Diagnose help - Tach/spedo dead

If I missed it forgive me I did a little searching and couldn't find anything relative to my situation.

Both my tach and speedo on my mk3 are dead. I read up and found that usually it's the speed sensor, and luckily the previous owner had pulled one from another mk3 before having it go to the impound. Anyway, either the speed sensor I installed is not working still or there's some other issue (maybe with the cluster) since the tach doesn't work too.

The rest of the gauges work fine if I remember correctly (fuel and temp) and the odometer works fine as well.

If anybody could give me next steps to look at I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks!

Try and borrow a speedo from a friend to eliminate it. Try that first and keep us posted with the outcome.
