What year is your car cause on a 95 and later models the code for speed sensor is w/scan tool is p0720 and by check engine light flashing is 1102 and from years 93 and 94 is 14 so need to know year to help you. but it sound like a circuit short if you just added any thing to your car can be the problem too. if wiring was not done right need to re check if added anything new.

Speedo sensor faulty how difficult to replace


How do you know the VSS - vehicle speed sensor is bad ? The speedometer not working , have a DTC - diagnostic trouble code ? Most vehicles now ,from 1996 on , the VSS is an input to the PCM/ECM or TCM-engine control module . The vehicles have a network that modules talk on (serial data bus ) , The engine computer sends speed data to the instrument cluster ,where the microprocessor in the instrument cluster interprets an controls the stepper motor setting the speedo .
What year , make an model vehicle do you have ? GM vehicles had a problem with bad stepper motors !

BMW X3 speedometer not working. code p0500 , p0503


code p 0500 and 503 both refer to the vehicle speed sensor(VSS)---circuit malfunction or intermittent/ errattic high input====causes wiring-=--VSS---ECM--wiring poor connection--other connected system---instrument panel---VSS---communication control module
to have the abs light on I would be checking the communication control module or the ECM

My engine light is on, my speedometer sometimes works and sometimes doesn't register, some times it bounces back and forth.


code p 500 refers to vehicle speed sensor (VSS) --circuit malfunction====causes ---wiring---VSS sensor---ECM
the engine light reports serious faults with both the engine and the transmission
I would go to an accredited auto transmission shop and have the VSS replaced or checked
The VSS drives the speedo, cruise control,gear changes ( reports to the transmission control module (TCM)

Subaru 97 speed sensor trouble code p0500 not passing admissions.. what part to I buy and where is the sensor located?


There are actually two Vehicle Speed Sensors (VSS). I'm going to assume you have a 2.5 liter engine and an automatic transmission.

The Vehicle Speed Sensor 1 (output shaft rotation sensor) is mounted to the extension case (from the outside of the case). The sensor outputs a pulse signal which is transmitted to the TCM where it is converted to vehicle speed.


The transfer clutch drum is connected directly to the rear wheel driving propeller shaft. Vehicle speed sensor 1 on the AWD model detects rear-wheel speed.

Vehicle Speed Sensor 2 provides vehicle road speed information to the ECM. The ECM uses this data to properly determine ignition and fuel delivery curves. The sensor consists of a reed switch and magnetic rotor turned by the speedometer cable.


One rotation of the magnetic rotor opens and closes the reed switch four times, producing a digital signal which is converted to vehicle speed by the ECM. The sensor operates whenever the vehicle is moving with ignition ON. As the transmission rotates, the speed sensor sends a pulsed on/off signal to the ECM.

The speedometer uses VSS 2 for it's signal.

Hope this helps (remember to rate this answer).

My check engie light came on then about a week or so later my speedometer stopped working on my 2000 ford ecsort


The Vehicle Speed Sensor is what tells the Speedometer how fast you are going. Have your check engine light scanned for the code that is set. Replace the Vehicle Speed Sensor if necessary.

Vehicle Speed Sensor (VSS)
Removal
  1. Raise and support the vehicle.
  2. Disconnect the vehicle speed sensor (VSS) electrical connector.
  3. Unclip the heated oxygen sensor (HO2S) wire clip from the VSS bracket.
  4. Remove the VSS retaining bolt.
  5. Remove the VSS.
Installation
  1. To install, reverse the removal procedure.

My speedometer will not work check engine light goes on and off and the overdrive indicator light flashes. All this happens intermittently with hotter weather it seemingly happens more frequently. Scanned...


code p 0500 is for the vehicle speed sensor (VSS) which works the speedo as well as the ratio changes
code p0720 refers to the output shaft sensor --ECM or transmission control module (TCM)
the vss reports to the tcm which reads the road speed and gear ratio and shifts the appropriate solenoid

Bad VSS and rough idle related?


Yes they are related. ECM takes speed reading and makes engine timing and other engine performance changes.Change the sensor and you'll be happy again. sensors are pretty pricey

I have a 94 4runner and I ran the diagnostic and its a 42 code for the OD/off and engine 42. It doesn't shift into over drive sometimes and it'll blink OD/off every now and then, and the speedometer...


Hi,

Code #42 on the 4Runner denotes a problem with the Vehicle Speed Sensor (VSS) circuit.

It means the ECM did not detect a signal from the VSS, above 2,200rpm....which might explain the speedo issue - Does your speedo play up, only when engine running above 2,200rpm or 2,700rpm?

Areas to check (in this order) are:

- Open (or short) in the VSS circuit
- faulty VSS sensor
- ECM fault within VSS circuit


Cheers,

Problem with speedometer for ford focus tdci reg03


This is caused by the little circuit board that runs the speedo or a Vehicle Speed Sensor problem, have any Kragen auto or Auto Zone run a trouble code test to see if a VSS trouble code is present in the memory, if nothing shows replace the speedometer or have it repaired, if there is a code for the VSS replace the sensor on the transmission.
