My speedometer decided to quit working this morning. The odometer is lit up but its not adding miles as I drive. Has anyone encountered this problem?

Thanks in advance for all your expertise!

Definitely a speed sensor failure and as drathreon said, it should be on top of the transmission.

I'd go look for you but I sold my '04 a few months ago so I can't help you there. Sorry.

The output and input speed sensors seem to only cause harsh auto changes, I was given a speed sensor with my 2002 2.4 lt V6
auto and it looks nothing like those others.
So there must be another sensor, have had no joy from anyone as yet.
