Remove the VSS again and reach into the hole the VSS goes into with your finger. You want to use your finger to ensure that the plastic gear (inside the transaxle) is not damaged or missing teeth. Also check the plastic gear on the VSS. If either of these gears have damaged teeth, your VSS won't turn, hence no speedometer or odometer function.

yeah it can be replaced try a junkyard first.you might be able to get away cheap.i had the same problem in a 93 accord got mine from junkyard worked great after that

If all the connection and power supplies to instrument cluster are ok,I suspect that the speedometer or instrument cluster is faulty but before you replace it, make sure the gear inside the transmission that drives the VSS is in good.

This is from a 94 Accord; should be the same. Not a great pic., but I think you can figure it out from this:

Got the P0500 CEL code. Already replaced VSS, single-rev sensor and even tried replacing cluster unit. All with no solution. Symptom: Speedometer stays at 0 at first. Engine does not shift to 3rd gear


NO NO NO the VSS sensor has three wires 5 volt reference signal return and ground easy test is to check v-ref and ground. signal return must be tested by using ohm meter checking from computer plug to sensor one of the wires has open circuit this sensor is used to control transmission shifting also can you judge your speed better than the cops radar.

Need help locating vss on trans for a 2000 F350 4X4 7.3 motor


1. Your ABS/ VSS can be removed and cleaned with just a clean rag, no need for wd-40 or any other solvent, also carefully clean out the hole on top of the differential, lift the vehicle (place in neutral) and check the sprocket wheel inside the pumpkin for possible missing teeth or to see if it is loose.

2. The VSS (part # F85F-9E731-AA) can also be tested with an ohms meter, it should measure ~1.9 K-ohm or higher (lower than 1.9 requires replacement).

3. The VSS is a hall-effect sensor, connect a volt meter to the sensor connector and wave a piece of metal (pair of pliers or flat metal) about a half inch away from the sensor, and you will consistently see a variation in voltage, if no movement on the volt meter is observed, replace the sensor.

4. You also have the two front wheel ABS sensors, try cleaning them first, and carefully reinstalling them.

5. When the VSS sensor is malfunctioning, the PCM may try to get input from the TSS (turbine speed sensor, top of the transmission), and as it turns out, the same return wire is used by the OSS (output speed sensor, tail end of transmission), check these two sensors also, clean them and test them (1.10 K-ohm or higher). These are also Hall Effect sensors, so check for voltage as described in paragraph 3 above.

6. Pay attention to see if your ABS light blinks when you start the vehicle, just before it stays solid. If this is happening, count the number of blinks, as this is actually a code and the blinking means the vehicle is trying to communicate with you.

7. Last, if nothing above corrected the problem, I would start tracing RFI (radio frequency interference), one sure area is usually your fuel pump (wires running along side VSS wiring. ABS/VSS wiring is routed directly to the ABS module.

I hope this information works for you.


There are two "speed sensors" though that can be confused at the parts store. They don't look the same but they are listed almost the same. The one on the rear diff is listed as the "ABS speed sensor"....the one on the tranny is listed as the "Speed sensor" The rear one is the cheapest and easiest to replace...about $12.

Where is the output speed sensor on my 2000 Volvo S70 ? It seems to have brake and trans problems. The front brake would act like it was trying to apply the brake while driving down the road. The trans was...


Hi.

The problem is either vehicle speed sensor or wiring harness going to sensor. In some case the ECM is defective.

Ensure that you have already replaced the VSS with good ones.

If you have not replaced them yet, then the sensor can be tested reading the waveform. This is done connecting both VSS input and output wires to a machine. The one below is a good VSS wave at 37 mph:

ginko_125.gif


If the waveform is incorrect, the sensors must be replaced, as the ECM returns P0722 when VSS output is incorrect, or when there is no output.

A second test can be done reading the sensor impedance and voltage. Connect a multi-meter to the sensor. Set first on Ohms reading (impedance). A good sensor will read 560-680 Ohms at 20C (68F).
Set multimeter on Volts. Touch rapidly the sensor with a magnet and pull magnet away. The sensor will emit a weak voltage pulse. If that does not happen, then the sensor is broken. Ensure that multimeter is on high volt scale.Voltage will be quite low:

ginko_124.gif
The VSS are located on the wheel shaft. Here a picture:

ginko_123.gif

The VSS is connected to the ECM.

If you have already replaced the sensors you need to check the wiring harness to the ECM.

ginko_122.gif
The wiring harness is tested checking that each wire going to the ECM has continuity. This is done reading impedance between each connector in the sensor , and the respective connector in the ECM. Impedance must be zero or a very low value. If it reads infinity, then the wire is broken.
A second test is done reading impedance between the two different wires at ECM connector. Impedance must be the same as at VSS contacts on sensor. If impedance is zero, then there is a short. Ensure that you choose a proper Ohms scale while doing the test.

If you have already replaced the VSS, repair or replace the wiring harness. The ECM failure returning this code is very uncommon. At most you may have a defective ECM connector.

Regards.

94 VW golf 1.8 auto speedo not working / -replaced speed sensor (under battery) -replaced cluster


Start by checking the wiring to the VSS (sensor) . Plug has 3 wires. One of the outside wires should have 12 volts when ignition on. Other outside wire should have an earth of no more than 5 ohms impedance. Centre wire should give an earth pulse when gearbox is turning. If live and earth are good, but no pulse, then sensor or its drive gear is broken. Problem is usually sensor suffering ppor earth connection. Ok to cut earth wire before sensor and atach to sutable earth point.

Abs light on speedometer ouit and wont shift


Hi, I recommend you test or just replace your speed sensor. Instructions for testing are pasted below. The sensor is mounted on the side of the transmission with a single bolt and has a connector with 2 wires on it. It looks like the picture below, and costs about $35. When reinstalling, be sure to lubricate the o-ring with oil and twist while pushing in. Please let me know if you have questions and thanks for using FixYa.

When driving the car the speedomator goes to 0 and then the tranmission starts slipping


There's a possible worn out clutch inside of the auto transmission. The speedometer going to zero could be the transmission not sensing speed, and then disengaging the transmission to keep the car from stalling at a stop sign, maybe.

Try looking at the VSS (vehicle speed sensor) circuit on the transmission.

Here are some tests that can be performed on the VSS:

99 Ford Escort ZX2 Speedometer/Odometer doesn't work


I'm sorry, I have to ask, this is an automatic right? That out of the way, Does the trans shift different when you drove it with the Vss unplugged when you had the ohm meter on it? 8.5 volts? Something sounds wrong here. I'll have to look up the wiring diagram before I can say thats a bad reading but it should be battery voltage (14 volts running) or 5 volts?
