If the check engine light is on you should have a code. Have you had it scanned for codes?
Was it toward the front or rear of the trans. There are 2 different ones.
I will opt out so another expert can help. Someone will be right with you.
Hello and welcome to just answer and allowing me to assist you.
The P0500 code is very common on the Toyota Tacoma, Toyota Yaris, Toyota Camry, Toyota Tundra, Toyota RAV-4. Before replacing the sensor you should try cleaning the sensor gear and erasing the code. If the light comes back you may have to replaced the sensor. Also if the trans was recently worked on the connector could have been left disconnected or loose. To gain access to this sensor you have to remove the air box and it sits on the top of the differential . Hope this helps you and if you require further assistance I'll be happy to do so.
the reason those other things are lite up is because when ever the ECU detects a problem it will disable those items for protection. hope this helps you and if you require any further assistance I'll be happy to do so.
here is a pic of the sensor.
there is one on the front diif as well that's senor 'A"
