    I was told by Napa Mechanic that the Vehicle Speed Sensor needs to be replaced, but is charging me $487. Is this corect? Where is the vehicle speed sensor located?

I bet money on the tranny speed sensor being the problem- I think NAPA has em for about $100 bucks or so, but that has been a while. Good luck

Sppeedometer works intermittantly


If the vehicle speed sensor was the cause you would have a check engine light and the transmission would have sifting issues into overdrive, I would think you just have a failing tachometer stepper motor (tiny DC motor) that drives the needle..

I have a 95 lexus es300. a o/d off light is on my dash and won't go off


That is called the OVERDRIVE OFF and yes it will affect you transmission. The overdrive is your highest gear, used for highway cruising and will promote the best fuel economy. You have an Overdrive switch in the vehicle. It is either on the shifter knob or on the center console/dash. It allows you to disable the overdrive if you desire. It sounds like you turned it off unwittingly.

Overdrive light flashing


Hi there. When the OD light keeps flashing it means that your vehicle speed sensor is bad and needs to be replaced. They should cost around $100. Good luck!

Lost speedometer and overdrive light flashing


Its most likely the vehicle speed sensor. Its on the transmission near the output shaft on the passenger side. Check the connection first, if it's good, change the sensor.

Problem w/transmission Lexus ES300 1999


Is your O/D off? There should be a light under your speedometer, if it says "O/D OFF" than your car wont go to fourth gear. You can turn the overdrive back on on the knob that changes gears, theres a little button on the side. Press it and you should be good.
