    :( Just asking for someone's knowledge on this little but fu__ up problem I have. My miles gauge is not working and the engine is holding at a certian RPM it's wierd thou. I checked the altenator which is what i thought would be the problem but it was'nt so then I checked the speed sensor and that was'nt the problem. With the speed sensor the speed gauge goes crazy going up and down like crazy. I checked all the cables nothing seems to be loose. It's also burning my SRS fuse and the license plate fuse both are 7.5 amp and as soon as I put in a new fuse connect the speed sensor, turn on the car and bingo it's burned again. The car runs good, but still feels like it's missing something the RPM gauge is the only thing working. I know it's loose force because I race a freind of mine that has a coupe and I would beat him everyday, ever since that short circuit I have he's been able to keep up with me!!!!!

    If some knows or it's happened before to someone let me know please :(
