Your problem is the speed sensor. The VSS (vehicle speed sensor)

is located on the right side of the transaxle, near where the right side axle shaft

connects to. To access this part is pretty tricky, if you are inexperienced. There

is an aluminum foil covered shield around the wiring connector. You will need to

remove the shield to gain access. You may even have a damaged wiring

connector, that is causing the problem due to the close proximity of this part to

the catalytic converter. If you want to purchase this part from the Ford dealer,

ask the parts counter person for the "basic" part number 9E731. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: speedometer doesn't work and transmission wont shift

Hi, make sure you check the speed cable that runs to the engine, it may be severed. As for the tranny, you have some major gear problems that will require pulling this transmission for a deeper look. i would have a look at the transmission filter as well.

Maybe the speedo itself or wiring coming in behind it is loose.

SOURCE: Vehicle had a rough automatic transmission shift

Still sounds like a bad output speed sensor - check scan the TCM for codes and see what you get. Also check the wiring at and near the output speed sensor connector.

2005 S Isuzu Ascender Speedometer niddle moved all the way to the right of gage and as not moved.


If the odometer is working correctly, the problem is inside the speedometer head.
The speed sensor would be on the side of the transmission if the odometer is not working.

09 Ford Ranger speedometer not working properly


There should be a speed sensor in the transmission for the speedometer and the engine computer. There is a sensor in the rear end for the ABS.
Are you sure you replaced the right sensor ?

They have nothing in common , but if the speedo is not working the trans will not shift , you need to check the speed sencor located on the trans.

Speedometer stopped working and trans won't shift out of low gear. brake light came on at same time. replaced vehicle speed sensor but it didn't fix it


Hi! bigdowgi
Transmission is tide into the speed sencor somehow. I will have to look up some specs and get back with you. check your fuses in the mean time. Hope you at least have a test light. You may be able to do some test yourself, with a voltmeter. Hopefully you have checked the transmission for ATF fluid.
Some time it can be somthing real simple.

Looking for speedometer sencor location on a 95


It should be mounted in the transmission housing itself, near the output shaft, or possibly half way up a cable coming from the transmission.

Speedometer works somestimes


it is the gear in your speedo cable and the cable is not hard to change it normally goes to your front wheel back to your transmission put the truck on ramps put a stop or something behind the rear wheel and then you will see what i am talking about.
