I have several connections between the speedometer and transmission. How do I know if the car if the cable is properly connected?

Thanks JJ I'll give it a try. Will that work at each connection?

Thanks JJ. That was the plan. I was just wondering if it was the section I put in for the cruise control.

Thanks JJ. I haven't tried the cruise yet, but am concerned how to check the speedometer cable that goes through it. How do check that part of the cable? It has apiece that goes from the transmission to the speed sensor. Then the cable comes from speedometer,which connects to the other side of the sensor.

just disconnect the adapter/cable from the transmission, and connect the drill to it..
that will check the whole cable and all the connections,, every thing..

set the drill on reverse/counter-clock-wise, for forward on the speedo..

Thank you JJ. The speedometer worked until I installed the Rostra VSS. Using the drill is part of my plan.

I tried turning it with a drill, it moved, but the cable now is coming apart on the bottom. So I'm going to get a shorter cable. The one that's on it now, has 2 or more feet sticking out under the hood.

Thank you JJ. I'll try replacing the cable first.

I have a replacement cable that has one square end. Does the square end go in the transmission or speedometer?

Thank you JJ. Is there a way to make the round end into a square ended one?
