          This VSS, vehicle speed sensor fixed several problems,#1 fluctuating speedometer at various speeds, #2 ABS light coming on, #3 Brake ABS motor pulsating while coming to a stop, vibration & sound at brake pedal, #4 rolling thru a stop sign or light cause ABS system was activating wrong, #5 DTC wheel sensor codes on the scan tool are no more! Don't hesitate, get this VSS if having any of these problems. Screws right into the 4x4 transfer case, drivers side. Got my new s-10 truck back!

                A:

                Hi Flojoe, happy to help you! The speed sensor should be located on the tail-shaft housing of the transmission. For help with your project, I recommend purchasing a Haynes or Chilton repair manual specifically for your vehicle. This should be able to assist you further into detail on how to repair or replace specific parts.

                The vehicle sped sensor should be located on the tailshaft of the Transmission, drivers side. You would require a 1inch socket to remove the sensor.

                A:

                There are two types of vehicle speed sensors (VSS) on the 1999 Chevy Blazer. One is a single variable speed sensor that sends a signal to the digital ratio adapter control and cruise control. The variable speed sensor is responsible for the speedometer reading in the Blazer. The other type of speed sensor on the Blazer is the antilock brake system (ABS) wheel speed sensors. These sensors read the individual wheel speeds to communicate with the ABS system. Four-wheel, disc-brake model Blazers have four sensors. Rear-drum-brake models have only two.

                A:

                The most noticeable sign of a bad speed sensor is a speedometer or odometer that stops working. Also, you may not be able to set your vehicle to cruise control. Hesitation, roughness or sporadic jumps in your vehicle's transmission when you try to shift gears indicates your speed sensor may be the problem. Your vehicle may rumble or idle irregularly when you start it, or it may burn more fuel than normal. Also, your vehicle may lose power suddenly due to wrong signals sent from the speed sensor to the fuel system.

                It might be the problem. However, I would suggest taking your vehicle to a certified mechanic for a proper diagnosis before buying and having parts installed that may not (solve/be) the problem.

                A:

                The variable speed sensor should be located on the upper left (driver's side) tail shaft of the transmission of the two-wheel drive model or on the upper left (driver's side) tail shaft of the transfer case attached to the rear of the transmission on the four-wheel drive model.

              I have a 1995 Blazer that will not go much over 30mph. Could it be the speed sensor on the transmission causing this? The tranny doesn't slip.
