Aim for the transmission Vehicle speed sensor, seems to be the cause of this problem in the majority of these cases
I'm using GermanAutoParts' terminology here, though I've heard these referred to by different things elsewhere. My speedometer in my '03 Jetta 2.0L Auto acts up sometimes, the needle going all over the place. I've read up on the problem and people seem to agree that it's the "vehicle speed sensor." When I look for that part, I get several options. If you look here at GermanAutoParts, for example, you'll see a Speedometer Sending Unit, a Vehicle Speed Sensor, and a Transmission Vehicle Speed Sensor. Which should I be aiming for? Thanks much.
Thanks for the reply. The folks at the dealership suggested that I go with the speedometer sending unit so I bought one. We'll see what happens, but I CAN'T FIND IT!
Can someone please tell me where to locate this part. I'm going nuts. Again, it's a 2003 2.0L automatic.
