location of speedo cable from transmission

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know where the speedo cable can be found on the transmission side? And is there a connector somewhere along its path to the ECU?

My ABS and Spoiler warning lights are on. I am hoping it's due to a loose connector in the speedo cable path.

There is no cable. It is done electronically. I have asked Peter this and he did not know off the top of his head. One of these days I will see if I can figure it out from the wiring diagrams.

Each wheel hub has an electronic speed sensor for the ABS. I thought perhaps the readings from all 4 were used for and average speed measurement. Peter thought it was the right front. This is all a guess until someone traces the wiring.

But you may be on to somethig as to the cause of your warning lights since both need a speed signal.

From the instrument cluster Diagnostic Section of the Service Manual:

Speedometer: electrical signals from the ABS/ASR or PSM are converted and emitted in digital form.
This makes sense that both would go on if the ABS/ASR signal was not there. I would check fuse B9 (second row from the top ninth fuse from the left) (15A) first. After that it would have to be a broken wire or bad ABS control module.

Thank you TP and Loren for the replies.

The fuse is intact.

Looks like another expensive repair bill for me. I was hoping it could just be a loose connection - I had a similar problem on my Mazda and it was all fixed in a twist of the wrist.
