HI,

I am sorry that you have not been helped yet. I just came online and saw your question

When you say transmission service done, do you mean fluid replacement, or a repair done as well?

Does your scan tool communicate with the tcm but not complete the relearn procedure, or does it not communicate with the tcm at all?

Please remember that I am not there to inspect it or test it, therefore I rely on you to provide as much detail as possible, thanks

Transmission Mechanic: ebrock63, Repair shop manager and tech replied 2 years ago

HI,

P0500 on this vehicle is for the speed sensor at the rear of the transmission which is the output speed sensor.(see attached)
