SOURCE: where is the output speed

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:

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:

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

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.

2010 Malibu error codes po700,po716,po717


DTC P0700: Transmission Control Module (TCM) Requested MIL Illumination

Which one of these transmissions does your Malibu have ?
Automatic Transmission - 4T45-E
Automatic Transmission - 6T40/6T45
Automatic Transmission - 6T70/6T75

Do you know how to find out look at the VIN # ?
DTC P0716: Input Speed Sensor Performance
DTC P0717: Input Speed Sensor Circuit Low Voltage
The automatic transmission input speed sensor (ISS) is a permanent magnet with a coil of wire wound around. The ISS mounts in the case cover facing the reluctor wheel of the input shaft. As the reluctor wheel is driven by the turbine shaft, an AC signal is induced in the input speed sensor. Higher vehicle speeds induce a higher frequency and voltage at the sensor. There is a fixed air gap between the sensor and the teeth on the sensor reluctor wheel. The ISS input is used by the transmission control module (TCM) in order to control line pressure, torque converter clutch (TCC) apply and release, and transmission shift patterns. This sensor is also used to calculate the appropriate gear ratios and TCC slippage. This diagnostic indicates stuck, erratic, or intermittent conditions in the system.
Diagnostic Aids
• Road test the vehicle while monitoring the Transmission ISS parameter on the scan tool. The Transmission ISS parameter should vary with engine speed changes and not abruptly drop out.
• Inspect for an open or shorted AT ISS wire.
• Inspect for a disconnected AT ISS connector.
• Inspect for a faulty AT ISS.

Where is the speed sensor on a 2007 civic hybrid


Are you looking for the wheel speed sensor or the vehicle speed sensor?
The wheel speed sensor is located on the steering knuckles just behind the rotors.
The vehicle speed sensor is located on top of the transmission housing under the air filter bock housing.

If you need any more info or details on these sensors, let me know.
Hope this helps you.

VSS vehicle speed sensor replacement


There are vehicle speed sensors on all four wheels and usually another on the transmission. Depends on why you are replacing and what system you are having trouble with. The ABS uses the four wheels to gauge speed for stopping and traction control purposes. The sensor on the transmission (output speed sensor) is the one that feeds data to the computer for the speedometer. Take off your tires and the speed sensors are easy to find behind the brake rotors. The trans mounted sensor will be easiest to find by having the new part in hand and finding the corresponding sensor to match.

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.

I have a 2001 aztek. ABS light comes on. But my biggest problem seems to be that my car jerks like it is the transmission slipping. My husband had it looked at and was told it is the speed control censor....


Get Another Car--LOL

Really --just throw that one away

Can you afford to do that?

When it was looked at ,why didn't you have it repaired?

The ABS Light is on -- so why wasn't that issue
diagnosed & repaired. That may be a Wheel Speed Sensor

Not the same thing as a transmission output speed sensor

I think vehicle technology is beyond your learning curve, at the
moment
Find a half decent repair shop

I have a 02 Accent with a p1529 code. NONE of my mechanics have any idea what this code is or my trans guys. This is my only code as I just replaced my output speed sensor and this one stupid code is...


The code is related to the right front wheel speed sensor . possibly a bad wheel speed sensor or broken wire or faulty connection ....you may look behind the fender shield to inspect for broken or damaged wire or connector .... a good starting point

Where do u locae a speed sensor on a 2006 chrysler 300?


A wheel speed sensor?

They are located at each individual wheel.

An output or input speed sensor?

They are located on the drivers side of the transmission. They are yellowish white in color and look identical to each other. You will need a 1 inch socket to remove and replace them.

The input speed sensor is towards the front of the transmission and the output speed sensor is located toward the rear of the transmission.
