How do i hook up my speedometer with microtech?

hey guys, im getting sick of not having a speedometer. I cant seem to figure out how to hook it up... I have the wires from the transmission leading into the car, and i need to know which wire comes from the trans that is for the speedometer, and which wire do i hook it up to??? thanks in advance...

Your way off, the speedo is mechanical. The cable runs from the back of the tranny to the back of the speedo. It screws in on both sides.

Is it just the speedo that isn't working or are other parts out as well?

check your connectors by the passenger side and make sure all your grounds are good. I had the same problem with mine. It ended up just being a bad ground there by the passenger side area
