Alright guys,

I have absolutely no idea about what the hell is going on with the truck lately. About 2 1/2 months ago, I started the truck up and went for a drive down the street. Everything was fine until I looked down, the speedometer's dead. I went home, checked the VSS and replaced it. The same problem, there was still no speed showing and just for the hell of it, I replaced the VSS again and still no luck. Later that day I went to use my wipers, the wipers won't work at all. I have no idea what could cause both of these problems to occur at the exact same time. And before anyone posts anything, I replaced the VSS 2 times, I checked all of the mini-fuses, and checked the connections to the VSS under the chasis. Now, are there any relays, wiring, misc. fuses, etc. that I should check? The thing that I don't understand, is how these both went out at the same time. Plus, there's no way they can be tied into each other...is there?! If anyone has any suggestions, comments, questions, etc. about what I can do, please leave them or PM me. Thanks guys...

did you try a differant gauge cluster? The wipers may just be coincidence.
