VOLKSWAGEN GOLF speedometertachometer not working

We just bought a 1995 Golf III 2.0L. The speedometer and tachometer do not work. They seem to vibrate at zero but not move beyond that. The odometer dial lights etc. all seem to work fine. Since I last wrote - I have seen the speedtacho work once. Then back to zero next time I started.

I took my wifes 1996 Golf GL into the dealership because the instrument cluster was acting up and the gauges would work and then not work.

Help...Im getting very tired of this Golf and now I dont want to ever buy another VW product.

My check engine light is on. speedometer works once in a while but for the most part stopped working. The fuel gauge is also jumping and acting screwy. tachometer works fine and temp gauge is fine.

VOLKSWAGEN POLO III 6N Need Help with my 1998 Polo Open Air

Hi all I purchased my Polo Open Air about 5 months ago. It has about 170000 Kms on the odo. The car works fine apart from some signs of aging which naturally tend to show up after 14 years of use.

VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT B5 New Passat Owner with a TON of Electrical Gremlins Please Help

Ok I bought a 99 Passat with the 2.8L V6 and 5 speed manual tranny. First off it RUNS great but youd never know it due to all the electrical problems. First problem. I can be setting at a light and my tachometer glitches and dives up and down even going below ZERO yet the car engine is idling perfect. When I drive it normal it spikes down occassionally but if I get on it the tach seems to lose control.

I have an update. Hope this might help some of you draw more conclusions. I ordered the speed sensor but Im waiting for it. I think I know why my speedometer is 20mph off. Like I said I havent driven it very much. When Im driving it the speedometer works fine but is off on the correct numbers. HOWEVER when sitting idle at a light my tachometer is at ZERO and my speedometer is well below the 0 mark.
