Speedometer went from being intermittent to not working at all. It would start back working when you shut everything off and started it back up but now nothing at all. I replaced the VSS with no luck. What else could it be? Is there a way to test the VSS?

speedometer works intermittently. Just works when it wants and doesn't most of the time. Tried replacing the Variable speed sensor. Didn't work. Trying changing out the gauge cluster didn't work.

Speedometer is inaccurate at any speed. Mechanic told me to buy newspeed sensor and install. It goes on top of the transmission, back center of engine... easy to do. Can order one at rockauto.com
