Hello dodge guys,
recently we took our 95 turbo diesel 2wheel drive automatic to the dealer
to troubleshoot our low voltage prob..they said it was a sensor at the
starter???the bill shows a fee for changing out the speed sensor 69 labor
and 102 part!!!!!i believe this sensor is on the side of the tranny and it
does not look new...also when i checked the truck the next day the #$%^%#$
starter was about to fall off and was missing a bolt!!!!!!!could have
caused a fire(if positive wire hit frame)..can anyone tell me where the
speed sensor is??i should be able to tell if it is new??Want to have
things in order before i present the issue to the dealership service
dept..Thanks for any help...
Sensor at the starter, huh? Must be one of those new-fangled OBD-III
emissions-controlled starters (yeah - there's no "sensor" there)
On a '95, the speed sensor is on the tailshaft of the transmission (since
you have a 2WD - it's on the transfer-case on 4x4 models). You also have a
sensor in the rear differential, for the RWAL system. But in '95, this
sensor is only for the ABS system, and has nothing to do with vehicle speed
(unlike '98 and newer vehicles).
More importantly, though - what the heck does a vehicle speed sensor have to
do with a low voltage problem? (Short answer - nothing... but it would be
interesting to hear their explanation)
