What is a Vehicle Speed Sensor and what happens if it fails?


Back in the 1990s car companies switched from using a speedo cable to using a speed sensor. The sensor is mounted in the side of the transmission and measures axle speed for the speedometer and the computer.

I have a 1999 dodge ram 2500 with a diesel. i changed both speed sensors and my speedo dont work and my abs, light and brake light is on as well, when they run a code scanned no codes come up for the


NO code ? the first thing is to make sure all the fuse are good, the next thing is to connect a scan tool and check for readings to speed sensors.

Some of these use the wheel speed sensors to control the speedo and abs , the speed sensors in the transmission are used to control gear shifting, make sure the wheel sensors are working, the most common problems are the wiring to the rear sensor and the rear sensor itself, check on the rear end on the top and make sure connection is good and maybe replace that sensor and see what happens, i have run into this problem a few time but some were diffrent. one was a bad rear speed sensor another one was the cluster and the last was the abs module.

I would start with checking all the fuses first, then move on to replacing the rear speed sensor located on the rear top of the diffrential . good day.

Why has my SSPS light turned on..what is the problem and how to solve it?


SPSS or Speed Sensitive Power Steering warning light.
Not something you can fix unless you know how to pull a steering column out and have a scan tool to reset the light once the sensor is replaced. The sensor itself is expensive ( over $200 )

You might have something wrong with your power steering. Could mean low power steering fluid if you haven't check it lately. Bad sensor like what happen to my car or things wrong with your power steering pump,control arms

The only thing that happens with a bad sensor is that you have full time power assist.
Speed Sensitive Steering reduces the amount of power assist at hwy speeds so as to give the driver better "road feel".

Hope this helps and just keep in mind that your feedback is important and I'll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer. Thank you for using FixYa.

Hi:
This same thing happened to my daughter,s car, and it ended up being fixed with a transmission speed sensor. This sensor not only runs the speedometer, it helps tell the transmission when to shift too.

Mazda 626 (2000) ABS light comes on sometimes


This is most likely caused by an erratic wheel speed sensor when the car is turned on it does a abs system check. When the light goes on and off it is because probblem only shows up when wheel speed sensor signal is vaulty. Since you just did the front brakes and know the problem started, it is most likely that the sensor got damaged or misaadjusted. The other thing you need to check is, the sensor is magnetic and can catch alot of debris, like metal shavings from a freshly turned rotor or other metal particles. I would see if there clean and the reluctors are clean to, also check connection and wire make sure it was not damaged. The other thing that can happen but is least likely is that, materials can be pushed into the hydraulic control module. This happens by forcing the piston to the very bottom without opening the bleeder valve since, this is where dirt and corrosion usually accumulates.

i had this problem with mine if your cable spins wen the car is moving its not the gear box end or the cable its the speed sensor in the speedo its self its very easy to fix you have to strip the speedo out of the case the sensor is only small and on the under side of the speedo the sensor is about 50 mm long and 10 mm wide change that and it should be ok
oh remember to reset your ecu
