Cruise control box location. Cruise control does not engage. Service mechanic checked vacuum lines and they seem to be o.k. Suggestions?

cruise controls have to go through a series of sensors and switches before they work
brake pedal sensor , clutch pedal sensor if manual, VSS sensor, rpm (ignition module) control on switch,fuse,
one or a combination will not allow the cruise control to work

1984 Buick Skylark speed sensor replacement

Don't you m Vehicle Speed Sensor (VSS)



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.


  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.


See Figure 1

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 vss located on a 95 gtp

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

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  3. Detach the electrical connector from the VSS, then remove the sensor.
  4. Installation is the reverse of the removal procedure.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

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

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.

Cruise control not working sets but no cruise//

Go to Auto Zone for a FREE scan of your vehicles computer. It sounds like the vehicle speed sensor control (VSS) for your trans is bad. They will find out exacxtly what the problem is if so. The VSS is linked to your computer for the cruise as well

I am installing an autovox ccs-100 in my 2004 Ford F150 stx truck

No it won't work. The ecm likely has all the parameters in it for cruise. Usually you just have to buy the switches and maybe a clockspring.
