I had the same problem with ABS light and speedometer, I was told that it is the transmission control module. It has not yet stopped shifting but I have had times where it just wont stay running. It will start and then stall. Hope this helps.

Hundai santa fe 2007, i got these scanner code P0501 P0731 P0733 check engine light,ABS and Brake lights are on when driving it sometimes dies when slowing down to make a turn or stop at stop sign.


code p 0501 refers to vehicle speed (VSS)--range /performance problem====causes wiring--speedometer---VSS sensor--CAN data bus
code p 0731 refers to gear 1--incorrerct ratio===causes --wiring -- TR sensor/switch--shift solenoids ---transmission mechanical fault
code p 0733 refers to gear 3 --incorrect ratio=== same causes as for p 0731 code
take the cehicle to an accredited transmission specialist shop as the problem is electronic and could ne a problem TCM, VSS or TR sensor, wiring or ECM unit

My ABS and Brake light goes on alot. Also sometimes my gages will go up and down for no reason. That is what they call the GM shuffel. It happens to alot of GM vehicles.
I never had a problem with loosing power or the tranny stuck in second gear. Sounds electrical, if no one can help here, get that thing to a garage before your hurt.

TRANSMISSION


Fuse # 20 or 21 gets power through ignition. This fuse controls PRNDL indicator, speedometer, tach, & will cause transmission to not shift gears correctly. Ours took off in 3rd gear when put in Overdrive & only ran in 3rd gear. If we tried to manually shift thru gears (auto trans), it had 1st, 3rd, reverse. No 2nd or over drive. Replaced ignition. Fixed problem. Root problem was Electric motor that engaged 4 wheel low side was bad. Every time we used 4 Low side it threw power surge through ignition & blew ignition out. Good Luck.

Got the P0500 CEL code. Already replaced VSS, single-rev sensor and even tried replacing cluster unit. All with no solution. Symptom: Speedometer stays at 0 at first. Engine does not shift to 3rd gear


NO NO NO the VSS sensor has three wires 5 volt reference signal return and ground easy test is to check v-ref and ground. signal return must be tested by using ohm meter checking from computer plug to sensor one of the wires has open circuit this sensor is used to control transmission shifting also can you judge your speed better than the cops radar.

I cranked my 2000 dodge ram 1500 and the abs and brake indicators came on and the speedometer is not working but the truck is running fine.


Check fuses. The speedometer works off electronic signals, it is common for several indicators, like the brake light and abs signal to work off the same fuse. Check your owners manual for fuse panel location and fuse identification. Don't be surprised if you experience strange transmission shifting while this fuse is out as well. Without the speedometer signal the transmission doesn't know when to shift properly.
