Help! D4 Flashing and Check Engine light!

On my way to school my speedometer started spazing and would occasionally stop working. Not to mention D4 was flashing in the cluster and the Check engine light came on. When I started her up at lunch everything went smooth for about 5 minutes then it started freaking out again.

By the way I tried searching but I couldn't find a thread with the exact answer!

I need help ASAP!

thanks in advanced

Does the VSS also control the reason behind the "check engine light"?
sorry but I don't know much about the electronics...

yes engine check light does come on if your VSS doesn't work. my car has the same problem now. i will get them replace soon. so does your engine check light come up but when you turn off the engine and turn it back on again does it stay on or not? My engine check light come on then i turn my engine off then turn it back on again engine check light didn't show up.

ok I was driving home tonite from work and nothing went wrong for the whole 15 minute trip. Also earlier when I turned off the car the light didnt come back on after I started it up again.
Does anyone know what a new VSS costs? I think I might by grants for that price.

I am having the same symptoms with my car 92 coupe. Speedometer started going haywire, D4 light started blinking, and the check engine light came on. I drove to work this way, and it was all fine on my drive back home, and the next day weekend I did over 100 miles of driving and no problems. Then it started up again on monday. I bought a VSS repair kit on ebay for $79.00,original OEM. I should have it by this weekend, and will attempt to install it myself. based on the other threads I've read, it sounds like the repair kit will work. Iam keeping my fingers crossed it will. I've read that when this happens, it will not prevent you from driving the car, but if you wait too long to fix it, your car maynot want to shift out of first gear if you have an automatic. this is why i bought the repair kit asap.

SEARCH. there are literally 1000's of threads on this.

VSS failure is one of the most common problems with legends. it will cause the D4 light to blink as well as trip the check engine light. only way to fix it is to buy a new sensor, $70ish from AofA.

its all you need to fix the speed sensor, its a rebuild kit for the speed sensor, buying a new one is dumb as hell, theese are all new parts, replaces all of the electronic parts in the speed sensor.
pretty much making it a brand new speed sensor, it took me 20mins tops to do this
pull the speed sensor out after unhooking it. and then follow directions.
super simple, No you cant do this while the speed sensor is mounted to the transmission. its inpossible unless you have special tools that will run you quoite a bit of money, dont be afraid to pull it out, just make marks on the speed sensor and the tranny, and palce it back just like it was, dont spin the gear. some fluid will drain out! Have a wash cloth handy to stuff up in the hold or have a big sock. Someone told me to put a sock inside a condom or plastic bag or rubber glove and plug the hole up while the sensor is pulled out.
ther is one bolt holding the sensor to the trany.
super simple shit.
it took me 20 mins and i was extremely intoxicated. So id say sober 10mins.
be sure, absolutely shure to have some gloves, and towels to make sure all parts are clean, and the seals are clean as hell too, you do not want it to not seal properly!!!
it takes some fines, and some patience.

Doesn't anyone search anymore?? It's your VSS, either buy a rebuild kit, buy one from a member on here, or buy it new. Next time, do a search, there are sooo many threads covering this exact same topic.
