The below test is generic, but gives you a general idea how to test the sensor. Most shops skip to the resistance test (at the bottom), if they do any test at all. A new sensor is $17 at autozone. Let me know if you have any questions.

A defective vehicle speed sensor may cause different problems depending on the computer output control functions. A defective vehicle speed sensor (VSS) may cause improper converter clutch lockup, improper cruise control operation, and inaccurate speedometer operation.

  • Prior to VSS diagnosis, the vehicle should be lifted on a hoist so the drive wheels are free to rotate.
  • Backprobe the vss output wire and connect the voltmeter leads from this wire to ground.
  • Select the 20-volt AC scale on the voltmeter.
  • Then start the engine.
  • Place the transaxle in drive and allow the drive wheels to rotate. If the VSS voltage signal is not 0.5 volt, or more, replace the sensor.
  • When the VSS provides the specified voltage signal, backprobe the VSS terminal at the PCM and repeat the voltage signal test with the drive wheels rotating.
  • If 0.5 volt is available at this terminal, the trouble may be in the PCM (powertrain control module).
  • When 0.5 volt is not available at this terminal, turn the ignition switch off and disconnect the wire from the VSS to the PCM.
  • Connect the ohmmeter leads across the wire. the meter should read zero ohm.
  • Repeat the test with the ohmmeter leads connected to the VSS ground terminal and the PCM ground terminal.
  • This wire should also have zero ohm resistance. If the resistance in these wires is more than specified, repair the wires.
  • The condition of a speed sensor can be checked by going through the diagnostic routines for the system.
  • If this test indicates that a sensor is faulty, the sensor should be replaced.
  • Speed sensors can also be checked with an ohmmeter. Most manufacturers list a resistance specification.
  • The resistance of the sensor is measured across the sensor's terminals.
  • The typical range for a good sensor is 800 to 1400 ohms of resistance

My speedometer and cruise control stopped working on my 2000 dodge durango I replaced engine speed sensor and that did not fix problem. Any suggestions?


What engine speed sensor ? Location ? The vehicle speed sensor signal comes from the anti-lock brake control module , to the PCM -engine control module . Speed Information to the instrument cluster comes from the PCM on the CCD serial data bus , Suggest you google Chrysler CCD data bus . Are any warning lights lit on the instrument cluster ? ABS , Check engine etc... Sorry but I suggest you take your vehicle to a qualified repair shop that has the diagnostic tools to find the problem . http://www.cnblogs.com/shangdawei/p/3570499.html

2000 dodge durango abs and brake ligth comes on after driving for a minute


The brake and abs light come on if a problem is detected. When the abs light is on the abs is NOT working. You need to pull the codes from the ecm to detect the problem

2000 dodge durango abs light is on and reads a code 72 on scaner?


Hi, there is a speed sensor causing your problem which is the one on the top of the rear differential. Its the one that runs the speedometer, picked up by the abs module. The abs is disabled if the light is on, your brakes will stayed locked if you start to slide.



I'd start with replacing the rear speed sensor and see what happens. This should bring your speedometer back if nothing else. If you still have the other code coming back you'll have to replace the abs control module. That code is a direct internal failure of the control module, no diagnostics required.

Uncle put new brake pads on vehicle (he worked on front and back brakes) and now the speedometer doesn't work, the abs light is on, check engine light, and the break light is on. what could have happened ....


Check for disconnected ABS sensors. The front sensors in the front are located next to the axle shafts. The rear sensor is located on the rear differential housing itself on top, in the middle. The ABS is monitored by the computer for performance. The ABS kicks on when the vehicle comes from a certain speed to a dead stop, keeping the wheels from locking up. That could be the reason for the speedometer not working. Or it could be a bad speed sensor. Both can also trigger the check engine light because it is monitored by the computer. The brake light usually comes on due to low fluid level. It can trigger the light, but not be low enough to impact brake performance. I hope this helps.

I replaced the output speed sensor on my 98 Durango 5.2 4wheel drive on the back of the transmission, still no speedometer. what do i need to replace?


ABS light on too. You need to replace the speed sensor in the top of the rear differential. The speedometer is ran off the differential sensor.

Brake light and ABS light is on and the speedometer, odometer and tripometer are inoperable


replace the left front wheel hub assy. with 4 wheel abs. The spedometer works off of the left front wheel sensor. It will fix the abs/brake light and the spedometer will start working
