ok

You have a bad VSS or vehicle speed sensor. It is mounted in the trans near where the axle shaft to right front wheel goes into the trans. I have attached a couple files but they are for the automatice but location is near exact same. I would suggest buying the vehicle speed sensor so you know what you are looking for. The job must be done from under the car, You unplug the sensor and then unscrew the sensor from the trans, Not hard but have to work under car as mentioned, The sensor does not cost much , I think in most areas under $40. Here are the files showing location, It is #20 in the one location picture

Oh thanks , pardon it’s a automatic not manual

then the information 100/% matches what you have, you need a speed sensor, BOTH codes indicate the sensor has failed and you will set these codes as well as lose speedo

How do I know, isn’t it an input and output

no the sensor in question IS the output sensor., The output sensor is same as the VSS and is mounted wher I sent shown right above the RF axle in the trans, That is the ONLY sensor that will cause the codes and.. the speedo to stop.Please rate my service provided using the star rating on your page,Thanks, Randall

Okay, one last question!
What is the input for , and should I replace that on while I have it up

Sorry for the delay. I am not getting notifications from JA when customer replies, The input? has nothting to do with this and is internal to the trans, Sure,m you could change it but lots of work to do so, The output VSS is the problem and is external on the trans.Please rate my service provided using the star rating on your page,Thanks, Randall
