How can you isolate the vss vehicle speed sensor from the sensor buffer and where are they located on a 1992 camaro rs 305 with automatic transmission when your speedometer quits working?

If your speedometer is not working, or working intermittently and you want to isolate whether it's a faulty VSS or buffer box, try this:

BEAR IN MIND THAT THIS IS ONLY FOR TBI EQUIPPED CAMAROS.

Locate the buffer box. It is under the dash on the passenger side. You'll have to remove the lower cover to access it. The buffer itself is a printed circuit housed inside of a plastic case. On my Camaro, the plastic case is white. I've heard of others being yellow. There are two connectors on the buffer. Disconnect the small one (yellow and purple wires) get a voltmeter, set it to read DC voltage, connect to the plug (polarity doesn't matter). Take someone with you and go for a little drive. Have your ride around buddy monitor the voltmeter. If the VSS is sending out a signal, the voltmeter will register a small amount of voltage. It varies slightly depending on speed. If the voltmeter is not detecting any voltage, chances are that you have a faulty VSS.

The VSS sensor is in the trans on a 92 camaro. If you have a tpi motor there is no buffer. The signal is sent directly to the ecm. From there it is sent to the speedometer and cruise control unit. What exactly are you tring to accomplish?
