That's my question for the day. On my way home from work today, my speedometer dropped from 65 mph to 0. About a second later my CEL turned on. Nothing else seems to be wrong with the car. So what do you guys think? I'll research this in the FSM in the meantime. . . thanks for the input.

inside the speedo, there is a speed sensor teeling the ECU that the car is rolling over 10mph. so you gotta change the cable...

thanks, I also read it recently in the FSM. Damn, the Duct Tape fix is only good for a couple thousand miles.

OK, I priced a speedometer cable at the local (to my job anyway) dealership. They want 50 bones for a brand new Shaft - Flex Speedo cable. Expensive? lemme know. . .
