Brother turns up with his 2004 Polo 1.9 SDI with no PAS and that many warning lights on that he should call it Blinky. Fixed the PAS once I had dismantled most of the right-hand side of the car to get to the filler cap, simple one that apart for the special fluid required but a quick trip to Halfords fixed that. PAS warning light now off (and working), that left the ABS light, and the non-working speedo. Vagcom said there was no response from the ABS pump/ECU, wiring checked out fine so £20 replacement from ebay will fix that one. Checked the wheel sensors whilst I was at it and they all seemed fine.

So that left one thing, speedo, and could I find the sender to check? Nope, it's there in the wiring diagram, number 47, but on the car itself I couldn't see it anywhere around the gearbox at all! Would some kind soul be able to put me out of my misery and let me know where it is?!

Oh I know the answer to this one as I changed one last year but as you have fingers why don't you google it?

Clean and check the 3 fuses on the top of the battery for the abs, its normally the reason for abs failure on these cars.. the speedo takes its reading from the abs so fix that and it should all work.

You know that's exactly what I thought, hence no sender. There's a lot of chatter on this which is not helped by confusion on what people call the differing marks on the various forums like uk-polos.net etc.

I'm fine with Golf's but know nothing about Polo's, so thanks for confirming my thoughts!

What is his problem with me, the other day I ask a question get the reply 'you have finger google it' but it seems I can't suggest the same.
I haven't got a clue who Galileo is or why he needs to have an attitude with me, yes my reply on this post was a bit childish but why the abrupt reply on the other post?
