Default Help with NB issues.

Ok cruise control is not working, no light even on the button on the dash.

This is what I notice that is strange.

Battery light is on on the dash.

Speedometer is wrong...really wrong. 45mph reads at over 90mph on the dash???? It also makes the odometer read almost twice the distance it has gone.


I'm in Florida and leaving for home later today so If I could figure this out soon that would be great!

The 1992 I have is driven on a cable, is the 2000?

Well replaced the VSS sensor today and the cruise now works. But spedo is still about double what it should read? Nobody seen this before?

Never.. Wonder if they have install something weird on the singal line similar to one of these?

Worst case you could buy one to correct your speedo back to the correct speed. They are popular in the bike world, but can be used on cars the same way. I know people who have used them to convert cars ONLY in MPH to KPH.
