Newbie with speedo problems
« on: June 23, 2013, 05:38:25 PM »
Hi I'm new to this forum I have a 2001 ford galaxy tdi150 I have had the car a couple off weeks now when I bought the car the speedo was jammed at 65mph

I have vag com so I plugged it in and done a Dial test all dials worked Barr speedo it was jumping on the spot

Tool dials apart oiled up the speedo needle and worked it back and forward as it was tight now it moves freely

Dail test take 2 now all dials work when tested on vag com

Road test speedo still not working scanned with vag com and still has a g22 speedo fault

I have the dancing fuel gauge also I read some where that these are linked together 

Any ideas? Thanks scott

IIRC vehicle speed sensor faulty or faulty connection to it.
Located on gearbox.
2009 Kia Sedona GS In Black 2.9CRDI 183PS. 5 Speed Manual WAV.
2003 MK2 Galaxy Ghia In Solid Black 1.9 TDI 115PS. 5 Speed Automatic.

Upgraded Eberspächer booster heater  to independent heating with 7 day timer.

With VCDS lite (full version) need a code clearing or want to scan for faults in the north kent area, PM me.
All for a pint of Strongbow.

Is there any way to test the sensor or just fire a new one on?
