98 mercury tracer vehicle speed sensor

Showing 2 out of 2 Posts
Question From jubb on 98 mercury tracer vehicle speed sensor

So my transmission has been not shifting into 4th gear lately and has been shifting kinda funny. I finally got an error code which corresponded with a vehicle speed sensor code. The vehicle speed sensor on the 98 tracer plugs into the transmission.

I bought a new vehicle speed sensor and started the repair job. I got screw out that holds it in place, but it will not come out, and I have tried everything I can think of. I've been able to spin the sensor in 360's using vice grips, but it will not come out. I've been working it to try to get stuff under it to pry it up, but I just can't seem to get anything the right size and shape that I can get under it to pry it out.

Do I have to put the car in a certain gear? Do I have to drain all the fluid out? Does this mean the tranny is hosed? I'm in serious need of some advice here.

Thanks,

Justin

Response From dave284 Top Rated Answer

Try spraying wd40 on it....let it soak in then start the pulling...they are very aggravating, they stick because the o-ring has swelled and hardened,...just have a little patience and it will come out.

1996 Mercury GM instrument cluster

Showing 3 out of 21 Posts | Show 18 Hidden Posts
Question From mercuryman on 1996 Mercury GM instrument cluster

My speedometer, and odometer both stopped working.
Before I go to the junk yard for another instrument panel. I want to know where the wires connect to on the other end from the panel to where?

I use my GPS speedometer, but to get my car emission inspected for registration, the odometer must be working.

Response From Hammer Time

How did you even come to the conclusion that the cluster was your problem? There are other components that play a part in the speed signal like the VSS and related wiring.

Response From mercuryman

Most of the odometer problems that have been posted
on the entire computer have suggested changing their cluster, and it started working again. I am not familiar with the possible problems you posted.

Response From Hammer Time

You've shared some real idiotic thoughts here in the past so I'm just going to let you go with your Internet research and not waste my effort here.

Maybe you destroyed the cluster when you ingeniously decided to remove the check engine light bulb to fix your 0/2 and Cat problem

Response From mercuryman

Hammer:
I removed the check eng bulb , cause it distracted me while driving. I had that checked out at Adv auto, and it was a oyg sensor.

I still have the same car with 285,000 MILES.I must be taken good care of it for it to be running so good.
Now, I moved to a state that requires emission testing, but will not test a car that has a faulty odometer. I will check the VSS sensor today, and see what happens.
Bty, I am over 50, and have met many auto mechanics through the years, and all are different, and fix things in their own personnel way. I want to get an emission paper to get it registered in a new state.

Response From kev2

Scan again and post ALL codes.

How does the odometer not work- not lighting up?

Response From mercuryman

How does the odometer not work- not lighting up?

This is a 1996 Grand Marquis. There is no digital odometer. It is stuck on same numbers.

Response From kev2

What are ALL the codes?

I do NOT understand the relationship emission testing to mileage- I do not think the system has a code for that. What state?

Response From mercuryman

The emissions test is in Connecticut, and on the emissions site it says what type of cars can be turned away for testing, and cars without working odometer is one of the laws.

Response From mercuryman

I got another cluster at the junk yard, and the CEL
went off, but the odometer, and speedometer still don't work. I replaced the speed sensor this morning, but it still did not work. I was lucky to get a refund on it, cause its considered an electrical part.
How can I find, or check the wiring, or harness if it has one.

Response From Discretesignals

Does the cruise control work? Do you have any vehicle speed sensor related trouble codes stored in the engine computer?

Response From mercuryman Top Rated Answer

Does the cruise control work? Do you have any vehicle speed sensor related trouble codes stored in the engine computer?


The cruise control does not work. Can I check VSS codes at the auto store , the same way the check eng light.

Response From Discretesignals

Should be able to. If there is a code for VSS signal loss, it is a good bet the speed sensor signal isn't reaching the engine computer, cruise control, or the instrument cluster.

Can't remember if the gear that drives the VSS gear is plastic, but you could inspect the drive gear in the transmission to be sure it isn't missing, damaged, or spinning on the shaft.

If all is good with that, you'll have to do some voltage checks using your volt meter at different parts of the VSS circuit.

Response From mercuryman

I took out the VSS today, and the green plastic gear was in good shape with no defects.
I will bring it to the auto store tommorow, and see what codes they come up with. Maybe a wire got disconnected when I replaced the heater core awhile back. Thanks for your help. I will post again when I get more info.

