    The speed pulse should be taken from a ABS sensor

    If it's not on the gear box mate, which i think it isn't as it has ABS so i would say it's located in the front left hand side hub

    obviously with the car having abs each hub will have a harness going into it will the hub with the speed pulse have extra wires?

    hopefully the answer to this will be yeah as it will make for easier identification

    Sorry all the sensors have 2 wires going to them

    If a sensor was at fault causing your speedo not to work the ABS light would also be on
