No, it is for the speedometer only. The cable that runs to the throttle from the transmission needs adjusted.

Location of speed sensor 96 Jeep Cherokee


which one?
if the rear transmission, it just is a conn, and 1 screw.
a 96 -2006 sure.
42RE transmission or what? there are 2.
why not post the DTC error so we can be on the same page,?
page 191 covers it here , under tranny

some cars have up to 4 speed sensors, 2 on engine and 2 in tranny.
so... guessing page p191 tail
there is also a backup sensor for that. so.....
post DTC error and WIN, speed sensors means zero.
my guys is net rumor told you trans shifts bad and is VSS bad?
or did you scan it and see a live error, DTC,
that be best, not rumors, (and do clean it and retest )

91 cherokee shifts fine at fist but after a minute or so it wont shift out of first gear. changed the output speed sensor but no change


Sounds like a bad out speed sensor.Are you sure you replaced the correct sensor?This trans(AW340)Has an output speed sensor and a vehicle speed sensor.The output speed sensor is located on the side of tail housing just next to where it bolts to transmission case.The vehicle speed sensor will be about midway of the tail housing or on the transfer case tail housing on the 4x4 models.It may be a good idea to have a tranny shop you trust run a diagnostic and see if you are getting output sensor signal to TCM( transmission control module behind glove box)and take a look at TPS (throttle position sensor)signal when it is hot to make sure you replace the correct part.I have seen bad TPS sensors on these jeep not affect engine drivability because the sensor is really two(one for trans and one for engine)thus the two plugs on the TPS sensor for the automatic Cherokee.Good Luck and let me know if I can help.

2004 jeep grand cherokee when I shift it in 4 low the 4 wheels spin when its in all wheel drive just the back spins. I don't have a clue and I am a mechanic


My knowledge would point to either some sensor in the electrical system of the 4wd (Is it electric 4x4 or does it have the stick shift)

If nothing there, you may just need to replace your transfer case.
Don't jump to that conclusion though, not the most financially easy fix.

I have 31x10.5x15 tires on the rear and stock 15in tires on the front of a 96 Jeep Grand Cherokee. The front end is trying to lock in 4 wheel low. Is it because of the different size tires? Can I disable...


Tire size is critical on any jeep but especially so on ones with quadratrac transfer cases. If you run different size tires it will cause the fluid coupler inside the case to overheat and fail. (big$ to repair)
Don't drive it that way and get a matching set of tires on there asap!!!
