The vehicle speed sensor is most allways located on the tail shaft of transmision passenger side not to be confused with axle speed sensor (for ABS brakes) on the top of rear differential

but if your speedo don't work there is a tech serv bull on in dash speedo's for your model year , basicly it needs replaced
ck with your ford dealer it might be still under warrenty

I cannot locate the vehicle speed sensor. I found two sensors on the transfer case and on the transmission but was told neither was the vss. Please advise


Mounted to the speedometer cable located at the rear driver's side of the transmission, or, possibly incorporated into the instrument cluster (Ford switched to doing this at some point prior to 1994 model year, which did not have traditional VSS.)

Speedometer cable replaced still have speedometer flutter


1989 Mustang speedometer is cable drive so VSS will not affect.
If over 140k miles the speedometer is likely worn out.
My company SpeedometerRepair.com can repair or another speedometer shop.

Where is the Intermittent VSS Sensor Signal located on my 91 deville


You misunderstand code, there is a VSS (Vehicle Speed Sensor) it's problem is that it is giving an intermittent signal. The VSS is what tells the speedometer how fast you are going (among other things) it is located in the transmission (transaxle). '91 is right around the time when they were going away from mechanical speedometer cables so it may or may not have one depending on the production date. If it has a cable the VSS is built into the speedo gear housing. If there is no cable, the VSS is in the same location on the tranny it just has no provision to drive the speedo cable If you have the new part it may help you to find it on the car but it should be in the left side of the transmission housing near where the left drive axle goes into the case. The VSS gear actually drives off of the very end of that axle inside the gear case. I think it is a 10mm head bolt that retains the VSS.

Hope this helps, best of luck.

Vss


VSS is the Vehicle Speed Sensor; newer vehicles no longer have a speedometer cable, the speedometer is electronic and receives a signal from the VSS located on the transmission. No signal from the VSS will set a code, cause the speedometer to malfunction and interfer with the ABS system.

Why wont my speed odometer work on my 2002 dodge neon rt????please help


The speedometer is driven by the computer which uses the Vehicle Speed Sensor, which is located on the transmission, to determine how fast the vehicle is traveling. It is not uncommon for the VSS to go out unexpectedly, usually the check engine light will come on when it malfunctions, and the computer will lock the transmission in 2nd gear, which will allow you to limp the car in to a repair shop.

Speedometer quit working


There is no Speedometer cable on a 2002 Jetta. You have a VSS (vehicle speed sensor) I would have someone check the codes on it and see if the VSS is the problem.

I have a 1994 Honda Accord LX sedan and the speedometer just stopped working. My mechanic just put in a transmission that he bought from a junk yard. How do i fix this problem?


I have a 99 accord and my speedometer and odometer did not work. The problem was the VSS vehicle speed sensor. The VSS is located on the transmission. Once I replaced it everything worked fine.
