    This appears to be very helpful information. I'll try to get off work early today and see if i can find an end that looks like the one you sent me a picture of

    Working only from your first photo which doesn't show the inside end too well I still think that's what you'll find.

    Another thought. If you do find that it works as I described above be sure to carefully dry the inside of both halves of the connector before plugging it all together. It may be a trick of the photo but your 2nd one appears to show water inside the end of the connector. There is an orange silicone rubber seal between the two halves of the connector and any condensation trapped inside could cause all sorts of long-term problems.

    You're correct, i did get a little water in there while trying to clean it for the picture. I'll be sure to blow it out really good and make sure it's dry before i connect them. I also tried to send better pictures of the inside of the connectors

    Based on that photo I'm 99% certain that what you are looking at on the machine end is a complete connector that will need one half of it removing before you can hook your speed sensor connector to it.

    Nige your 99% prediction was 100% correct. There was a half connector on the wire coming from the machine. I separated it and took the half connector off and it fitted right in there. However the code was still there. Do i need to reset that code or does it automatically reset? And if so then how do i reset the code? Once again Nige thanks for your expertise, patience, and information.

    Turning the battery isolator off for a few minutes and back on again usually does it.

    If you don’t have one disconnect your battery... Let us know if that works.

    Doesn’t the machine also have to move a few revolutions of the travel motor to produce a kosher signal from the sensor.?

    Try doing both and see if the Code disappears.

    Nige you and Chrisso are genius. You guys instructed me to the fix to my problem( a complete novice with no real formal training) by process of elimination. I got it up on blocks by lifting the rear with my backhoe and used the bucket of the skid steer to elevate the front. Then i raised the cab(very easily by instructions from you tube). That way i was able to access that speed sensor from under the cab and the bottom of the machine. I took the old speed sensor out with the allen screw, changed it, unhooked the battery for 5 minutes, and whatta ya know? Boom... PROBLEM SOLVED. Again thanks for you patience nd expertise
