Is it a motor leak or gear box? Make sure it's comming from motor first

It seems that I was looking for the wrong part all this time. I have problems with my automatic gearbox. And instead of looking for the Transmission Control Modul (TCU) I was looking for an ECU (Engine Control Unit) .

My speedo stopped working recently in my 2001 vito 110cdi petrol. The odometer (milage counter) still works but the KM/h doesn't.
Can you anyone know if it is just the dashboard cluster (instruments) that have failed.

The speedometer is electronically connected via cables shindig the whole unit. So either that is dead or the sender which supplies rpm info to it is mechanically dead near its supply source. I don't know where it picks rpm info from. Does anyone know?

The ecu on the 1998 is in front of the steering, if you remove the driver side vent you will see it .There two if it is an automatic the gearbox one is smaller and on top of the main ecu. good luck|
