tried to wire up a dash with electronic speedo to my '96 LS which was cable driven. i tried a speed sender from a 1L 12V Corsa which didnt work atall then i found a sender from a nova 1.4 spi which dus work but the speed is out. so how do the corsa SRi's get the speed? do they have a sender that bolts onto the gearbox cus ive noticed on the later vauxhall ecotec engines theyve done away with the cable/electric sender so how they get the speed?

Cheers, Chris

I have a 93' 1.4 SPI(60 bhp) and it has no rev counter, I can get dials from a 94' 1.4 MPI(82 bhp) and this one have rev counter. Would this be an easy swap or what, ie do both models have cabel/wire driven speedo??

mine is an eleccy speedo, i think it uses a gearbox sender as when i reverse i get a speed reading here also compared to if a cable driven one was on a car in reverse it would read 0.

I think the electronic dials must use a sender screwed into the gearbox. When I fitted my digital dash, I didn't use the sender that came with it, I took the pulse from the original Corsa one.
Not much help though.

They get the signal from an ABS sensor.