Response From mercuryman

I took my car to Auto store yesterday, and they will only check the codes if the CEL is on. I am going to check out the wires today.

Response From mercuryman

I went to another auto store today, and they checked my car with the meter, and found nothing. Does the cable that goes into the side of the transmission that
has the speed sensor on one end go through the
firewall then into the back of the instument cluster.

Response From Discretesignals

The speedometer is not cable driven on your vehicle. You may be mistaking the shifter cable for a speedo cable.

The VSS is an electrical generator. You need to have someone with a scope or graphing meter check the VSS signal. The signal the sensor generates is an AC voltage signal. They need to figure out if the VSS is sending a signal out and if it is reaching the instrument cluster. Damaged wiring or wiring that is shorted or grounded out can keep the signal from reaching the speedo, PCM, and the cruise control system.

The sensor's AC voltage amplitude and frequency gets higher and shorter as the vehicle's speed increases. Around 40 mph you should be seeing closed to around 7 volts amplitude.

Response From mercuryman

I took my car to the repair shop today, and it was a bad wire running from the cluster to the fuse box. Both the odometer, and speedometer are working again.

Thanks for all your replies, and help. I would rather get the car repaired, then get another car payment.

Response From Discretesignals

Glad to read that you got it figured out and repaired. Thanks for the follow up as this may help others in the future. Closed as solved. Can be reopened upon request.

Response From Hammer Time

I would think a speedometer would have a lot to do with a safety inspection. Just because he referred to it as emissions testing doesn't mean that's all it really is.

PCM for Sable97

Showing 7 out of 12 Posts | Show 5 Hidden Posts
Question From oddgca on PCM for Sable97

I want to exchange the PCM (computer) in the Mercury Sable 97 3.0 l. The newer module has the same numbers as the the one installed. It has also the same large number sticker "KQQ1". Can it be installed without problems?
The reason for the exchange is that the cruise control does not work anymore. I checked the wiring. It is in order. The signal from the speed sensor however is a sine wave. It seems to be not recogniced from the speed control module. On a Taurus 2000, which has the same engine as the one in the Sable 97, the signal is a square wave. The PCM seems to supply an underlaying wave former and changes the sine wave coming from the vehicle speed sensor into a square wave.
Any help in this matter is greatly appreciated.
Otto

Response From Hammer Time

It will have to be programmed by the dealer before it will run.

Response From Discretesignals

I don't understand why you want to replace the PCM for a cruise control problem. The PCM has nothing to do with the cruise control. The cruise control system has it's own control module that recieves vehicle speed information from the vehicle speed sensor and gets inputs from the steering wheel controls and brake switch. PCM has nothing to do with this. Where are you making your checks?

Response From oddgca

With the plug of the speed module unplugged at the Sable, I don't receive any signal on pin 3 of the plug with the key in start and run.
Comparing it with the Taurus2000 (my wife's car), which has the same engine, I measured 11.43V at start and 13.37 V in run.
After checking all the wiring I made a running test.
Lifting up the front part of the cars, removing the tires and measuring terminal 3 during at low speed running (about 22 km/h). On the Sable I measured with the oscilloscope a sine wave in running.
On the Taurus I measured in start position, a small square wave with high frequency. In running it was a large square wave with about the same amplitude and wave lengths as the sine wave of the Sable.
I assume therefore, that the PCM is supplying an underlaying square wave former from its terminal 58 on the Taurus2000.
Interesting is, that on the Sable the odometer reads the correct vehicle speed during riding. The odometer in the dash port seems to read the sine wave coming from the vehicle speed sensor.
It might be interesting to know, what signal the vehicle speed sensor supplies. Is it a sine wave or a square wave?
Therefore I assume, that the the PCM is defective. Unfortunatley I don't have a schematic of the PC board of the PCM to dig a bit deeper into the function of the PCM.
oddgca

Response From Discretesignals

The vehicle speed sensor on the 97 is a VR sensor that produces an ac voltage signal. If your speedometer is working and you don't have any speed sensor codes stored in the PCM, then your vehicle speed signal is reaching those things. If it is reaching the speed control module, then you have another problem. Like I stated earlier the PCM has nothing to do with the operation of the cruise control. The only thing they have in common is that they both get the vehicle speed signal from the same sensor.

You really need a wiring diagram. Comparing two different years is going to get you in trouble.

