE, 7 days a week normally online around midday and then late evening until early morning.
  • PHONE CALLS are automatically offered by the website normally after my first reply. I complete calls where I feel it is a benefit.
  • UPLOADED LINKS I SEND, if I upload dropbox links, they will open on a home PC, often they fail on a work PC, on a phone use the box on the top right of your phone screen for direct download.

While driving does the transmission shift poorly?

Does the cruise control work?

NO TRANSMITION SHIFTS FINE AND NO CRUISE CONTROL DOES NOT WORK

Will your scan tool do more than just read codes?

Monitoring the ABS and PCM are they showing an accurate speed signal?

SAYS MONITOR/DRIVE CYCLE TEST NOT COMPLETE

J1850 INVALID OR MISSING DATA FOR VEHICLE SPEED
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
NOT SURE WHAT THAT MEANS

Thanks, ***** ***** your tool will not do what we need. The ABS produces the speed signal and then sends it out to the components needing a speed signal. Since the transaxle shifts fine that means the PCM is getting a speed signal. So the concern in this case based on the process of elimination is going to be the PCM or the instrument cluster faulty. We just need a better scan tool to further diagnose.

YOU CANT DO ANYTHING FOR ME?

I can only tell you it is the PCM or instrument cluster to blame. You need a better scan tool to further diagnose yourself DIY.
