The transmission may have a soleniod issue.

It may be a faulty speedometer with a short inside, or a short on speedometer wirings or connector.

Whenever car vibration cause the wiring to short, there you lose speedometer and trans functionality.

You need to access the speedometer connector and wirings to
instrument panel to fix this.

I would suggest the sensor is the Vehicle Speed Sensor (VSS)...Colors are: Pink, Brown and Black/White...However with this sensor inoperative you should have a Check Engine Light (CEL) on with a P0715 and/or P0501...Is the CEL on? ...saailer

I have a 2003 elantra, code p0501 it says its a speed sensor but my car is not abs breaks


Hi, the speed sensor is needed even on vehicles without anti-lock brakes. Is your speedometer working? If it is, the problem may be the wiring from the sensor to the computer.

Speedometer don,t work


Depending on whether your speedo is mechanical (uses a cable), or electronic (uses an electrical wire to carry the signal from the sender), I would look it (what's in between the speedo and trans speed sender) before replacing the instrument panel. A good service manual that includes a dash wiring diagram should help trouble shoot this problem.
Good luck.

Intermittent Speedometer Operation


Your vehicle has the 4T60E transmission,and there is a speed sensor mounted on the transmission case that the vehicle's computer uses to compute vehicle speed,and relay it to the dash mounted speedometer.The best way to diagnose this problem is to first,hook up a scan tool that is available at automotive repair shops,and scan the vehicle for trouble codes first.Your vehicle probably has a stored trouble code along the lines of a Vehicle Speed Sensor (VSS).After pulling codes,go to the data stream on the scan tool and look at the VSS signal that the computer is seeing,and when the speedo acts up,and stops working,look to see if the computer is seeing,a speed signal.If the vehicle computer is seeing a speed signal,then it's probably the speedo in the dash gone bad.If the vehicle computer is not seeing a speed signal,then it is likely a problem with the speed sensor mounted on the transmission,or the wires right before it.So,to diagnose really requires a scan tool,with a data stream,or you could just have the speed sensor replaced,and hope that fixes it.The speed sensor is located on the passenger side of the transmission,only accessible from under the car,but where the pass side axle actually goes into the transmission,the sensor is directly above that point,and retained in the case with a 10 mm bolt.It has two wires going to it.Good luck.
