Speedometer

Hey there everyone, went to the mechanic for an oil change and belt replacement. Since coming back from the mechanic, my Speedometer doesn't work, and at times the D4 light would blink. I heard this is a VSS issue, but does this mean I need a new one? Or is there something else that can be done.


--EDIT--

My speedometer was working fine up until the Oil Change.
NO CHECK ENGINE LIGHT

It needs to be replaced, the part can be had for less than 100.00 on Ebay. (You need the electrical part.)

But wouldn't it be the blame of the mechanic? It started after they did some work.

The VSS is right next to the oil filter, so in theory they could have bumped the wires but since it is a know fact that the VSS goes on Legends not sure that you can get the blame on the shop. You need to take a look yourself or go back to where the oil change was done are look at the wires going to the VSS with your mechanic.

P.S. There aren't that many people on this site so it doesn't do any good to bump multiple times a day.

Alright, but it happened RIGHT after the Oil Change.

There is a chance that it could have come unhooked, when getting the oil change done. But worst case scenario is that the wire was split from the power steering belt, highly unlikely though.

If you are able to have a look yourself. Put the car on jack stands and look underneath right next to the oil filter and follow the wire harness to see if it got unhooked.

Like I said, if you don't want to look at it yourself go back to the place you had the oil changed and ask to look at it with them. Just tell them that the speedometer quit working after the oil change and you did a little research online and that the VSS is next to the oil filter....

The VSS is located just left of the oil filter where the rag is in this picture (the VSS has been removed).
