Question about 2005 Chevrolet Suburban
Speed Sensors (2 types)
Removal & Installation
Carefully remove the sensor by pulling it straight out of the bore. DO NOT use a screwdriver, or other device to pry the sensor out of the bore. Prying will cause the sensor body to break off in the bore.
VSS types include: photo-optic, permanent magnet generators or Hall Effect technology. The EMS may use other sensors on the vehicle such as ABS wheel speed to validate VSS operation.
VSS information is used to calculate vehicle loads including: torque converter application, cruise control, fuel cutoff/speed governance strategies, instrument panel speedometer and more.
Modified drivetrain components such as final gear sets and/or tires can alter VSS input values to the EMS. Improper signals can alter torque converter clutch (TCC) application, shift points, cruise control operation as well as many other systems relying on vehicle speed input.
Related Symptoms A faulty speed sensor due to loose connections, bad grounds, high resistance in the circuit, or opens in the circuit can cause the following symptoms.
