Exactly where is the VSS wire and the Tach wire?

I am in the process of installing an after market cruise control, and the last two wires need to be connected to the connections mentioned above.

A small pictorial representation would be greatly appreciated if at all possible.

TIA

The vehicle speed sensor is located on top of the transaxle. If the vehicle is equipped with a tachometer, then it will be ran by the speed sensor as well. Diagram of wires from the speed sensor is below. I have highlighted the appropriate wires for your convenience.

NOTE: The blue wire continues on to the PCM off screen.

Uhmm. Thanks a million but.
I apologise for not mentioning before, the wires are supposed to be:
1 - VSS = Blue/White
2 - Tach = Yellow/Green

Some more info I found:
Where is/could be
1 - *location 4-31 @ ECM?
2 - *Location 16 on distributor?

Could they be somewhere on that box that is on top of the *middle tunnel*,
on the right side (passenger side)?
The wires to be connected are inside the cabin.

Thank you for efforts

My apologies. I have found and posted the VSS wire for you located inside of cab. It is located under the middle of the dash at the PCM. The tachometer signal wire (yellow/green) will be located behind the instrument cluster or in left hand side of steering column.

When hooking up a cruise control system, the tach is usually not required for the cruise control to work, it is just a safety feature. If the engine RPM's reach a certain rate (usually at or above 4000) the cruise control will disengage preventing any possible harm to the engine.

Yep, it sure did. I had a feeling that that was where the VSS wire would be but the numbers did not correspond.

Now I know, and thank you guys !
