Need help locating vss on trans for a 2000 F350 4X4 7.3 motor

1. Your ABS/ VSS can be removed and cleaned with just a clean rag, no need for wd-40 or any other solvent, also carefully clean out the hole on top of the differential, lift the vehicle (place in neutral) and check the sprocket wheel inside the pumpkin for possible missing teeth or to see if it is loose.

2. The VSS (part # F85F-9E731-AA) can also be tested with an ohms meter, it should measure ~1.9 K-ohm or higher (lower than 1.9 requires replacement).

3. The VSS is a hall-effect sensor, connect a volt meter to the sensor connector and wave a piece of metal (pair of pliers or flat metal) about a half inch away from the sensor, and you will consistently see a variation in voltage, if no movement on the volt meter is observed, replace the sensor.

4. You also have the two front wheel ABS sensors, try cleaning them first, and carefully reinstalling them.

5. When the VSS sensor is malfunctioning, the PCM may try to get input from the TSS (turbine speed sensor, top of the transmission), and as it turns out, the same return wire is used by the OSS (output speed sensor, tail end of transmission), check these two sensors also, clean them and test them (1.10 K-ohm or higher). These are also Hall Effect sensors, so check for voltage as described in paragraph 3 above.

6. Pay attention to see if your ABS light blinks when you start the vehicle, just before it stays solid. If this is happening, count the number of blinks, as this is actually a code and the blinking means the vehicle is trying to communicate with you.

7. Last, if nothing above corrected the problem, I would start tracing RFI (radio frequency interference), one sure area is usually your fuel pump (wires running along side VSS wiring. ABS/VSS wiring is routed directly to the ABS module.

I hope this information works for you.

There are two "speed sensors" though that can be confused at the parts store. They don't look the same but they are listed almost the same. The one on the rear diff is listed as the "ABS speed sensor"....the one on the tranny is listed as the "Speed sensor" The rear one is the cheapest and easiest to replace...about $12.

Abs light stays on and odometer quit working

When Yellow ABS warning light illuminates during normal operation, the system has detected a problem and has stored a Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC). Loss of power to module will cause system to be deactivated and Yellow ABS warning light to be illuminated. This fault will not set a DTC.
The Rear Anti-Lock Brake System II (RABS II) Speed Sensor is located on the Rear Differential Case. This sensor sends the speed signal of the rear tires to the RABSII Control Module, which also receives the Turbine Shaft Speed Sensor. The RABSII Control Module uses both signals to control the RABS II Proportioning Valve. If the RABSII Control Module does not receive both signals, the ABS Light will come ON.
Finally, the Sensor I think is giving you trouble. The Turbine Shaft Speed (TSS) Sensor is located on the transmission tail. This sensor sends the speed signal to the PCM which in turn sends it to the Speedometer and to the RABSII Module. If this sensor is disconnected or inoperative, the Speedometer won't work and the ABS light will come ON. Check electrical connector to the sensor, make sure is clean, free of corrosion and properly connected.
Before you replace the sensor, have the computer codes scanned for FREE at AutoZone, Checkers or similar autoparts store.
Good Luck!! A HELPFUL - 4 THUMBS - rating for this solution would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for using FixYa.

Speedo suddenly not working and two warning lights appeared on dashboard one being ABS light warning light.

If the ABS (and likely the traction control) light came on at the same time that the speedometer stopped working, you likely have a faulty wheel speed sensor at the right rear wheel. You can test this by swapping the two rear wheel speed sensors (ABS sensors). If the speedometer then works (but the ABS & Traction control lights stay on), replace the sensor that is now at the left rear (was at the right rear). If no change, you may have a fault in the ABS & Traction control - control unit.

Overdrive contoll button is blinking on 200 f-350 7.2 powerstroke

It sound is if your ABS/Speed sensor is the culpret.  Try this fairly inexpensive repair before you bring it in for a Diagnostic, which can run anywhere from $89.95 & up.  Go to the local ford dealer in your area and ask them for the ABS Sensor in your rear axle differential. The base part number being 9E731. This part runs roughly for about $20.00+ and your own time to replace it.
