Hey,

I am new here but have a question that is repeated on a number of forums...

I have a 2006 Ford Ka 1.3, a few days back the speedo stopped working and then I ended up with a with a mil light on. I ran a diagnostic myself and found that the Vehicle speed sensor is faulty.

I followed teh manual I had ans was unable to find the sensor at all. I checked where they said but the manual is for the earlier model ka. With my 2006 model it is a duratec engine with a different gearbox.

The model is fitted with abs - could the wheel sensors act as the speed sensor too?

My question is... where is the speed sensor mounted... and whats the easiest way to get to it?

Any advice would be appreciated (pictures even more so.)

Thanks in advance to any replies!!!

Your best bet would be to pop around to your friendly Ford dealer and ask a mechanic.

Usually with ABS the wheel sensors act as your VSS.
