Where is the vehicle speed sensor on a 2001 vw beetle located?
On top of the transmission, inside a silver bag <heat protection".
Get the air filter assembly out of the way and you will see it.
There are two types of speed sensors, ABS speed sensors (braking system) and vehicle speed sensors (transmission). The ABS speed sensor is located near the brake caliper to read speed and braking patterns to detect whether ABS brake pulsation is needed to prevent brake lock up. The vehicle speed sensor reads signals from the transmission to give an accurate measurement of vehicle speed to your speedometer and odometer.
Depends on which speed sensor: wheel speed sensor (non-ABS) is located on right front wheel, input speed sensor is located on top of transaxle under air box, output speed sensor is on top of transaxle kind of under brake master cylinder, vehicle speed sensor is located on top of differential housing.
