Replaced input and output speed sensors for erratic speedometer. Now the speedometer remains at 0. Anyone have a suggestion on what else could be wrong?


input and out put speed sensors tell the TCM and the ECM the difference between engine rpms and transmission input roms so that the correct gear ratio can be selected
A speedo sensor reads the out put shaft (drive line ) shaft and refers to road speed for speed and odometer readings and to calculate the fuel consumption rate
it is possible that you have replaced the wrong sensor
Talk with an accredited transmission specialist shop and have the problem diagnosed

It could have went out, but you might check plug, or grounds. If just the odometer and speed quit, you could have a bad vehicle speed sensor in the transmission

I have a 2003 ford escape & the digital odometer doesn't work correctly


Have the dealer do a speedometer accuracy test. They have a special tool that can electronically read the speed and then compare it to the readout of the odometer.

''06 nissan urvan odometer doesn't work Everything else does.


You may need to replace one of your speed sensors. My best bet: have an expert run a computerized report for you. Autozone as a simple one for free. They will let you know in 1 to 2 minutes which one of your sensors has failed. New sensor carries most of the times a 2 year warranty.
