What does BMW 528i code p0500 senor A means?


The P0500 code indicates a problems with the ABS system. If you have recently replaced wheel sensors, it sounds like one or more may be disconnected or flaky.

From datsc.com:
What does this mean? OBD Code P0500refers to
Basically this means that the vehicle's speed as read by the Vehicle Speed Sensor (VSS) is not working properly.
Symptoms Possible sumptoms of OBD code P0500
loss of anti-lock brakes the "anti-lock" or "brake" warning lamps on the dash may be lit the speedometer or odometer may not work properly (or at all) your vehicle's RPM limiter may be decreased the shifting of an automatic transmission may become erratic other symptoms may also be present
Causes Possible causes of OBD code P0500
A code P0500 may mean that one or more of the following has happened: 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 will depend on your make and model of vehicle. If everything looks OK, replace the sensor.

2002 4 runner has a P0500 and the speedometer does not work, also abs light and brake light and traction light is on


Here is the definition of the code.
You replaced the sensor which is the easiest thing to do, now you will have to troubleshoot the circuit back to the computer. Note the reference to the combo meter in the circuit. You may want to research this online.

P0500 TOYOTA Description The vehicle speed sensor outputs a 4 pulse signal for every revolution of the rotor shaft, which is rotated by the transmission output shaft via the driven gear. After this signal is converted into a more precise rectangular waveform by the waveform shaping circuit inside the combination meter, it is then transmitted to the Engine Control Module (ECM). The ECM determines the vehicle speed based on the frequency of these pulse signals.

Code u1120 and code 0501


U1120 means the PCM doesn't receive a vehicle speed signal from the Anti-lock brake Module over the CAN C bus. This can be caused by the ABS module, PCM or something wrong with the can bus. This might be just an erroneous code and may never set again

Code P0501 Vehicle Speed Sensor Range/Performance
What does that mean? Basically this means that the vehicle's speed as read by the Vehicle Speed Sensor (VSS) is not working properly.
Potential Symptoms This code is different from the P0500 code in the fact that it may not trigger the malfunction indicator light (MIL). Potential symptoms are basically the same as the P0500 VSS code:

  • loss of anti-lock brakes
  • the "anti-lock" or "brake" warning lamps on the dash may be lit
  • the speedometer or odometer may not work properly (or at all)
  • your vehicle's RPM limiter may be decreased
  • the shifting of an automatic transmission may become erratic
  • other symptoms may also be present
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 will depend on your make and model of vehicle.
If everything looks OK, replace the sensor.

In case of a problem or clarification or my solution was insufficient, don't hesitate to post me a reply.

If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.

ABS light has come on and speedometer not


It probably only needs a new VSS (vehicle speed sensor). Since the ABS uses the wheel speed and vehicle speed to determine ABS operaton, is makes sense that the ABS light is on if the VSS failed. The computer also uses the VSS to operate your speedometer.

The speed sensor will be about $40-70 for a manual transmission and about $70 for the automatic transmission. You'll find the speed sensor in the transmission near the CV axles. It is likely you'll be able to reach it yourself and that'll save you money and a trip to the shop.
