Question about 1998 Nissan Pathfinder
My 1998 Nissan Pathfinder (4x4 automatic) has a speedometer that isn't working, along with the trip and odometer, that and cruise control isn't working. The diagnostic tool says it's the speed sensor at fault. I'm wondering if it's just the speed sensor in the transfer case I can check/replace due to the speedometer/cruise being out and not mess with the abs wheel speed sensors. Can you give me advise?
It's your speed sensor at the transfercase on the drivers side i believe. Check the wire and clip to the sensor for any break or loose contacts.
Easy fix and is about a 30 min job to do with simple tools. Un-clip the wire conntection, remove the retainer bolt and slide and sensor out. To install just do everything in reverse and add transmisson oil if needed.
Most of the time, it's going to be the sensor. Keep in mind that there are two sensor's so make sure it's the one on the output shaft at the transfercase. The other one is closer to the front of the transmission on the same side with is the input Volosity speed sensor.
If it was your ABS sensor, you ABS light would come on in your dash.
Good luck and hope this helps
