The vehicle speed sensor (VSS) measures transmission/transaxle output or wheel speed. This information is used to do things such as, show vehicle speed, adjust air/fuel ratios, adjust ignition timing, control transmission shift points and initiate diagnostic routines.

When a Vehicle Speed Sensor fails you can experience several things:

  • Delayed transmission shifting
  • Hard shifting
  • Erratic speedometer readings
  • Inability to engage cruise control
  • Check engine light
