SOURCE: code P0501 vehicle speed sensor A range/

I found an answer to this in the reverse direction. While changing my front brakes, I noticed that the sprocket pickup for the speed sensor on the front passenger side half shaft that works with the sensor was cracked and ready to fall off. I removed it so that it wouldn't fly off and puncture a tire. I do NOT have Anti Lock Brakes on my 2001 Santa Fe. I started up the car wondering what to expect and experienced a P0501, P1529, P0500 and a second P0501. Looks like it time for a new half shaft (Axle).

How to change a speed sensor on 2004 chevy surban

That depends on WHICH speed sensor you want to change. The Vehicle speed sensor? a front wheel speed sensor? A rear wheel speed sensor? an input shaft or turbine speed sensor?

Speedometer doesn't work when car has been standing over night. when car has warmed up it works ok

chances are the vehicle speed sesnsor is playing up. Hard to test without a scan tool or diagnostic equipment. If available scan vehicle for fault codes and graph the vehicle speed sensor. If not i would take it to someone that can scan the vehicle and graph the vehicle speed sensor first thing in the morning. good luck

Speedometer and Odometer quit working intermittently. Car has over 60,000 miles.

Try to look for the VSS (Vehicle Speed Sensor) on the transmission and make sure all connections are tight and clean on the harness.

P0501 code on 2004 dodge ram, how to repiar

Causes A P0501 DTC trouble code may be caused by one or more of the following:
  • The Vehicle Speed Sensor (VSS) is not reading (functioning) properly
  • There is a broken/frayed wire leading to the vehicle speed sensor
  • The vehicle's PCM is not correctly configured for the actual tire size on the vehicle
Possible Solutions The simplest thing to do is to reset the code and see if it comes back.
Next, check all wiring and connectors that lead to the speed sensor. The location of the sensor depends on your vehicle. The sensor could be on the rear axle, transmission, or perhaps the wheel hub (brake) assembly.
If the wiring and connectors are OK, then check the voltage at the speed sensor. Again, the exact procedure wil depend on your make and model of vehicle.
If everything looks OK, replace the sensor.

Speedometer is reading incorrectly. need to replace the speed sensor on the transmission or some where else.

Yes, I would start at the speed sensor on the transmission called the VSS (Vehicle Speed Sensor).

Also, are the tires the right size for the vehicle as indicated by the placard on the inside of the door?

The following is the example for some GMC Envoys (I had to guess on the engine size):

Vehicle Speed Sensor Removal & Installation To Remove:
  1. Disconnect the vehicle speed sensor connector. Vehicle speed sensor (A), Retaining bolt (B), O-ring (C) vsssensor.gif

  2. Detach the vehicle speed sensor from the transfer case.
  3. Remove the o-ring from the vehicle speed sensor.
To Install:
  1. Apply transmission fluid to the o-ring.
  2. Install the o-ring onto the vehicle speed sensor.
  3. Attach the vehicle speed sensor to the transfer case. Torque the bolt to 97 in-lb (11 Nm).
  4. Connect the vehicle speed sensor connector.

Where is speed senor on a Hyundai Sonatas

Hyundai VSS locations:
On 1999-2003 vehicles, the vehicle speed sensor is built into the speedometer. On 2004-2005 vehicles, the vehicle speed sensor is attached to the output shaft of the transaxle.

On 1996-2003 vehicles, the vehicle speed sensor is built into the speedometer. On 2004-2005 vehicles, the vehicle speed sensor is attached to the output shaft of the transaxle.

I have P0770 code on my 2003 Toyota Matrix 2WD L4-1.8L (1ZZ-FE) auto XR with ABS. I have couple more questions. I was replaced a ECM already and the P0770 come out after 1 days. I have the R&R Speed...

First I would try resetting the ECU by disconnecting the battery for a few minutes. This will remove the code. Then see if it comes back. Mind you you will not pass inspection, because the ECU will need to monitor a certain amount of driving "cycles" before inspection will accept the findings. Before that, replace your O2 sensors, and get those out of the way. P0770 is a Shift Solenoid E Malfunction. You will have to look at a manual to find out which Shift Solenoid that "E" refers to and where it is located. TC lockup, refers to the TC lockup solenoid. If so I would try replacing that and going from there. The auto transmission is a pretty complicated beast, and even the most experienced DIY'ers would go past the normal maintenance. HOWEVER, changing solenoids is considered, at least to me, DIY maintenance. Whats is your RPM when cruising at say 60 mph. If its more than 2400 rpms, then i would say it is your lockup solenoid. hope this helps

Whats wrong my abs light is on, my brake light is on and my speedometer nor odometer are working? 2004 jeep grand cherokee larado 6 cyl 4.0 liter

here is the short version...

the vehicle speed sensor is actual an interpreted signal from the ABS module and the ABS module uses the wheel speed sensors

therefore, if the ABS module sees a problem with any sensor it will affect the PCM input for vehicle speed

another possibility, but worst case, is the ABS module has failed

in either case you will need a professional scan tool to monitor actual wheel speed versus PCM vehicle speed

Idling to high

Hi jmach,

There is nothing wrong with your vehicle and no need to have anything repaired.... The high idle speed is controlled by the on board ECU...(the Electronic Control Unit).... When starting the vehicle from cold, the automatic enrichment of fuel increases the idle speed... Depending on the ambient air temperature.... the colder the weather, the longer the engine will take longer to return to normal idle speed. Thats how it's designed to operate.
