Yes I'm running a YBE100530.
Any idea how the pins on the VSS correspond to the color wires from the hall effect sensor in diagram D,1?

Well that might be my answer. I don't think I grounded the middle pin.

Make sure you do it like is shown in the VDO instructions. Middle pin to pin 3 of the speedo and then to ground. Having a common ground can be important with instruments. Floating grounds can lead to problems.

I'm replacing the stock gauges this weekend. About the speedo. Can I reuse the existing cable with the new transducer? If not what type of cable should I get and from where? Am I better taking it in to a speedo shop or can I set up and calibrate it myself?

The transducer goes directly into the transfer case. No cables are used.

Calibration is very straightforward.

I'm not sure I understand. Is it wireless? How does it work? I don't think I ordered a wireless one. I got the YBE... rover part.

The transducer goes into the transfer case. You run wires from it to the speedometer.

There are no "cables". "Cables" in this meaning are spinning things that mechanical transfer the spinning of the transfer case to a mechanically driven speedometer. I'm assuming that you currently have a mechanical speedometer with a cable connecting it to the transfer case. If you currently have an electronic speedometer, then you just need to replace the speedometer. You would already have a transducer installed ans wired up.

I am changing from mechanical to electronic. What type of wire do I need to get?

See post 201 above.

Maybe I do not understand what you are trying to ask. Wire, electrical wire, it does not matter. Are you able to do simple vehicle wiring? If not, maybe you should be paying someone.

I thought the question was simple but perhaps I am not clear. I am asking if a specific wire is needed between the speedo and transducer. If so what kind of wire is it? I figured that there might be a rover part number for this or something I could pick up locally. Napa perhaps? What I am looking for is wire type, part number or gauge thickness etc etc. I can do simple wiring but I'd like to know what i am dealing with first before i start. I am considering taking it to a speedo shop to save me the hassle of sourcing a mystery wire.

Any wire will work fine, any gauge, any type. Nothing special is required.

I'm sorry to harp on this. Will this one work?

http://www.carpartsdiscount.com/auto...ml?3593=122321

or this one:

How long does it need to be?

OK, I'm not sure how to make this any more clear. YOU DO NOT NEED A SPEEDOMETER CABLE!!!!!!!!

You need YBE100530 or YBE100540. Both mount directly to the transfer case and no cable is used.

Already have the YBE100540.

I'm going to try and be more clear. Is the YBE100540 wireless? Is something connecting between the speedo and the YBE transducer? If so what is it and where can I get it? You mentioned a copper wire in a sheath but doesn't it need appropriate connectors in order to fit this on the transducer and back of speedo? If so where do i get those? I would appreciate if someone gave me an example of a copper wire that they have used or this purpose and is proven to work.

Are you reading what I've said above????

Electrical wires, like used for all electrical wiring in the truck. Any electrical wire will do. I'm starting to wonder if you are pulling my chain here.

You can used regular spade connectors if you wish on both ends. The proper waterproof connector for the sender is the same as the tail lights, part number STC1188.

You just said the magic word: Electrical wires. When you first said that any wire will do I got confused. Electrical wire with spade connectors. Got it. Sorry for driving you insane. English is my 2nd language. Wires, cables and cords sound all the same to me.

I'm almost afraid to ask. The new VDO coolant temp sender. Connects to gauge via electrical wire and spade connectors as well?

Disco I VSS compatible with LT95 4-spd?

Is the Disco I VSS (YBE100540G) compatible with an LT95 4-spd gearbox? I'd like to updgrade to VDO gauges and I'd prefer to ditch my old speedo cable and go electronic. I've searched the forum and found a few posts that touch on this without actually confirming if it will work. I greatly appreciate any info you all can provide.
