Congratulations on getting it to run like a champ.

The ABS light is likely due to a bad wheel speed sensor, which would be consistent with the speedometer coming and going.

Try to get an Actron Brakescan Tool for about $99 or so plus shipping, and you can scan the codes and get English explanations of which circuit is bad.

I purchased one to diagnose and repair a 1997 Cadillac Deville. The Actron Brakescan tool covers most American vehicles from 1996 to 2005. So, this diagnosis should be right up the alley of this tool.

One can go from there as far as checking out the sensors and the wiring more closely.

SOURCE: 2000 Continental. No problems at

I know you did research, but your find should reflect what is below, I would be looking for a frayed or broken wire. Somehow, either from age or possibly a small animal (I do not know where the car was parked) either ate through the line or coincidentally the vehicle speed sensor (VSS) gas failed. That is all this problem is pointing to. You could just replace the VSS, but I would first check the leads and make sure they are connected, not frayed or damaged.


u1039 - Network - Manufacturer Controlled DTC - Manufacturer Controlled - SCP (J1850) Invalid or Missing Data for Vehicle Speed- The PCM received a signal on the SCP bus that indicated Invalid or Missing Data from the vehicle speed sensor.

Basically this means that the vehicle's speed as read by the vehicle speed sensor (VSS) is not working properly.
Symptoms Symptoms of a P0500 DTC may include:

  • loss of anti-lock brakes
  • the "anti-lock" or "brake" warning lamps on the dash may be lit
  • the speedometer or odometer may not work properly (or at all)
  • your vehicle's RPM limiter may be decreased
  • the shifting of an automatic transmission may become erratic
  • other symptoms may also be present
Causes 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
Possible Solutions The simplest thing to do is to reset the code and see if it comes back.
Next, 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. Again, the exact procedure will depend on your make and model of vehicle.
If everything looks OK, replace the sensor.

Hello, This Code means the vehicle speed sensor is not putting out a signal to one of the components. The connector could be wet or corroded or the bad could just be bad.

Cadillac Escalade EXT 2007 steering was giving noise so we changed the bearing and fixed it but now I can see Stabilitrak warning light is on. I guess there's a steering sensor installed. Is it related to...


There is a steering sensor located at the base of the steering column. If the stabilitrak light is on, there should be a service engine or ABS light on. Have the codes checked and write them down as not to forget. Typically the code is set in the ABS system if the steering sensor is having an issue. However engine and transimission issues can cause the stabilitrak light to come on.

Good luck.

Popping sound in steering column


Worn steering column shaft coupler would be the common reason, only a trained front end specialists can diagnose this noise, most tire shops have them and in many cases they will do a preliminary diagnostic of the problem for free!

Oil on the engine and popping noise when turning


You dont state the engine size. A ny oil leak whether dripping on the floor or remaining on the engine should be investigated as there should NOT BE ANY WET OIL LEAK. Grime is another story and should be cleaned appropriately. The "popping " noise you're hearing turning slowly sounds likw a bad CV ( constant velocity ) joint on the front axle. There are 2 cv joints on each front axle. Possilble leaking boot throwing grease near the back of the front wheel to indicate which joint is noisy. Check the B/U light fuse. Hope this helps.
