    Do KJ's with automatic trannies and manuals share the same speedo sensor? I ask because my speedo reads 5-7mph fast aat all speeds. My jeep has a manual, and I'm wondering if it's possible the PO used the wrong sensor. Thanks.

    Your signature states 2007 Kj and that is much different than an 05 automatic for instance that uses a speed sensor at rear diff.
    The 07 uses ABS speed sensors 1 at each wheel.
    If you have no ABS light on my thought is that the previous owner may have had a tire re-calibration entered into the Jeep's computer & that may need to be checked.
    For a manual transmission, I'd call the dealer, with your VIN number and see what they have to say, I've only got the auto 42RLE.

    Thanks, I figured I would have to call them. I do have a code for 'implausible wheel speed' for the rear passenger sensor. And there's a sensor on the rear differential over the pinion, so I figured that was it.

    I'm not really sure what happened with the title... I must not have had enough coffee in me at the time.
