    Somewhat helpful, but I still had to hunt for it. Ended up removing the air cleaner intake, left front wheel, & shroud. Part cost < $20 and took about an hour of my labor. Saved about $100 vs taking to a shop. Thanks.

Were is speed censour located


the output speed sensor is located on the transmission. while standing in front of the vehicle and looking down at the transmission you will see two rubber hoses. under those hoses you will see the input speed sensor. if you look to the right of that sensor, and you may have to look from underneath the vehicle you will see another sensor that is identical to the input speed sensor. That is the output speed sensor. The output speed sensor is the one that shows how fast you are moving on the speedometer.

Inoperative speed sensor on a 1996 silverado K2500


There are two speed sensors, one is called an input shaft speed sensor and the other an output speed sensor. both control transmission but the out put also controls speedometer,

To replace any of these is not hard, they are bolted on the outside of transmission, you will remove the bolt holding them in and then they slide out, the input shaft speed sensor is located on the front left side of the transmission. the output speed sensor is located on the left side of the transfer case. good day

Where is my speed sensor located?


Hi.

The vehicle speed sensor or VSS is located on top of the transmission, on the output shaft. This sensor provides input to the speedometer on instrument cluster. There are also 4 wheel speed sensors (one on each wheel). Their primary function is to detect wheel speed to control ABS.

Below a picture of the VSS sensor:

Po731 and po700 the car don't change speed


replace the output speed sensor on you 4 speed trans, 3.3 engines only have 4 speed transmissions. The output sensor is located next to the transfer gear. Or if you are looking the two sensors, it would be the one on the right.

P700 = PCM has a transmission code in the EATX controller, and P0731= Gear ratio error in 1st. Replace the output speed sensor and clear the codes.

1997 expedition PO503 code, 4WD, 4.6 motor, changed coil pack and spark plug


The code is specific to the engine speed sensor located on the side of the transmission near the output shaft. This device measures the output shaft rotation speed and allows the Electronic Control Unit (ECU - power control module) to program gear shifts as well as when to engage anti lock braking or traction control (by monitoring the output shaft speed sensor and comparing this with inputs from the wheel hub sensors). Locate the speed sensor connection and make sure the all the electrical contacts are free of dirt and corrosion. Remove the speed sensor and make sure that it looks physically OK and is clean, especially its tip. Check that all the wires are intact and that there is electrical continuity back to the ECU. The error code is consistent with an intermittent connection but if you suspect that the sensor itself is at fault it is not a very expensive item to replace.

The output speed sensor is located on top of the transmission output shaft, this will send speed value to the transmission control module (TCM).
The vehicle speed sensor is installed on the differential of the transmission, and sends speed value to speed gauge on instrument cluster.

Check also IAC valve and look for vacuum leaks using an hand tool gauge(Vacuum Gauge and Fuel Pump Pressure).

Location of speed sensor a for 99 dodge intrepid


The "Vehicle Speed Sensor" signal is generated by the transmisson output speed sensor. That is the one located at the rear of the case. It is externally mounted. That supplies "vehicle speed" info to the other On-Board Computers. The input turbine speed sensor is located just behind the bell housing area of the case. I believe the trans controller is the only module that needs that info. The Crank Position Sensor give engine RPM info and it is located on the bell housing near the engine block. I hope this helps.

not an oxygen sensor



vehicle speed sensor or oss is most likely cause.


Output Shaft Speed Sensor (OSS) 7H103: The output shaft speed (OSS) sensor is a magnetic pickup, located at the output shaft ring gear that sends a signal to the powertrain control module to indicate transmission output shaft speed. The powertrain control module uses this signal for torque converter clutch control, shift scheduling, used in determining EPC pressure. Symptoms: No converter engagements, harsh shifts, abnormal shift schedules. DTC: P0720, P0721 std~us~en~file=d14110a.gif~gen~ref.gif


Vehicle Speed Sensor (VSS) 9E731: The vehicle speed sensor is a magnetic pickup that sends a signal to the powertrain control module. This VSS signal tells the PCM vehicle speed. The PCM uses this signal to modify upshift schedules. Symptoms: Shift engagement/disengagement (hunting) on grades. DTC: P0500, P0503, P1500, P1501, P1503
