Oh ok but the reason im wondering where that sensor is located is because my engine light is on and when I ran a code reader through it gave us a code that means that the speed control sensor is not pluged in or there isnt one. Is that the sensor you showed where it was?

The Hyundai warranty covers drivetrain to 100,000 miles, in any case the fix is what I posted. There are a lot of parts people have never heard of, Most parts store dont sell them, so he wouldnt know.
