Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I have noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.

Is the ABS light also coming on or are you just dealing with the codes you have listed?

The code P0500 indicates you have a speed sensor concern and or the circuit to it. Since you have replaced the VSS then I would next check the circuit. I have enclosed the steps in the link below. Copy and paste the link to your browser to open and view them.

The code P1507 indicates a problem with the idle air control valve. I have also enclosed test steps for it as well.
