Does the speedometer work at all?

With the speedometer cable, the speedometer and tachometer are independent of each other.

Did you confirm that you have a wire in the wire harness for the tachometer? If there is no wire for the ignition signal, the tachometer will not work.

im not sure how to check for that. At this point Iíve tinkered with it a bit and Iím pretty sure the Speedo issue is actually inside the transmission. Iíve been looking around for a guide on how to open up the housing where the cable feeds into the transmission as well as replacement parts but I have yet to find anything. Correction I found one thing and that was the speedometer gear inside the transmission that turns the cable is held in place by retaining springs? Not sure what to think of that let alone how to fix. Any input would be helpful. Especially about the tachometer. I would love to get that working. I thought the sr5 cluster would be plug n play according to this thread. https://www.yotatech.com/forums/f116...06/index6.html
