I have a 97 ford taurus, aftermarket system and all, and of course my speedometer now doesnt work.

I know that the speedo and the radio are on the same fuse but it used to work all the time with a 15 amp one in there. Now its once in a blue moon my speedo will work with my stereo. My stereo works fine, im not blowing any fuses, and now i have a 20amp in there. My question is the wire to my speedo like fried and I should go back and re wire, i dunno if there is another quickie fix to the problem but in case there is before i rip my dash apart again

Sounds like a loose wire or bad speedo unit. Either way, looks like it's back to ripping the dash out :blink:
