I have a 2002 polo playa with 145000km's on the clock. The rev counter is showing 900rpm even with the ignition switched off, and the speedo started showing 30km'hr with the ignition off and each day is getting progressively worse - over the past 2 weeks this has now increased to 70km'h, with the ignition off. So when I am travelling at 70km'hr the speedo reads 140km/hr. What is causing this and how do I fix it?

Check the wiring and VSS (vehicle speed sensor)
