Question about 2000 Ford Focus

Access is easiest from below. on the manual transmission you will have to jack up and support the car, remove the left front wheel and wheel arch liner. the sensor is located next to the right hand drive shaft at the rear of the transmission. disconnect the wiring plug from the top of sensor, pull out retaining pin, noting how it is fitted, pull sensor out and recover O-ring seal if damaged replace with new. watch out for a little oil spillage . fitting is reversal of removal

The VSS is located on the transmission and sends a pulsing voltage signal to the ECM which is converted to miles per hour. This sensor mainly controls the operation of the TCC system, shift light, cruise control and activation of the EGR system.

The vehicle speed sensor is made up of a coil mounted on the transmission and a tooth rotor mounted to the output shaft of the transmission. As each tooth nears the coil, the coil produces an AC voltage pulse. As the vehicle speed increases the number of voltage pulses per second increases.
