Well I solved my wiper problem (they wouldn't turn off). It was a faulty relay which on the 92 325IS is buried deep under the deadpetal footrest in the drivers footwell.

Now I have a speedometer problem. No movement until I hit 3500rpm in 5th (not sure how fast that is but must be around 70mph) then the speedo shoots to 110 mph and seems to increase with increased speed (but indicates way too fast). When I back off to about 3000rpm in 5th it drops like a rock to 0.

Where is the speedo drive on the tranny?

Thanks, Jamie
