Transmission input output speed sensors

I need to find the location of the speed sensors on a 1996 town and country. If any one has any pictures or diagrams that would be so helpful. Thank you

    I know that the transmission is not toast. I took the car to amacco and they tried to tell me it was as well. I then took it to a friend of mine that said that the codes he pulled did not indicate a replacement of the transmission. But when it is driven, the speedometer bounces all over the place and then that causes the transmission to bounce all over.

    I have done a ton of research on this issue and have found that 95% of the time it is the output sensor, or the sensor that is under the battery.

The speed sensor is on the tailshaft of the transmission,on the passenger side of the car,it has 3 wires. The output sensors are located on the front of the transmission about mid-way up the housing & only have 2 wires. Note the output sensors are not responsible for vehicle speed. Only the output shaft speed is recorded. They are for finding the correct cvi(clutch volume index) only. If you have a cvi issue,the transmission is toast.

    Well then,if you know it all,go for it. I'm only a measly 5 star gold Master Tech & have over 17 years experience. How dare I !! Ammco,btw, is a very good company. They built my trans for my 1970 Dodge Dart 340,built to the hilt. The trans blew & they towed it 85 miles back & rebuilt it again. No charge. Mine was a full race unit they no longer build. They still have an incredible warranty & good service.

If you have a 4 speed unit, there is an input speed sensor and an output speed sensor on the transmission.both of them (2 wires sensors)can be seen from the front of the vehicle, of course under the hood :)
the output sensor is the 2 wires sensor on the left side of the vehicle.Don't foeget to replace the connector!

The input and output speed sensors look identical on the connector side. The one over the solenoid pack is the input, the one closer to the left frame rail or left front wheel is the output sensor. I hope this helps.

The van will not shift and the speed omiter dosn't work. i can't locate the speed sensor to chance it


I am assuming you have a 4-speed transmission?
There are 2-speed sensor on the front of the transmission. Input and Output Speed Sensors.
They are level with each other, right above the top line of the Solenoid (wiring harness goes into this box-like assembly) The one that is closest to the Solenoid is the Input Sensor. The one (at the same level) towards the left side of the van is the Output sensor.
I believe a 1-in wrench will work, after you unplug the sensor. Torque going on for both is 20 ft-lbs. Before replacing the sensors - you may remove the sensors and clean the metal particles off the interior tips of the sensors and reinstall and check operations.
Let me know if this helped, or if you have additional information or questions. Feel free to contact me at fixya.com

Trans


Check the speed sensor on the tranny cause if the speedometer is not working the tranny will not shift.The computer will not recognize that the transmission is in motion so will not shift.
