You may have a bad Vehicle Speed Sensor [VSS] which is mounted on the transmission. This sensor tells the computer, transmission, and dash how fast you are going and if the signal is lost then the transmission won't know when to shift and the speedometer will quit working. There should be a related service code stored in the system that will help with the diagnosis.

My 98 z71 won't shift when the indicter light goes


Your car reads off of the trans. Sensors to shift. You are going to need an input and output sensor, that will fix your speedometer also.

My 98 concorde is stuck in second gear and the speedometer quit working at the same time what would make it do this


I would say the speed sensor in the transaxle is the problem with both issues. The body computer needs the speedo to tell which gear to use, and second gear is the default when the system is in fail mode.

How to find speed sensors to install, 1997 Plymouth Breeze, automatic, 2.0. Car won't shift out of first gear.


If your tachometer and speedometer are working , then it is not likely the shaft output speed sensor that is not working. Your car is in limp home mode , and more often than not it is the transmission computer that is dead. It is usualy mounted just behind the radiator on the drivers side of the car. It has cooling fins on it and looks somewhat like a stereo amplifier.
I recently replaced several sensors on a 2.5 L cirrus with no luck , picked up a computer at the auto wrecker and all is good now. Be sure to disconnect the battery , and touch the positive wire to the negative post to de-energize everything before unpluging the computer.

Most likely your speed sensors are bad, this causes the transmission to seem like its "stuck" in second gear or in "limp" mode. I can also be your TCM (transmission control module). But from your description, it's most likely the speed sensors located on the top of the transmission. Make sure you replace them with an exact replacement are they are not interchangeable.
Hope this helps.

The transmission will not shift gears and the


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.

Transmission quit shifting after going through a shallow puddle


Probably got water into connections for electronics. They have to be dried out. Don't know what facilities you have available to you as far as compressed air, or heat concentrated on area. I would make a point of removing them, or having it done & cleaning them well, and adding di-electric grease to those connections to hopefully avoid same again.
