Hi!!

Depending on the vehicle you own, there is one sensor on each of the two front wheels and one on top of the transfer case on some pick ups and others have one sensor on each of the rear tires.

The sensor is easyly spotted, goes on the back of the disk or drum and is the only device that has an electrical plug to it.

Good Luck!! Don't forget to rate this post!!

94 Lexus gs300 sets code 42 (back up speed sensor) changed, cleared, several cycles later back on.


Code 42 Vehicle speed sensor circuit fault. What this means is that the circuit has a problem, that can be the VSS or it can be anywhere in the wiring or even the ECM module. You need a scanner to directly see what is going on with the speed sensor signal output. That means a trip to a dealer or well equipped shop that has the correct scanner and knows Lexus repair.

What does the input sensor on your transmisson of a Pontiac G5 se 2007 do


The speedometer not working wouldn't be caused by an input sensor . The VSS - vehicle speed sensor is a direct input to the PCM , the PCM shares is info over the GMLAN data bus.
Speedometer
The instrument panel cluster (IPC) displays the vehicle speed based on GMLAN serial data message from the body control module (BCM). The BCM receives vehicle speed data from the powertrain control module (PCM)/engine control module (ECM) via the GMLAN serial data circuit. The speedometer will default to 0 km/h (0 mph) if:
?€¢
The PCM/ECM detects a malfunction in the vehicle speed sensor circuit.


?€¢
The BCM detects a loss of GMLAN communications with the PCM/ECM.


?€¢
The IPC detects a loss of GMLAN communications with the BCM.


The only way to diagnose these problems is with a factory scan tool , this will check inputs an outputs at the PCM an BCM to the instrument cluster . This avoids guessing an playing the parts game. Your best bet would be to take your vehicle to a qualified repair shop .
Same thing with trans not shifting out of first gear , could be a shift solenoid ! Does it shift manually , moving gear selector through the gears ?

Speed sensor


Hi I'm Peter your code P0720 Output Speed Sensor Circuit Malfunction This diagnostic trouble code (DTC) is a generic OBD-II powertrain code. It is considered generic because it applies to all makes and models of vehicles (1996-newer), although specific repair steps may vary depending on the model.
On electronically controlled transmissions, the Output Shaft Speed Sensor (OSS) is located on the end of the transmission before the drive axles or driveshaft to read the speed of the output shaft which may be used to determine shift scheduling, torque converter engagement schedule and Electronic Pressure Control (EPC) inside the transmission. The Powertrain control module / Engine control module (PCM/ECM) has determined there is a malfunction with the OSS sensor. The PCM/ECM may substitute values based on other sensors to determine shift timing, torque converter operation and EPC pressure if the OSS sensor information is unavailable. The OSS sensor is also commonly used for the speedometer. Note: On some vehicles, the OSS sensor is inline with the Transmission Fluid Temperature (TFT) sensor, if there is a failure with the TFT sensor or associated wiring, the OSS sensor may malfunction as well. If there is another code associated with the TFT sensor as well as the OSS sensor, suspect a possible problem with either sensor, or the wiring in between

Sounds like the RF speed sensor is bad, normally you can set a multimeter to ohms and put it on the disconnected wheel sensor and see if you get a reading off the sensor. If you do, then the sensor is ok, and may be the ring on the drive shaft.
I would swap the sensor out and reset the codes.

code p0720 refers to output shaft speed sensor(OSS)--circuit malfunction====causes--wiring--OSS sensor--ECM/TCM
of it has just happened check the wiring and connections to the transmission for water and corrosion or replace the OSS sensor in the transmission.

Were is speed censour located


the output speed sensor is located on the transmission. while standing in front of the vehicle and looking down at the transmission you will see two rubber hoses. under those hoses you will see the input speed sensor. if you look to the right of that sensor, and you may have to look from underneath the vehicle you will see another sensor that is identical to the input speed sensor. That is the output speed sensor. The output speed sensor is the one that shows how fast you are moving on the speedometer.
