The PCM compares a number of sensors to determin its fuel strategies, the VSS is amoung those sensors. The FICM code may be related to this. Sorry I don,t have access to ISIS to tell exactly what the codes are.

New info

PO500
Mechanical drive mechanism for the VSS is damaged
VSS (+) or (-) signal circuit is open, shorted to ground or power
VSS is damaged or it has failed
PCM has failed
TSB 01-21-13 contains a repair procedure for this code

Po611
FICM is damaged or it has failed. Replace the FICM and then retest the system for trouble codes.
PCM has failed
Before I replaced the FICM or PCM I would recomend checking the wire harness and plug-ins for problems.

Make sure batteries are good. Bad batteries can cause FICM failure because there isn't proper volts going to it. Had my FICM go and found out had one bad battery.
