The VSS or speed sense wire is used for navigation systems. The VSS wire sends a series of pulses (from 800 to just over 1,000 per mile) only when the vehicle is in motion. If the VSS wire is not hooked up, the navigation system will not realize that the car is moving at all, and will be unable to track position. If you need a wire color and location I can provide one for your vehicle. Hope this helps.

My traction control service light and ABS light comes on. What can I do to service it?


Hello Scurry.

When this happens the problem usually is one of the wheel speed sensors, connectors or the harness near the sensor.
ABS and traction control use the wheel speed sensors for information.
The system will need to be scanned by a tool capable of reading sensor output or the codes that will be stored due to the malfunction to pinpoint which one is the offender. Otherwise you will need to check each one on all 4 wheels.
You can check the resistance value at each sensor with a multimeter. Each one should read close to 1000 ohms. If they read OK then check the harness for open circuit, the wires often break near the plug that hooks to the sensor lead on the front sensors.
If you are handy with wiring repair you can cut out the bad section and resolder in a new wire.

If you need further assistance with this, leave me a comment.
Thank you for using FixYa.

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!

I need to hook up a centrodyne taxi meter to 2000 dodge caravan. I need to know how to hook it up. thanks


It's very easy on the pcm you will find a blue/orange wire. That's you hook up wire(vss). There are two set of wires off the meter bracket one comes with three wires and the other one with two. The one with 3 one goes to battery(red) ground(black) and top light(green or white). The other set of wires only the white one is connected to the vss.(vehicle speed sensor)

Just bought a 94 chevy blazer 4.3 vortex motor.digital speedo not working how do i hook it back up?


Your "speed sensor" is located on the transmissions tailshaft. It's possible the wire clip is detached, but usually the issue is a bad "speed sensor". There are a few different types of speed sensor for your vehicle year; depends on 2wd, 4wd, and vin#. It should be a easy fix, but speed sensors can cost a few bucks. I hope this helps you, and I wish you luck on your repair.

Looking for wiring diagram


there is o actual single wire carying the vehicle speed signal to the cluster. the speedometer receives a signal over what is called the can bus system. the wheel speed sensors send a signal to the antilock brake module which in turns sends a signal to the pcm. the pcm then sends a signal over the can bus system to various controllers including the cluster. you can not tap into this wires as it will effect the entire system
