Question about 2006 Kia Sorento
I doubt it.
Code 501 is for a problem with the speed sensor in the transmission which affects the speedometer and shifting.

Testimonial: "that's what I was afraid of. My problem is the random starting and not starting but engine light and ABS as well as ESC lights are on and the code I get is for a speed sensor. Guess I might be having a problem with the ECM"

What you have is a real mess
You have so many different codes that aren't
even related, that I 'am not going to list them
You need a repair shop or dealer
You have air flow,couple oxygen sensor,cam sensor
speed sensor,real nightmere
I would look for something simple or some common
I have no idea where I would start on that
Obviously, I would have to road test & use the scan tool
to check data, but I think all those codes are squed somehow
eg: not doing you any good

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.

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:
