Having problems with your 1996 Volkswagen Jetta ?
99 jetta check engine light on, runs fine, speedometer not workin
\015 I've had it in the garage several times and have had the computer codes read and the following items already replaced:\015\012crank shaft sensor\015\012battery fuse box and battery power wire\015\012EVAP purge solenoid\015\012Oil Pressure switch\015\012\015\012The car will go 2-3 weeks between the light coming back on and appears to run fine but this latest time the speedometer/odometer stops working after driving for about 20 mins and then comes-and-goes. Any ideas?\015
O2 sensors will put your check-engine-light on. it is attached to the exhaust (closest to the motor)and rusts-out sometimes. you could try to fix it by buying the o2 sensor and use a socket-set to see if it loosens. i 'm not a mechanic but have had the issue, in the past, with the jetta II's and a 1997.the guys at vw dealers are great with info, if your a hands-on kinda guy/girl.
I took the speedometer cluster out and drove the car while applying pressure on the top plug and it worked so I then took a tooth pick and wedged between the plug and where it plugs in this has fixed the problem. so I believe the problem on most speedometers is bad plug in back of cluster
