Where is the wiring to the speedometer located on a 2000 alero


The wiring may not help you? The instrument cluster gets serial data from pcm for speedometer based on vehicle speed sensor input to the pcm. Does the vehicle shift ok when driving, sometimes a problem vss can effect shifting. Are there any applicable trouble codes? Some of the national brand autostores will check codes for free.

Could be the instrument cluster is faulty? Could be problem with vss? Could be problem with wiring for the vss or pcm?

Why is car trying to turn off?


this code refers to the Vehicle Speed Sensor,VSS,first thing to do is have the code cleared and road test, if code returns the VSS will need investigating , very common for the wiring to be damaged, so check the wiring and connectors if all look fine change the VSS ,a workshop manual will show exact location on your particular vehicle

My 1996 S-10 Blazer will not shift sometimes and the ABS light comes on. This problem goes away after I drive it for awhile. The code I get is P0502 (vehicle speed sensor low imput). Would a bad speed...


A faulty VSS (Vehicle Speed Sensor) or related wiring can cause both of your problems, trans and ABS. If the computer doesn't know the vehicle is moving, then it won't shift the trans. If the ABS controller sees wheel speed, but not vehicle speed, it will turn on the ABS light. The VSS is located in the rear transfer case housing. But remember, it may be the VSS, related wiring, a faulty speedo buffer (usually located in the dashboard), ECM, or even the reluctor on the transfer case output shaft. You may want to have a shop scan "data stream", or even have them diagnose the problem.

Misfire on my 2000 mazda mx5


Change the plugs and plug wires first. If still a problem, troubleshoot the coil packs that the plug wires fit into, located at the back of the engine.
