unless your speedo is wobbling at speeds, its not the linkage...

the fault lies within the dials themselves as posted in the other thread ( http://www.corsasport.co.uk/board/viewthread.php?tid=372631 )- if the signal from the dials is fluctuating or not correct, or there is a bad connection at the rear, then the ecu will throw 24

change the sender by all means, get one from vauxhall, there about 15 or somehting, but I really doubt that will sort the problem out

1993 will have the VSS in the clocks, not the gearbox. the VSS is a common reason for the engine to die at junctions etc...

I would try a new set of clocks first, scrappy for 10.

90375764 is the VSS, its a plastic driven gear that sits in the gearbox

either drives a cable or goes into a transducer and wire.

yes but on a cable driven setup, the ecu recieves the signal from the dials themselves, being cable driven & all... so if the speedo itself is working, its still the dials which will be the cause of the fault.

I was getting VSS on the gsi some time back, just replaced the dials, fixed.

Since i bought this car it has had code 24 and its cuts out at junctions. I have spent hours looking at wiring diagrams trying to work out what was wrong.

...and your telling me changing the dials might fix it

Will give it a go

No thats just a speedo driven gear nothing to do with vss.

As stated the vss is electrical not mechanical.

It either screws onto the top of the gearbox on cars with electronic speedo.
or
It is part of the clocks on a car with cable driven speedo!
