Question about 2002 Jeep Liberty
Check engine light is on, no speed ohmmeter or odometer working. Took it to auto zone for diagnostic test....they are telling me speed sensor. Where is this located? By looking at the part it looks easy to replace. Help please.

I have a 2002 Jeep Liberty Limited with the same problem. The main problem I have found to be the routing of the speed sensor wires located on the rear difrential. They are 2 blue wires on my jeep and probably the same on yours. The problem is that they rub on the E-brake cable and once the wire is exposed they short and the speedometer and any other options running off they speed sensor quit working and that includes the tranny shift points and can cause the torque converter to not unlock and cause stalls. I am having the same problem for the third time and chrysler and jeep are both aware of the problem and unwilling to repair the problem or post a recall.

My spedometer stopped working also and the check engine light is on...Yes, it's the speed sensor...The speed sensor on a Jeep Liberty is located on the rear axel which is why it dies, because of where it's placed everytime you go over a bump, pot hole etc the sensor hits against each other...This should really be a recall on Jeeps end, for placement! Good luck to all of you with this problem! Before finding out what the probelm was (by a neighbor/mechanic) I brought the car to Chrysler and after sucking thousands from me...and not fixing the error, I fixed it in front of my house for the mer cost of the peice and a six pack for my neighbor!

Speed sensors are generally in one of two places, either on the back of the transmission, usually on the top side, or in the actual rear end. If the vehicle is a 4x4, it will be on the transfer case, generally on the back side near the top.

It's the speed sensor. This has happened on my '03 twice. It's one of 3 sensors located on top of the differential.
