Main Speed Sensor No Speed Sensor

The main speed sensor is located in the transmission housing. A rotor with built-in magnet is mounted on the drive pinion shaft or output shaft. Every time the shaft makes one complete revolution, the magnet activates the reed switch, causing it to generate a signal. This signal is sent to the ECU, which uses it in controlling the shift point and the operation of the lock-up clutch. This sensor outputs one pulse for every one revolution of the output shaft.

Beginning with the 1993 Corolla A245E, the No. 2 speed sensor has been discontinued and only the No. 1 speed sensor is monitored for shift timing.
