    There is no guarantee the VSS is the problem but more than likely that is exactly what is wrong. Good luck.

Kicks really hard when shifting from park to drive... but not from park to reverse, neut., 1st, 2nd, or 3rd. speedometer won't work. won't shift outta low gear, just revs up like it's in neutral.


sounds to me like the vss (vehicle speed sensor) isnt working...its on the passanger side of the car on the top of the transmission..(just above where the right side axle is installed) youll see a 2 wire connector...sometimes they come unlpugged and when that happens no speedometer=no shifting because it doesnt know that its in motion,therefore doesnt know when or too shift..,

Speedometer stopped workin and transmission wont shift out of first


The tachometer acts as the trigger for auto shifting the gears. Since the speedometer has conked out, it will assume your car speed to be in that range and therefore not shifting up as usual. Replace the speedometer and after doing that check the response on their computerized diagnostics to check the correct response is read by the chip which triggers the gear change.........................sodeep
