My friend as a 91 Camaro 3.1 with Auto o/d tranny (forget which one) It has a VSS speedo on it, not a cable operated one. It takes like 15 min to have the speedo work then it reacts slow. Also the odometer and cruise do not work. Does anyone know what could be wrong? Is it a bad bround? Is the VSS bad in the tranny and it just works when warmed up? I really don't think it is the speedo head since both the speedo and odometer do not work, but then both do. Any ideas or help. I would think the VSS for this is similiar to a Fiero.

If it only works after the car has warmed up, and always when it is warm, then I would suggest the VSS. If it was a bad ground, you could have it coming on anytime, whether the car was warm or not. I say that because if it was a ground or any wire of some sort, it would eventually jiggle around from vibrations in the car to make a connection. Try replacing the VSS, that might be the culprit.

just my thoughts.
