Customer Question

I have speed sensor problem with my 1999 Dodge Ram 1500. When I remove the electrical harness from one of the sensors it has three (3) pins. The ones I keep getting have (2) pins in the sensor. And I understand there is an input and output sensor.   What is the correct configuration I need for the sensor and are the input and output the same part?

Hi,

 

On the 99, there is just the output speed sensor mounted on the transmission. It is mounted the rear of the transmission on the tailshaft housing:

should be a 2 pin connector:

I understand. Why does the harness have three female receptors?

Hi,

 

Cany get my the VIN number on your Ram, also look on the dirver's door or door sill for a manufacturer's label- it will have production date, month/year. I will need that as well. Yours might be a between year

Hi,

 

Can you look on the harness with the 3 pin connector and tell me the color wires?

Customer: replied 8 years ago.
Yes, give me a few minutes and I will reply. They were covered by the sheathing or conduit for the wires. I pulled it back and there are only two wires. They are green and black. I guess it doesn't matter that the harness has three pin receptacles. One must be blank. Guess it shows how much I know. thanks.
