Mechanic's Assistant: Which particular sensor are you asking about? And have any trouble codes been triggered?

Yes, p0500, and the speedometer needle is not working

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Quest yourself? What have you tried so far?

ok

The vehicle speed comes through the ABS control unit... so this changes the game a little. I'm going to look up the P0500

the revolution sensor is the vss, is the abs light on also?

Customer reply replied 4 months ago
abs actuator has issue, and making motor sound all the time, even when the car is off and locked.
the abs light, the slip and the emergency brake lights are on all the time.
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
i just took the abs motor fuse out, so abs remains off all the time. the speedometer was working for quite a while after that but suddenly stops working and got the above error, for VSS sensor. thanks.
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
I am satisfied with your conclusion. its all make sense now.
the ABS module is in a hard to reach location. is there is a way to get it from removing the driver side wheel and plastic cover, to get there from behind. thanks.

I have the used module, is there special reason to used new one? is there programming involved with the new one? thanks.
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
sorry, my mistake, i was talking about the passenger side wheel and taking the cover off. correction

I know which side you were talking about. the reason for using a new one is that through the years I have found its a 50/50 shot of the used one working

Customer reply replied 4 months ago
understand, thanks.

you will need to access it through the top , meaning the cowl and wiper linkages will need removed

Customer reply replied 4 months ago
the diagrams are very helpful. i did the same procedure, when replacing the spark plugs. this will take 4 to 6 hours.
thanks. one last question, is there a way to not to replace the ABS module and still make the speedometer working, like resting something. as since the speedometer was working for quite a while after the ABS module broke. I am just wondering, if it is possible. thanks.
