On a Suburban, the tail shaft housing is the part of the transmission where the driveshaft connects.
The sensor should be in the side of the housing, held on with a bracket and bolt.

They are not the sensors you want. The car uses the abs wheel sensors for vehicle speed. Your problem lies in the abs system , possibly the left front sensor, abs ecu or speedo cluster, Clear the code and see if it stay out otherwise you'll need to go to a trusted technician. .

SOURCE: where on the transmission is the speed sensor

If you remove the air filter box, the Input shaft speed sensor can be seen on the top of the transmission, beneath the cable shift linkage. You'll have to remove some brackets to move some electrical cables and the like out of the way, but it's a pretty straight forward remove/install. The output sensor is also on the top of the transaxle, but further back towards the firewall. To differentiate between the two: the input shaft electrical plugs in vertically, the output shaft electrical plugs in horizontally. BE SURE to completely clean all dirt/sand/debris away from the sensors before removing them.

Where is the vehicle speed sensor located on a 91 nissan pickup


The speed sensor is located on the transmission towards the tail shaft. The housing that encloses the cable will attach on the side of the tranny. At this connection you will find the speed sensor right where it attaches to the tranny. There will be a couple of wires attached to the speed sensor.
