Rear speed sensor ?

I was just wondering if anyone had a picture of the rear speed sensor on the tranny...my OD light was flashing so i had it checked for codes and the rear speed sensor was the only one that showed up.

Speed Sensor

Pretty sure that the speed sensor is located on top of the rear diff. Same one for the anti lock brakes.

so is there a different name for the sensor on the back of the trannie? I just replaced my sensor on the rear diff because my ABS light was staying on...I had it scanned today and it showed the sensor on the back of the trans...i thought it was called the rear speed sensor but maybe its called something else?

Depending upon the year, there could be 2 in the trans. There is a plug that you just push the tabs away on and there is a 3/8ths bolt holding the bracket in and then you just need to pry the sensor out.

There is one on the tailshaft just before where it necks down, and another on the driverside just after the bellhousing.

the only issue i had was the OD light would flash and sometimes if i had just started it up it would act like when a trans is low on transmission fluid and wouldnt really move...it only did this to me 2 times, the transmission fluid was fine both times when i checked it. The only other thing is my OD light would flash but it shifted fine, so i had a guy where i work pull the codes with a solstis, not sure if that is the correct name but its a snap on brand and the sensor is what showed up. I replaced the sensor tonight so i guess its kinda to early to tell if that was the problem as it hasnt thrown any codes as of yet.

Well heres a update...i dont think it was the sensor, Yesterday it threw a code again but when i started to go it acted like it came out of gear for a second and then took off, TC maybe?? Going to have it scanned again 2 morrow, The funny thing is it only does it when the truck is cold and not up to temp yet.
