Best Answer

1991 to 1995 Explorers have a conventional speedometer cable

with a drive gear that is driven by the transmission on 2 wheel

drive or the transfer case on 4 wheel drive.

1996 and newer have an electronic speedometer with a vehicle speed

sensor that connects to the transmission or transfer case.

2000 and newer the VSS is combined with the rear axle sensor

located on top of the differential.
