Where is my speed sensor located?


Hi.

The vehicle speed sensor or VSS is located on top of the transmission, on the output shaft. This sensor provides input to the speedometer on instrument cluster. There are also 4 wheel speed sensors (one on each wheel). Their primary function is to detect wheel speed to control ABS.

Below a picture of the VSS sensor:

98 ford windstar fuse box, need anti lock brake fuse location in fuse box


The sensor codes have to be read off a computer to see the problem, either speed sensor, sounds more like ABS module. Locate the main fuse/control box under hood. There should be either a relay or large fuse marked for abs.Good Luck.Please rate me as ' helpful ' if satisfied.

Where is the vss located on a 95 ford windstar. The speedometer went ouit and its shifting crazy.


The vehicle speed sensor is located on transaxle in behind the engine.
Tricky to get at and not an easy replacement.
While it is possible the sensor is bad, the more common issue with your Windstar is the speedometer itself.
You should have it properly diagnosed before replacing parts.
If the speedometer is the defect you will need to replace the instrument panel as an assembly.
Using parts from a recycler will often result with another bad speedometer as it is a very common problem.
Some aftermarket auto supply may be able to get you a rebuilt unit.
if not you may have to get it from Ford.

Find and replace speed sensor


Hi,

On Top of the Transmission. You can see the Black sensor just under the Air Breather Intake assembly in front of the driver side. It has an electrical wire connection and is bolted onto the tranny with (2)5/16" hex head bolts and (1)1/2" nut that holds the throttle arm to the sensor. Very easy to replace.

Thanks.
