    Bring it over and I'll show you but it is normally on the transmission
    and the Auto zone web site may be as specific as your request. Type in
    speed sensor and find part location. I ain'tgoing to do fit or you. You
    learn how or go to your local library and check out a service manual.

It is in the end of the transmission on the top. Look where the passenger side CV shaft comes out and look back toward the drivers side from there. It is on top tucked under the rear exhaust manifold.

Mercury sable code P0500 P

Basically this means that the vehicle's speed as read by the Vehicle Speed Sensor (VSS) is not working properly.

Symptoms of a P0500 DTC may include:
* 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 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 wil depend on your make and model of vehicle.

If everything looks OK, replace the sensor.

Hope this helps (remember to rate this answer).
