Hello! Welcome to Just Answer. Please allow me to assist you. The P0500 code equates to a failure in the speed sensor circuit. This would be proven by your speedometer also being inoperative. The best path here would be to have the car professionally diagnosed (a scan only tells your the affected circuit, not what to do). Experience in this issue, with the conditions that you are experiencing, lead me to believe that you have either a failed speed sensor, a loose wire connection at the speed sensor or damage to the wires leading to the speed sensor (this would only be caused if you have rodents in the area that the car is parked at...Mice have a marked tendency to gnaw on these wires). Most likely, the speed sensor is faulty.
