This usually a bad VSS or a VSS wiring problem, you should also check the gear selector switch just to make sure Park is actually Park and Neutral is actual Neutral, etc. Might be a good idea too pull the codes too.

Tennisshoes thank you very much for taking the time to review and answer my question, I've actually fixed it this morning was a loose ignition fuse I believe , I had bought some fuses and replaced old ones(that where still good) and wiggled my 30 amp ignition fuse/ relay and speedometer started working instantly which allowed the transmission to start shifting properly so I think the 30 amp fuse was loose which I will try n bend the prong better to hold fuse thanks again

Tennisshoes is the gear selector switch located on the right side of the transmission?


Drivers side.

Ok yes that's for the column right ? Now do you know wat the other side plug is? Someone said a passing gear switch ?does that sound right ?


The other side is where the solenoids connections are.
