If ur car doesnt have abs brakes the sensor should be on the topside of the gear of the differential, right on your gearbox, it has 2 cables and it looks like this

hope this helps

take care and have fun!

The problem is in the loom in the steering wheel, it requires removal of the airbag and a new wheel loom to be fitted. The loom costs about £15.00 I think.

SOURCE: can you tell me what a lambda sencer does and how

The lambda sensor is located in the exhaust. There are 2, 1 before the catalytic convertor and 1 after. The lambda sensor senses how much oxygen is in the exhaust gases and continually adjusts the fuel/air mixture so that the oxygen level is correct. If the lambda sensor fails and senses the incorrect amount of oxygen it may adjust the fuel/air mixture so that the engine doesnt run properly.

Speedometer not working in a 1999 chevy trailblazer

Is this an analog or digital speedo? If analog, three possibilities come to mind: 1. broken speedo cable; 2. broken speedo head assembly: broken speedo drive gear in the transmission final drive/output shaft area. If digital, could be many things.

There is a gear that drives the sensor gear much like the old speedo cable gear.
If you connected the sensor and the check engine light went off, chances are the sensor is working.

Need speeddominar repair It does not work

The speedo drive is in the gearbox at the back, take off the cable and check the inner cable for breakage, spin the cable by hand rather quickly look at the speedo if it moves its the drive in the gearbox, if not its the speedo clock. To check the drive, take the drive out of the gear box, held in with one 10mm bolt, check for ware, if this is worn you can replace it but the problem is the gearbox lay-shaft it worn and the problem will re occur in a few months.

Hi all, I just changed my tires from the front to back and the back to the front. Right after that my speedo meter stoped working. The fuse is tested and is ok. What could be the problem? Greetings Marc

I think you may be suspecting the ABS speed sensors but , this is not connected to the road speed of the vehicle The speedo will be on the gearbox final drive or output shaft. the wheels will rotate at different speeds relevent to each other depending on road conditions , cornering or tyre grip etc . So check if the speedo sensor it could have been damaged if a trolly type of jack was used ! Good Luck
