    It's a sensor. I checked it with ohmeter and it shows no reading. So, it must be bad. Ill replace it & see.

    With sensor stem in a electric with key turned on, it went to 50 mph. So, it's in the transmission

If its a digital display then its a sensor but if its an analogue needle display it's most likely to be a cable

SOURCE: speedometer and tachometer stopped working

If the speedo isn't working properly, the first thing to check is the output speed sensor wires on the rear right side (near the bar code) of the tranny case. Follow the wires and make sure it hasn't been cut, pinched or shorted.
If all is well there, take the output speed sensor off. Watch out cause you'll get wet with tranny fluid (Dexron 6). (Be ready to plug it up.) If there are no metal chips or debris on the magnet inside, check it with an ohmeter on the two pins to see what the reading is. It should be around 6 to 10 ohms. If it's not steady, get a new one. Make sure the pins are clean on the connectors.
Apply some white or build grease around the shaft and "O" ring and re-install. Don't overtighten. The bolt is a "tap-tite" and should need only about 5 or 6 ft/lbs torque. (Run it in and give the bolt a quarter turn.)

Hi, I have a trooper also, I am pretty sure if it has a speed sensor it would ;located on the transmission near the tailshaft. Not sure that will help, but mine is a standard, so I can't look for you.
or the transfer case maybe?

Speedometer quick qorking 2004 usuzu rodeo 3.5

did you connect any OBD2 scan tool and look.
the PCM will tell you if the VSS is dead. flat out tell you.
why no scan the PCM and not work blind./??
the tool is cheap to buy, rent or loan. (or any mech will just do it for free as good will. (no dealers here).

ok, Rodeo, 3.5 2004
3.5L is wrong, dead wrong, 3.2 is my guess.
see here, see country and engines, neither i can guess.
which engine ReALLY ?
Not the Rodeo SPORT , answers below are 3.2L non sport.

Speedo dead. what about Odometer.?????
is replace sensor a statement or a question?
replaced with a "d"
my guess it was a question. and guess.
step 1 and 2 all electrical problems.
1: test the fuses, related. Fuse #11?
2: battery fully charged, at 12.6vdc, not 10v, at 10 electronincs dont work right. fix battery. or charge system.

now how does the 04 work.?
the VSS sensor feed data to many things.
PCM (for fueling data)
supension control unit.
cruise control

if the odometer works its not the VSS.
the cluster is 100% electronic, ....

VSS is input to Speedo and the odometer is electronic inside
same, so if VSS is bad, both die.
if only the speedo is bad, then it is bad.

scan the PCM and not guess.
the PCM reports a bad VSS, with 100% assurance.

How to replace cable. 2004 isuzu rodeo 3.5. Does it have a speedometer cable or only a sensor?

now triple posted. read my other responses.

why not stick to 1 post and update it.?

no, there is no cable. i answer that.

and ask you if the odometer works?????

and if you SCANNED the PCM. do that first.???

its all electronic end to end. this.

it just a stroked version of the 3.2 and is not GM engine.

this be it. always work engine with 6VE1w , facts.

"the 6VE1W 3.5L DOHC 24V V6 was introduced in 1998 with 215 hp (160 kW) and used until 2004"

see my other post , with facts.

stop guessing.

if the PCM says the VSS is good, it is, the sensor is GOOD.

stop guessing.

if the speedo is dead, and the odometer works this is a bad speedo.

and the no DTC for VSS proves that fact.

the VSS runs many things in your car, and the SCANNer would spit out lots of DTCs for all those other things too.

not just the speedo ./odometer failures.

SCAN it and stop guessing.

all cars, in USA< 1996 now, scan it first.

on newer cars. 10 times that, on my cars there are 1000s of DTCs.

even lost DC power to point X. Y and Z

scan it.
