1997 S10 2.2l Manual 2wd Speedometer not working! , advice needed please (Part 2)
Part 1 is in another subform because I didn't realize we had this one. Here is what was done.
1st. Stock Radio/CD Player didn't work, at this point Speedometer WAS working, so I went and got a replacement CD player from the junkyard.
2nd. Installed said radio which included hooking up Green Wire on big white connector. This caused I *think* my speedometer to stop working.
3rd. Checked the VSS (Velocity Speed Sensor) both clips where broken so I used zip ties to hold the wire to the sensor, also I unplugged the green wire on the white connector from the radio, still no speedometer
4th. Reset the computer in the car by disconnecting the ground and letting the car reset (I think that is now its done) did nothing
5th. Installed the stock broken CD player back into the car WITH the green wire connected . . . that did not fix it
6th. Reset car, unplugged green wire from radio that did not work
7th. Took cluster out of the car, checked the pins on the console, some looked low so I gently bent some of them up and put the cluster back in, everything works BUT the speedometer and odometer
What I'm thinking is the problem is the following:
1st. I've burnt up the speedometer with the other radio
2nd. The VSS doesn't work anymore
3rd. Because of a LOT of research it could be my ignition key on the column that might be causing all my problems.
ANY more advice would be HIGHLY appreciated! Going to the junkyard tomorrow to get a spare cluster, ignition switch AND VSS in hopes one of those thing will fix my S10 truck.
Again any other suggestions would be highly appreciated!
