Check engine light came on.The speed sensor code (#17) has come up. What causes this and what is the fix?

Often that problem is wiring related, or the VSS sensor itself is bad.

First place to look is to check the wiring right at the VSS. It's contained in a small metal box that is fastened to the top side of your transmission, near the firewall. You'll see the wires. Check for breakage or disconnections.
