magnetic or inductive proximity switch, must have some sort of speed sensor fitted, not OEM so just pull it off

Ok. I just wanted to make sure it wasn't part of the ABS or traction control.

Thanks.

Your funny, may I suggest getting a workshop manual and parts books, before spending to much time asking Q's and spending money.

There are a lot of web based sites for these.

Your landy is just a bit rough around the edges, it will polish out.

Good luck and enjoy

Td5 right, first to check is the injector loom (harness) these leak oil into the ecu. Again check the UK web sites for this.

Hall or read indicator.
I would like to install this item through the backing plate of the handbrake looking to the inside of the brake drum.

Could have also been for an old style GPS that used to have a speed sensor...

That actually wasn't a joke. I was under the impression that TD5's have a rudimentary electronic traction control system. I was wondering if it was a 3 channel setup like the early Fords have.

You should be able to open up the ecu and clean it out, wisely choose which cleaner, something plastic and pcb friendly.

Check on the harness price from the UK, I do not know if the harness can be cleaned out enough.

Also more Td5 advise will come the UK as Not very many Td5 savvy here

Good luck

I replaced the injector harness on mine for that exact reason. Oil migrates down the harness between the wire & insulation, all the way to the ECU. Strange, but true.

You may experience difficulty starting, reduced mileage and loss of power among other issues.



It's pretty easy to swap out. After a couple weeks, clean out the ECU plug again as the last of the oil in the main harness migrates out.

New harness should cost you about $100

Don't by the Britpart or Bearmach. Go Genuine for something like this.
