Speed Sensor Wiring
Posted 08 February 2004 - 06:56 AM
I have an '83 GL wagon, the vehicle speed sensor is unpluged and i havent been able to find where it plugs in, or which wires coming out of the ECU plug into it. Does anyone have a wiring diagram for this?

The VSS is generated in the speedometer head unit.
Exits as a yellow with red tracer wire from terminal 45 on the speed-0 conntector.
It is used for the CC and the TC but does not appear to be an ECM input.
Could it be a late build date 83, making it an 84?
Hope someone has a better answer.

so if speedo isnt reading, check the cable. my 83 wagonhad cruise
on jims sedan, he accidentally pulled away the speedo cable while changing heater hose, thus resulting in no speedo, and a VSS code on the ecu

The speedo is working. i am getting code 22, when i had the dash apart to fix some other stuff, i noticed that the 2 wires coming off the back of the speedo werent pluged into anything.

Checked for code in BAT auto
22 --- Ignition pulse system (1983 only)/Vehicle speed sensor or circuit or VLC solenoid valve or circuit. (1984 to 1988 carbureted)
checked mine from the board's repair manual
22 --- Ignition Pulse System
22--- Vehicle Speed Sensor (VSS) or Circuit
Is it an automatic?
Wasn't the change to hyd lifters made between 83 and 84?
On the automatic cars??
What colors are these wires ?
If nobody else comes to the rescue, I'll dig out my 84 FSM and see what it says.

its a manual, 2wd 5spd
I dont know about the lifters
i think the wires were black with a red strip and yellow, i'll check this tomorrow.
