Need help locating vss on trans for a 2000 F350 4X4 7.3 motor


1. Your ABS/ VSS can be removed and cleaned with just a clean rag, no need for wd-40 or any other solvent, also carefully clean out the hole on top of the differential, lift the vehicle (place in neutral) and check the sprocket wheel inside the pumpkin for possible missing teeth or to see if it is loose.

2. The VSS (part # F85F-9E731-AA) can also be tested with an ohms meter, it should measure ~1.9 K-ohm or higher (lower than 1.9 requires replacement).

3. The VSS is a hall-effect sensor, connect a volt meter to the sensor connector and wave a piece of metal (pair of pliers or flat metal) about a half inch away from the sensor, and you will consistently see a variation in voltage, if no movement on the volt meter is observed, replace the sensor.

4. You also have the two front wheel ABS sensors, try cleaning them first, and carefully reinstalling them.

5. When the VSS sensor is malfunctioning, the PCM may try to get input from the TSS (turbine speed sensor, top of the transmission), and as it turns out, the same return wire is used by the OSS (output speed sensor, tail end of transmission), check these two sensors also, clean them and test them (1.10 K-ohm or higher). These are also Hall Effect sensors, so check for voltage as described in paragraph 3 above.

6. Pay attention to see if your ABS light blinks when you start the vehicle, just before it stays solid. If this is happening, count the number of blinks, as this is actually a code and the blinking means the vehicle is trying to communicate with you.

7. Last, if nothing above corrected the problem, I would start tracing RFI (radio frequency interference), one sure area is usually your fuel pump (wires running along side VSS wiring. ABS/VSS wiring is routed directly to the ABS module.

I hope this information works for you.


There are two "speed sensors" though that can be confused at the parts store. They don't look the same but they are listed almost the same. The one on the rear diff is listed as the "ABS speed sensor"....the one on the tranny is listed as the "Speed sensor" The rear one is the cheapest and easiest to replace...about $12.

Want to know where the vss sensor is because the i took my 98 expedition4*4 5.4 engine and they forgot to plug the sensor


If you get under the truck the wire harness connector
will only reach the sensor it goes to

You will see it most likely near the tail or back end of the
trans on the side or top

It will be the only sensor that is not connected

Why not have the shop do that?

I have reverse and first gear


I'm guessing you don't have any other gears? If your speedometer doesn't work, then you need to replace the vehicle speed sensor (VSS), if the speedometer does work, then you probably need to replace the turbine speed sensor (TSS). The transmission can't shift if it doesn't know how fast the vehicle or transmission is moving. Since you didn't way what model and engine you have I can't tell you where the VSS or TSS is located. You can buy these sensors at a local auto part store, such as Auto Zone, and they can give you the specific location of the sensors on the transmission.

I cant find the location of the speed sensor for a 1996 Mazda B3000 pick up with auto trans


Look around the auto transmission for wires that lead to the VSS (Vehicle Speed Sensor):


    1. Remove the flywheel to converter attaching nuts. Use a socket and breaker bar on the crankshaft pulley attaching bolt. Rotate the pulley clockwise as viewed from the front to gain access to each of the nuts.
    2. NOTE: On belt driven overhead cam engines, never rotate the pulley in a counterclockwise direction as viewed from the front. Remove the Vehicle Speed Sensor (VSS) clamp retaining bolt . . .

    1. . . . then pull the VSS sensor from the transfer case (4WD) or extension housing (2WD)

    1. Remove the speedometer cable and/or vehicle speed sensor from the transfer case (4WD) or extension housing (2WD).
    2. On 2WD vehicles, scribe a mark indexing the driveshaft to the rear axle flange. Remove the driveshaft.
    1. On 4WD vehicles, remove the transfer case.

    The Vehicle Speed Sensor (VSS) is located underneath the thermostat housing.
    1. Disconnect the 3-P connector from the vehicle speed sensor (VSS).
    2. Remove the mounting bolts, then remove the VSS.
      NOTE: The VSS drive link is a very small part, be careful not to lose it.
    3. Install in the reverse order of removal.

    Vehicle Speed Sensor replacement


    Hi...
    The SPEED Sensor on your Honda accord 94.
    is located on the Transmission.
    About Under the Thermostat housing ( if you follow the lower radiator hose from radiator to engine) you will found the thermostat housing.
    Under the thermostat housing you will see on the trans, the sensor is the only one on this side of the trans,

    I hope this help on your problem.
    Thank you for use fixya...
