I had actually the exact same thing occur a pair months ago. TCS light, check engine and also D4 flashing in addition to the poor speedo. Replaced the VSS and also all is good.

I"ll have to take it come the dealer for them to pull the code. I just wanted to watch if someone skilled the same thing as I to be now. Ns do recognize the mine VSS is walk out but I don"t think the difficulty I"m suffering is regarded that.
You don"t must go come the dealer to pull the code. You deserve to do that yourself. Do a search and you"ll uncover instructions on just how to perform it. It"s a piece of cake.
yea, search and learn to traction the code. After that, short article up what friend found. We can assist from there....

my inspect engine light simply came top top too. No TCS light as mine"s a 92 through no traction control. It"s getting me worried since i don"t want it to break down on me. Ns pulled over, checked points that i was acquainted with. Climate i checked the oil. Ns was low. The oil was simply touching the tip. Ns filled it up. I"ve searched and also found this thread. Through the way, what is VSS? I"m not familiar with this term.

Vehicle rate Sensor (VSS) - the most apparent symptom through a negative one is an erratic speedometer, the usage stops moving tooas because that the examine engine, you much better pull the code, here"s the DIY:http://www.gimpppa.org/vbulletin/showthread.php?s=&threadid=1972

after reading this thread... Could it it is in my ecu? I simply bought this ecu chipped through telion. I"ve to be driving that for about a month on and off (not consistently). Any type of ideas? also, can anyone tell me specifically where this "service connector" is located and also what the looks like? do i need to take off the underside "kickpanel" off from the passenger next to see this? many thanks in advancement guys.
it must be on the passenger floor, right where the carpet starts and the reduced dash covering on the passenger side meets. It have to be linked to a red clip, totally free floating. 2 wire connector needing a document clip, that speaker wire bent right into a loop.BTW: when the VSS gets extremely bad, the CEL will certainly illuminate, for this reason the traction could additionally be connected with that being the the ecu cant check out what the wheels room doing, also cruise regulate wont function, when the VSS is shot.
I can fill yah with actual millionaire shit, escargot, my automobile go 160 swiftly, reckit to buy a brand-new one......Biggie love the kind II.
If it transforms out to it is in an worry with the ECU SBX allow me know, though ns am virtually 100% optimistic that the is not I want you to recognize that ns am available to aid if need be.

speaking of inspect engine lights. I had actually one come one today.here"s what happened. 2 work ago, i began my coupe, and revved it a couple of times and also turned it off. Now i began her up. Check engine light. Confirm the code, o2 sensor. So i revved the engine a couple of times. Shut her off, started ago up. No codes. Ns let her run for a tiny bit, due to the fact that i can"t drive her (weird ball joint issue)

sure thing, telion. Ns haven"t had the time to traction the code, yet i"ll perform it once i have time later. I"m certain it"s no the chip though due to the fact that i"ve had actually it top top for about a month now? why would certainly it wait every this time for the irradiate to rotate on? i"ll get ago to girlfriend guys.
