SOURCE: transmission doesnt shift abs & brake light on speedometer doesnt work

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.

SOURCE: P0573 code on a 2005 Dodge ram hemi, replace speed

P0573 is for your brake switch stuck. It means you either have a bad brake switch, or a bad wire.

04 f150 heritage speedo moves but not over 10 mph and trans won't shift gears. i changed all sensors,traced all wires.


taking your vehicle to a qualified reair shop to have it diagnosed would be a good thing to do . You could not have traced all wires ! Because i'm sure you haven't any idea how this works . An a factory scan tool is a must to diagnose this .Do you know what ford SCP data network is ?
Speedometer
The instrument cluster receives the vehicle speed signal from the powertrain control module (PCM) over the standard corporate protocol (SCP) network and displays it on the speedometer gauge. If the instrument cluster receives no vehicle speed signal after one second, the speedometer defaults to 0.0 km/h (0.0 mph).

Vehicle Speed Sensor
The vehicle speed sensor (VSS) (Figure 52) 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.

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), the transfer case speed sensor (TCSS) or the anti-lock brake system (ABS) control module. If the engine RPM is above the torque converter stall speed (automatic transmission) and the 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) is triggered when this DTC is set.
  • Open in the VSS+/VSS- harness circuit.
  • Open in the TCSS signal or the TCSS signal return harness circuit.
  • Short to GND in the VSS harness circuit.
  • Short to GND in the TCSS harness circuit.
  • Short to PWR in the VSS harness circuit.
  • Short to PWR in the TCSS harness circuit.
  • Damaged drive mechanism for VSS or TCSS.
  • Damaged VSS or TCSS.
  • Damaged wheel speed sensors.
  • Damaged wheel speed sensor harness circuits.
  • Damage in the module(s) connected to the VSC/VSS circuit.
  • Open or short in the vehicle speed circuit VSS signal between the ABS VSS signal output and the VSS signal inputs to the PCM and other modules (Excursion and F-Super Duty).
Monitor the VSS PID while driving vehicle. This DTC is set when the PCM detects a sudden loss of vehicle speed signal over a period of time. If vehicle speed data is lost, check the source of where the vehicle speed input originates from: VSS, TCSS or ABS. Note: On some MSOF applications, VSS and TCSS PID can be monitor. However if no TCSS PID is available and VSS PID is zero, TCSS circuitry frequency must be checked for loss of sensor signal. If another vehicle electronic module has generated the P0500 and the vehicle does not receive its vehicle speed input from one of the above mention sources (VSS, TCSS or ABS). Check the PCM for Output Shaft Speed Sensor (OSS) DTCs. On OSS applications the PCM uses the OSS to calculated the vehicle speed. If no OSS DTCs are found check for correct PCM configuration. Check PCM configuration for correct tire size and axle ratio. 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. P0503 - Vehicle Speed Sensor (VSS) Intermittent Indicates poor or noisy VSS performance. Vehicle speed data is received from either the vehicle speed sensor (VSS), the transfer case speed sensor (TCSS), or the anti-lock brake system (ABS) control module.
  • Noisy VSS/TCSS input signal from the radio frequency interference / electro-magnetic interference (RFI/EMI) external sources, such as ignition components or the charging circuit.
  • Damaged VSS or driven gears.
  • Damaged TCSS.
  • Damaged wiring harness or connectors.
  • Malfunction in the module(s) or circuit connected to the VSS/TCSS circuit.
  • After market add-on.
Monitor the VSS PID while driving the vehicle. Check for intermittent vehicle speed indication. Verify the ignition and charging system are functioning correctly.

