Try this- pick the truck up off the ground high enough to safely keep the drive wheels from touching the ground. Get underneath the truck with a digital multimeter. Set your meter to Volts AC. Unplug the two-wire plug from your vehicle speed sensor, and connect the leads from your meter directly to the Vehicle Speed Sensor on the transmission. Have someone start the truck up and put it in drive, and carefully, slowly let their foot off the brake. Once the wheels start spinning, you should see an AC voltage reading at the sensor on your meter. The voltage will increase with speed, and decrease as the wheels slow down. If you've got that much, the sensor and reluctor ring in the transmission are okay, and you're going to need to find out why the wires aren't sending the signal from the VSS to the PCM. The best way to find a broken wire is to unplug the VSS connector and pcm connector, and ohm out (measure the resistance) the wires end to end to find out if there's a broken or shorted wire between the two components. If you aren't getting an AC voltage reading off the sensor with the wheels spinning, then you've either got a problem with the sensor, or an internal problem in the transmission with the reluctor ring missing, broken, or loose.

SOURCE: speedometer doesn't work and transmission wont shift

Hi, make sure you check the speed cable that runs to the engine, it may be severed. As for the tranny, you have some major gear problems that will require pulling this transmission for a deeper look. i would have a look at the transmission filter as well.

Either you have a broken wire some where from the speed sensor to the cluster or you have connector at fault, the one which hookup the dash cluster to the main wire bundel. Check the connector, maybe a pushed back pin !!

your ABS module (board) is crack and a good fixman could check that to fix or change it

How do I check the instrument cluster on a 1996 dodge Dakota?


i believe it has a vehicle speed sensor in the rear diff that is probably your problem as the sensor you replaced in the transmission was probably the output shaft speed sensor

Speedometer quick qorking 2004 usuzu rodeo 3.5


did you connect any OBD2 scan tool and look.
the PCM will tell you if the VSS is dead. flat out tell you.
why no scan the PCM and not work blind./??
the tool is cheap to buy, rent or loan. (or any mech will just do it for free as good will. (no dealers here).

ok, Rodeo, 3.5 2004
3.5L is wrong, dead wrong, 3.2 is my guess.
see here, see country and engines, neither i can guess.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Isuzu_Wizard
which engine ReALLY ?
Not the Rodeo SPORT , answers below are 3.2L non sport.

Speedo dead. what about Odometer.?????
is replace sensor a statement or a question?
replaced with a "d"
my guess it was a question. and guess.
step 1 and 2 all electrical problems.
1: test the fuses, related. Fuse #11?
2: battery fully charged, at 12.6vdc, not 10v, at 10 electronincs dont work right. fix battery. or charge system.

now how does the 04 work.?
the VSS sensor feed data to many things.
PCM (for fueling data)
Speedometer
Odometer
ABS
supension control unit.
cruise control
etc.

if the odometer works its not the VSS.
see?
the cluster is 100% electronic, ....

VSS is input to Speedo and the odometer is electronic inside
same, so if VSS is bad, both die.
fact.
if only the speedo is bad, then it is bad.

scan the PCM and not guess.
the PCM reports a bad VSS, with 100% assurance.

2001 Ford Windstar Speedometer stopped working after I installed Hub Bearings


The sensor is attached to the output shaft of the transmission and should not be affected by the work that you did. Are the ABS sensors ok?

My 97 volvo was in an accident before i bought it and my speedometer works but my odometer doesn't what or where should i begin looking to fix it


The speedometer works from the speed sensor (top of transmission casing, near engine. The Odometer must run from a cable from the transmission housing toward the firewall and the instrument cluster. The cable is either disconnected, broken or worn. You need the disconnect it and turn it with a drill to see if it works.
Source : I had a mazda where the cable became all rounded up where it connects into the transmission, I had to change the odometer cable. I did however change the speed sensor on my 94 850.

I have a 97 chevy s 10 that the vss doesnt work already replaced sensor at trans but still no speedometer


Does the odometer work?If so the priblem is in the circuit board in the instument cluster.The resistance on both wires going to speed sensor should be 5 ohms or a little less.If it is greater than that you probaly have a bad connection at pcm or a bad cluster.

To determine if speed sensor or cluster panel is problem of speedometer not working properly,2004 chev impla


if you have a multimeter and can jack up the drive wheels, run these tests on the sensor:

A defective vehicle speed sensor may cause different problems depending on the computer output control functions. A defective vehicle speed sensor (VSS) may cause improper converter clutch lockup, improper cruise control operation, and inaccurate speedometer operation.
  • Prior to VSS diagnosis, the vehicle should be lifted on a hoist so the drive wheels are free to rotate.
  • Backprobe the vss output wire and connect the voltmeter leads from this wire to ground.
  • Select the 20-volt AC scale on the voltmeter.
  • Then start the engine.
  • Place the transaxle in drive and allow the drive wheels to rotate. If the VSS voltage signal is not 0.5 volt, or more, replace the sensor.
  • When the VSS provides the specified voltage signal, backprobe the VSS terminal at the PCM and repeat the voltage signal test with the drive wheels rotating.
  • If 0.5 volt is available at this terminal, the trouble may be in the PCM (powertrain control module).
  • When 0.5 volt is not available at this terminal, turn the ignition switch off and disconnect the wire from the VSS to the PCM.
  • Connect the ohmmeter leads across the wire. the meter should read zero ohm.
  • Repeat the test with the ohmmeter leads connected to the VSS ground terminal and the PCM ground terminal.
  • This wire should also have zero ohm resistance. If the resistance in these wires is more than specified, repair the wires.
  • The condition of a speed sensor can be checked by going through the diagnostic routines for the system.
  • If this test indicates that a sensor is faulty, the sensor should be replaced.
  • Speed sensors can also be checked with an ohmmeter. Most manufacturers list a resistance specification.
  • The resistance of the sensor is measured across the sensor's terminals.
  • The typical range for a good sensor is 800 to 1400 ohms of resistance.

The odometer does not work. changed it out with other unit and still does not work. appears to be electrical or computer? speedo works fine


Speedometer, Odometer and Trip Odometer are driven by same circuit. Failure of Odometer and Trip Odometer suggests a circuit board fault on the instrument panel. A used instrument panel or repair of yours is probabaly best options.

The speedometer should malfunction too if speed sensor failed. If only the odometer and trip meter stopped working, it will most likely be the cluster itself. I had this problem, but since took the cluster out and give it a nice tap/knock, put it back in and it has worked since. Keep in mind that the VSS provides signal input to circuit that drives speedometer.

Instrument panel removal is not hard if you follow the shop manual instructions for trim removal. I've done it once on my 2.5TL to replace the D4 light bulb. PM your email address and I'll forward the pdf files for the procedure. The Vehicle Speed Sensor goes into the differential, and is what makes your speedometer and odometers work. If that fails, then your D4 light should start flashing, and either the speedometer will be bouncy or not work at all. Perhaps he forgot that 1Gs have a differential, so he said the tranny, but it's in the diff.

Hope helps.

Speedometer not working 2003 Tahoe. What are possible fixes and costs?


Is the ODOMETER working? Service eng soon light on? Could be a speed sensor OR a Instrument Cluster problem. If the Odometer works, its an Inst cluster and it wil need to be replaced. Any good Repair shop should be able to get a new one or DORMAN PRODUCTS makes replacement clusters for most GM trucks.
