    I just changed the VSS on my 93 G20 van. Took it for a test drive and it worked great. Then two days later I take it out again and my ABS light is back on, the speedometer is going crazy, and it can't figure out when to shift. What else can i check and how??????

I would recommend that you take your car to Auto Zone, or Oreilys and have your alternator tested.It is free of charge and can be done without removing it.

I just got finished dealing with the same exact situation you are having. I ended up having to replace the battery and alternator.

Post back after you have tried this suggestion. Thank you for choosing Fixya!

Look for a high resistance or bad ground off of the e.c.u. computer, acts like its looking for a ground and needs to go thru other circuits to complete it

The ABS light is on, because you have no speed signal. The transmission is not shifting for the same reason. The core of your problem is the speed signal. I would first check the speed sensor wires again. One of them may be broken. If not, then you may have popped the ECM (Vehicle Eletronic Control Module). Good luck.

Vehicle speed sensor, wheel speed sensor, your VSS operates you MPH and tells the trans how fast you are going and when to shift, it is telling the trans that your not moving so why would it shift? Next your ABS wheel speed sensor tell the car what wheel is moving at what speed to activate traction control and abs systems both are very sensitive and easy to break

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.

Volvo abs lights stays on


Usually the ABS computer knows what it is doing. You may want someone to hookup a scanner to the ABS test port.
When I had my speedometer and odometer act up, it turned out to be a bad alternator. You might want to check yours.

Transmission doesnt shift abs & brake light on speedometer doesnt work


I had the same problem with ABS light and speedometer, I was told that it is the transmission control module. It has not yet stopped shifting but I have had times where it just wont stay running. It will start and then stall. Hope this helps.
