1996 vw golf gl speed sensor


your model car has a electronic speedometer transducer,what it does measures rotation speed of the transaxle final drive and converts the information into an electronic signal which send to the speedometor module in the instrument panel, chilton is right my friend.yep ecu could be the problem because ecu uses the signal or input from the electronic speedometer transducer.

I need to know which o2 sensor is to the code u0D00.


It most likely is the one that controls the vacuum to the transmission. Ask anyone at Autozone where it is located and replace it.

Mercury cougar 1999 engine 2.5 having trouble...when driving it drives jerking back & forth & was given a code P0708


YOUR RANGE SENSOR IS BAD! IT WILL BE A BLACK BOX LOCATED ON TOP OF THE TRANSMISSION! THERE WILL BE A NUT ON TOP OF IT, AND A PLUG GOING INTO THE SIDE OF IT! IT TELLS THE COMPUTER WHAT GEAR YOUR IN, SO THE COMPUTER CAN COMPENSATE FOR THE SPEED AND TELL THE TRANSMISSION TO SHIFT!

2000 mercury cougar hesitating/jerking


I had the same kind of problem and I ended up solving it by actually checking for recalls for the 2000 Cougar and when you do, you'll see that there is a fuel pump recall. I dont' know if you've already done this but I figured i'd post this and try and help out!

Much luck

P0401 code Mercury Cougar 2000. DPFE sensor?


  1. Have tried cleaning out the throttle body? Carb cleaner and a rag should do the trick. Also, try bypassing the vacuum solenoid. First, remove the vacuum line from the solenoid, start the car, and then connect the vacuum line directly to the EGR valve. The car should run very rough and die. If not, then there is still something blocking the system (since you replaced everything, it might be down in the pipe (between valve and exhaust)). Also, ensure that the vacuum is strong enough by ensuring that the lines sticks to your fingers. Final possibility is that your new sensor is bad. You can do a voltage check (with igntion turned toon: 1 wire at 5 volts, 1 wire at 0 volts and 1 wire at about .5 tp 1.1 volts). The aftermarket sensors are not always of the best quality.

Vehicle speed sensor


You will have to get to it probably from under the car it will be located just to the right of the driver's side axle

Blower motor or resistor?


If it was the motor that went out then it would not blow at all. The resistor is the culprit that starts killing off speeds. It should be about $25 to $30 at an aftermarket store like autozone or advanced auto parts.
