2005 forester 5 speed manual.
How does the Speed sensor work - analouge or electronic?
Why - a service ceter says they may have to remove the gear box to fix it? I would think a 2005 sensor would be electronic not a driven gear?

Hello, it is most likely the vehicle speed sensor. There is only one and should be mounted on the passengers side in the upper center section of the trans. The Subaru pin-point test says: Step 1-Is the vehicle an automatic?...No, then go to step 3- Does the speedometer operate normally?...No, Then check speedometer and VSS. I own two Subys and I've replace the speed sensor on one of them, I haven't seen to many gauge pods go out but it's not unheard of. But it's a lot cheaper to try a vehicle speed sensor than it is for a gauge pod. I hope this info helps!
It is part of the bearing hub assembly.Very have to do without air tools,If setting multiple abs/tc code (wheel speed sensors) probably abs electronic module or chaffed wires on drivers side at ac lines by air box.Have big problems with this and probably will come back.
Sounds that the magnetic pickup on the vehicle speed sensor has stopped working. Dirt or grease usually. That will cause an erratic reading. Also check wiring to sensor. Poor connection is rare but possible. Good luck and have a good day.
There is a chance that the VSS (Vehicle Speed Sensor) in the trans is bad. The ECM (computer) needs to know how fast the vehicle is moving, and what load it's under in order to adjust engine RPM and consequently emission controls, trans shift points, etc. Hope this helps.
