Hi and Welcome to Just Answer! My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will do my best to help.
Vehicle speed sensor is bolted to rear differential
on rear axle hausing
that's speed sensor for abs brakes. i told there is anoher one on tansmission or transfercase
wire colors are:- Red with pink stripe
and light green with black stripe
ABS sensor is used as speed sensor
what is the problem you have
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.
you will have to check wiring between sensor and PSOM module- (programable speedometer odometer module
you may have broke or corroded wire
look for wire colors I gave you and check those wires first around the area where work was done.
do you know the code number?
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..
you have got this problem after work was done correct?
yes, still getting code and truck still driving the same
verify wire colors, VSS- vehicle speed sensor is located on rear axle housing.
check as much as you can, grab and pull hard on the wires if it is broken it will move
if you do not find the problem around rear axle, let me know.
will send you wiring diagram
will do. Thanks again. You've been the most helpful, and even though this over the computer..more helpful than local ford dealership :)
