no what matters is if the pulses are good.
and the transmission not slipping.
the TCM is not genious level yet.
are you asking what P0500 means.
or want us to tell you all things stated in fSM for this code.
what? guessing you can do .
ever heard of alldata.com (DIY)
ever read that page on 500s?
i guess not.
3.3L v6 ?
Trouble Code Conditions:
VEHICLE SPEED SENSOR "A"
The ECM detects following conditions simultaneously for 2 secnonds (1 trip detection logic):
No SPD (speed sensor) signal while ECM detects NC (transmission counter gear) signal is more than 300 RPM Park/Neutral position switch is OFF (When shift lever is in other than P and N positions) Possible Causes:
- Open or short in speed sensor circuit
- Speed sensor
- Combination meter
- Skid control ECU
im trying to decode that too, the sensors
are called, C3 counter gear sensor, and Turbin T3 sensor
but the book keeps changing names in the book.
i think it means, counter gear shows correct RPM
but the turbine gear sensor T3 is dead.
while in gear. is too hard for them to say. so i said it.
and my guess, moving,
after all transmission slip moving
in fact i can scan your car and prove that
i scan it in park, then indrive, no moving
got 500s, or are 500 happening flogging engine.
but the ECU signal is either dead for turbine sensor or is way too slow. see incongruity from 300+ rpm on counter gear.
500 means dead, not intermittant.
i looked at all codes for turbine.
so my best guess (no real fsm only alldata)
is Turbine is the clutch sensor. (input rpm to trans-clutch)
and counter gear is tail shaft sensor.? (output speed)
so the front clutch sensor is dead
or being grounded out, or is not connected, (rusty conns?)
Most FSM made do a poor job, at showing possible bad parts.
here is better
- the sensor is weak or dead
- the sensor connections are bad.
- the sensor, signals do not arrive at the PCM /TCM, due to bad wires, or anything on that line shorting that line out.
- better (yes?, this is electronics) no a parts swap game.
if the car drives ok then the trans does not slip.
the TCM sees both ends and can detect, bad sensors or gross slip.
i think it means bad sensor. in this case only.
what does this mean?
- having difficulty locating it
can buy one, find one, can't insert it, or?
