Where is the speedo sensor? - 2000 Ford Focus

Posted by on

  • JRhea Nov 17, 2008

    I have a Diagnostic code of P0720 for the output speed sensor. The only sensor I can see on the transmission is on the bottom just above the shaft on the side where the exhaust pipe comes down. I saw it while changing the oil. I'm not totally sure if this is the output speed sensor but it is a logical location for it. I ordered a part from Auto Zone that came up as a vehicle speed sensor which I figured was another name for the same part but when I tried to install it, it did not fit and has a different connector.

Yes it was the wrong part. I took it back and decided to order from a dealer which turned out to be cheaper. Who would have thought that the dealer would be cheaper. Car works fine now.

Speedo works intermitently 99 outback legacy


I had to replace my vehicle speed sensor in my 98 Legacy GT. you can unscrew it from the transmission and hook it up to a drill to spin it and it will show the RPM's on the speedo, but it could be the sensor or the speedo head. The sensors are around $120, and having a speedo repaired can be a few hundred at the max. It's most likely the vehicle speed sensor only because that is usually the problem nine times out of ten. I hope this info helps.

Hi there, I have a speedo problem on my Diamate.When i take off the speedo stays at zero then after you build speed it shoots straight up to 80kmh,then drops suddenly when you slow down.Any ideas would be...


Hi,

The speedo dial on your cluster is controlled by the Vehicle Speed Sensor.

This sensor is mounted on top of the transmission case.

This condition is either caused by a loose connection (wirig loom) or a faulty sensor (see item # 7 on diagram below).

It sounds like you have a bad speedo sensor in the transmission. The sensor is usualy not all that expensive, and shouldn't be too hard to replace.
