    Default Help with a Corsa please

    Hi, Appreciate its not a Vectra (but I do have one as well) have a 2002 1.7Dti - with an annoying speedo problem - it will not work below 25mph - it kicks in at this speed and then works fine above that but as soon as it drops down to 25 it drops down to zero - mileometer does not record when the speedo is not working and the steering is in the lighter mode. Did have the 0500 fault code and replaced the Vehicle speed sensor and cleaned up the abs/speed ring on the driveshaft. Have also removed the pod and checked the connecting plug which seems to be ok - Have fitted a replacement CDR500 unit and read somewhere that the Speed Dependant Volume control could affect the speedo so will be trying it with the radio disconnected. Have looked on Corsa sites and there are loads of threads on speedo problems but can't find anything that helps - any suggestions would be appreciated

    Do they have a speed conversion box?

    Because do they take the speed from n/s drive shaft an then it's converted to display on dash.

    Thanks for that -Not sure about a conversion box although there is a relay type thing in the fuse box - but yea they do take the speed from the Abs ring on the n/side driveshaft (even though the car doesn't have ABS)