Response From oddgca Top Rated Answer

I thank you very much for your fast reply.
I have to look a bid closer into the matter. Presently I don't have access to the workshop manual Sable 1997. I have only the Haynes Repair Manual for Taurus and Sable 1996 thru 2001.
The wiring diagrams in there are the in general the same for both models (Pages 12-23,24,25,26 and 45). On pages 6-15 and 16 is also written about the vehicle speed sensor(VSS). The VSS and the OSS (output Shaft Speed sensor, for models 2000 and later) produces a sine wave ac signal, as I noticed on the Sable 97. Why do I measure a ac square wave signal on the Taurus 2000? Can be the Generic Electronic Module the cause for it?
You will hear from me again in a few days.
Otto
oddgca

Response From Discretesignals

Why do I measure a ac square wave signal on the Taurus 2000?

Because the signal in the 2000 comes from the PCM. The PCM uses the output shaft speed sensor(OSS) as an input to determine vehicle speed. The PCM converts the AC signal from the OSS to DC square wave signal and sends it to the instrument cluster, GEM, and cruise control module.

Hyanes electrical schematics are very vague and most of the time incomplete. You really need to get some better schematics. Try ALLdataDIY.

Response From oddgca

I have to thank you again very much.
As I told you on the previous reply, I was on the wrong track by comparing the function of the speed control modules of the Sable3 97 with the Taurus 2000.
The problem is the wire from the Speed Control Deactivate Switch to plug terminal 9 of the Speed Control Module. This wire is interconnected at In-line plug C222 pins 636. The connection must be bad, because not the full voltage reaches the Speed Control Module. I could not find the In-line connector C222. It must be well hidden behind the dash board. By installing a temporary jumper the speed control works. Tomorrow I will drill a hole into the firewall and feed the wire thru for a more final solution.
Otto
oddgca

Response From Discretesignals

Your welcome. You must have gotten some better schematics. Before you go drilling through the firewall or looking for connector C222, you might want to go to the speed control deactivation switch and check to make sure it isn't open or incorrectly adjusted. Check to make sure you have power before and after the switch with brake pedal fully disengaged.

636 is the circuit number. The pin out is in the connector view for C222.

Response From oddgca

I have good schematics for the Sable 97, but not for the Taurus 2000. This started all the confusion.
The speed control deactivation switch works fine. By unplugging it and putting a jumper into the female side of of the plug, still not the full voltage appeared on pin 9 of the speed control module.
You are right, the pin effected on C222 is not 636. It is pin 13.
Otto
oddgca

Response From oddgca

Thank you again for the information.
I might be on the wrong path about the problem, since I assumed, that the electrical wiring and circuits of the Sable 97 and the Taurus 2000 are the same. I will try to get the diagrams for the Taurus 2000.
Now it seems, that the speed control module is the problem. I checked all the connections and switches around the module. Everything looks fine. I can even switch the cruise control on and receive on the dash board the indication that the cruise control is engaged.
The problem started month ago. First intermittent. It switched off by itself and I had to switch it on again. Now it does not work at all. What can be the cause?

Response From Hammer Time

The PCM isn't even in the circuit. Pin #3 goes to the VSS.

Speedometer/mile counter problems

Showing 2 out of 4 Posts | Show 2 Hidden Posts
Question From julius.caesar.09 on Speedometer/mile counter problems

So um, the one day I was going to school and I looked down at the speedometer and it said I was going 50 and i was like okay. well then i looked back a few minutes later and it was at about 25. Well on the way home from school the speedometer was dead, as was the mile counter and the overall mileage. I have absolutely no idea what to do about this. I don't know a whole lot of anything about cars and I was wondering if someone could help me. Thanks.

Also in case it helps, my car is a 1999 Mercury Tracer. thanks

Response From steve01832 Top Rated Answer

The vehicle speed sensor and its circuit should be checked. This runs the speedo and gives the PCM vehicle speed.

Steve

Response From Guest

forgot about some of those things. my cruise control doesn't work at all and my check engine light is on. both happened at the same time when the speedometer died. i dont know what that means. thank you for your help so far.

Response From steve01832

The VSS circuit should be checked. The PCM needs to see vehicle speed for the cruise control to work. The VSS operates the speedometer also. The VSS may kick the MIL to alert the driver of a problem. The speedo and cruise rely solely on a vehicle speed signal or these systems will fail.