BMW X3 speedometer not working. code p0500 , p0503


code p 0500 and 503 both refer to the vehicle speed sensor(VSS)---circuit malfunction or intermittent/ errattic high input====causes wiring-=--VSS---ECM--wiring poor connection--other connected system---instrument panel---VSS---communication control module
to have the abs light on I would be checking the communication control module or the ECM

Fix speedometer cable


the vehicle speed sensor is most allways located on the tail shaft of transmision passenger side not to be confused with axle speed sensor (for ABS brakes) on the top of rear differential

but if your speedo don't work there is a tech serv bull on in dash speedo's for your model year , basicly it needs replaced
ck with your ford dealer it might be still under warrenty

Need help locating vss on trans for a 2000 F350 4X4 7.3 motor


1. Your ABS/ VSS can be removed and cleaned with just a clean rag, no need for wd-40 or any other solvent, also carefully clean out the hole on top of the differential, lift the vehicle (place in neutral) and check the sprocket wheel inside the pumpkin for possible missing teeth or to see if it is loose.

2. The VSS (part # F85F-9E731-AA) can also be tested with an ohms meter, it should measure ~1.9 K-ohm or higher (lower than 1.9 requires replacement).

3. The VSS is a hall-effect sensor, connect a volt meter to the sensor connector and wave a piece of metal (pair of pliers or flat metal) about a half inch away from the sensor, and you will consistently see a variation in voltage, if no movement on the volt meter is observed, replace the sensor.

4. You also have the two front wheel ABS sensors, try cleaning them first, and carefully reinstalling them.

5. When the VSS sensor is malfunctioning, the PCM may try to get input from the TSS (turbine speed sensor, top of the transmission), and as it turns out, the same return wire is used by the OSS (output speed sensor, tail end of transmission), check these two sensors also, clean them and test them (1.10 K-ohm or higher). These are also Hall Effect sensors, so check for voltage as described in paragraph 3 above.

6. Pay attention to see if your ABS light blinks when you start the vehicle, just before it stays solid. If this is happening, count the number of blinks, as this is actually a code and the blinking means the vehicle is trying to communicate with you.

7. Last, if nothing above corrected the problem, I would start tracing RFI (radio frequency interference), one sure area is usually your fuel pump (wires running along side VSS wiring. ABS/VSS wiring is routed directly to the ABS module.

I hope this information works for you.


There are two "speed sensors" though that can be confused at the parts store. They don't look the same but they are listed almost the same. The one on the rear diff is listed as the "ABS speed sensor"....the one on the tranny is listed as the "Speed sensor" The rear one is the cheapest and easiest to replace...about $12.

My 1996 S-10 Blazer will not shift sometimes and the ABS light comes on. This problem goes away after I drive it for awhile. The code I get is P0502 (vehicle speed sensor low imput). Would a bad speed...


A faulty VSS (Vehicle Speed Sensor) or related wiring can cause both of your problems, trans and ABS. If the computer doesn't know the vehicle is moving, then it won't shift the trans. If the ABS controller sees wheel speed, but not vehicle speed, it will turn on the ABS light. The VSS is located in the rear transfer case housing. But remember, it may be the VSS, related wiring, a faulty speedo buffer (usually located in the dashboard), ECM, or even the reluctor on the transfer case output shaft. You may want to have a shop scan "data stream", or even have them diagnose the problem.

For the 4R70W trans vehicles

Vehicle Speed Sensor (VSS)

The vehicle speed sensor (VSS) is model dependent. Possible sources of vehicle speed input are, anti-lock brake sensor (ABS), a gear-driven vehicle speed sensor (VSS), or the transmission output shaft speed (OSS) sensor. On 4x4 applications with a manual shift transfer case, the transfer case speed sensor is the source of vehicle speed. The VSS signal is either an AC signal whose frequency changes with vehicle speed, or an SCP data message depending on the source. Some vehicles have both. The vehicle speed signal is an input to various vehicle sub-systems such as the powertrain control module (PCM), instrument cluster (speedometer and odometer), speed control systems, etc. The vehicle speed source must be operational to enter output state control mode for diagnostics.

If you have a 4R100 trans, it is different.

Abs require service


The code is for the Vehicle Speed Signal (VSS). The VSS is produced by the ABS electronic control unit by averaging wheel speed sensor inputs and sending a digital signal via CAN bus to other modules that use the VSS. To test the ABS, a Volvo-compatible scan tool is necessary. If one is not available, the car should be sent to a Volvo dealer for ABS diagnosis. I can tell you however that most of the cars are fixed by replacing the ABS Control Module.
