The turbine shaft speed sensor is located inside the transmission. The transmission will have to be removed and disassembled to access the sensor. The sensor you have now... sound about what it looks like.

    so do i just have to drop the pan to have it dun, or better yet do u have a diagram were it is,some 1 on here said that the sensor im refering to is also the pressure control solinoid is that sound rite.also said wouldnt have to remove the valve body . thanx

    You can not access this sensor through the pad. The transmission will have to be removed and torn down to access this sensor.This sensor is bolted to what is call the center support of the transmission. Sorry, I do not have a photo. The pressure control solenoid and the TSS are two different parts.

SOURCE: input/turbine speed sensor circuit

Your speed sensor, is located on top of the transaxle, near the starter. To access it, remove the battery, then remove the battery tray (4 10mm bolts). You will see wires coming from the lower oxygen sensor, and they snap into the bracket that holds the speed sensor in place. The actual speed sensor has a 2 wire clip on it, and is held in place by the bracket and a 10mm bolt.

Location of trans speed sensor 3 pin location 2004 solar v6 automatic p0500 speed sensor trouble code


no what matters is if the pulses are good.
and the transmission not slipping.
the TCM is not genious level yet.

are you asking what P0500 means.
or want us to tell you all things stated in fSM for this code.
what? guessing you can do .
ever heard of alldata.com (DIY)
ever read that page on 500s?
i guess not.
3.3L v6 ?
quote:
Trouble Code Conditions: P0500
VEHICLE SPEED SENSOR "A"
The ECM detects following conditions simultaneously for 2 secnonds (1 trip detection logic):
No SPD (speed sensor) signal while ECM detects NC (trans­mission counter gear) signal is more than 300 RPM Park/Neutral position switch is OFF (When shift lever is in other than P and N positions) Possible Causes:
  • Open or short in speed sensor circuit
  • Speed sensor
  • Combination meter
  • ECM
  • Skid control ECU
im trying to decode that too, the sensors
are called, C3 counter gear sensor, and Turbin T3 sensor
but the book keeps changing names in the book.

i think it means, counter gear shows correct RPM
but the turbine gear sensor T3 is dead.
while in gear. is too hard for them to say. so i said it.
and my guess, moving,
after all transmission slip moving
in fact i can scan your car and prove that
i scan it in park, then indrive, no moving
got 500s, or are 500 happening flogging engine.

but the ECU signal is either dead for turbine sensor or is way too slow. see incongruity from 300+ rpm on counter gear.

500 means dead, not intermittant.
i looked at all codes for turbine.

so my best guess (no real fsm only alldata)
is Turbine is the clutch sensor. (input rpm to trans-clutch)
and counter gear is tail shaft sensor.? (output speed)
so the front clutch sensor is dead
or being grounded out, or is not connected, (rusty conns?)

Most FSM made do a poor job, at showing possible bad parts.

here is better
  1. the sensor is weak or dead
  2. the sensor connections are bad.
  3. the sensor, signals do not arrive at the PCM /TCM, due to bad wires, or anything on that line shorting that line out.
  4. better (yes?, this is electronics) no a parts swap game.

if the car drives ok then the trans does not slip.
the TCM sees both ends and can detect, bad sensors or gross slip.
i think it means bad sensor. in this case only.

what does this mean?
  1. having difficulty locating it
can buy one, find one, can't insert it, or?

Overdrive not engage


make sure transmission fluid not too low.other possible causes to your problem could be faulty transmission shift solenoid or faulty input turbine speed sensor or faulty output speed sensor.could have faulty vechicle speed sensor or faulty TPS have vechicle code scan could be many things.

Now i dont know a lot about automatics especially modern ones with all this fancy electronics thats used nowdays but i think its a fault with the temperature sensor for the gearbox.But where its located and what it looks like i have no idea it could even be mounted inside the gearbox .Sorry not a very good answer from a mechanic but?? very few of our europeon cars come with auto transmission .Evan when i do know whats wrong i cannot buy the parts for the gearbox as only re-con boxes supplied by the dealer so best advice is to try a specialist in auto box repairs only .PS some of my best students when i used to teach mechanics many moons ago were the girls so no excuses like iam only a girl please

I WOULD TRY REPLACING THE INPUT SPEED SENSOR..A DEFECTIVE SPEED SENSOR CAN CAUSE ALL OF THESE FAULTS..IT IS LOCATED IN FRONT OF TRANS ABOVE SOLENOID PACK..IT IS THE ONE CLOSEST TO THE ENGINE..IT SCREWS INTO TO TRANSMISSION..A 1 INCH SOCKET FITS IT..ALSO CHECK WIRING TO BOTH SPEED SENSORS..A SENSOR IS ABOUT 35 BUCKS,AVAILABLE AT YOUR LOCAL DODGE DEALER..GET A NEW ONE AND YOU'LL SEE WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE..FAIRLY COMMON PROBLEM..HAVE REPLACED LOTS OF THEM

Location of speed sensor a for 99 dodge intrepid


The "Vehicle Speed Sensor" signal is generated by the transmisson output speed sensor. That is the one located at the rear of the case. It is externally mounted. That supplies "vehicle speed" info to the other On-Board Computers. The input turbine speed sensor is located just behind the bell housing area of the case. I believe the trans controller is the only module that needs that info. The Crank Position Sensor give engine RPM info and it is located on the bell housing near the engine block. I hope this helps.

Jeep erradic in shifting


I would look into replacing the VSS which is the vehicle speed sensor, it is the input that tells the transmission when to go into overdrive and the torque converter to lock up, also make sure the connector is clean and tight to the sensor, this part is located on the side of the trans where the speedo cable would go.
