Question about 2000 Volvo S40
Scan tool tells me that it is a vss (vehical speed sensor )
wherei s it located? and is the sensor part of the abs sysetm on the wheels? or has it got a sensor on the diff. some where? There looks to be no sensor on the gear box, apart from the crank sensor.
I have volvo s40 2001 and all of sudden my speedo meter is not working, engine temparature display is not working, I can't see the number of miled done. Please help me what is the problem.

Hopefully your crank sensor is not located on gearbox as you placed it in your post! VOLVO puts their VSS on the inboard side of an output shaft, usually. You should be looking at the axles, and the holes in the transaxle they extend out of... There will be a sensor reading the inner end of one of these output shafts (axles.) This is your VSS. It operates independently of your ABS, but its accuracy is vital to the ABS's proper function. Its reading is used for many things in the car, not the least of which is speedometer readout. Hope this helps, let me know if you don't see it, I'll get you a more exact location if need be, but if you look carefully, you'll find it. It's reading the speed of one of those axles, but not at the wheel, at the transaxle, get it???
