My speedometer and odometer quit working. I replaced the speed sensor on trans. Checked resistance on the stepper motors in cluster. Replaced cluster. Check for voltage going to speed sensor plug=0. Also traced wiring back to firewall. What else can I do?

Do you
have the same problem?

I got readings that jumped from 0 to 1.5 but had to turn the wheels at higher speed to get anything? So what does that mean?

I am having a hard time finding the VSS. Is it on the engine firewall or in the cab?
