Where is the speed sensor located on a 2002 oldsmobile intrigue

It is on the outside of the transmission where the speedometer cable used to go in older cars. It has a 2 wire barrel shaped about the size of a Cuban cigar.

VSS vehicle speed sensor replacement

There are vehicle speed sensors on all four wheels and usually another on the transmission. Depends on why you are replacing and what system you are having trouble with. The ABS uses the four wheels to gauge speed for stopping and traction control purposes. The sensor on the transmission (output speed sensor) is the one that feeds data to the computer for the speedometer. Take off your tires and the speed sensors are easy to find behind the brake rotors. The trans mounted sensor will be easiest to find by having the new part in hand and finding the corresponding sensor to match.

Replaced output speed sensor on 2002 kia sedona a few times.

Given the transaxle & the age

I would say it is time to either
part with the vehicle,that would be
my suggestion, while you can, or have the
transaxle rebuilt

Lets be realistic here

Were any of those sensors ever tested
or failed a test,I doubt it

Again-- as with the couple thousand lost souls
that come here every week,you do have a check
light on- so you start there as always

I owned a trans shop,your trans is worn out ,enough said

The shifting symptoms are telling you the problems, like it
is talking to you,now you continue to drive it as everyone does
& ruin it for good

Where is the vehicle speed sensor located???

I have a '97 Plymouth Voyager 3.0L with 31te auto trans. The vehicle speed sensor is on the lower back side of the engine/trans housing. It's best if you have a lift or jack up the passenger side front tire. When you get under the engine, you should see it through the undercarriage and mid to passenger side of the vehicle on or near the trans-axle housing. Hope that helps.

My speedometer started intermittently going erratic and at the same time my car would run rough. Finally, the check engine light code PO500 surfaced. Replaced the vehicle speed sensor and it fixed the issue. I could not find the location of the vehicle speed sensor online or in my repair manual, so I thought I would post this to help those that needed to know after I found out. Good luck!

I think your vehicle uses a wheel speed sensor, vs a vehicle speed sensor on trans.
