I think you mean the Vehicle Speed Sensor(VSS).It is located on the transmission,somewhere on the portion of the housing that contains the differential and axles.Most speed sensors are a 2 wire unit,and often the wires are tightly twisted to reduce electromagnetic interference(this will probably help in identifying it)

It should be on the back of the transmission near where the driveshaft goes in. Buy a new one, jack up your truck and look for the old one on the back of the transmission

SOURCE: input/turbine speed sensor circuit

Your speed sensor, is located on top of the transaxle, near the starter. To access it, remove the battery, then remove the battery tray (4 10mm bolts). You will see wires coming from the lower oxygen sensor, and they snap into the bracket that holds the speed sensor in place. The actual speed sensor has a 2 wire clip on it, and is held in place by the bracket and a 10mm bolt.

I have a 2003 Chevy Trailblazer with a malfunctioning tachometer and speedometer. What is the likely part I need to replace?


Sounds like a bad speedometer sensor. Usually located on the transmission. The only way to fix the speedometer is to replace the sensor.
The Variable Speed Sensor (VSS) has failed. You will have to get it replaced. Both are driven by an electrical signal sent to the cars computer by the VSS, and converted to SPEED, and DISTANCE driven.

Cannot find vehicle speed sensor. Location on tailshaft housing has a factory installed plate covering it. Also,cannot find wire loom or connector for it. What the?


E150?

Vehicle Speed Sensor The Vehicle Speed Sensor (VSS) (Figure 36) is a variable reluctance or Hall effect type sensor that generates waveform with a frequency that is proportional to the speed of the vehicle. If the vehicle is moving at a relatively low velocity, the sensor produces a signal with a low frequency. As the vehicle velocity increases, the sensor generates a signal with a higher frequency. The PCM uses the frequency signal generated by the VSS (and other inputs) to control such parameters as fuel injection, ignition timing, transmission/transaxle shift scheduling and torque converter clutch scheduling.
