Check VSS, connector and wiring from connector to PCM.

Only one way to know. Put it back correctly.

Edit.
For the 1998/1999 SVT, VSS signal is Pin 58 on the PCM connector. And that wire should be White/Violet.

Only one way to know. Put it back but wait while I look through the PCM wiring.



ok the old harness had that plug cut and spliced in on it also but the wires weren't the same colors on the new harness so i kinda guessed. I wasn't sure what that was for til now

If the old VSS has a tell tale sign of Green/Red wire, then it was from an early 1995 and won't work for you. You will need a new VSS and connector (if you threw away the connector from your SVT when you spliced it) .

Note that the signal should be 0 mph:0 hertz, and 55 mph:125 hertz

oh and the plug i took off the harness was a wide 4 wire plug with the metal clip that locks it on but with only 2 wires in it. the one to the vss was small and curved on one side i think but looked nothing like the one that hooks to it
