Question about 1997 Toyota Camry
Hello Keith ! Since you are using Haynes Manual Book and you can not locate the component you are looking for, I do not know whether anyone can help you having the autodata program just getting in the system putting the vehicle details and go to components location and surely you will locate it. I believe the speed sensor should be on the automatic transmission.

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. .

First I would try resetting the ECU by disconnecting the battery for a few minutes. This will remove the code. Then see if it comes back. Mind you you will not pass inspection, because the ECU will need to monitor a certain amount of driving "cycles" before inspection will accept the findings. Before that, replace your O2 sensors, and get those out of the way. P0770 is a Shift Solenoid E Malfunction. You will have to look at a manual to find out which Shift Solenoid that "E" refers to and where it is located. TC lockup, refers to the TC lockup solenoid. If so I would try replacing that and going from there. The auto transmission is a pretty complicated beast, and even the most experienced DIY'ers would go past the normal maintenance. HOWEVER, changing solenoids is considered, at least to me, DIY maintenance. Whats is your RPM when cruising at say 60 mph. If its more than 2400 rpms, then i would say it is your lockup solenoid. hope this helps

The Vehicle Speed Sensor (VSS) is a magnetic pick-up sensor that sends a signal to the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) and the speedometer. The sensor measures the rotation of the output shaft on the transaxle and sends an AC voltage signal to the PCM which determines the corresponding vehicle speed.

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.
