    Speedo help please

    Hello guys pritty new on here im collecting a new car its orginally a 2.2 astra hatchback now converted to z20let has a problem

    The speedo is not working

    Eml light is on and so is traction control, pritty sure they all run together thats why there on.

    Does it get its signal from the abs or something??

    Basically im after the basic stuff to check please if i fail would a normal garage be able to do it or would it be vauxhall job with all there computer stuff

    P.s its running normal 2.2 clocks if that makes a difference and speedo stoped working a week ago thanks

    it could mean the speedo cables chaffed, when its up on stands the hub hangs down freeing up the wire. may be worth checking that

    im not 100% sure myself but check along the cable from the hub up looking for any freying in the line, the abs unit could also be causing the fault but not sure how easy this would be to replace.

    this faults quite common on the G so someone else may be also pop along with better advice

    could be a fuse, I know you can take a fuse out and the speedo, TC and ABS will stop working, dont know what fuse it is on astra.
    Please contact the HelpDesk if you wish to become a Trader. Thanks

    Hello guys got a little update collected the car today all good apart from speedo il give you some more info on it

    Its still running 2.2 clocks does this matter???

    The EML, TC, ABS lights are all on but.....

    When you first start the car its only the eml light on soon as you drive and press the brake a little abs cuts in even at low speed

    Then TC, ABS Lights both come on and pedal is normal again

    Any ideas thanks guys
