    My transmission will slip and the car will buck if you try to depress the gas pedal too far. Engine light comes on and error caode says it's the speed sensor.

    My speedometer on my Jeep Liberty 2002 went crazy last night. It would work for five minutes and then look like my wheels were spinning on ice.

    I have the same problem with my jeep and no one seems to even know where the speed sensor is located, not even the people at auto zone, they looked it up and couldn't even find a diagram. I don't want to take it in seeings how its such a small part and looks very easy to replace

Jeep Liberty 2002 woahs !
by porth21 - 2/1/09 7:35 AM In reply to: Jeep Liberty 2002 speedometer not working by Dannywon
I have a 2002 Jeep Liberty Limited with the same problem. The main problem I have found to be the routing of the speed sensor wires located on the rear difrential. They are 2 blue wires on my jeep and probably the same on yours. The problem is that they rub on the E-brake cable and once the wire is exposed they short and the speedometer and any other options running off they speed sensor quit working and that includes the tranny shift points and can cause the torque converter to not unlock and cause stalls. I am having the same problem for the third time and chrysler and jeep are both aware of the problem and unwilling to repair the problem or post a recall.

My spedometer stopped working also and the check engine light is on...Yes, it's the speed sensor...The speed sensor on a Jeep Liberty is located on the rear axel which is why it dies, because of where it's placed everytime you go over a bump, pot hole etc the sensor hits against each other...This should really be a recall on Jeeps end, for placement! Good luck to all of you with this problem! Before finding out what the probelm was (by a neighbor/mechanic) I brought the car to Chrysler and after sucking thousands from me...and not fixing the error, I fixed it in front of my house for the mer cost of the peice and a six pack for my neighbor!

Speed sensors are generally in one of two places, either on the back of the transmission, usually on the top side, or in the actual rear end. If the vehicle is a 4x4, it will be on the transfer case, generally on the back side near the top.

It's the speed sensor. This has happened on my '03 twice. It's one of 3 sensors located on top of the differential.

Speedometer doesn't work on 2002 jeep liberty


If the speedometer does not work but the odometer does, the problem is in the speedo cluster. If neither work, it may be the speed sensor on the side of the transmission.

2002 Jeep Liberty Renegade started car this morning very cold cold Car started rough now the engine is making a clicking noise


have you checked the oil it may be low on oil or you may have a bad cps(cam posistion sensor) so it is not exactly firing correctly you can go to auto zone and they will check the codes for free even if you dont see the check engine light on there will always be some type of codes stored. even codes that say no codes found. this will atleast give you a starting point.

  1. Connect diagnostic read-out tool to SMEC connector, then disconnect the speed sensor connector and ensure there are no pushed out or damaged terminals. Repair damaged terminals, then proceed to Test 38.
  2. If there are no damaged terminals, set diagnostic read-out tool to ``Read Sensor Values,'' and select ``Vehicle Speed.'' Connect a jumper wire at between black/light blue and white/orange wires of speed sensor connector. While reading diagnostic read-out tool, make and break jumper wire. If display reads any speed above 0 mph, replace speed sensor, then proceed to Test 38.
  3. If display reads 0 mph, turn ignition switch Off and disconnect 60-way connector from SMEC. Ensure there are no pushed out or damaged terminals. Repair damaged terminals, then proceed to Test 38. If there are no damaged terminals, proceed to step 4.
  4. With sensor disconnected, connect ohmmeter between 60-way connector terminal No. 67 and ground. If ohmmeter shows continuity, proceed to step 6. If ohmmeter does not show continuity, move meter lead from ground to white/orange wire of speed sensor connector.
  5. If ohmmeter indicates continuity, proceed to step 7. If ohmmeter does not indicate continuity, repair white/orange wire of 60-way connector for open circuit, then proceed to Test 38.
  6. Disconnect bulk head connector to instrument panel. If ohmmeter still indicates continuity, repair white/orange wire for a short to ground in harness, then proceed to Test 38. If ohmmeter does not indicate continuity, repair white/orange wire for a short to ground in instrument cluster area.
  7. Disconnect ohmmeter leads and connect ohmmeter between 60-way connector terminal No. 4 and sensor connector black/light blue wire. If ohmmeter does not indicate continuity, proceed to step 8. If ohmmeter indicates continuity, replace SMEC, then proceed to Test 38.
  8. If ohmmeter did not indicate continuity, repair black/light blue wire of speed sensor harness for an open circuit, then proceed to Test 38.

My guess is that the speed sensor has gone out or the wires that go to it have been knocked off somehow.
