Ok, my speed sensor was replaced once before I got my car. I have installed two pairs of Indiglo gauges...The first time, the stupid guy I let install them took off the "Hot & Cold" needle and it hasn't read right ever since....

I am starting to see Indiglos as pointless...They are fun, but pointless...And I think probably 70% of the time something ends up breaking something or screwing something up..

Anyways, now to my question. I am looking for a new instrument cluster...Is the "speed sensor" located in the cluster?(I don't wanna get rid of my messed up "H & C" Cluster if the Speed sensor is new in it...Or is the speed sensor part of the engine or electronics?

My 2nd question is, are the TYPE I Coupe & Sedan Automatic Instrument Clusters the same? Will a coupe one work in my sedan? Thanks guys...

The speed sensor is near your front right tire, at the bottom of the car. The only thing to worry about is weather the guage pod will fit the sedan. And from owning both a sedan and a coupe, I can tell you that there is no visual difference for each cluster. They should be the exactly the same. 4 plug ins in the back ( I think) and away you go with it..... someone sorrect me if I am wrong.

hey matt,

The speed sensor is not in the cluster, and all type I gauges are identical. Execpt that the 94-95 gauges had different font letters and pointier needles.

Also, you can just replace the Hot/cold gauge alone, not the whole cluster. Each individual gauges on the cluster can be removed by 3 screws on the back of the cluster. I did that with my fuel gauge.
I have a spare H/C gauge from a 93 cluster, I'll sell it to you for way less than a whole cluster. give me a offer, Let me know.
