Default Speedometer Sensor

ok..i finally went to auto-zone today for my speedometer problems..and they narrowed it down to my speedometer sensor... to give you a short reminder: it wasn't working at all and sometimes it would go up and down sporatically..and the HUD was just reading 0mph all the time..does it sound like this sensor is going to fix both the speedo and the HUD? It'* the one located on the tranny thats like 42.99

I got it the keyboard your posting from is hooped, no biggy.

Yeah I'd say its the speed sensor if its affecting both the hud and the speedo.
and $42 sounds ok?

they actually didnt' do any diagnostics... i just simply explained to them what the problem was... I mean, if the sensor doesn't work..it should be fully refundable..right?

Side note: Alien, I had some spare time, so i fixed the * problem in these posts I'll keep an eye on this thread for you.

Good luck finding (and fixing/replacing) the sensor

Ryan, I'd very much suspect the VSS sensor. Other than that, it'* got to be a wire or the PCM.
