Hi

I have strange problem with c3 as I had the well know problem with the speedo in conjunction with loosing the power steering so I decided to replace the speed sensor located at the gearbox.
Now the power steering works as it should however the speedo only reads the speed if I press the clutch I don't have to press the clutch completely only about a inch to get the speedo working

Does anyone knows what the problem could be I did the BSI reset but that didn't help.

Hopefully someone will be able to help me with this one.

Cheers

Did you get to the bottom of this?

I think more information about what faults were present before the sensor change would help.

Did you ever have a working speedo?
