You must be patient since it takes a while for the device to arrive.

It is well worth it and I have been very happy.

So yesterday I accidentally cut my VSS wire but the speedo and odo both still work??? I'm surprised and just wondering "why?".

I also hooked up the MPGuino to one end of the wire for the heck of it and it still reads, although I think it's a bit high, but I'm not sure because the weather is warmer now. Still, getting mid-50s around town easily seems off, which I figured was due to being connected to one end rather than the electricity running through and being split.

As of this writing, I haven't reconnected the VSS wire ends due to (mostly) not having the proper tools and also because my speedo and odo (and MPGuino) are still working.

Any help would be appreciated!

Also, does anyone have calibration info for a pre-1995, non-XFI Geo Metro?

Is there a parts list and schematic available? I don't mind putting it in a larger remote box and using strip board.

I bought one of these last week and just got it installed today. I'm anxious to put some miles on with it. It was very well packed and fired right up. Thanks!

Sorry, no blue star
If you wanted, you can donate the difference between our prices to DCB.

Thanks for your order, it is shipping out tomorrow. Check your email for a delivery confirmation number.
