My dear you have done all that is required and all you need do now is drive to a garage to run a scan, if there are no further code, it means the car is sound and let me inform you that some error signals does not go out even after being rectified but the light/ signal/ warning-light can be cancelled.

Let them turn the signal light out/ cancel it.

The car is perfectly fixed to my understanding and experience.

Cheers.

I am testing cam position sensor 01 KIA rio, positive and (grd) on the harness with ignition off is13.005 k ohms with ignition on is 12 to 14 v. The signal is 5v constant no fluctuations.


youll need to temp disable the ign coils to prevent starting , but u need to manually bump the engine to turn by starter then youll see 5v change from positive to ground with each rev of engine , but easiest way to test it is set volt meter for frequency and measure it with engine running (carefull!!!!) the frequency should change regularly with engine speed and not wildly jump around at set speed , if so it's bad !!!!!

I have a p0501 vss sensor error. I've replaced the part, but the engine light will not go off. it's been reset, but it comes right back on after 5 to 10 miles. I have a 2001 kia rio.


for the p0501,
Causes:
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.
hope help.

Turn off check engine light


Hi there... You can turn the check engine light off by disconnecting the battery for 1-2 minutes and then reconnecting it. The only thing is that if there is a problem, the check engine light will not turn off. Your best course of action for this is to take it somewhere like autozone and have the vehicle scanned for codes to find out what is wrong. When they scan it they can also erase the codes but then again if there is a problem the light will come back on until the problem is repaired. Have the vehicle scanned and post the codes. We can help you from there. Hope this helps you out
