Question about 2002 Toyota Camry

Camry 2002 speed sensor

"Engine revs like it shifted into neutral speedometer drops to zero and bounces between zero and fourty and Tac osscilates, This goes on for about 20 seconds then everything operates normal. Engine light eventially resets itself and works fine for a couple of days then engine light comes on and above mentioned problems repeat, Checked engine light code while it was on and got P500 ( Speed Sensor Malfunction ) this is a 2002 Toyota Camery 4 cylinder with 95,000 Miles, should I just change the speed sensor since the problem is too intermittent to nail down."

I'm having the same problem with my 2002 Camry but i've been driving on this condition for a couple months. What long term damage can this cause? Also, Good year is trying to charge me about 500 dollars to get this problem fixed. Is that a normal price for this repair?

My 2002 dodge durango hits 4000 RPMs and bounces between 3000 and 4000 RPMs when I am in park and have the throttle held down. I replaced the cam sensor and it is still doing it.


this is your rev limiter stopping you from over reving engine causing internal damage. this is normal on all new vehicles. Don't know what year they started this but it goes back at least 16 yrs

Was driving down the road and the tac started jumping then dropped to zero then the speedometer dropped aswell got freaked and parked it but neither gauge is working at the moment and i am not sure whats...


The two gauges work off two different sensors. The tac runs off the crank sensor. the speedometer runs off the speed sensor. Since your car still runs..ie the crank sensor is still good. I would guess that your Instrument panel has shorted. This is just a guess because there are other factors, like wiring that would have to be checked. It is still safe to drive, just watch how fast you are going compared to traffic.

If the unit is bouncing quite eratically, this is an indication of a gear/motor issue in the speedometer itself. There are places that repair these but are few and far between. Check out Silverstar Porsche/Mercedes auto recycling in CA. Great service and resonable on prices and will ship. Replace the speedometer.

96 Ford Taurus Speedometer Drops to Zero


have the fault codes read
the speedo gets its signal from the VSS ( vehicle speed sensor) and that sensor also reports to the transmission control module
So check for a problem in that area
