Re: speedometer works off and on??????? (golfguy77)

well you just paid for a speed sensor when you didnt need one. Guarantee if you scan your car right now you'll have the same fault. That fault stores automatically when the car is off because the sensor isnt sensing Rpm. Once you start the car the sensor starts working. That fault will always be stored in early mk3 cars. The VDO clusters had alot of problems, get a new one or used one from a junkyard. Guarantee this is your problem. I work for vw so if you have any more questions lemme know http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

I get the same code dude, so dont think he's a tard for replacing the sensor. If it's not the sensor, it's the instrunment cluster.
I too have replaced the sensor, and mine's a '97 (mine's automatic tho). Is yours auto?

My fault never went away, as a matter of fact, the fault is ONLY there because I haven't replaced the cluster (solving the problem). After that, I'll be more than happy to check if it's there or not.
Also, I wasn't meaning that you called him a tard, but he's definitely not one for doing what 90% of us would do with that fault code (replacing the sensor FIRST, being the cheapest possible solution).

If I'm reading that right, every car would have that fault.

Re: speedometer works off and on??????? (TRUEBELIEVER)

could it be the chassis ground? someone told me to check it out because my speedo works and then stops working when i go over bumps in the road.
nobody ever told me where too look though, anyone know where this ground is located?
thanks
