P0500 code

Guys, today I was trying to check fuses because my 4wd will not engage. Everything looked ok and I had to meet the wife for dinner so I put covers back on and took off. All of a sudden I have abs light on and no speedo. No clue where to start on this one. My truck is 06 f250 Tuscany with 93k miles. All of a sudden things are falling apart. Help.

Its on the rear differential, Check the resistance. Should be 800-1800 ohms

P0500 - Vehicle Speed Sensor A Description: Indicates the powertrain control module (PCM) detected an error in the vehicle speed
information.
Possible Causes: • Open in the VSS harness circuit
• Short to GND in the VSS harness circuit
• Short to PWR in the VSS harness circuit
• Damaged wheel speed sensors
• Damaged wheel speed sensor harness circuits
• Damaged ABS module
• Damaged PCM
Diagnostic Aids: Monitor the VSS PID while driving the vehicle. This DTC is set when the PCM detects a
sudden loss of vehicle speed signal over a period of time. If vehicle speed data is lost, check
the source of the vehicle speed input.

Will do. Just weird that it happens as soon as I check fuses for the 4wd. 4wd stops working, #4 injector is going out, and now this. Get this thing paid off and then it starts falling apart.

I know the feeling, but I have to remind myself that nothing lasts forever. I love my truck, it was the worst 3 weeks waiting to get my studs and oem gaskets done.

I just need to take some time and start tracking down these issues.

I saw someone mention to remove both negatives from the batts and reset the system but I have a custom tune so I would be worried about that.

Removing the battery cables will have no effect on custom tuning.

Removed battery cables this weekend. No change! Finally found my voltmeter to check the ohm and viola - nothing! Looks like the sensor went bad.

Now to replace - Does anyone have the item number for that sensor? I have seen sensors from $20 to $120 but none say they are the right number?

Per an online search i found F85Z-2L373-AB. Is that correct? are there any others to cross reference?

Thanks all

This should be the correct part number. (DY-998 Vehicle Build Date before: 12/4/2005),
(DY-1073 Vehicle Build Date after: 12/5/2005). I'm thinking that the DY-1073 replaced the DY-998.
