The speed sensor is located right under the air filter and on the transmission. To replace it you just need to remove the air filter and you will see it on top of the transmission, Click on the link below purchase a replacement

Hi,

It isn't in the best spot, top of the trans-axle in the back closest to firewall. Your call, if you can see it.

Output and Input sensors are NOT the same as Speed Sensors.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

    Thanks for your response!!

    After a Lot of Search, i Found the below information for Caravan Cars ( I was incorrect in my Assumption that Speed Sensors are Different than Input and Output Sensors ) -

    There is two speed sensor for the transmission. there is an output and input I am going to send pictures of the locations of both.



    INPUT SENSOR

    CAUTION: When disconnecting speed sensor connector, be sure that the weather seal does not fall off or remain in old sensor.





    The input speed sensor is located to the left of the manual shift lever (Fig. 25).

    OUTPUT SENSOR

    CAUTION: When disconnecting speed sensor connector, be sure that the weather seal does not fall off or remain in old sensor.



    The output speed sensor is located to the
    right of the manual shift lever (Fig. 26).

    As of now, the above Pictures are generic. Let me know,if the problem Still persists.

    Hope i helped you.

    Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

    The transmission range sensor it the sensor for the automatic
    transmission to find all the shift points in the shifting of all gears.


    If this goes bad it could cause a lot of shifting problems and even
    braking problems i have heard of people losing control of the vehicle
    while driving on the free way. The free way is were you will feel most
    of the symptoms for the range sensor.

    Let me know,if needed further assistance.

    Hope i helped you.

    Thanks
    for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Won't shift out of second gear


Seems to me its one of the speed sensors on the transmission. Their are two, an input speed sensor and an output speed sensor. Both are located at the front side of the trans. case above the solenoid pack, both look the same as each other and just screw into the case. If your getting a reading on the speedometer is the input sensor, if your not getting a reading on the speedometer its the output speed sensor (known as vehicle speed sensor).
