It should be on the back of the transmission near where the driveshaft goes in. Buy a new one, jack up your truck and look for the old one on the back of the transmission

SOURCE: My 1996 S-10 Blazer will not shift sometimes and

A faulty VSS (Vehicle Speed Sensor) or related wiring can cause both of your problems, trans and ABS. If the computer doesn't know the vehicle is moving, then it won't shift the trans. If the ABS controller sees wheel speed, but not vehicle speed, it will turn on the ABS light. The VSS is located in the rear transfer case housing. But remember, it may be the VSS, related wiring, a faulty speedo buffer (usually located in the dashboard), ECM, or even the reluctor on the transfer case output shaft. You may want to have a shop scan "data stream", or even have them diagnose the problem.

How to fix code po500 on a 2001 ford ranger


A code P0500 may mean that one or more of the following has happened:
  • The Vehicle Speed Sensor (VSS) is not reading (functioning) properly
  • There is a broken/frayed wire leading to the vehicle speed sensor
  • The vehicle's PCM is not correctly configured for the actual tire size on the vehicle
check all wiring and connectors that lead to the speed sensor. The location of the sensor depends on your vehicle. The sensor could be on the rear axle, transmission, or perhaps the wheel hub (brake) assembly.If the wiring and connectors are OK, then check the voltage at the speed sensor.
If everything looks OK, replace the sensor.

Would a code 720 cause the following problem?


No the speed sensor will not cause misfires at higher speeds and this sensor is located on transmission case up high and towards the tail shaft Not in the tail shaft that one is the vehicle speed sensor and it sets a po500 code.

Code po500 will not clear, speed sensor replaced


You could have a bad wire going to the sensor or the PCM is not configured to the tire size that you have on the truck. So if you have put bigger tires on you truck, it may be causing the problem.
I hope this helps you locate the problem

I have 2000 ford ranger four wheel drive 3.0 and the speedometer is not work and codes po500 vehicle sensor where is it located


Your "Vehicle Speed Sensor" refers to two systems. In your situation it is your transmission mounted speed sensor. It is externally mounted and easy to replace. The other system is known as your "ABS sensors. They are located behind both front rotors and the rear one is on the drive-axle. But I don't think we need to get into that. If I can be anymore help, let me know, good luck.

I need a new Trans for a 1996 ford Taurus GL wagon.


The best way is to use the vehicle VIN number, here is a link to a Ford Vin Number Look-up site, that will tell you the transmission code and the type of transmission you have:

96 ford taurs VSS


The trick is to snake your arm down the back, ajacent to the maifold pipe, and unplug the wiring harness. Should be a 10mm socket to unscrew the bolt that holds the sensor in place. Once the screw was out it was easy to pull the sensor out and rush to Auto Zone and get a new one. Reverse the process in putting the sensor in.
