How to Replace an F150 Speed Sensor

The vehicle speed sensor (VSS) in a Ford F-150 is located on the rear section of the transmission. When the vehicle is running it produces a pulsing voltage that quickens or slows proportional to the speed of the vehicle. This information is sent to the power-train control module, the vehicle's main computer, where it is used to manage engine functions, such as fuel delivery and transmission shift control. Replacing the VSS in an F-150 is simple and straightforward.
