so basically, the VSS assigned both the speedometer and odometer values ?

I thought there was no relation between them, as the speedometer being often offset from the actual speed of the car, but the milleage staying accurate ?

Unplug the VSS and the ODO will stop working. The ODO readings are based off the speed of the car. Nice hint for those leased cars who have mileage issues :beer:

As or it being accurate due to speed issues, I can't offer much help with that.

I just found out that it's no longer related to VSS, but ABS module since MkV.

Hope this help others,

I'll try to find more info about odometer VS. speedometer.

Wait, for that lease option where you disable the ODO. How viable is this? I've never leased because of fear of the mileage issue.
