I have a1999 cougar the speed on stop working now the transmission will not shift in less you manual shift your self what could be the problem


The speedometer stopped working ? is this what you meant ? You probably have a bad VSS - vehicle speed sensor . The VSS is an input to the PCM - engine computer , besides being a signal for the speedometer it is used for shift control and other thing's .
Vehicle Speed Sensor The vehicle speed sensor (VSS) (Figure 43) is a variable reluctance or Hall-effect sensor that generates a waveform with a frequency that is proportional to the speed of the vehicle. If the vehicle is moving at a relatively low velocity, the sensor produces a signal with a low frequency. As the vehicle velocity increases, the sensor generates a signal with a higher frequency. The PCM uses the frequency signal generated by the VSS (and other inputs) to control such parameters as fuel injection, ignition control, transmission/transaxle shift scheduling and torque converter clutch scheduling. You could possibly have a DTC stored in the PCM.
P0500 - Vehicle Speed Sensor (VSS) Malfunction Indicates the powertrain control module (PCM) detected an error in the vehicle speed information. Vehicle speed data is received from either the vehicle speed sensor (VSS), transfer case speed sensor (TCSS), anti-lock brake system (ABS) control module, generic electronic module (GEM), or central timer module (CTM). If the engine rpm is above the torque converter stall speed (automatic transmission) and engine load is high, it can be inferred that the vehicle must be moving. If there is insufficient vehicle speed data input, a malfunction is indicated and a DTC is set. On most vehicle applications the malfunction indicator lamp (MIL) will be triggered when this DTC is set.
  • Open in VSS+/VSS- harness circuit.
  • Open in TCSS signal or TCSS signal return harness circuit.
  • Short to GND in VSS harness circuit.
  • Short to GND in TCSS harness circuit.
  • Short to PWR in VSS harness circuit.
  • Short to PWR in TCSS harness circuit.
  • Open or short in the vehicle speed circuit(s) (VSC) between the PCM and appropriate control module.
  • Damaged VSS or TCSS.
  • Damaged wheel speed sensors.
  • Damaged wheel speed sensor harness circuits.
  • Damage in module(s) connected to VSC/VSS circuit.
  • Damage drive mechanism for VSS or TCSS.
Diagnostic Aids: - Monitor VSS PID while driving vehicle. This DTC is set when the PCM detects a sudden loss of VSS signal over a period of time. If vehicle speed data is lost, check source of where vehicle speed signal originates. Note TCSS does not have a PID, circuitry frequency must be checked for sudden loss of sensor signal. P0501 - Vehicle Speed Sensor (VSS) Range/ Performance Indicates the powertrain control module (PCM) detected an error in the vehicle speed information. This DTC is set the same way as P0500, however the malfunction indicator lamp (MIL) is not triggered.
  • Refer to possible causes for P0500.
Refer to diagnostic aids for P0500.

99 camry wont shift Code P0500 speed sensor


The problem is a gear internal failure the gear who drive the speed sensor is defect the is why you don't have speed sensor reading. There is a way you can verify that remove the speed sensor drive it with a drill check the dashboard you will see.

This transmission is computer controlled and requires special testing and special equip to run those tests as well as training to understand the results of the testing. You will also need a factory service and repair manual for the transmission.

two things:

1. dont drive the car when engine light signaling....must be a error in engine
2. speed sensor is probably placed in wheeldrum or in gearbox.

I am getting a p0717 code, when i am driving and have to stop the car if i try to take off on drive it wont move, i have to shift it to a lower gear for it to move.


P0717 - Input/Turbine Speed Sensor Circuit No Signal.

P0717 code means that the computer isn't getting any signal from the sensor. Either the sensor is dead or there's a circuit issue (bad wiring, etc).

The computer wants to know if the transmission is working properly. So it reads the speed of the input shaft and compares it to the speed of the output shaft. It knows which gear you're in because it commanded the transmission to shift into that gear. So, with the input speed, the gear selection, and the output speed, the computer can calculate how efficiently the transmission is working. If the speed is off, it knows that something is slipping inside the transmission. It can then try to boost the fluid pressure to compensate. If that doesn't work, it sets a different trouble code.

Hope helps (remember to rate and comment this answer).

Purchased a 2002 Land Rover from a local Auction with 72k. The car was sandwiched between 2 cars and the damage was minimal.The SUV starts right up but could only go in reverse.The truck will move on...


I'm guessing that the gearbox speed sensor was damaged in the shunt, this can happen if the gearbox was in park when it happened - causes internal damage to quite a lot of components. The speed sensor tells the gearbox the speed of the input shaft and the transmission control computer then signals the gearbox to change gear accordingly. If this is damaged it could account for the symptoms. Suggest taking to a LR dealer for diagnosis, they should pick up any sensor faults with their plug in diagnosis tools. Whilst it will cost a bit, it will save you a lot of component changing and there are a lot of components to change on a Disco!

Trans wont shift up or down..gearbox fault light on


Hello jjames696...The gearbox fault light has come on because the transmission control module (TCM) has received a fault signal from one or both of the two trans. sensors....The Output Shaft Speed (OSS) Sensor and/or Turbine Shaft Speed (TSS) Sensor.The TCM has now defaulted to limp mode...A diagnostic scan needs to be run...An OBD II scanner will retrive a P1722 fault code, the only code in it's library for the ZF5HP24 transmission. The WDS / IDS will pull other codes not found in the standard OBDII library (dealer or good transmission shop)
When was the last time the transmission was serviced? Manual shifting will take it's toll on the fluid quickly.
The transmission is sealed, no dipstick (which i think is a bad idea) You can check the fluid level by removing a plug on the passenger side of the case, you should be able to touch the fluid with your finger. Jaguar fluid is VERY expensive, Mobil 1 synthetic will work and meets ESSO specs.
Personally...i would change fluid every 25-30k.
Hopefully all you have is a bad sensor or a stuck solenoid and no internal componet damage.
Good luck, hope this answers your question...please take time to rate my fixya reply.

Obtain a fault code from the obd plug, go from there. If there are no strange noises then control unit is faulty. Stupid thing- is the fluid level ok?
