where is the speed sensor on camry 2.2 auto
i have toyota camry 2.2 (5sfe)1998 model.The speedometer is not working n
it changes gears at 3000 rpm. it gives P0500 code(speed sensor signal)
is it inside the gearbox or outside,coz i have been trying looking for it but cant find it
when the car reach 3000 rpm that's when it will change to 2nd gear the shows engine check light and O/D flashing
As I recall..... the Black connector part sits vertically on top of the Tranny. You will have to do some careful digging under the hood to find it. Do a Google search of your Make/Model/Year and Vehicle Speed Sensor. There should be some pictures and Videos on the location.
Seth...what's new with the issue on this vehicle?
Are both the speedometer and odometer not workng? if they aren't, the usual suspect is the VSS(vehicle speed sensor). If this sensor is good, then I would look at the blue, 3 lead resonator soldered on the speedometer circuit board. You have to remove the instrument cluster(easy) to get at it. Then remove the speedometer assembly and identify the blue resonator. Unsolder the 3 leads and solder in the new resonator(available from DigiKey.com for 70 cents). Reassemble the instrument cluster and reinstall it. Good luck!!
OE.....does this resonator have a spec and part #?
An e-mail is on the way to Car Gurus.The part No. is DigiKey ZTT-4.00MG/X902-ND/82182. If you look on Youtube for a 1998 Camry speedometer/odometer malfunction, there are videos to help you locate the VSS, remove the instrument cluster and replace the resonator. Good luck.
One additional thought. My Camry is a stick shift, so it doesn't use the VSS output for transmission shifting. The automatic transmissions do! Without the VSS output, the car will shift irradically.
Many thanks for the info.
The resonator(3 lead blue) was purchased from DigiKey:part No. ZTT-4.00MG/X902-ND/82182. I cannot take credit for this fix as a fellow named James on a Car Guru's thread(1998 Camry speedometer/odometer malfunction)was the initial genius.. Another fellow on the thread identified the the DIgiKey part and I just followed instructions and it solved my problem. A plus in installing a new resonator is the fact that you a getting a new product, not a used resonator that may have its own age problems. Prolonged heat deteriorates the ceramic resonator(my Camry is a 1998 and sits in the Florida sun). Buying a used instrument cluster or speedometer is a risk plus it changes your odometer milage.
Ok...just to clarify. If one of these older Toyota's has a Speedo going nuts...AND....the Auto Tranny is shifting crazy.....and...the odometer is not working...the root cause of the issue is most likely the VSS. On the other hand...if just the Speedo Meter is nuts...and ODometer and Tranny work fine it's most likely this "resonator". Correct?
thanks for all your answers,but I realy cant find the vss coz i looked everywhere and I find it
Google your make/model/year and engine type and VSS. Videos. Get Back with results
If the odometer is working, I doubt that it is the resonator. Both the odometer and speedometer were not working on my car. The VSS was functional(tested at PepBoys). Replacing the resonator fixed both meters. The VSS is located on top of the tranny close to the block on the driver side. It has a black(?) connector on top and one 10 mm bolt holding the VSS. It can be accessed from the top, but not without angst. My vehicle is a 98 Camry CE std stick. Let me know how you make out.
OK...I think I got it. Thanks, Now...Seth...have you found the VSS on the Tranny?
