Wonky speedo / tacho

Hey guys

The last few nights the speedo tacho has been wandering around the place unable to read correctly, It only does it on 1 stretch of road though for a few kms of city driving then returns to normal - Is this a prob with the sender



Thanks



Ash

Re: Wonky speedo / tacho

So does anyone have any ideas at all - Could it be the VSS (vehicle speed sensor) , This is where i will start looking any way


Could it possibly be that the area i drive through has a high magnetic field and is affecting both rpm and vehicle speed pulses at the same time

The ecu gets pulses from the coil / dizzy dosent it


Any Ideas
