My speedometer stop working what can i do to fix it


Causes...............

Faulty Vehicle Speed Sensor
- Vehicle speed sensor harness or connectors is open or shorted
- Vehicle speed sensor circuit poor electrical connection
- Faulty Engine Control Module (ECM)




The P0500 code is very common on the Toyota Tacoma, Toyota Yaris, Toyota Camry, Toyota Tundra, Toyota RAV-4. Before replacing the sensor you should try cleaning the sensor gear and erasing the code. If the light comes back you may have to replace the sensor.

2005 toyota camry speed sensor a


After doing a little research (I own a couple of pretty decent scanning tools and have become familiar with how they function)




Without knowing the actual code for the error there is no way of telling exactly what it's showing as the error. The Code is the PXXXX part of the error that the scanner will detect. There are a number of errors that will make the check engine light come on like that, some are as easy as making sure your gas cap is on tight. Others may show the same exact Gas cap code but for a malfunctioning Evap system. So the codes may be interpreted in many different ways, sometimes they will actually mislead you into buying parts that are not needed.
But fist you need to know the exact number of the code and not the name given to it. Then the circumstances when it happens (as you have already stated), Any effects that it might have on your car as far as how is runs or drives since the code has been showing. Also think back to anything that was touched prior to the codes showing, even filling up with gas, checking you oil etc. These will be places to look for a loose wire or possible connection with the time frame of when it all started.
This is the closest answer I could find:
Vehicle Speed Sensor "A" Circuit Low Input
What does this mean? OBD Code P0502refers to
The vehicle speed sensor outputs a 4 pulse signal for every revolution of the rotor shaft, which is rotated by the transmission output shaft via the driven gear. After this signal is converted into a more precise rectangular waveform by the waveform shaping circuit inside the combination meter, it is then transmitted to the ECM. The ECM determines the vehicle speed based on the frequency of these pulse signals.
Symptoms Possible sumptoms of OBD code P0502
- Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light) - Speedometer may not work properly - Transmission shifting problem
Causes Possible causes of OBD code P0502
- Vehicle speed sensor harness or connectors is open or shorted - Vehicle speed sensor - Combination meter - Faulty ECM. The Error code is generally activated on detection of the following conditions: The signal sent by the vehicle speed sensor to ECM is too low.
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
*You can use this to try to figure out what may be part of the problem but remember that the codes don't always point to the actual problems. They just let you know that while performing a test that test either failed or could not be completed with a good result. There could be numerous other things that can interfere with a test.

2002 CAMRY LE automatic transmission. CHECK ENGINE LIGHT WITH P0500 CODE comes on intermittently. Can feel a small **** when speed hits 10 mph and then at 20 mph. Took to a service station and mechanic...


for the p0500, the solution:
The simplest thing to do is to reset the code and see if it comes back.
i know this tool is helpful for your car.
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 wil depend on your make and model of vehicle.
If everything looks OK, replace the sensor.

O/d light blinks when driveing o/d seems to be engaged car has 198000 miles and runs very good also engine light is on


O/D light blinks, but with that the check engine light is ON.--- This will make your troubleshooting easier.When the check engine light comes on, and remains on, this indicates that there is error stored in your cars computer.---- Once the computer is scanned, you will get error codes, as per that error code it will point towards faulty part, which is causing the O/D light to blink.-------- Most probably the O/D light blinks, If a problem exists in No. 1 or No. 2 solenoids or speed sensors .
--------------- For car after 1995 it requires OBD2 tool and for car before 1995 it requires OBD1 tool.------- --------- You car will require OBD1 tool.There are very few auto parts store and repair centers who have OBD1 tool.In your case you required OBD1 tool.------ You can just contact local auto-parts store and they will guide you to the nearest store who has OBD1 tool.There you can get your car scanned.If there is error set in your cars computer, then you will receive the error code.As per error code it will point towards the faulty part causing this problem in your car.------------- -------------- The codes which you get is scanning will be mostly any of this following codes:--- DTC P0500 - Vehicle Speed Sensor Malfunction
. DTC P0750 - Shift Solenoid "A" Malfunction
. DTC P0753 - Shift Solenoid "A" Electrical Malfunction
. DTC P0755 - Shift Solenoid "B" Malfunction
. DTC P0758 - Shift Solenoid "B" Electrical Malfunction
. DTC P0770 - Shift Solenoid "E" (SL) Malfunction
. DTC P0773 - Shift Solenoid "E" (SL) Electrical Malfunction
. DTC P1520 - Stop Light Switch Signal Malfunction
. DTC P1705 - Direct Clutch Speed Sensor Circuit Malfunction
. DTC P1765 - Shift Solenoid Valve SLN Circuit Malfunction
. DTC P1780 - Park/Neutral Position Switch Malfunction
--------------- Now it all depends on what code you get, as per that you can replace the following part.------- This will help.Thanks.Helpmech.

2003 Toyota Camry Se V6 has a check engine light after failing smog check test by Fault Code P0500. Unsure why it failed just had some transmission & engine work done at the dealership a couple of...


I had the same problem, then took my car to an expert repair shop who diagnosed the sensors and
found no problem with the car. They notified the DMV who was unaware of the problem, who then told the repair shop (John's Bascom Automotive) that they will adjust their computer system to allow a "two speed idle test". My bill was $95 and I still have to pay for a smog test after driving around for
a couple of days to clear the computer monitors, a fair amount and I gladly paid it.

John advised me that I'd get no satisfaction with Toyota or the DMV. I went to the dealership where I
bought the car and they said that the smog stations don't know what they're doing. They charge
about $100 and work around the P0500 code but it takes them about two hours to do this. I told
them that I should have been notified about the dyno none-compatability by Toyota and that Toyota
should have notified the DMV beforehand. I wonder how many speed sensors are being replaced by
unknowing smog shops around the state. I got Toyota's main customer support phone number and
will call them Monday. I'm going to get my pound of flesh ($95 worth) from the DMV next week also.

They are not the sensors you want. The car uses the abs wheel sensors for vehicle speed. Your problem lies in the abs system , possibly the left front sensor, abs ecu or speedo cluster, Clear the code and see if it stay out otherwise you'll need to go to a trusted technician. .
