The sender for the speedo is on the back of the gearbox. If you jack the car up on the rear passengers side and have a look at the gearbox from the back of the car you will see an electrical plug facing towards the rear. Its in the elements a bit so the wires can get broken or corroded.

His 91 will be cable driven...

check the speedo assembley on top of the gearbox..have you removed the cable and tried it on a drill and see if the dash speedo works?

once I was changing battery on my mr2 and forgot to tighten connections, coz of that speedo was jumping up and down and sometimes wasn't moving at all when engine was running idle. after tightening all was ok.
Check battery connections. Don't know what, how and why doe it affect speedo, probably those who have electric sensor one. My one is rev2 1992.

Just awkward mate.. There's just a 10mm bolt but mine was bet in and took hours to remove!

It sits on top of the gearbox..if it is the sensor it' cost me €40 for a sparepart

Check stephenmason.com he's the fix for your sensor on his site

no it's not a sensor anyway because i have another scarp 91 mr2 and it's got the cable yolk, so its the same, turbo is in the way quite abit but i'll get it out somehow, thanks for all your help

If its not the sensor , cable or speedo clocks then it's likely the little grommet that runs the speedo sensor inside the gearbox

I hope for your sake it's not

Thought that this was the issue with mine and had a chat with Joe o Reilly who said it was a pig of
a job and required dropping the gearbox to get at! He only seen it once before!

Thankfully this was not the issue with mine
