Nothing has been replaced , i think it could possibly the speed sensor but i cannot find where it is located and the best way to test if it is working.The speedometer was working then just stopped,the rev counter is very erratic
Expert:  Peter Zavarelli replied 1 year ago.

O.k.,is the engine running properly and transmission shifting properly with this issue here?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
no problems with the engine or transmission
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Waiting for your response. as i said in my answer to your question engine runs fine transmission if all okay
Expert:  Peter Zavarelli replied 1 year ago.

I apologize for the delay.

This usually doesnt indicate a fault with the speed sensor.If the engine and transmission are operating properly then this usually indicates the speed sensor is o.k.If it was a speed sensor issue then the transmission would shift and engage incorrectly causing this here.I suspect this is a fault with gauge cluster itself needing removed and repaired or removed and replaced to resolve this issue here.I have seen this fail before requiring replacement for this fault here.This will need to be tested further to verify this is the cause but this does sound like the fault here.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation.
