Question about Mazda Cars & Trucks
The code points to the input sensor/turbine speed sensor. Is it at all a smart idea to try an auto salvage yard before I buy a new one? Also is there other names for this part, I think I have witnessed others calling it a transmission speed sensor, or vehicle speed sensor. Are these all the same thing, Is this a hard part to get to and replace? What kinds of things might I try before buy a new one. Any advice would be a huge help.
a vehicle speed sensor ( VSS) reports on the vehicle speed to the ECM, speedo and TCM
the turbine speed sensor reports on the input shaft speed so that the TCM knows when to change ratios against the VSS reports
the sensor is readily available from dealer spares , transmission shops , e-bay or the wreckers / junk yards
talk with an accredited transmission specialist shop

There is more than likely just a sensor that needs to be replaced, Either that or there is a problem with the wiring somewhere. How does the vehicle behave when shifting?

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.

That code also reads as: Transmission Input Speed Sensor (G182): Circuit Malfunction
The sensor is located inside the transmission. Not exactly a DIY type of job...
