Speed sensor is located at the transmission; about 4 to 5 inches from the base of the shifter.

2003 Grand Marquis digital speedo only reads "0". All other displays read correctly. Could it be the speed control? If so, where exactly is it located?


The speedometer provides speed information based on a speed/distance pulse signal from the vehicle speed sensor (VSS). The VSS is mounted on the speedometer driven gear in the transmission.
or the gauge is bad .
  • The speedometer/odometer is inoperative
  • CJB fuse 14 (10A).
  • Vehicle speed sensor (VSS).
  • Circuitry.
  • Instrument cluster.
  • Go To Pinpoint Test E .
PINPOINT TEST E: THE SPEEDOMETER/ODOMETER IS INOPERATIVE CAUTION: Use the correct probe adaptor(s) when making measurements. Failure to use the correct probe adaptor(s) may damage the connector.
CONDITIONS DETAILS/RESULTS/ACTIONS E1 CHECK VSS SPEED SIGNAL BETWEEN CIRCUITS 679 (GY/BK) AND CIRCUIT 676 (PK/OG)
VSS C1088
Raise the drive wheels off the ground. While rotating the driveshaft, measure the AC voltage between the VSS C1088 pin 1, circuit 679 (GY/BK), component side and the VSS C1088 pin 2, circuit 676 (PK/OG), component side.
  • Is the voltage between 1.3 volts AC to 6.1 volts AC?
Yes GO to E2 .

No CHECK and INSPECT the speedometer drive gear. INSTALL a new VSS if the speedometer drive gear is OK. TEST the system for normal operation E2 CHECK CIRCUIT 679 (GY/BK) AND CIRCUIT 676 (PK/OG) BETWEEN THE INSTRUMENT CLUSTER AND THE VSS

1999 Dodge Neon, speedometer reading only when it wants, how do i fix this


The Variable Speed Sensor (VSS) has failed. You will have to get it replaced. Usually located on the transmission. The only way to fix the speedometer is to replace the sensor.

Nissan Maxima speedometer reads 20 mph but actual speed is 40-50 mph, is my transmission going bad?


NO, IT'S NOT THE TRANSMISSION! SOUNDS LIKE A SPEEDOMETER PROBLEM! THAT WOULD BE ONE OF THREE THINGS! EITHER THE SPEEDOMETER, THE CABLE, OR THE SPEED SENSOR! THE SPEED SENSOR WILL USUALLY GIVE YOU A P0500 CODE ON AN OBD-II CODE READER! THE SPEED SENSOR IS ELECTRONIC SPEED CONTROL LOCATED ON THE TRANSMISSION! SOME HAVE A SPEEDOMETER CABLE HOOKED TO THEM, AND SOME JUST HAVE A 2 WIRE PLUG THAT HOOKS TO IT!

1994 GMC Jimmy 4x4 S-15 4.3 litre vortec, 2 door. Has the digital speedometer, will not register speed, remains at zero and stuck in first gear. Believe I have a bad speed transducer, where is it...


there is a cable which comes from the transmission and goes back into the speedometer try pressing both ends if it does not work it means your cable is broken get a new cable

Won't shift out of second gear


Seems to me its one of the speed sensors on the transmission. Their are two, an input speed sensor and an output speed sensor. Both are located at the front side of the trans. case above the solenoid pack, both look the same as each other and just screw into the case. If your getting a reading on the speedometer is the input sensor, if your not getting a reading on the speedometer its the output speed sensor (known as vehicle speed sensor).

I have a 1999 dodge ram 1500 4x4 that the speedometer don't untell it get to 60+ why is that and the brake light stays on but I think the light was on befor the speedometer stop working.


From what I have read this sounds like a problem with the second speed sensor located on back at the rear axel on top of the differential. If the cable is loose or the sensor is bad it will cause the brake light to come on and the speedometer to act funny. There are two speed sensors...one in the transmission and the one on the differential. The second one is probably the problem.
