There are two speed sensors, one in the transmission, and one on the spedometer see here.

To locate the sensor buy the Haynes or Chilton manual, there you will find diarams and procedures for all your car service and repair, that is a must if you want DIY.

A wheel speed sensor?

They are located at each individual wheel.

An output or input speed sensor?

They are located on the drivers side of the transmission. They are yellowish white in color and look identical to each other. You will need a 1 inch socket to remove and replace them.

The input speed sensor is towards the front of the transmission and the output speed sensor is located toward the rear of the transmission.

Ford explorers speedometer just stopped working. everything else is working fine what could cause this


If your speedometer stopped working try replacing the vehicle speed sensor (VSS). This is a fairly easy task and found on the underside of the drivers side compartment near the transmission housing. It has one small retaining nut and a plug-in two wire connection. Spread the clip, pull the connection apart then pull old sensor out. Put a small bit of transmission fluid around the O ring (new). Install in reverse order. Part cost about $18.00. If that dosen't do it then the plastic gear inside the sensor housing may be worn. Hope this helps you.

Where is the speed sensor located


If you mean the vehicle speed sensor that sends signal to your speedometer, it plugs into the transmission near the back of the housing, fairly close to where the driveshaft attaches, probably on the driver's side about half way up the housing.

Where is the output speed sensor on a 01 hyundai santa fe?


I wanted to post a reply to this because I also have a 2001 2.7l V6 4wd and my output speed sensor was directly underneath the air filter housing/box and NOT "deep behind the transmission" as the poster said above. It was very easy to get to, and took me about 10 minutes to replace. The part number for mine (genuine Hyundai/KIA) is 42621 39052 if that helps. And this is NOT the 02 sensor mentioned in the previous post. What we're talking about here is the Output Speed Sensor on the transmission. You may get a code P0720 from your CEL. You can also download TSB 05-40-011from hmaservice.com for more info and a diagram of the location. Hopefully this might help someone in the future. Good luck!
