Is this the speed sensor that affects the speedometer? I was told there is two speed sensors.
I have a 2001 volkswagen jetta gls with a 2.0 engine. I got a check engine light checked at autozone and was told it was error code p0501. It is supposively the vehicle speed sensor. I was also told by a friend there is two speed sensors. Which one affects the speedometer? Where is it located? and how does it look?
the 2 sensors that you are talking about does not pertain to your speedo at all those are for the reansmission ecm
the 2 pics i have sent is the sensor you need to check!!
the sensor is protected by a silver wrapping (heat shield)
it is under that
ok so these would be the ones that affect the speedometer, and are making my gas light blink everytime i accelerate?
the one you shouwed me earlier
yes correct !
now there is one other thing to consider
the mechanical drive that spins the sensor!!! it may be broken!!
how would i go about getting to the speed sensor?
the sensor unscrews
remove the air cleaner and tube to see better!!
now once you unscrew the sensor get that out of the way you will see the drive connection
you will see a little square in the middle
unscrew that and remove and check and make sure it is not broken

Thanks. I will accept the answer once i give it a shot and I no longer have any follow up questions.
Hello, I changed the speed sensor today and my speedometer still doesn't work. My ABS light came on as well. Is there anything else I can do?
how did the wires look ? were they green ? corroded ?
Thanks for your help. It was the spinning mechanism
glad you found the drive broken like i mentioned above!!
