Just get Antony to check it out . . . :cry:
Sounds like the speed sensor output - check the g/box connector - the loom has red conduit.
Since you've had a little rainfall your way, probably it's had some moisture ingress.

Mate I'll be locking it up if I was you,
you carnt have it coming and going as it pleases.














Seriously check and clean all the plug's gearbox, under bonnet, under dash & speedo head.
Also check speedo transducer in the box.
