Should have a check engine light on, get the code and see what it says.

If i could, can I get a diagram of the wiring or just how to wire it? Thanks

Illuminated CEL means no VTEC. It not engaging has nothing to do with the VSS.

ok. i tried wiring the vss to the ecu and now the middle wire (yellow/blue) to power and its not sending any fuel? for it to send fuel, i need to wire it to the battery and then unplug it everytime so my battery doesn't drain out. i'll try a new plug and see how that goes too.

go to a junk yard and cut a few connectors with wires to replace the connector end on the harness along with a few inches of wire. I found mine was corroded badly and that fixed it. Theres no need to run a new wire from the vss to the ecu if you just have a bad end.

As code 17 is not thrown, check whether the wire running between the VSS plug and cluster/speedometer is broken.

The VSS speed signal wire runs to B2 (Yel/Blu wire) in the cluster. Check for continuity (not voltage) from B2 in the cluster connector to the Yel/Wht wire terminal in the VSS connector.

Your wiring harness may be bad. No speed sensor means no vtec!
