Where is the Speed Sensor located on a 2005 Nissan Altima?
My car was put to test on a diagnostics machine and the speed sensor code came up. My car seems to be shifting while I am driving it and also I have to hold my key inorder for my car to crank, when before I could just turn the key and it would crank up.

Re: Where is the Speed Sensor located on a 2005 Nissan...
An engine speed sensor is mounted on the vehicle’s
crankshaft and is usually where the speedometer gets its data, whereas
wheel speed sensors are located individually at each wheel or axle generating
a signal that changes with wheel speed. It is important that these two speed sensors are always in good working
condition to provide accurate data. If one of them gives the wrong signal,
control functions of the engine ECU and ABS ECU will be largely compromised.
So to have a long-lasting speed sensor, cleaning it every now and then
is necessary. Simply wipe off the grime it has accumulated with a towel.
Or it’s okay to carefully blow-dry it with compressed air. Anyway,
it does not need to be hospital-clean, it just needs to be free from major
debris and metal media. If this didn't do it for you call autozone and they can pull up pictures of it for you and it will show the location to the exact positioning. Hope This Helps

CODE PO462 FUEL TANK LEVEL SENSOR VOLTAGE LOW. CODE PO717 TURBINE SHAFT SPEED SPEED SENSOR NO SIGNAL. CODE PO722 OUTPUT SHAFT SPEED SENSOR NO SIGNAL. CODE PO500 VECHICLE SPEED SENSOR CIRCUIT MALFUNCTION. SOUND LIKE YOU HAVE TCM ECM PROBLEMS GETTING TOO MANY CODES. COULD HAVE LOOSE GROUND WIRE TO THE TCM AND ECM.
if you have a po725 fault code"engine speed signal" this would be an indication of a bad crankshaft sensor.the good news is it's only 50.00.the bad news is it is a pain the *** to replace!it is located on the firewall side of engine block above oilpan rail by trans bell housing.i replace them from the top reaching down but its all feel...cant see anything.if its the vehicle speed sensor in the trans your after this is about 150.00 and is located in final drive section of trans right above the drivers side inner c/v joint.much easier to replace.hope this helped...let me know.
It is a vehicle speed sensor.It will cause many various problems other than your issue but definitely is what is causing yours.I am not familiar with all makes and models so I am including a link to assist you.The link is actually a google search page which I set up for you and includes locations and images.The first couple actually are links back to this site,but the others will be much more helpful.Good luck,Greg There is also a Nissan forum,but relates more to an ABS problem someone posted,although ABS could also be affected.
if its a po725 code its engine speed fault ,replace crank sensor.for vehicle speed there are two identical sensors near each other on trans....one called revolution sensor other is called turbine speed sensor.
Boritz2: there are several speed sensors on this vehicle, so I will give you the locations of all of them due to the fact that I don't know which one you are seeking.
There are speed sensors located at each wheel to work with the ABS unit.
On the trans-axle, on the driver's side near the top of the transmission.
I hope this has been helpful to you.
Is there a reason you are looking for the speed sensor?
Probably sensors! I have already replaced the crankshaft positioning sensor once, nissan replaced it once under recall and now it is bad again! Plus my speed sensor is bad too! Go to any part store and get diagnostic test ran, it will tell what sensors are bad.
