How does a digital speedometer work?

The basic idea on how a digital speedometer works is that the equipment senses how fast the wheels are spinning.

WhAT is the speedometer cable attached to?

It depends on the manufacturer. Most rear wheel drive vehicle speedometer cables connect to a gear in the transmission "tailshaft". Front wheel drive vehicles may connect at another location on the transaxle or they may use an electronic Vehicle Speed Sensor (VSS) that sends a digital signal to the speedometer, in which case there is no speedometer cable. Other vehicles, such as the old VW Beetle, used a speedometer cable that connected directly to the front wheel. Unfortunately, there is no way to list what method was used by all vehicles.
