Why? got DTC errors? please post them. just curious , me too.
5speed stick, there is no such transmission here. ok JK08 ,usa.
4wd?

mine is 6 speed stick, the 5speed option is the automatic.
6sp is DEH trans.or NSG 370
with NV241 transfer case.
my wild guess is its really a 6 speed manual, with 4wd.
am I correct>?
and is USA, not an Export.
my fsm does not cover, 6 speed VSS, oops.
i wonder if the VSS on the 6peed, uses speed from the ABS.
the automatic vss is on the left side of the tranny case. and input speed and engine rpm speed. but that is A/T.

M/T as your post clearly states is another matter.
the parts list for the 370 box shows no sensors at all ,just 1 reverse switch, then i look at the car 241 transfer case then the parts list.
it too , dont have a sensor. only , 4wd switch and is not a speed sensor.
so that leaves 3 more,
front axle, no.
rear axle ,no (only a lock up switch option)
leaving what, ABS.
must be the genius at JEEP said, one day, well gee abs knows speed, why not just get that for free on all 4speeds.

the A/T needs the sensors to shift right, but not any manual ever.

The electric drawings for jeep jk08 show no speed sensors at all on the M/T. (dedicated to forward speed via the transmission side)

see here a nice JK08 full parts list in PDF.

SOURCE: 2000 jeep wrangler are sythetic lubes used in axils and trans

Hello grega1967, your Jeep Wrangler came from the factory with gear oil in the axles and manual transmission, but the transfer case uses transmission fluid. It is a NP231 and your axles are Dana 30 in the front and Dana 35 in the rear. They should have a 4.10 gear ratio due to you having a 2.5 liter 4 cylinder.

I hope this helps,

The vehicle speed sensor is located in the transfer case housing. To get your speedometer working you will have to connect the wires back to the speed sensor.

My speedometer and odometer quit working. I replaced the speed sensor and the speedo gear looks good. Whats next?


if I remember correctly, the speed sensor plugs into the trans and there were some concerns with the gear in the trans

simple test, with the engine running, have someone watch your speedometer while you hold the sensor in your hand, plugged in and spin the gear. If the speedometer works then suspect the trans gear
