I'm sorry you are having problems with your vehicle. I will try to help.I'm a full time mechanic and have been a mechanic for over 20 yrs and I work part-time here on JustAnswer to help you and others repair their own vehicles, and I get credited by your ratings.. So before leaving the site make sure and leave me a rating. You can still reply to me as many times as neeed, even after the rating.. I will need for you to be my hands and eyes since I'm not there.So the p0500 is a speed sensor code. Tell me did your speedometer drop to 0 and your transmission start shifting hard or bad? Most likely your speed sensor is bad.Also the p0836 is a 4wd circuit code. Most likely the encoder motor on the transfer case is bad.Would you mind telling me the year of your Chevy 2500?Thanks

I strive to provide 5 star service. If I have satisfactorily answered your question please rate it as such and hit submit. Doing so is the only way I get compensated for my time. Also it doesn't close the discussion so we will still be able to communicate if there are further questions.
