Question about 2006 Kia Spectra
2006 Kia Spectra speedometer and odometer fails to work. They work for just a minute then quit. I found the input and out put speed sensors and unhooked them and the speedometer and the odometer still worked just for a minute then quit. I was told by Kia service dept that there was a third sensor but cannot find it. I bought another cluster and the same thing happens. Any knowlege of this problem please share. Thanks JC

Your Vehicle velocity sensor has gone bad or the wire harness has gone bad. Check the wire harness first and if that is good, then replace the sensor. You can find the sensor on the transmission out put shaft on the drivers side. Good luck and keep me posted, be glad to help.

The speed sensor is located on the right side facing the driver side. It is on the transmission under the air filter and air line that leads to the intake manifold. It is on the left side of the transmission. It is not on top of the transmission but on the left side of the transmission close to the firewall. It is best to raise the car and locate it from underneath.

Testimonial: "ooo thank u so much for information...im just wondering now that i have the location of the speed sensor how is it that i can reset the computer...."
SOURCE: input speed sensor
The input shaft speed sensor is located on the side of the transmission by where the engine "inputs" power to the transmission (via torque converter), thus rotating the input shaft.
The output speed sensor is located by where the axles attach to the transmission, and measures the speed that the transmission "outputs" to the axles (which make the wheels turn) and that data is also used for your speedometer reading.
