Im gonna replace my VSS, because my speedometer doesnt work anymore, i have a 97 FOrd taurus... and bsaically the speedo doesnt read anymore, it used to work on and off and finally it just doesnt anymore..
My question is I thought if it was my vss that my cruise control wouldnt work anymore as well

but in any case does anyone have any step by step methods of removing my vss and replacing it? Thanks!

Does your radio work?

The speedo is on the same fuse as the radio.

If your cruise still works its not your VSS, if it does not work, it could be your VSS.

If it needs to be replaces, its cheap and easy...

Its $28 from any auto parts store other than the dealer.

Remove the one 10mm bolt then use water pump pliers to twist it out. (wiggle back and forth, it will come out).

The VSS is located on the top of the tranny on the passenger side by the firewall. It is right where the pass. axle goes into the transmission.
