Jumping the brown/white to brown or to a good frame ground bypassed the speedo ground and sometimes helped restore awd also. Ground shouldn't have gone through it to begin with for the awd.The one you probably looked at was from the awd connector browns to a common ground. Long thin wires that could loose ground and this was a good fix. Hope you can get the speedo fixed and save some $$ also.
If Radio Shack still has some of these transistors I'm going to sure try it. I'll still probably short the 2 wires to make SURE the AWD works. Thanks for your prompt answers - I get impatient easily and this had me going, but your answers are helping my anxiety level.
