Just plugged in a new speedometer set.... and despite a back-light coming on, there is no info in the odometer, and I don't think the speedometer is sending/receiving the Neutral gear signal, as the fuel injector does not spray gas like it would..... HELP!

1) The ODO part of a new speedometer assy. will not HAVE any info in the ODO part to display or maybe all 0's because the ODO mileage was stored in your old assy that you took off.

2) the speedo assy has no part in sending or receiving the neutral position switch signal as far as the engine goes.
It merely has a light that shows the position of the switch.......which may or may not be the same signal that the safety circuit for the engine is seeing.

3) If you hit the start button and the starter runs, turning the engine over, then it is a really good bet that the starter safeties are working right. If they weren't, the starter would not run at all.

The starter continues trying, however engine won't turn over
An accurate description is REALLY important.
If the starter is turning and the engine parts are moving......then it IS turning over but won't fire.
So.....which is it.....nothing is moving or the engine is "turning over" but not firing off ??
