Speedo sensor help
pekwah1 - 28/11/17 at 08:50 PM

Hi Guys,

I have a digi dash which is not a brand anyone will have heard of, but my speedo pickup bracket failed and looks like i've killed the pickup as below:

It obviously just picks up off a magnet, but are these usually the same kind of sensor, i.e. can i just buy another one of a particular type and just chop and wire it into my existing connector?

Thanks in advance.

It depends if itís a Hall effect sensor or reed switch, how many wires are on the connector?

2 wires sir

Have a look at the Greengauges website, part of Speedy cables

Two wires suggest it may be a variable reluctance sensor (a coil of wire with a magnet) rather than hall effect. Have you tried measuring continuity across the wires with a multimeter? If it's open circuit then it's dead, otherwise they tend to have a resistance between a few hundred of ohms up to maybe 1 or 2 kohms.
