My 2000 Ranger had the PO500 code problem of ABS, no shifts no speedo and I replaced the VSS on the differential and the plug end that connected it and the only result I got was the PO500 code disappeared--still ABS, no shifts no speedo
The aftermarket plug I used had 2 white wires so I assumed that meant it could be wired either way since the VSS is only a magnetic pickup
I tried the local Ford parts department to see if maybe there were more sensors on the wheels or whatever and they could only say there was 1 sensor inside the transmission ans MAYBE there could be 1 on each wheel or the front wheels or the rear wheels--how can a trained not be able to read what sensors are on a given vehicle
I am afraid I have a loose wire but I cain't even find a wiring diagram showing the same color wires I have on my truck
I inherited this Ranger when it had 5400 miles on it but was 4 years old and it NEVER shifted correctly(4R44E)
As far as I know there is only one speed sensor on your truck, top of the rear, it makes no differance how the wires go it's just a magnetic pickup. Do you know what rear you have? the 8.8 I have seen the reluctor ring walk off the carrier and not get a signal, no speedo, cruise control or ABS are all signs your not getting the signal from the speed sensor, Do you have a DOM meter that reads htz, or frequency? you could probe the sensor and spin the wheel you should see a strong change in the frequency on the meter. That way you dont have to pull the cover and make a mess. double check the depth of the new and old sensor. I'm leaning that way, let someone else chime in and maybe we can get ya going.

Thank you--I seem to have fixed my problem--at least for now--the local parts store had given me the wrong part--it looked identical but was for a 4 wheel drive truck --the computer recognized it and dropped the PO500 engine code but did not recognize the in formation it sent--I tried the connection under the cab and it seemed OK before accidently getting a counter person to check the part number on the part I was given while trying to compare the lengths of the magnetic pick-ups on my old part and the new one I had installed
