Take your sensor to a dealer spares department along with the vin number of the vehicle and have it identified as the one you have may not be the right one .During vehicle assembly manufacturers change parts suppliers and so the appearance of a part may be different but not the function

A 2001 jimmy gmc my speedometer dose not work and my transmision will not shift i changed the sensor and it didnt fix the problem i changed the filter didnt help what else could cause this problem

What sensor did you change . VSS - vehicle speed sensor or output speed sensor .
The ideal what to find the problem would be to hook up a factory scan tool to see the VSS is put out a signal to the PCM/ECM , then see if the PCM /ECM is sending info to the instrument cluster ,. And knowing how these this work couldn't hurt either .

The IPC displays the vehicle speed based on the information from the PCM. The PCM converts the data from the vehicle speed sensor to a 4000 pulses/mile signal. The IPC uses the vehicle speed signal circuit from the PCM in order to calculate the vehicle speed. The speedometer defaults to 0 km/h (0 mph) if a malfunction in the vehicle speed signal circuit exists.

Have the vehicle checked for DTC"S - diagnostic trouble codes . No all code's turn on the check engine light .
DTC P0608
The PCM creates the vehicle speed output signal by pulsing the circuit to ground. The PCM pulses the circuit at the same rate as the vehicle speed signal input. The PCM monitors the voltage on the vehicle speed signal circuit. If the PCM determines the voltage is out of the normal operating range, a DTC sets.

Install a scan tool.
Raise the vehicle's drive wheels. Refer to Lifting and Jacking the Vehicle in General Information.
Start the engine.
Place the transmission into drive for an automatic transmission or third gear for a manual transmission.
With the scan tool, observe the Vehicle Speed Sensor parameter in the PCM data list.
Does the Vehicle Speed Sensor parameter match the speedometer display?

This is something best taken to a qualified repair shop . This could be a wiring issue , or the PCM or the instrument cluster .

I push on my brakes and the pedal vibrates back to me.. i think it mite be the abs sensor.(ABS LIGHT IS ON) easy to replace?

If it does this in the slippery weather , then that is a normal brake feed back. The light should not stay on. If it does it may be the sensor. Take it in to your mechanic.

VSS vehicle speed sensor replacement

There are vehicle speed sensors on all four wheels and usually another on the transmission. Depends on why you are replacing and what system you are having trouble with. The ABS uses the four wheels to gauge speed for stopping and traction control purposes. The sensor on the transmission (output speed sensor) is the one that feeds data to the computer for the speedometer. Take off your tires and the speed sensors are easy to find behind the brake rotors. The trans mounted sensor will be easiest to find by having the new part in hand and finding the corresponding sensor to match.

I have a 2007 Dodge Charger Law Enforcement edition with the 5.7 Hemi engine. My vehicles ABS light, emergency brake light, yellow engine light, are on. My speedometer will not work and the vehicle will...

This code does not match any codes for that year, this is not a code, something is wrong if the scan tool is giving you a 5307, the code should be something like a poxxxx or pxxxx or it can be a U code, uxxxx or a bxxxx code, the almost sounds like a bad speed sensor as the ****** doesnt shift and the abs and brake light is on, i would start by having the speed sensor checked out. good day.

Could be the vehicle speed sensor, it might be a different calibration [ did you swap the sensors form your old unit to the replacement ? ] or the wiring to it got pinched.

2005 ToyotaCamry fault code P0500 Vehicle Speed sensor Malfuction

They are not the sensors you want. The car uses the abs wheel sensors for vehicle speed. Your problem lies in the abs system , possibly the left front sensor, abs ecu or speedo cluster, Clear the code and see if it stay out otherwise you'll need to go to a trusted technician. .
