Where is the input speed sensor located

Location of iss and oss sensors

My car has 187000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Experienced mechanics share their insights in answering this question :
The location of the input/output speed sensor and other related sensors is towards the top of the transmission. Look passed the bell housing, about a third and two thirds of the way down (towards the back of the vehicle). You should feel them on the drivers side of the vehicle. It will be a small plug in type connector. There are several plugs in the area, for exact location, you will want a diagram. Official diagrams are on the internet from Ford.

The output speed sensor is also known as the vehicle speed sensor in a vehicle. It transmits a signal to the transmission control unit, informing it of the vehicle`s speed. Failure of the speed sensor is a common reason for taking the car to the mechanic.
Hello, the speed sensor for the speedometer is located on the transmission at the rear extension housing. The housing is the part that the driveshaft slip yoke (front part of driveshaft) would be position at.
Located on the top of the high-pressure turbocharger, on the compressor side of the housing. This sensor monitors the rotational speed of the high-pressure turbocharger to protect against over-speed conditions. This sensor is located on the compressor side near the outlet of the low-pressure turbocharger.
Connect the VSS to a power drill so you can simulate the rotation of the vehicle`s transmission and read the multimeter to see if the voltage increases as the speed increases to check if the sensor is working properly.
A wheel speed sensor (WSS) or vehicle speed sensor (VSS) is a type of tachometer.
On a manual transmission, the speed sensor captures the vehicle speed at the gearbox and provides this information to the speedometer.
The Input Shaft Speed Sensor measures the rotational speed of the Input Shaft, taken from the upper countershaft drive gear. The Main Shaft Speed Sensor measures the rotational speed of the transmission gearing exiting the main case, taken from the auxiliary upper countershaft gear.
Note: The transmission speed sensor is located in the rear of a longitudinal mount transmission. For transaxles, the speed sensor is located on the long side of the output shaft. This would be the end of the transaxle that faces the front of the engine.
As the name indicates, input shaft speed (ISS) sensor is used for monitoring the speed of the input shafts of the transmission, whereas the output shaft speed (OSS) sensor is used to monitor the speed of the transmissions` output shafts.

the most relevant questions and answers related to your specific issue

Intermittent issue where after a stop car is stuck in first, speedometer at zero. Had output speed sensor changed, no change.
ANSWER : Hello there, a few possible faults could cause the vehicle to become stuck in first. The most common would be low fluid level, shift solenoid, transmission range sensor, or a transmission mechanical fault. I’d suggest getting this looked at by a qualified technician, such as one from YourMechanic, who will be able to diagnose your shifting issue and perform any repairs required.

input speed shaft sensor location?
ANSWER : Hey there. The turbine speed sensor is located on the drivers side of the transmission just above the shift lever and sensor. The turbine sensor is mounted in the side of the transmission.

how to set up the engine speed sensor on a puma 2.4 tdi motor
ANSWER : Hello. It does not appear that a 2.4 Land Rover engine requires a reset procedure for the crank position sensor. Most crank position sensors are hall effect or magnetic type, and operate by reading a signal from the reluctor wheel that is close in proximity. If the engine is not firing after a new bracket has been attached, it may be possible that the new bracket is not properly positioning the crank sensor and throwing off the reading. I would double check to make sure that the new bracket positions the crank sensor in the same position as the old one. If the bracket is okay, it may be possible that there is a wiring issue or the sensor is faulty.

Getting the code P0500. Changed both NC & NT sensors. Can’t pull out the vehicle speed sensor (VSS).
ANSWER : Hi there. The code P0500 is in reference with the vehicle speed sensor. The possible causes that contribute for this code to appear are:

The vehicle speed sensor (VSS) is not reading properly
There is a broken or frayed wire going to the vehicle speed sensor
The vehicle’s ECM (computer) is not correctly configured for the actual tire size on the vehicle

If you need to replace the VSS, then check to see if there is any mounting bolt and remove the bolt before taking off the sensor. The sensor will have some pressure on it but not a hole lot. You may have to put a pry bar on the sensor and pop it out. Make sure that you have a drip pan under the sensor as it will drain out some fluid. Top off the transmission fluid when you have the new sensor installed. If you need further assistance with the P0500 code, then seek out a professional, such as one from Your Mechanic, to help you.

input speed sensor not shifting out of 2nd gear
ANSWER : Hi there:

The problem with today’s modern transmissions is that there are several individual mechanical and electrical components that control the operation. As such, it’s very difficult to tell you whether or not replacing the input speed sensor was the solution to your problem. Most of the time, a sensor replacement is followed up by resetting error codes in the ECU. If that step is not completed, the malfunction can occur again.

A good solution is to contact a local ASE certified mechanic who can test drive your car, then properly diagnose the issue with your gears with the correct scanner and experience with your 2007 Chrysler.

Where is located input speed sensor
ANSWER : Hi there:

The transmission speed sensor is connected to the transmission on most Dodge cars, including the 2007 Dodge Nitro. This video is a good one to show you how to replace the input speed sensor. If you review this and determine it’s too difficult to complete on your own, please contact one of our local mechanics to complete a speed sensor replacement for you.

Check engine light – O2 sensor circuit + speed sensor circuit…
ANSWER : Hi there. O2 sensor low voltage can be caused my a number of things. Mass air flow sensor was only one of them. It can be a bad O2 sensor, coolant temperature sensor, or wiring issue.

What should be done is a proper diagnosis for the Check Engine Light. Using a complete scanner rather than just a code reader gives a technician the opportunity to not only read trouble codes, but to read voltages for individual sensors. While a code reader tells you the relevant system that set the Check Engine Light on, but with a number of possible causes, the full scan tool allows checking of each individual cause. Having a proper diagnosis will help you have this repaired correctly without replacing parts that are not faulty.

My code reader says I have a bad mass air flow sensor ans crank shat sensor test drive ran better shut off & engine Lt. Same code
ANSWER : Hi there. The problem you are describing, sounds like you may have a poor connection in the connector at the mass airflow sensor. Although, sometimes aftermarket parts do not perform as well as factory (OEM) parts. Check for corrosion and/or wide spacing in the terminal ends. Compare the terminal ends in the connector using a flashlight to see better. The terminals can be tightened. If you are not comfortable with doing that, a replacement pigtail (connector) is available. You vehicle may require further diagnosis performed with a scanner that provides parameters that can be viewed as the fault occurs. If that is the case, I recommend having your vehicle’s electrical circuits inspected in order to pinpoint the underlying fault.
