Odometer stopped working then the check engine light come on. The ECU code said it was the vehicle speed sencor.Does this sencor control the odometer also?Is the speed sencor the same as the speedometer because mine has two wires on it not the cable type

This vehicle should not have a speedo cable. It should use a vehicle speed sensor that sends info to the speedometer.odometer. Is the check engine light on? It may have a code stored in the computer for this issue
I found this under Fixya; 2006 Subaru Outback; there were 25 answers: The problem is not with an emission issue as you would expect with a check engine light. The ER 55 code on the odometer means that there is a loss of communication with the ECU, that is why the check engine light is on and cruise light flashing. for what ever reason whenever your check engine light comes on the cruise becomes disabled. Lame I know. I work in the service department and have seen this issue a lot. The only real way to fix this issue is to go the dealer and have them do a reflash for your vehicle. If the ECU is bad it is covered under the federal emmission wrty for 8 years or 80,000 miles
In this vehicle does not have vehicle speed sensor but vss was convert from ABS ecu that detect signal from wheel speed sensor so you have to check that ABS light comes on or not and check for code fix it first and you will get the result
You could have a faulty speedometer/odometer combination meter causing a false Vehicle Speed Sensor error.
My 1998 Sienna had the following symptoms:
- Speedometer and odometer failed intermittently
- The check engine light would come on and I would get a p0500 code in the OBDII.
- The cruise control would stop working at the same time the speedometer failed.
There is a speed sensor in each one of the tires and they feed the speed information to the ABS ECU. From the ABS ECU the speed signal goes to the speedometer/odometer combination meter, and from there it goes to the Engine Control Module and to the Cruise Control ECU. I could see a signal coming into the speedometer/odometer, but no signal going out. Replacing the speedometer/odometer combination meter fixed the problem.
Having the vehicle checked for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble code's could point you in a diagnostic direction . Most auto part stores will check them for free .Not shifting ,odometer not work would make me believe the VSS - vehicle speed sensor is bad , engine light coming on has to do with the engine management system , not the engine mechanical ! You don't know about OBD 2 - onboard diagnostic's . The check engine light it's called ,comes on when the vehicle is polluting 1 & 1/2 times more then the EPA allows . Your best bet mite be to take it to a qualified repair shop that knows how it works .
this is most likely due to the Vehicle Speed Sensor malfunctioning, this will set the check engine light and cause the Odometer issue as well, have a system computer test run to see what trouble code is stored in memory, that will pin it down.
sounds like you need to take to dealer to have it re-programmed .quick reset might cure it though and dont laugh at this as it often works and save a few quid .disconnect both battery terminals and hold them together for a least 30 secs to discharge capacitors in ECU .it might work and its worth a shot .if it doesnt hope your big enough to lay the golden egg
