Gday to all
Fg649 built 2004
My speedo sensor located on gear box where the speedo cable plugs in has a damaged wire
Will this prevent the speedo functioning ?
I have replaced both speedo cables , one of which was broken ,yet the speedo still does not read
All help appreciated

Hi,
No noises in the cluster?
You will have to start at the gear box end and see if the speedo drive is turnimg.

Everything is as it should be exeption the damaged wire which has pulled out of the sensor attached to the cable end
Quoted around $1200.00 to replace by mitsubishi ,seems to be non existent by other suppliers20210215_173520.jpg20210215_173520.jpg
Thoughts?

Hi our truck has a wire going there too , what it is for i do not know.
But the speedo should still work because its cable driven.
You might need to take the peice off the gearbox and see if it drives the cable.
