Speedometer intermittent or US.

Post by Tailwheel »

Hi Guys, Have a problem with no speedo or odometer, but sometimes intermittent. Got underneath and found the VSS [speed sensor] quite loose like it was 'unscrewed' from the rear of the box,, wiring looks OK, tightened the fitting but no luck. Suspect the VSS is at fault so ordered another one [only one available in Melbourne]. Sent an email to one dealer to order the part as they don't advertise a phone number for parts,, but still no response. Could anyone please advise a more reasonable Isuzu dealer in the Perth area? I think I will be in the Perth district for at least 14 days.

Thanks all,,,,
Regards,
Tailwheel.

I would recommend Major Motors. I needed some clips for the heater panel in the centre console and they had them very quickly although from Melbourne might take a bit longer.

Maybe the sensor is a magetic induction item and could have magnetic metal particles on it's sense end. If so remove and clean. Mightfix it when tight. It a hall snsor item then it counts teeth and can suffer same problem.
