RE: 200TQ speedo shakes, odo stops

Check the sender unit on the transmission. It's a black plastic finger
that goes down inside, with a sort of clip on top to hold it in place,
and a connector (obviously). Hard to describe, but easy to remove --
unclip, rotate and withdraw.
You can open it up, inside you'll find a magnetic reed switch, mine was
knackered. Replacement can be ordered from an electronics component
supplier - I think I used Digi-Key.
