I have a 99 ranger 4x4 you might be surprised that you dont have a vss ! Instead look on your rear axel . its your abs sensor, or also called, rear speed sensor!
The VSS vehicle speed sensor on top of the transmission is faulty.
The VSS in a 2001 Ford Escape is located on the left rear side of the transmission. There is only about an inch of it that can be seen.
ford vss wire locationif the harness is similar to 02 ranger look behnd radio to the left there is a module the grey/black is the vss also if your vehicles radio volume automaticaly increases with the speed of your vehicle then the wire will also be located in your radio harness hope this helps>>>>> Jim t
I don't believe it has one , the Ford Explorers 1996 and newer models don't have a conventional speedometer cable , they have an electronic speedometer and a vehicle speed sensor ( VSS )
The vss is on top of the trans-axle, behind the engine on the passenger side.
It is located in the center of the differential (Rear end) of the truck. Just follow the wires down and you'll see it. One 10mm(I belive) bolt holds it in.
on the top of the differential
Replace the VSS and wires.
Screwed into the rear of the transmission housing.
I remove the VSS, and fill with 3.5 qts of fluid(syn preferably), then reinstall the vss...
It's on the top back corner of the transmission.
The VSS is located on the transmission tailshaft extension housing
Check the #6 fuse. If it is good then the VSS needs replacing.
Replace it.......its one bolt on the side of the transmission.....

Here is the location of the vss. http://picasaweb.google.com/cefiro.calsonic/P0720VSS# Thanks to the guys at, http://forums.maxima.org/5th-generation-maxima-2000-2003/563476-tranny-missing-p0720-help-please.html You rock...
Goes from the VSS to the ECM. Find the VSS, and you can trace it from there.
The VSS (Vehicle Speed Sensor) is located on the transmission. If the speedometer is not working, it is rarely the VSS causing the problem. I would first check fuses and the ECU
raise the vehicle,disconnect the electrcal connection from the vss. remove the mounting bolt and withdraw the vss from the transaxle case. replace sensor "O" ring.
check the windshield washer motor like on the 2007 ford explorer and expedition and most pickup's.
the VSS is right on top of the Transmission with a plug on top of the VSS
I just replaced mine on a 1998 contour 2.2 4cyl. Take the right passenger wheel off , follow the axle until it goes into the transmission (below starter motor), then look towards rear of car/axle 3 inches, look up and it there. One 8mm bolt holds it in. Twist it out, disconnect the wire from the top engine compartment. A speedo gear pulls out of the VSS. You can buy a VSS without the sppedo gear and housing cause you can screw the old housing in the new one. Vss is around $50.
