Driving home from work last night, my speedo decided to drop for no apparent reason.
Since then, it hasn't become intermittent or started working again- just dropped out and hasn't worked since.
All of the other gauges on the dash appear to work correctly.
When I turn on the ignition, the speedometer needle does raise up a little bit, like it should do normally, so can't be the gauge.
I also hear the speedometer reading is taken via wires coming from a sensor on the gearbox, but I'm not sure where the sensor is and if its easy to get to so I can make sure the connection is ok, or whether I need a new speedo cable/wire
Can anyone help me solve this problem?
Hopefully I wont need a new gearbox (I read somewhere else on here that theres a possibility the sensor gear has sheared off inside) or a complete new wiring loom
