GTV speedo issues - please help!
My speedo has been playing up for ages now, it either works or drops dead and reads zero. Of course this stops the odometer from ticking over which is extra annoying, the rev counter is fine though. I've recently tried replacing the speedo unit with a used one that I purchased on ebay which I was told was in good working order. However this made no difference (i.e. the speedo still only worked intermittently) and furthermore on this replacement unit the rev counter was not calibrated and read zero when the car was idling and hit rev limiter at under 5k revs, which makes me suspicious as to whether it ever was fully working in the first place.
My car's a late 2001 model (51), I've read through the threads but can't find the answers I'm looking for, can anybody help following?
1. Would my sender unit be at the abs sensor? and where would I find it?
2. Could it be the sender unit at fault if my abs light is not on? (and never has been - abs does work though)
3. Is there any way of diagnosing what's at fault; sender, speedo unit , wiring?
4. Has anyone had the same problem and managed to fix it?
Any help would be much appreciated.
