vehicle speed sensor

3 posts in this topic

so i'm tinkering with my other 05 cabrio,  trying to get in back on the road  (Glenn this is the one with the leather seats and low klm's that you told me to keep)

i replaced the front springs, cleaned and lubed the clutch actuator, changed the oil and took it for a spin around the neighborhood.

the engine runs excellent (except for bad glow plugs).

But....  the speedo is very erratic and i have a vehicle speed sensor code, also will not shift out of 1st.

do smarts have a VSS or does it work off the reluctor rings?

i know the rear reluctor are bad,  1 is actually missing all together.

the code is P0500.   and the usual ABS, brake and traction control dash lights are on.

If it was me I would replace the reluctors, clear the codes, and test drive to see what happens.
