Let me start by admitting, this isn't my bonneville, but its a Series II 3800 in a Regal, so I hope you can still help me. Last night (300 miles from home) cruise control stopped working, and all I had was 1st gear, speedo stuck at 75mph (how fast I had been driving for about 500 miles already). So I drive the next 5 miles down the shoulder at about 15mph and get to a truck stop, shut off the car, and look for anything that came unplugged. When I decided to restart the car, the speed went back to 0 and everything was back to normal. I bought a speed sensor, but I have not found it yet. I have two questions:
1.) Does it sound like the speed sensor went bad or was the cause of my problem?
2.) Where is it?
This is my girlfriends car, so even if it seems fixed now, I am going to replace whatever is wrong because I don't want her having the problem again.
Thanks for your help and pretending it was a bonneville
