SOURCE: abs light will not reset have replaced wheel sensor wires are good as i replaced speed sensor wires are good what next ??

Cluster warning lights

Whenever this warning light or any other stays on in the dash it is indicating that the systems control module (or the system sensor in the case of lights like low oil pressure, door open indicators etc.) has detected a fault, it then disables the system (this applies to ABS,TCS, TCM, SRS, TPMS, MIL, CEL and BCM faults and others) as long as the light is on. You must now have the dealer hook up a special electronic diagnostic tool and "scan" the system for the fault code that is stored for the problem(s)

How to fix code po500 on a 2001 ford ranger

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
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.
If everything looks OK, replace the sensor.

Chev s-10 Speedometer and odometer doesn't work. replaced Veh Spd Sensor, Service engine lite still on, Replaced Cluster still not working, Computer shows no VSS, and most sensors not ready after several...

Try this- pick the truck up off the ground high enough to safely keep the drive wheels from touching the ground. Get underneath the truck with a digital multimeter. Set your meter to Volts AC. Unplug the two-wire plug from your vehicle speed sensor, and connect the leads from your meter directly to the Vehicle Speed Sensor on the transmission. Have someone start the truck up and put it in drive, and carefully, slowly let their foot off the brake. Once the wheels start spinning, you should see an AC voltage reading at the sensor on your meter. The voltage will increase with speed, and decrease as the wheels slow down. If you've got that much, the sensor and reluctor ring in the transmission are okay, and you're going to need to find out why the wires aren't sending the signal from the VSS to the PCM. The best way to find a broken wire is to unplug the VSS connector and pcm connector, and ohm out (measure the resistance) the wires end to end to find out if there's a broken or shorted wire between the two components. If you aren't getting an AC voltage reading off the sensor with the wheels spinning, then you've either got a problem with the sensor, or an internal problem in the transmission with the reluctor ring missing, broken, or loose.

I have a 02 Accent with a p1529 code. NONE of my mechanics have any idea what this code is or my trans guys. This is my only code as I just replaced my output speed sensor and this one stupid code is...

The code is related to the right front wheel speed sensor . possibly a bad wheel speed sensor or broken wire or faulty connection may look behind the fender shield to inspect for broken or damaged wire or connector .... a good starting point

The speedometer will not work. We replace the wheel speed sensor and it still does not work. What else could be wrong?

you didn't state year or model but you said you replaced wheel speed sensor which is not correct the wheel speed sensors are for the antilock brakes and traction control

Your problem is with the vehicle speed sensor that on the transmission not on the wheels
or you might have a bad speedometer it self does the odometer work ? if the odometer works more than likely your problem is with the speedometer it self and not the speed sensor

Abs lit up on dash/ track control off/ resently repaired all brakes front and rear/ rear with new pads and rotors

most likely you have a bad wheel speed sensor or a broken wire to the wheel speed sensor. you will need it scanned to find out which sensor is acting up. if it is a broken wire it usually will be for a front wheel speed sensor from all the turning and it should be with in the first 6 inches or so from the sensor. to replace sensor you must replace front wheel bearing sensor assembly.

Hummin sound when turning to the left no trac light comes on and the brake pedal pushes back

You have a partially broken wiring harness to one of the front wheel speed sensors. As the wheels turn back and forth they tend to fatigue the harness and cause an intermittent brake in the wire , this makes the computer think that you have lost traction and triggers the ABS/Traction control system. You'll need to have the computer scanned for abs codes and figure out which sensor is showing as bad. If the problem is not bad enough yet, the code may not have stored. Either way, you will have to get an ohmmeter and carefully test the resistance of the speed sensor harnesses to find out where it is broken. An alternative is to just replace the wiring between the sensor and where it fastens to the frame. Any place that the wire has to move when the wheels are being steered is suspect.

Failed inspection cause of code P0501

P0501 Vehicle Speed Sensor Range/Performance. I believe Hyundai put their speed sensor on one of the front drive wheels, on the backing plate of the brake rotor. I suspect it to be the passenger wheel

You could possibly have a bad wheel speed sensor or broken wire or faulty connection triggering the code. The wiring and connections will run along your inner fender pannel
