Starter Change Causes Speedometer Fail???
I just changed my starter in a '97 SL2 and when I drove it the speedometer was completely gone. Also noticed it would cut out at high RPM's in 1st and 2nd gears. (If I wrapped it out in higher gears it would do it also)

Today on my way to work I got my speedometer back for about 5 minutes but then it wen away again. The car seems to run smooth now.

Pretty sure something happened when I was battling the starter as there was no problem until the starter repair. Any help? Please don't tell be I have to take out the starter again! That wasn't fun! :cry:

You probably disconnected the VSS. It is located on top of the transaxle right above the axle shafts, straight up. Things will not run right with that signal disconnected.
