Hi all. A quick question about the Gen III (2006) transmission electric cable/harness.

There are only 3 electric connections to the trans. Right?
Skip shift solenoid
Back-up light switch
Reverse lockout solenoid

That's all I can see on the trans or in the factory manuals/parts lists.

A little confused because the Tremec transmission manual shows a speed sensor.

I think the Gen III gets it's speedometer feed from the hubs right?

Just wondering.

Cheers
Greg

Hi Steve. Yup The manual shows a speed sensor.

But the trans doesn't have one.

But here is what I've learned.

Gen I and II (pre ABS) used the speed sensor for a number of different speed related functions: deceleration fuel cutoff, skip shift, idle control and cooling fan shutoff at high speeds.

But with ABS (Gen III and up) those signals now come from the hub.

Maybe the factory manual guys got lazy or cheap and didn't update the Gen III manuals.

Cheers
Greg
