    I got a OBD0 to OBD1 car.

    I have a STD hatch with a SIR II motor everything converted to OBD1.

    My Speedo Works even when it throws code 17.
    Once in a while after I drive for like 15+minutes I get Code 17 Vehicle Speed Sensor (VSS). When I first start my car when engine is cold the Speedo tweaks until the engine starts to warm up then it stays put..

    I am using a 90-91 si cluster and I just check the wiring the wiring is correct on the ECU harness.

    I tried to clean it and put it back on that didn't help wtf can be wrong..?

    One more thing after I reset my ECU it goes away but come back again after a while!!

    I pulled the cable out that is inside the plastic shell of the speedo...but put it back..

    That peace of shit still don't work.. I am using my STD cable maybe thats why its not working right because the STD hatchback cable is fucken gay or something..? :rolleyes:

    If your speedo is registering on the dash, the signal from the cluster is not reaching the ECU. There is either a short, or no signal being made at the cluster.

    You guess is as good as mine on how to test that wire to look for signal... Maybe a voltmeter on the wire with the front wheels on jackstands?

    What was it? I'm converting a 89 DX over to OBD1 and don't want the same problem.
