Vehicle Speed Sensor VSS

The ECM uses the Vehicle Speed Sensor (VSS) signal to modify engine functions and initiate diagnostic routines. The VSS signal originates from a sensor measuring transmission/ transaxle output speed or wheel speed. Different types of sensors have been used depending on models and applications.

On some vehicles, the vehicle speed sensor signal is processed in the combination meter and then sent to the ECM.

On some anti-lock brake system (ABS) equipped vehicles, the ABS computer processes the wheel speed sensor signals and sends a speed sensor signal to the combination meter and then to the ECM. You will need to consult the EWD to confirm the type of system you are working on.
