You are supposed to have the little antenna /reader outside the car in the center of the windshield, and I would recheck if you have it plugged in properly. If not call JVC or the store you bought the head unit from and ask them.

Go to a reputable transmission shop and find out about re-calibrating your speed sensor. They should be able to take care of that for you.

Tip

Replacing the CD changer


so, a while ago, my 6-disc CD changer stopped working. it would keep whirring for a couple minutes, and an error message would keep popping up on the display. last night i figured out how to take everything off, leaving only the CD changer

the first thing you need to know is that there is a Phillips screw at the bottom, just to the left of the cigarette lighter. once you take out that screw, you'll be able to pop off the entire front panel

unfortunately, the air controls will still be attached. there is a 3" long plug on the left side (behind the fan speed), an air hose clump that is attached by a silicone socket in the center, and another plug behind the cigarette lighter. IT WILL SPARK IF YOU TOUCH THE METAL BITS WITH ANOTHER METAL OBJECT. you won't need to touch those because there is a plastic release on one side of the socket. mine was on the left

now that you have safely disconnected everything, all that's left is the CD changer. you will probably see the 4 star screws first, since they are brass-colored. IGNORE THESE, at least for now. the ones you WILL need to take out are 4 Phillips screws, one on each corner of the CD changer

once those are out, there is another plug-in that you have to release, and something connected to the box on the right side. i ordered my new changer and learned this was just another plug. just pull it out by the black collar and it should come out easy

as for getting a stuck CD out of the changer, there are some small screws (mostly T15, but a couple Phillips as well). then, there is one or two panels that need REALLY TINY Phillips screws, but i didn't have anything that small, so i had to use the smallest flathead i could find. once you have completely removed most of the old CD changer, there is a column in the center that will just pop off

thanks for reading!

Hi, it is likely your speed sensor has failed or the wiring is broken. The speed sensor is mounted near the rear of the transmission and has 2 wires attached. Check to see if the wires got pulled. If the wires look good, you can test the sensor if you have some jack stands to put under the back wheels. Make sure the transfer case is set to 2WD. Test procedures are pasted below. Please let me know if you have any questions, and thanks for using FixYa.

OPERATION

The vehicle speed sensor is made up of a coil mounted on the transmission and a tooth rotor mounted to the output shaft of the transmission. As each tooth nears the coil, the coil produces an AC voltage pulse. As the vehicle speed increases the number of voltage pulses per second increases.
TESTING

See Figure 1


jturcotte_2211.gif

Fig. Fig. 1: Vehicle Speed Sensor (VSS) and vehicle speed signal buffer wiring diagram

  1. To test the VSS, backprobe the VSS terminals with a high impedance voltmeter (set at the AC voltage scale).
  2. Safely raise and support the entire vehicle using jackstands. Make absolutely sure the vehicle is stable.
  3. Start the vehicle and place it in gear.
  4. Verify that the VSS voltage increases as the drive shaft speed increases.
  5. If the VSS voltage is not as specified the VSS may be faulty.

REMOVAL & INSTALLATION

See Figure 2
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Disengage the electrical connection.
  3. Unfasten the sensor retainers.
  4. Remove the sensor and gasket or O-ring.

To install:
  1. Install the sensor with a new gasket or O-ring.
  2. Fasten the sensor retainers.
  3. Engage the electrical connections.
  4. Connect the negative battery cable.

  • 2001-2005 ESCAPE 3.0L UNSTABLE IDLE - 2001-2003 ESCAPE 3.0L AUTOMATIC TRANSAXLE SHUDDER - MEXICO ONLY
Publication Date: May 25, 2006
FORD: 2001-2005 Escape
ISSUE: Some 2001-2005 Escape vehicles equipped with a 3.0L engine may exhibit idle speeds outside the specified range. Some 2001-2003 Escape vehicles equipped with a 3.0L engine and CD4E automatic transaxle may exhibit a transmission shudder.
ACTION: Follow the Service Procedure steps to correct the condition.
SERVICE PROCEDURE
  1. If the concern is a 2001-2005 Escape with idle speeds outside the specified range:
    1. Install a new idle air control (IAC) valve with jumper harness included in the kit. The new Denso brand IAC will be installed with the electrical connector facing the opposite direction of the original (Hitachi) valve which is why the jumper harness is required. The original (Hitachi) IAC connector faces the front of the vehicle while the new Denso IAC connector faces toward the rear of the vehicle.
    2. Referring to the calibration charts (Figures 1 and 2), select the applicable file and reprogram the powertrain control module (PCM) using the TSB Service Procedure and WDS/IDS release B40.5 and higher. Calibration files may also be obtained at www.motorcraft.com.
  2. If the concern is a 2001 - 2003 Escape with transaxle shudder, drain, flush and refill the transmission fluid with MERCON® Multi-Purpose Automatic Transmission Fluid. Then, referring to the calibration charts (Figures 1 and 2), select the applicable file and reprogram the PCM using the TSB Service Procedure and WDS/IDS release B40.5 and higher. Calibration files may also be obtained at www.motorcraft.com.
  3. When reprogramming the PCM use blank path programming. Select the proper file from the chart and manually enter the PCM part number or tear tag number to obtain the updated calibration file.
To Perform Blank Path Programming:
  1. Connect WDS/IDS to vehicle.
  2. Select "16 pin", select "All others, except those below", press TICK.
  3. Screen shows installation of cable, press TICK.
  4. Screen shows to turn ignition ON. DO NOT TURN IGNITION ON. Press TICK.
  5. Screen shows progress bar, then screen tells you "No communication can be established with the PCM" and asks you if you want to retry? Select "NO". With the ignition key still OFF, press TICK.
  6. Screen shows to turn ignition ON. Keep ignition in the "OFF" position, press TICK and you will be asked to cycle the key "ON" and "OFF" a few times. Please keep the key position in the "OFF" position through the key cycles.
  7. Screen will show "The diagnostic tester is unable to communicate with this vehicle." You will be prompted to "select a vehicle from the vehicle list", press TICK.
  8. A list of vehicles will be displayed, select ALL OTHERS, and press TICK.
  9. Screen shows "To enable WDS to reprogram the PCM with the correct calibration", enter one of the following: Vehicle Calibration number (7 digits), Tear Tag number (4 digits), or PCM part number, press TICK.
  10. Highlight the box next to the selection chosen, and enter ONLY ONE of the selections listed above. Press TICK.
  11. Follow and answer correctly all remaining screens. Once PCM is reprogrammed communication should be reestablished and PATS system can be reset (if necessary) per Workshop Manual, Section 419-01.
