No. The speed sensor is located on the transmission, and is what drives the speedometer cable, which drives the speedo head. The speedo head is another name for the the speedometer, which is the display gauge that you see while sitting in the car.

How do you replace the odometer sensor on a 1996 Ford Taurus?

There is no such thing as an "odometer sensor." There is a vehicle speed sensor that is located on the output shaft housing of the transmission. That sends info to the speedometer. From there, the speedometer and the odometer are both operated internally, so if your speedo is working, but the odometer isn't, you have a problem inside the speedo head assembly.

What is the location of the speed sensor on a 97 Ford Taurus?

It is called the "vehical speed sensor". If i remember correctly it about $35 dollars at rhe parts store. This sensor will make your car not shift out of first or hold out first a lot longer, and at times you may not have a speedo. It is located on the tranny directly below the intake manifold. This is a hard one. I crawled on top of my car and laid the side of my face on the maniflold. please do this when its cold. Arms on both sides till you find this thing sticking out at a 45 degree angle pointing twards the driver seat. Its only one bolt 10mm, I think. finding where that bolt goes back without being able to see it is the hard part. Good luck 20 minutes for me.
