Question about 2006 Ford Ranger

Open Question

After market cruise control, locating VSS speed control wire and hot coil wire

I am trying to install the Audiovox CCS 100 vacuum cruise control on my 2006 Ford ranger w/ 2.3L - 4 cylinder automatic. I cannot find a wiring diagram that will give me the proper splice point for the VSS speed sensor wire as well as a +12V key on hot wire (coil?) Does this vehicle have a VSS send that will work for this application?

Go to a repair shop, or better check on your local library, there must be a manual there.

for ten bucks you can get everything at mitchell1diy. The wiring diagrams are copy protected so its not so easy to copy and paste over.

2011. Why has cruise control failed?


cruise controls are controlled by several units
VSS or road speed sensor, clutch and brake sensors , engine speed (tacho) and the on/off switch
cruise controls will disengage automatically if the road speed is too slow ( higher for manuals than autos ) so if the road speed is below around 20mph it may not engage at all as the VSS says it is too slow for the engine rpms
check all sensors for adjustment

1984 Buick Skylark speed sensor replacement


Don't you m Vehicle Speed Sensor (VSS)

Print


OPERATION

The VSS is located on the transmission and sends a pulsing voltage signal to the ECM which is converted to miles per hour. This sensor mainly controls the operation of the TCC system, shift light, cruise control and activation of the EGR system.


TESTING

  1. To test the VSS, backprobe the VSS terminals with a high impedance voltmeter (set to the AC voltage scale).
  2. Safely raise the entire vehicle using jackstands, so the wheels can rotate freely. Make absolutely sure the vehicle is stable.


CAUTION Do not perform this procedure in a closed area. If the vehicle were to fall from the jackstands during the procedure, it could travel on its own, possibly causing severe bodily injury, as well as property damage.
  1. Start the vehicle, and place it in gear.
  2. Verify that the VSS voltage increases as the drive speed increases.
  3. If the VSS does not produce any AC voltage, or the voltage does not change according to vehicle speed, it can be considered faulty.


REMOVAL & INSTALLATION

See Figure 1

0900c1528025f7b6.jpg enlarge_icon.gifenlarge_tooltip.gif

Fig. Fig. 1: The VSS is usually located in the right rear of the engine compartment-2.3L engine

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  3. Detach the VSS lead from the transaxle.
  4. If necessary, unfasten the governor housing bolts, then remove the housing.
  5. Unfasten the bolt or screw and retainer, then remove the VSS assembly from the vehicle. Remove and discard the O-ring.

To install:
  1. Lubricate a new O-ring with sychromesh transaxle fluid part no. 12345349 or equivalent, then install on the sensor.
  2. Install the VSS assembly, then secure with the retainer and bolt/screw.
  3. If removed, install the governor housing and secure with the retaining bolts.
  4. Attach the VSS lead to the transaxle.
  5. Carefully lower the vehicle.
  6. Connect the negative battery cable

Where is the location of the speed sensor on the 1999 v10 triton f250? Why does my speedo not work?


VSS Sensor The Vehicle Speed (VSS) Sensor input is used by the PCM to determine vehicle speed. The VSS generates a signal that increases in frequency proportionate to vehicle speed. The PCM has a base frequency stored in memory for a distance of one mile. By comparing the input and stored value, the PCM calculates vehicle speed.
VSS types include: photo-optic, permanent magnet generators or hall effect technology. The PCM may use other sensors on the vehicle (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 PCM. 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.
Typical VSS comp-00-00-636.gif

WARNING
To avoid personal injury and/or vehicle damage, refer to the service precautions at the beginning of this section.

---
The Speedometer may not work due to a break in the wire for the VSS, or a bad VSS or a bad instrument cluster.
