I have a 2001 chevy venture I changed the vss sensor like 3 time it will work for a few days then I'll start acting up again and the speedometer will stop working how can I fix it?


Do you have any other problems with the vehicle ? Transmission shifting problems , fluctuating idle etc... The vehicle speed sensor does not control the speedometer directly , it is an input to the PCM/ECM - engine computer .
Speedometer
The IPC displays vehicle speed as determined by the PCM. The IPC receives a class 2 message from the PCM. The Vehicle Speed Sensor (VSS) discrete signal is pulled up to ignition voltage in the PCM. The IPC uses the VSS data received from the PCM and a software program to determine the proper vehicle speed to display.
To tell what is happening a factory scan tool needs to be hooked up to check serial data communications between the PCM an instrument cluster . Also could be a bad stepper motor for speedometer , GM had faulty ones back in that year.

2001 Ford Windstar Speedometer stopped working after I installed Hub Bearings


The sensor is attached to the output shaft of the transmission and should not be affected by the work that you did. Are the ABS sensors ok?

I have a 1996 Honda Accord with 268k miles that sputters at the same timethe speedometer needle fluctuates wildly. But I do have a new Vehicle Speed Sensor. This typically only happens when the engin


I am no Honda expert, but a similar problem happened to my ex sister in-laws Ford Taurus. The speed odometer would jump around and it had trouble shifting (automatic transmission). After driving it I changed out the speed odometer sensor on the transmission and it's been fine ever since. I changed out the sensor because if the cars computer cannot tell how fast the car is traveling then fail safes in place go into effect and the computer will do it's best to keep the cars rpm's down based on the speed indicator and not let it shift or shift properly either. If it's getting false speeds then it will shut down the motor when the speed gets to high and allow it to run as the speeds fall (jumping speed odometer needle). It effects the transmission shift points also. It will either shift erratically or not shift out of say 2nd gear, so that the cars engine can't get damaged based on what signal the speed sensor is sending the computer.

Hey Todd I have a 2005 5.7 dodge magnum and it won't change gears as i speed up while driving also speedometer stopped working


EASY ONE.... Your VSS (Vehicle SPEED SENSOR) stopped working and it is this Sensor that gives the PCM/ECM the information to change gears. Once you change your VSS, and get it working, the Transmission will start working again...

I am Assuming that the Transmission stopped working at the same time the Speedometer did? Is that right?

If it is, then this is a easy fix. 1 bolt and one Wire Connector and DONE....
