you will have to check wiring between sensor and PSOM module- (programable speedometer odometer module

you may have broke or corroded wire

look for wire colors I gave you and check those wires first around the area where work was done.

Code is P0500. Iwill spend sometime crawling around on ground tracing those wires then. thnak you much....so for sure there is no sensor on transmission..

yes, still getting code and truck still driving the same

verify wire colors, VSS- vehicle speed sensor is located on rear axle housing.

Pavlin Koev :

check as much as you can, grab and pull hard on the wires if it is broken it will move

if you do not find the problem around rear axle, let me know.
