I have a 1998 dodge caravan 3.3L fault codes p0500 p0700 p0720 p0715, how do I repair and replace sensors to pass smog test


Follow the links for each fault code.
http://www.obd-codes.com/p0500
P0700 Transmission Control System Malfunction
P0720 Output Speed Sensor Circuit Malfunction
P0715 sets when there is an error in the transmission's input speed sensor signal. On the front of the trans there is an input and output speed sensor that the trans controller looks at for shifting control.

While the code could have set because of a wiring or connection problem, it's almost surely the sensor. Input speed sensor failures are not uncommon.

The input speed sensor is mounted right on the front of the trans directly under where the cooler lines attach. It threads directly in and has a 1" hex for a socket for removal. If the wiring and connection look visibly ok then I would recommend replacing the sensor

Mitsubishi colt fault code


code p0500 refers to vehicle speed (VSS) -circuit malfunction===causes wiring ---VSS---ECM
replace the VSS
I do not have the other codes available but from your description of the faults and the fact that the VSS is involved I suspect that the other codes will refer to a TCM problem

I have a Suzuki Sx4 2008, the engine light is on and the problem code is P-0500, I just replaced the left-front bearing 2 days ago, and also the ABS light is on, could tell me what the problem is and how I...


P0500 is a problem with the vehicle speed sensor. The ABS light on is also caused by this P0500 code.

Get the vehicle speed sensor checked, see if the wiring is causing the problem (frayed). If there is no problem with wiring, try replacing the vehicle speed sensor.

Would not shift in to drive or reverse then lights interior flash


According to the fault code, there is no signal from the vehicle speed sensor to the OBD computer. A P1491 code is the radiator fan control circuit. I sounds like you may have an electrical problem that is causing a bunch of false readings. Have the computer reset and try again.

2005 ToyotaCamry fault code P0500 Vehicle Speed sensor Malfuction


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. .
