VSS (vehicle speed sensor) inside the instrument cluster with the speedometer.

So the speed control sensor is in the engine behind the speedometer?

Not in the engine, it is behind the instrument cluster (dash board).

Oh okay, but the reason I am 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 plugged in or there is not one. Is that the sensor you showed where it was?

If you could please post the actual code, I will look into it. This is for the VSS (vehicle speed sensor).

Three codes came up and I cannot remember what what is what, but they are codes P0441, P0442 and P0722.

Try checking the gas cap for the 442, and the only speed sensor I can find on your car is the one I posted.

I do not think my Hyundai is covered by anything I bought it from a tow yard.

What is the pulse generator? My boyfriend works at an auto part store and he has not heard of it.

The Hyundai warranty covers drive-train 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 do not sell them, so he would not know.
