Hey guys, just finished an engine swap... I drove it for the first time yesterday and it ran just fine minus the idle... the vehicle idles below 500.. It would have died if I hadn't given it the gas pedal... I drove the car home and everything was good... took the car out this morning and the speedo doesn't work..

Did a little searching about the speedo... One thread said that if I had a CEL (#17) then it would be either the VSS sensor or the Speedo cable..

I have no CEL... just an inop speedo... any ideas?

fuse or fuseable link ... I had this problem before on my 99 dx; 1st time it was a bad fuse, 2nd time it was a short in the engine harness.

speedo cable.........

88-91 = cable drive, direct connection.....that connection has failed. I'll bet it popped otu of the tranny or you forgot the clip.......or knocked the clip off trying to slide the cable boot over......
