If you have someone check the engine computer for trouble codes, you'll probably find a code for the speed sensor in the transmission.

2002 4 runner has a P0500 and the speedometer does not work, also abs light and brake light and traction light is on


Here is the definition of the code.
You replaced the sensor which is the easiest thing to do, now you will have to troubleshoot the circuit back to the computer. Note the reference to the combo meter in the circuit. You may want to research this online.

P0500 TOYOTA Description The vehicle speed sensor outputs a 4 pulse signal for every revolution of the rotor shaft, which is rotated by the transmission output shaft via the driven gear. After this signal is converted into a more precise rectangular waveform by the waveform shaping circuit inside the combination meter, it is then transmitted to the Engine Control Module (ECM). The ECM determines the vehicle speed based on the frequency of these pulse signals.

I have a 94 4runner and I ran the diagnostic and its a 42 code for the OD/off and engine 42. It doesn't shift into over drive sometimes and it'll blink OD/off every now and then, and the speedometer...


Hi,

Code #42 on the 4Runner denotes a problem with the Vehicle Speed Sensor (VSS) circuit.

It means the ECM did not detect a signal from the VSS, above 2,200rpm....which might explain the speedo issue - Does your speedo play up, only when engine running above 2,200rpm or 2,700rpm?

Areas to check (in this order) are:

- Open (or short) in the VSS circuit
- faulty VSS sensor
- ECM fault within VSS circuit


Cheers,

What controls when an automatic shifts ? 02 4runner seems to stay too long in any gear, particularly when engine is cold, stays in 2nd gear until approx 2500 rpms.


The speed sensor on the transmission along with the throttle position sensor on the engine deliver the signals to the transmission computer dtermining shift timing, the throttle position sensor is probaly out of wack, there should be a stored trouble code however this transmission code can only be read by a transmission shop or the dealership, I guess you could change out the TPS sensor easy enough however this is merley an educated guess on my part to be sure have the computer checked for stored trouble codes.

I have the same problem with my 95 Toyota T100. My O/D off light started flashing when my speedometer cable broke this week-end. I assume the electronic transmission is using the speed data to manage the overdrive.
Have your speedometer problem fixed and your flashing light will turn off.
