Ok the output speed sensor and the vehicle speed sensor are not the same sensor.The output speed sensor will be on the tailshaft housing of the transmission or to the rear of the transmission case if it is a 45rfe(5 speed auto).The vehicle speed sensor is in the top of rear differential housing.Be sure and douse the sensor with wd40 before you try to remove.Dry oring will cause sensor to stick and break and that can be a headache.Good Luck!

Trans output sensor?? speed sensor maybe? Did the speedometer start working? This is where you have to start. Important feature for shifting. This is electrical and checking wires for continuity. If it always goes in gear and drives, I would look hard at replacing the solenoid package. It's on the front side of the transmission. Costs around $300. You have to remove the cooler lines, a sensor, and 3 bolts to remove it. Clean it, around/behind it first. You absolutely do NOT want any dirt getting in the holes on the transmission.

Vehicle speed sensor, wheel speed sensor, your VSS operates you MPH and tells the trans how fast you are going and when to shift, it is telling the trans that your not moving so why would it shift? Next your ABS wheel speed sensor tell the car what wheel is moving at what speed to activate traction control and abs systems both are very sensitive and easy to break

Drops out of OD.


Fluid Change has nothing at all to do with a fix
Nothing at all & on a worn trans can cause slipping
In your case I assume a shop gave it a try
The hard shifts tell you the valve body needs cleaning
I would first look at all body data related to the trans,whatever
your truck has TCM Module whatever
I would check all bulletins at a repair shop in their data base
I would have a mechanic ride with you to look at the trans
with the scan tool on it & watch the speed sensor & any
external sensors you may have for correct data
No also check the brake switch
Does it go into Lock-up in most gears (brake sw )

The speed sensor that is under the trans. mount on the driver side sends the shift points to the computer telling it at what point to shift. The sensor that actually controls your speedometer is in the back near the firewall. It is tall and should have a silver heat shield over it. However, the problem that you have described sounds more like an electrical short or a wire grounding out somewhere. I would check for wires getting pinched under the steering column in the dash since things quit working when you are turning. Also check the wiring behind the instrument cluster. Elecrical problems can sometimes be complex and hard to find but with some due diligence they can be solved. Hope this helps.

Nissan Maxima speedometer reads 20 mph but actual speed is 40-50 mph, is my transmission going bad?


NO, IT'S NOT THE TRANSMISSION! SOUNDS LIKE A SPEEDOMETER PROBLEM! THAT WOULD BE ONE OF THREE THINGS! EITHER THE SPEEDOMETER, THE CABLE, OR THE SPEED SENSOR! THE SPEED SENSOR WILL USUALLY GIVE YOU A P0500 CODE ON AN OBD-II CODE READER! THE SPEED SENSOR IS ELECTRONIC SPEED CONTROL LOCATED ON THE TRANSMISSION! SOME HAVE A SPEEDOMETER CABLE HOOKED TO THEM, AND SOME JUST HAVE A 2 WIRE PLUG THAT HOOKS TO IT!

Odometer and speedometer don't work sometimes


speed sensor runs all three gages. Sounds like trans might have lose or missing bolts. Get it checked out.

Your speed sensor in your trans. needs to be checked out sounds like its not working or not getting a good signal until its generating enough power and speed to start until it reaches 30 MPH. Check that out sometimes it could just be some dirt on it. It all makes sense the ABS light is on because its not reading the speed of the tires, and the AOD light is on because It has no idea when to shift into overdrive without knowing how fast its going. I sure Hope that Helps You Out, And Thanks, Bear001
