The wire color is gray/black located at the passenger kick panel or at the PCM 50 pin plug, pin one. The PCM (Powertrain Control Module) is under the hood, on the driver side fender. On vehicles with premium audio, it is also found at the radio, 24 pin plug, pin 14.

Hi Hodgson, If you want,you can go on and buy you vehicle info for under 20 bucks for a year. That will give you all the wire diagrams you need. You will be looking for the vehicle speed sensor signal wire . ( VSS). I would look at the pin out connector of the computer and it will be there. Most of these have 3 wires,one power 5V, and one ground and the other is the signal. Goodluck and let me know if this helps. If you need more info I will be happy to answer any questions you have.Thanks....Dan

NO NO NO the VSS sensor has three wires 5 volt reference signal return and ground easy test is to check v-ref and ground. signal return must be tested by using ohm meter checking from computer plug to sensor one of the wires has open circuit this sensor is used to control transmission shifting also can you judge your speed better than the cops radar.

Hi, I'm not familiar with the part, but the diagram shows it behind the glove box next to the ECM. Go in thru the bottom--remove the sound barrier, remove the EMC, then remove the buffer. What I recommend is to see if you can get one at a salvage yard. Otherwise, they are about $50 on eBay. Thanks for using FixYa.

It's possible, was the light out before the audio tec worked on it, if so go back to the guy and ask him if he may have moved a connector or something when working on the stereo. don't go in and accuse him be nice and he will most likely have you fixed in no time.
