Testimonial: "Thanks for advice. I have long trip planned approx 1000 miles. Can this wait or should I have it rectified before I start for the trip."
The Code you're referring to should be a "P0502." What the Code signifies is: "Vehicle speed sensor circuit, low input."

SOURCE: I have code p0507 &
Combustion engines operate by burning an air/fuel mixture of about 14.7 to 1-14.7 parts air to 1 part fuel. When the air ratio goes below 14.7 parts, this is called a "rich" mixture. If the air rises above 14.7 parts, it is called a "lean" mixture.
Rich Mixture = Too much fuel, not enough air
Lean Mixture = Too much air, not enough fuel
To keep the engine running properly, the Engine Control Module measures the oxygen content in the exhaust with oxygen sensors and makes adjustments to the mixture by injecting more or less fuel.
P0507 Idle Control System RPM Higher Than Expected
P2187 System too lean at idle
Things to check:
2. Fuel pressure, fuel pump flow rate
Do you have cold air intake?
Run a fuel system cleaner first and reset software. Long Term Fuel Trim Additive. Max Value, Air/Fuel too Lean.
The engine may stop after starting, run unevenly and misfire or run
at high rpm.
The engine has started and lambda control is active.An additive adaptation is
carried out.Cooling and intake air temperature 60°C.Fuel level at least
The additive adaptation factor is greater than 5.25%.
Checking air/fuel ratio. With this DTC, the engine will be getting too much air or too little fuel.IMPORTANTA crankcase ventilation leak may be one reason as to why a DTC is set. Check crankcase ventilation function before starting regular troubleshooting.
