Do you know what was good about the good old days? I wasn't good, And I wasn't old!

Senators and Congressman should wear uniforms like NASCAR drivers so we could identify their corporate sponsors....

Just a quick update on this since I'm finally back at school and have a computer again - I haven't replaced the sensor yet because all of the replacement parts come with a new connection to the harness and I don't feel like being out in the cold cutting up and splicing wires underneath my Jeep. Currently looking for a stock replacement off of a part-out. All problems have ceased, however, and it starts on the first try every day.

OH WAIT. WHAT?

Hi Rat! Do any of these look like they would fit?

I can't really say. Some LOOK like they'd fit, but it will likely just be easier (also cheaper) to pick one up off a part-out. Already posted about one in the forums here, my old one might still exist locally but I haven't talked to the dude who took it off my hands in a while, so who knows?

OH WAIT. WHAT?

Spec out this mlink and the pictures in particular. They show the VSS and the plug. Does your plug look like that?

They show the sensor and the plug because it comes with a new plug that you have to cut and splice into your harness to fit into the redesigned sensor. Both AZ and Advance have the same thing, as well as most new replacements.

The Jeep dealer in Somerset would have a direct fit part I beleive. The sensor would be a first class sensor but it might be a bit $$$$$$$$

I was actually just there earlier today to get the recall on my parking brake done, since I blew it up last week, and I thought about asking but didn't because I assumed it would be way too pricey and I didn't wanna be tempted to just buy it because it was so easy.

OH WAIT. WHAT?

Update: Swapped in the stock VSS from a 93. Took no time at all. Started right up and now I have a working speedo, although I'm pretty used to not looking at it anymore.

Thumbs up! Since your trouble I ran into a few people around here that had the same issue and would've probably hit my head against the wall trying to figure it out if it wasn't for this, so thumbs up again!

Ok, you spend too much 'messing around' with your YJ. Time to hit the books!
