Code 500 is for a problem with the speed sensor or the circuit. But it could also be something mechanical inside the transmission. The signal the engine computer is getting from the sensor is out of normal range for the condition.

I failed inspection because of code 500. If I replace my sensors will that automatically cure the problem? It also failed for code 734 which I have no clue what that means...

PO500 First off if you have replaced your tires with an incorrect size then that is your problem. If not the PO500 possibly means the Vehicle Speed Sensor (VSS) may be bad or the wiring is frayed or loose. I would reset the code and see if it comes back while at the same time inspecting all the wiring. PO734 Transmission 4th gear slipping. This may be why you have code PO500. You need to immediately seek out a transmission expert and have this looked into before the transmission is toast.
