It's a speed sensor switch on the car that needs to be replaced. I don't know where the first answer is coming from. I'm not aware of any switch regarding the speed sensors, maybe I'm tired. I would suspect a problem in the electrcial system- battery, alternator being the most probable. answer speed sensor will not shut down ans engine nor will it prevent it from cranking or starting. sounds like an electrical problem to me could even be your ignition switch most likely in your computer if it was battery anew battery will fix it also a a bad battery will affect your computer alternator will not stop it from cranking
