Speedo Problem

Ok I was on my way back to work after lunch and my speedo stopped workin.. I also noticed that my electric seats and radar stop workin also. I know i have a short somewhere for the seat and the cigarette lighter. I had a speed calib installed about 3 or 4 weeks ago. Would the fuse for the seat and cig. lighter also affect the speed calib or is it something else that made my speedo stop workin?

Re: Speedo Problem

I think you are right. It's been forever since I installed my Speedcal installed by I believe it hooks into the back of the cigarette lighter somehow

Re: Speedo Problem

I had a dallas speed calibrator installed on my car and my speedo stoped working it was due to the crimp the kit used to power the speed cal unit came loose, I would check this first. The power comes from the aux plug in by the shifter you can use a tester to see if the wire is hot. Maybe the wire just came loose a bit. UNDO THE NEGATIVE BATTERY TERMINAL before screwing with the wires.

Re: Speedo Problem

He had to hard wire mine.. He said my terminals were brittle and just crubled when he put it on and hard wired it.

Re: Speedo Problem

I've welded a screwdriver to an upper intake before...
One hand on the positive terminal, accidently touching the upper intake with a screwdriver with the other. Quite fun...

Re: Speedo Problem

hmm was the Speedcal the last thing you added to that fuse line? It's gotta be something to do with that. Maybe it's not properly grounded?
