Question XF Digi dash

What is the problem with this?

Dash is the XF Fairmont Ghia digital. The speed registers 6 to 10 kph when stationary. Not a good thing. I think it could be clocking klms.

The car isn't very factory, I'm thiking of replacing the sender and wiring to it. What do you think?

to me it sounds like the sender unit, or perhaps some problem with the cable? maybe the gears are rooted?

The magna is nearly dead...i need a new car...AGAIN!!...why did i sell the EL??

Yeah I was hoping somone had experienced this before. I don't like to pass on to an auto elect. work that I can do my self.

It's probably as simple as the wires touching the extractors.

When I get a chance to look at the car again, I'll let ya know what it was.........
