Question about 2000 Nissan Sentra
Transmission hangs in 2nd gear after tranny heats up. Repair shop read code and said had bad VSS module. Replaced VSS. Still have same problem and same code.
if your car get a VSS code the Transmission control module.
Will command the Trans, in LIMP MODE.
Is mean you only will have 2 gear.
If you replaced the VSS sensor allready.
Maybe you have A electrical problem.
The First step is Check the condition of the VSS connector.
Remove the Connector and pull the wires a little each by each one.
To see if is broken inside of the Plastic cover.
IF you can
GIVE ME the Code number I will help you better.
Because is there more that One speed sensor on your trans..
Check the grounds on the Intake manifold, Black wire one of the wires is for the speed sensor.
The RED/YELLOW wire coming from the INSTRUMENT CLUSTER,
Is mean you need to check the Fuses that work with the instrument cluster. FUSE # 12 10amp, And # 30 10amp.
Located at fuse block left side of dash.
Is there a ground that work with the Cluster and Combination Meter. Behind left side of dash Black wire.
Check the Connection of the Cluster.
OK.. I hope this help on your problem.
