    Default Speed reading device

    Hopefully someone can help me find the best product.
    My Peugeot Partner decided the speedometer doesn't want to work.


    My mechanic has tried everything he can think of to get it working again.


    Refurbished ECU, Speed cable, Sender unit from gearbox but nothing.

    Is there any one on here who can tell me of any plug and play devices that will throw up the current speed I am doing?.


    needs to be a large enough display to see from the windscreen.


    Many thanks in advance

    As the car does not move more than a few feet during the MOT, How would they ever know ?

    Probably an mot failure.

    A Bluetooth obd device to a phone should do the trick try torque

    It's a MOT failure if your fitted Speedo does not work

    You need to get to the root cause of the fail but by the sound of it it would suggest an instrument cluster fail. many garages don't have diagnostics equipment to deep dive an issue especially if they are not a specialist as to get the equipment necessary nowadays is prohibitive cost wise. WHilst within the industry the fault codes have now been comonised the way of communicating these faults for further diagnostics has yet to happen. On the balance of probababilites it's likely a instrument cluster fault from what you have described but a second hand one will probably need re programming which a general garage might find difficult.
