stand at the front drivers tire, Peer over just below where the throtle cables connect onto the side of the throtle body, Now look straight down. It's that round black thing bolted to the top of the motor with a wire coming out over to a connector under the intake manifold.

directly below the throttle body on the drivers side of the engine block. Has a white connector attached to a single black wire lead. I had to remove the black plastic piece that connects to the throttle body and the air filter housing, in order to see/get at it. Easy fix once you find it. Haynes manual shows it in a different location, so don't confuse yourself looking at the diagram.

If the light was flashing when it came on, then it means your engine is misfiring.
A solid light can mean anything from a loose/faulty gas cap to a transmission issue.
This light comes on when the computer detects a fault of some sort in its diagnostic tests. If it keeps detecting this issue, the light will remain on. If the light turns off, then it has detected that the issue may no longer be present.
In order to find out what the exact reason was for your light, You need to have your car computer scanned to retrieve the code that the computer would have stored when the light triggered. Most garages will do this free of charge. The code will tell you what may have caused the light to initially turn on.

The Vehicle Speed
Sensor 1 (output shaft rotation sensor) is mounted to the extension case
(from the outside of the case). The sensor outputs a pulse signal which
is transmitted to the TCM where it is converted to vehicle speed.
The transfer clutch
drum is connected directly to the rear wheel driving propeller shaft.
Vehicle speed sensor 1 on the AWD model detects rear-wheel speed.
Speed Sensor 2 provides vehicle road speed information to the ECM. The
ECM uses this data to properly determine ignition and fuel delivery
curves. The sensor consists of a reed switch and magnetic rotor turned
by the speedometer cable.
One rotation of the
magnetic rotor opens and closes the reed switch four times, producing a
digital signal which is converted to vehicle speed by the ECM. The
sensor operates whenever the vehicle is moving with ignition ON. As the
transmission rotates, the speed sensor sends a pulsed on/off signal to
The speedometer uses VSS 2 for it's signal.
Hope this helps (remember to rate this answer).
