DESCRIPTION:

AutoMeter vehicle speed sensors generate the signal you need to make installing an AutoMeter electric speedometer in your vehicle quick and easy. Compatible with GM and Chrysler transmissions with a 7/8" -18 threaded speedometer cable output, this vehicle speed sensor outputs a 16 pulse per revolution (PPR), 12v square wave signal. Featuring a mechanical cable output, this sensor has the ability to retain the mechanical cable in applications with mechanically driven cruise control.

QUESTIONS:

I PURCHASED A #2489 ELECTRONIC SPEEDOMETER WITH A #5291 SPEED SENSOR ... ABOUT 5 YEARS FOR A CLASSIC RESTO MOD TRUCK. THE SENSOR IS NOW LEAKING TRANS FLUID OUT OF THE CABLE IS THIS DUE TO AN "O" RING FAILURE OR AN INTERNAL SEAL FAILURE?

Asked by: GREYIRON1950
Thank you for your question. Unfortunately this is due to an O-ring within the transmission. From this O-ring failing it causes the fluid to leak out through the VSS as there are no seals to stop this on the unit.

I have a 95LT1 which requires a signal to the VSS. I also need the cable for my mechanical speedo. Can I use this unit?

Will this fit a 200r4 transmission

Asked by: GeorgeLeos
This speed sensor would thread onto the transmission to replace the speed cable on GM/Chrysler Trans so long as they have a 7/8" -18 threaded speedometer cable output.

I have a 4488 speedometer.do you have a speed signal generator that will fit a TH400 transmission ? I do not need to have any access for a mechanical cable ? picture and or part#?

Asked by: dave69c
The 5291 would act as the speed sensor, replacing the mechanical cable and allowing an electronic speedometer to wire into it.

I have fitted a 4L60e transmission with np203 transfercase in my chevy blazer 1979 , but the transmission need VSS to shift gear will the 5291 can send pulse to my ecu ? I know this part is 3 wire if i connect 12v from swich & another 2 wire to ecu?

Asked by: Haybert
This product is designed to send a signal to our electric speedometers. It will not work with your ECU, that requires the OEM sensor.

Hi, I brought a variable reluctance 8 pulse for my Cat 3208s. It is not accurate enough for the Veratron Enginebox and the RPM is fluctuating up and down. Will this work and be more accurate. I am getting 120rpm fluctuations at present.

Asked by: Decsnz
This particular sender is a square wave, 16 pulse. It would be hard to declare whether it would work and be more accurate on your application. On applications that are compatible, we've found that 16 pulse senders are more smooth at very low speeds (under 10 MPH) compared to an 8 pulse sender.

I have a push on speedometer cable to my original dash. Installing the invision digital dash. Do you have an adapter like the 5291 for push on?

Asked by: Philserpas
InVision dash would require an electrical speed signal, if you have a GM you would need the 5291, but if you do not, could you send us an email at service@autometer.com.
