Speed sensor location

Finally got the Tranny back on to my 2004 civic. But can not figure out where the hell the connection for my speed sensor is. My speedometer stayed at 0 MPH the whole way back home. Help?

Where is theTransmission Speed Sensor location on 1995 escort lx wagon?

Some of the trannys do not have the fill plug feature. On these trannys, you have to fill through the Vehicle Speed Sensor location (VSS). This is not fun. The VSS is located on the firewall side of the tranny, about in the middle of the tranny, down low. You can barely see it and reach it from the top of the engine compartment on the driver\'s side. You have to disconnect the VSS wire connector. Then, remove the VSS retaining bolt - this is a 10mm hex-head bolt in the tranny near the base of the VSS. The VSS must finally be pried carefully out of the case. Tranny fluid is filled through the VSS hole until full. Re-install the VSS and hook up the connector when complete. Have a box of Band-Aids ready.

If you have to change the fluid because you pulled the tranny, do yourself the favor of removing the speed sensor when the tranny is OUT of the vehicle. Then you can change the O-ring as well. Much easier not to damage the VSS which is a $60+ part to replace.

I have a 2004 GMC Envoy SLT and the speeddometer stops working after a few miles. Sometimes it shows i'm going 120mph when i'm doing 35 etc. I'm thinking its the speed sensor, if so where is it...

The speed sensor is usually in the drivers side part of the tranny. It looks the same as a crank sensor. Check the connection also for bent male connectors.

Location of transfer case for a 1998 honda civic

There is no spedometer cable. It is electronic. There should be a speed sensor on the top of the transmission near the back side. Two bolts hold the sensor to the tranny and there should be three wires coming out of the sensor on a plug.

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.

How does cruise control work on 1998 honda civic

It works off the speed sensor on the tranny. The information goes thru the computer from the speed sensor and then controls the throttle. Hitting the brakes just cuts (shut) the speed control (it turns it off) The brakes have no control
