It is acually called the vehicle speed sensor I do believe. It should should be located on the top of your transmission with a wiring harness attached to it. It should also have 1 bolt holding it in also. Whatever you do, do not rotate the gear when you remove it. Try to mark the exact way it came out when you replace the sensor. When you pull the sensor out it will have this gear attached to it which will need to be placed into the new sensor and put back into the vehicle in the same way it came out or you will throw a code and it will not be pretty. Good luck, hopefully I didn't scare you it can be a simple repair just mind your P's and Q's.

SOURCE: Changed oil in transmission and filters now won't go into gear

I Fixed it !!! What happened was that the "O" ring that came with the filter wasn't fully seated in the pump before i put the filter on. It was kind of hard to get it to seat properly I had to get a hammer and a socket w/ an extention and tap it in. It wont go in with finger pressure alone. To find out if this is what the proble is then take off the pan and remove the filter, if the "O" ring is attached to the filter when u remove it then this is the problem.

SOURCE: engine code p0700 need help

I have been diving into my factory service manual, and the P0700 should have another trans trouble code stored with it, a "Generic" code reader may not be able to read the other trans code, if it after a trip to the dealer to sort out this code turns up nothing (no other stored codes) then there may be a problem in the TCM (Transmission control module) so u should get this to the dealer and have them read the codes and report them to u.

SOURCE: Dodge Durango 1998 5.2L Output Speed Sensor code P0720 Location

Its in different locations depending on if its 2wd or 4wd. For 2wd its in front of the drice shaft or for 4wd its in the tranfer case, just look for a white shape like box with wires plugged into it and you need a socket to remove it, iam not sure how much it is to replace as the cost varies at different shops.

1st try and search for a vaccum leak, due to the fact that these vehicles have had some bad problems with the length of wires and hoses, if there is a vaccum leak in the vehicle somewhere that will trigger other malfunctions in your vehicle. Using a can of starting fluid or Brake cleaner spray lightly spray around our engine til you hear the motor rev-up and the spot you have sprayed will determine where your vaccum leak will be. And then check under your distributor cap for any moisture be sure to take a rag and wipe and residue off. Also check the firing order on your distributor.

2000 dodge durango speedometer stoped check engin light on abs light on i was told it was the speed sensor how do i know


The below test is generic, but gives you a general idea how to test the sensor. Most shops skip to the resistance test (at the bottom), if they do any test at all. A new sensor is $17 at autozone. Let me know if you have any questions.

A defective vehicle speed sensor may cause different problems depending on the computer output control functions. A defective vehicle speed sensor (VSS) may cause improper converter clutch lockup, improper cruise control operation, and inaccurate speedometer operation.
  • Prior to VSS diagnosis, the vehicle should be lifted on a hoist so the drive wheels are free to rotate.
  • Backprobe the vss output wire and connect the voltmeter leads from this wire to ground.
  • Select the 20-volt AC scale on the voltmeter.
  • Then start the engine.
  • Place the transaxle in drive and allow the drive wheels to rotate. If the VSS voltage signal is not 0.5 volt, or more, replace the sensor.
  • When the VSS provides the specified voltage signal, backprobe the VSS terminal at the PCM and repeat the voltage signal test with the drive wheels rotating.
  • If 0.5 volt is available at this terminal, the trouble may be in the PCM (powertrain control module).
  • When 0.5 volt is not available at this terminal, turn the ignition switch off and disconnect the wire from the VSS to the PCM.
  • Connect the ohmmeter leads across the wire. the meter should read zero ohm.
  • Repeat the test with the ohmmeter leads connected to the VSS ground terminal and the PCM ground terminal.
  • This wire should also have zero ohm resistance. If the resistance in these wires is more than specified, repair the wires.
  • The condition of a speed sensor can be checked by going through the diagnostic routines for the system.
  • If this test indicates that a sensor is faulty, the sensor should be replaced.
  • Speed sensors can also be checked with an ohmmeter. Most manufacturers list a resistance specification.
  • The resistance of the sensor is measured across the sensor's terminals.
  • The typical range for a good sensor is 800 to 1400 ohms of resistance

Where is the propeller shaft speed sensor located?


The speed sensor is located out on the transmission extension housing (tail housing), and there can be two different types of sensors used.

Here are some images both 2-WD and 4-WD to help assist you, and let my know if you require any further assistance.

I replaced the output speed sensor on my 98 Durango 5.2 4wheel drive on the back of the transmission, still no speedometer. what do i need to replace?


ABS light on too. You need to replace the speed sensor in the top of the rear differential. The speedometer is ran off the differential sensor.

replace the left front wheel hub assy. with 4 wheel abs. The spedometer works off of the left front wheel sensor. It will fix the abs/brake light and the spedometer will start working
