If both lights stay ON, first I suggest scanned the computer car in order to know if some fault code is stored there. Visit Autozone or AutoShop with OBD scannrer reader tools, sometimes they make this read job for free.

If you find fault codes, note t and send us this details again.

Hope this helps.

Problem with VSS - vehicle speed sensor , maybe ! Is the check engine light on ? Doesn't need to be on to have a DTC - diagnostic trouble code set in the engine computer (PCM/ECM) VSS is located on the tail shaft off the transmission . This could also be a wiring problem for the VSS or computer problem.

Someter dosnt work code p0500 when code cleared eng light comes on as vehicle shifts into 2nd everytime same code reoccures


code p 0500 refers to vehicle speed sensor(VSS)--circuit malfunction===causes --wiring--VSS --- ECM
engine lights report on both engine problems and transmission problems
check all wiring connections to the transmission
the VSS reports to the transmission control module, the road speed and that is when the TCM knows when to change ratios
At this point I would be closely checking the wires and harness connections and then replace the VSS

My engine light is on, my speedometer sometimes works and sometimes doesn't register, some times it bounces back and forth.


code p 500 refers to vehicle speed sensor (VSS) --circuit malfunction====causes ---wiring---VSS sensor---ECM
the engine light reports serious faults with both the engine and the transmission
I would go to an accredited auto transmission shop and have the VSS replaced or checked
The VSS drives the speedo, cruise control,gear changes ( reports to the transmission control module (TCM)

There is a gear that drives the sensor gear much like the old speedo cable gear.
If you connected the sensor and the check engine light went off, chances are the sensor is working.

Hi.

In ordinary conditions the engine replacement should not result in VSS error. TI could not find any bulletin about ECM (the car main computer) reprogramming after engine swap but the VSS signal passes through two modules, the ABS and the ECM. If you have replaced the engine you may need to re-flash or re-program the ECM . There are a couple of forums where users complain about the same problem.The job can be done at the dealer place.

Before reprogramming the ECM do the regular troubleshooting for P0500. The problem could have been already there before the engine swap, the VSS or the VSS wiring may also have been damaged in engine replacement operations. Check the VSS mounted on transmission, Ohms are between 500 and 700, check also volt output on bridge. Check VSS wiring to ABS module and ECU and check the two-wire connector to VSS (check volts) . Check ECU connector. Check PNP switch.

Regards.

My check engie light came on then about a week or so later my speedometer stopped working on my 2000 ford ecsort


The Vehicle Speed Sensor is what tells the Speedometer how fast you are going. Have your check engine light scanned for the code that is set. Replace the Vehicle Speed Sensor if necessary.

Vehicle Speed Sensor (VSS)
Removal
  1. Raise and support the vehicle.
  2. Disconnect the vehicle speed sensor (VSS) electrical connector.
  3. Unclip the heated oxygen sensor (HO2S) wire clip from the VSS bracket.
  4. Remove the VSS retaining bolt.
  5. Remove the VSS.
Installation
  1. To install, reverse the removal procedure.

you need to scan this truck if you have a vss input to the computer then you have a bad trans or a bad vss sensor if no input you should also check the trans range sensor with the scan tool

ABS Light comes on and then Check engine light. Speedometer also isn't working


Does it give you a vss (vehicle speed sensor) code.If your vss is bad it will affect both the ABS and the speedometer.

Check engine light reports VSS problem


A specific trouble code,no matter what the code is,always has a diagnostic route that is available at pay sources like All Data online.It always involves checking the wires involved in the specific circuit,for continuity,along with testing the individual components,like the vehicle speed sensor.Remove the VSS from the trans,and reinspect the drive,and driven gear.The drive gear is attached to the differential down in the trans,and you have to actually look down in the hole,and verify the drive gear is ok and intact.Then look very carefully at the plastic gear that is attached to the VSS,and make sure the middle of it isnt "applecored" as this will cause the VSS to NOT turn or give a signal.Now,reinstall the VSS,and turn the differential.This requires two helpers,one on each side of the car,to turn both tires at the same time,in the same direction (this turns the differential) while you are checking the two wires coming out of the VSS,for an alterenating current flow,that would be sent to the PCM(ECU).Verify VSS operation.If the VSS is producing a signal for the PCM,then the only thing left is the PCM itself,or the wires between the VSS,and PCM(ECU).That goes back to what i was saying about checking the wires' continuity between the sensor and PCM.Make certain the wires involved in the VSS circuit have continuity,and good tight connections at both ends.Good luck.
