My 08 v6 can do 100mph in park... Not really but sometimes it thinks it is. This is annoying as it locks all the doors and won't shift out of park. Rocking the car back and forward will bring it to its senses and the speedo returns to zero. I'm guessing it's a flakey sensor but where does the speedo get its reading from? Does it use the wheel speed sensors or a transmission sensor?

Thanks

Francis

Yes! Given that the first 2 replacement abs sensors I bought were DOA, the problem persisted for many months until I figured out it was cheap a$$ chinese ABS sensors causing the problem; my car has hundreds if not thousands of phantom miles on the odo! The problem went away and never came back when I finally figured it out and replaced with a genuine ATE sensor...
