i replaced the one on rear diff and i'm still gettinga code saying "speed sensor mafunction. Truck will stall out in reverse and only stay in first gear, won't up shift.

Pavlin Koev :

you will have to check wiring between sensor and PSOM module- (programable speedometer odometer module

Pavlin Koev :

you may have broke or corroded wire

Pavlin Koev :

look for wire colors I gave you and check those wires first around the area where work was done.

Pavlin Koev :

do you know the code number?

Customer:

Code is P0500. Iwill spend sometime crawling around on ground tracing those wires then. thnak you much....so for sure there is no sensor on transmission..

Pavlin Koev :

you have got this problem after work was done correct?

Customer:

yes, still getting code and truck still driving the same

Pavlin Koev :

verify wire colors, VSS- vehicle speed sensor is located on rear axle housing.

Pavlin Koev :

check as much as you can, grab and pull hard on the wires if it is broken it will move

Pavlin Koev :

if you do not find the problem around rear axle, let me know.

Pavlin Koev :

will send you wiring diagram

Customer:

will do. Thanks again. You've been the most helpful, and even though this over the computer..more helpful than local ford dealership :)
