2008 trcktion control .where the senor is located at

The traction control system on most modern autos uses the input from the wheel speed sensors of the Anti-lock Braking System. There isn't one sensor that governs that system. There is usually one sensor at each wheel. Some older systems use one for both rear wheels that have a solid rear axle. I hope this helps. If you have any other questions, we're all here listening.

cruise control s are governed by by 4 sensors and switches

3--- VSS if auto for road speed input
4---ignition control module -- for rpms input

My 1994 GMC Suburban wont shift out of first.....but will shift to second manually but wont go any higher........?

Sounds like a vehicle speed sensor, it governs shifting based on engine RPM vs Transmission RPM among other things. Located usually on the rear tailshaft or rear transfer case on the majority of 4L60E automatics.

Hi Pieter, The rear shafts both have ABS sensors which are gear like rotors and send signals to the computer. The signals received govern the ABS the traction control and speed sensors which in turn supply info to the transmission control and govern gear change. Have the rotors examined for damage and the pick up sensors which can be located on each of the four wheels. I suspect that one of the rear rotors is out of alignment or there is damage to one of the wheel sensors. Regards John

The engine of my Echo 2001 suddenly misfired while I was travelling on a carriagway at about 50mph. I started the engine sucessfully for once and she ran for another minutes and stopped again. The engine...

This sounds like a crank sensor problem (possibly a cam sensor). This sensor governs engine timing. These sensors suffer from temperature induced faults, as the engine warms up the body of the sensor expands and causes a break in the internal sensor circuit. Often the sensor will work fine whilst the engine is cold but after 15 minutes when the engine is hot then the misfire begins. Check that the sensor connection is on tight and free of dirt/corrosion. The sensor is either located on a) the engine next to the bell housing of the transmission or b) on the 'front' (drive belt end) of the engine next to the crank harmonic balance pulley. It is fairly small black plastic device held in place with a bolt and with an electrical connection to the top of it.

What this mean p1756

P1756 what does this mean: It is transmission related, difinition is: transmission governor pressure not equal to target...its a transmission code this is a common failure... have seen these governer pressure sensors fail often.... most codes are governer pressure sensor volts too high or low, governer pressure sensor not equal to target.. Most of the time you replace the governer pressure sensor and soleniod.. I would recommend you to fix this problem if not you will end up burning the clutches in the trans... The trans pan needs to be removed....the sensor is bolted to the valve body and is located on the pass front side of the valve body.

If the car is fuel injected then the coolent temperature sensor is faulty and needs replacing, if its carburator then it's got a sticking auto choke.
The coolent temp sensor tells the ecu how much more fuel to put in governed on the engine coolant temperature, if the sensor is faulty it does not know that it should be putting more fuel in.

200 Pontiac Grand Am over 3500 RPM loss of power

on almost all gm cars after 96 the engines were governed to not free rev over 4000rpm. when in gear and power braking the rpms stay lower cause of the load on engine. when reving above 3500 rpms the computer cuts back the timing and fuel to reduce engine damage if left to free rev. hop that helps.

Car cut off

I had this happen to my car several years ago. Turned out to be the power train computer module (I think that's what it was called) - some computer sensor that was related to emissions but not the O2 sensor. The federal government requires it so my dealer replaced it at no charge. Mine used to shut off after I hit speeds in excess of 45 mph and then I'd have to restart the car and drive slowly. After checking the battery and alternator, this fix was the last option - never had a problem since!
