Q: Getting code P0500

asked by on

I am getting code P0500.

Hi there. The code you are getting is for a problem with the vehicle speed sensor. These commonly fail and will cause this code and cal also cause some drive ability issues. I would typically test the sensor and the wiring to the sensor before replacing it. The sensor tells the computer what the speed of the vehicle is. If you are looking to have this diagnosed and repaired, consider YourMechanic, as a certified mechanic can come to your home or office to take care of your car.
