There are two sensors that work together the speed sensor in the rear axle and the output speed sensor in the tranny we replace both when this happens just to be on the safe side

SOURCE: Speedometer/odometer/cruise control isn't working.

It's your speed sensor at the transfercase on the drivers side i believe. Check the wire and clip to the sensor for any break or loose contacts. 
Easy fix and is about a 30 min job to do with simple tools. Un-clip the wire conntection, remove the retainer bolt and slide and sensor out. To install just do everything in reverse and add transmisson oil if needed.

Most of the time, it's going to be the sensor. Keep in mind that there are two sensor's so make sure it's the one on the output shaft at the transfercase. The other one is closer to the front of the transmission on the same side with is the input Volosity speed sensor.
If it was your ABS sensor, you ABS light would come on in your dash.
Good luck and hope this helps

The VSS needs to be checked and replaced.VSS means the Vehicle Speed Sensor. Also the error code 15 is indicating this fault of speed sensor. ·15 - No vehicle speed signal. No vehicle distance (speed) sensor signal detected during road load conditions. So code 15 is saying that the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) is not getting a signal from the Vehicle Speed Sensor (VSS). This is probably due to a bad VSS or wiring problem. This would also cause problems with the speedometer and cruise control (if equipped).
Thanks. Keep updated for any more query. You can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

Speedometer not working on my 2002 jeep liberty.


The routing of the speed sensor wires is located on the rear differential. The problem is that they rub on the E-brake cable and once the wire is exposed they short and the speedometer and any other options running off the speed sensor quit working and that includes the transmission shift points and can cause the torque converter to not unlock and cause stalls. We went to a dealer and got the replacement kit for $32.00. He also took the time to encase the wires in a plastic tubing to avoid this problem again.

Chevy s10 1996 speedometer doesn't work and not shifting correctly


i had the same problem. I replaced the VSS (Vehicle Speed Sensor), mounted on transfer case if you have 4wheel and mounted on transmission if you have 2wheel. I also replaced the brake fuse. Then I disconnected the battery waited a little bit and then reconnected it. And what do you know it was all fixed up.

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.

The speedometer does not work, brake light is on, 4 wheel drive light blinks and ABS light is on. I replaced wheel bearings and all four speed sensors. any suggestions?


If the speedometer doesn't work, I usually look for a VSS or vehicle speed sensor, but on the Ford Escape, the Wheel Speed Sensors detect speed.

The ABS light may be on if there isn't a signal going from the speed sensors to the ABS module, or the module is bad, itself.

I don't know about the 4 wheel drive light blinking, but it could signal trouble in that system, as well, as far as the electronic control of 4 wheel drive or the Transmission Range selector Also, does the transfer case have enough fluid in it?

Transfer Case NOTE: Repair of the transfer case is limited to seals, gaskets and output flange on automatic transaxle vehicles only. In vehicles equipped with a manual transmission, or if any of the geared components, tapered roller bearings, case cover or internal shafts fail, a new transfer case must be installed.
NOTE: The transfer case is sealed from the transaxle and has its own oil pump. The transfer case uses SAE 75W-140 synthetic gear lubricant and holds 12 ounces. The transfer case fill plug is located on the housing cover.

The speedometer problem could also be a bad speedometer gauge, but that is rare, these days and is not indicated by the ABS light being on that says that maybe a signal has been lost to the wheel speed sensors themselves.

I hope this helps to understand what may be going wrong, even though you did the right thing by changing the wheel speed sensors.

Oh, by the way, I would scan the OBD-II computer with an ABS Brakescan tool to see if any particular wheel is still not reading or sending speed data to the ABS module.

May I suggest the Actron Brakescan tool which covers most domestic vehicles from 1996 to 2005?

Good luck on this repair.

Speedometer/Odometer works only intermittently


You need to replace the speedometer gear. Its on the passenger side of transmission at the rear, not the magnetic sensor on top. That one is for the computer not the speedometer. Unscrew the sensor and unbolt the gear housing to get to it. I worked for an Isuzu dealer and have sold many of these gears. You can go to www.myisuzuparts.com section 2-25

1990 wrangler YJ speedometer doesn't work ( electrical?)


Ok...if i have this right, you have a cable driven speedometer with a gizmo connected in between which you bypassed with one continuous cable. and the speedometer still does not work? If so, find another working unit and replace it. If you find a unit with a reading close to what yours reads, that's fine. keep the reciept for the unit and just make a note on what actual miles were at the change. A dealer would need to be more precise but its over 20 years old! no one is going to care waht the miles are and it's more important to know hwo fast you are going!!!

SPEEDOMETER DOT WORK


Ok well I Have 2 1992 Troopers, The Speed Sensor is On the Transfer case. The Shop Manual, don't give the exact Location of the Sensor, But i can tell you is that it is held in there by a Bracket that has only one bolt holding it to the transfer case. it Should be the only thing on the case that has a Long skinny cable coming out of it.
