PCM DTC P0500...Where is the VSS?

Hey All,

Checked my Insight the other day for trouble codes and saw that I had a P0500 code. The description of this fault code is Vehicle Speed Sensor Malfunction. Where is this sensor located on the truck? I would like to check it and make sure the connection is good as the first step to diagnosing this problem.

Thanks in advance for any help.

before you just replace the sensor they are known to brake the wires either at the sensor or where the wire meats the frame. also if all that is good make sure before you replace sensor make sure the toothed ring is not damaged by moving the driveshaft and inspecting the teeth!

Thanks for the information, all good things to know. First thing I'll do is put it on the jack stands and spin the rear wheels to see if the abs tone ring is cracked or broken while I'm under there to check the wiring.
