I made a post awhile ago about my VSS needing replacement. The mechanic said the cluster needed to replaced. Someone else on here said just replace the VSS sensor. Well, another mechanic said that if it comes on and off then it's prolly not the VSS sensor but an electrical problem (which is proly why the first mechanic said to replace the whole cluster)
The reason I am bringing this up again is because my headlights low beams went kaput. My high beams still work and my ambers still work but not the low beams. I'm thinking it's also an electrical issue and not bulbs. If it is not bulbs... what kind of problem do I have on my hands and how the heebles am I going to fix it? I'm running out of money starving student.
Is the harness in your VX chopped at all or is it still virgin?
I had a funky speedometer in my VX (on and off) and it turned out the plastic clip on the connector at the VSS was broken off, and the plug wouldn't stay connected. I stole a new plug off a donor harness and it worked good as new.
Another friend was having the same problem - his turned out to be a bad VSS. Water had gotten down in the electrical connection and corroded one of the male pins on the VSS - it ended up breaking off in the female pin of the plug. We installed a new VSS and I pulled the broken pin out of the plug and it was good as new.
Do some sleuth work and see if either of these are your problem. There should be three male pins in the VSS, all the same length.
The VSS still hasn't come Ebay seller has 100% rating. I emailed an annoyed email but no reply. What are the odds? (Seems they were less than one in a hundred... but I guess not) Hopefully it will be here by Friday! SVOboy, I am planning on coming up! Wombosi might be coming too. Or next weekend, since the damn VSS ain't here yet. And I should really order the o2 sensor as well given the high mileage of my punctilious pugnillious.
