Is the ABS light on the dash? P0500 MERCURY - Vehicle Speed Sensor 'A'...Possible causes; Faulty Vehicle Speed Sensor, Vehicle speed sensor harness or connectors is open or shorted, Vehicle speed sensor circuit poor electrical connection, Faulty Engine Control Module (ECM)......

I have no warning lights on my dash.. I have recently replaced starter egr valvle gasket and the right rear wheel cylinder could any of these repairs damage my vss?


The reason I asked is because there are wheel speed sensors, so with no warning on the dash, ABS light, this has to do with the transmission. Your best bet is to take it to a transmission shop for proper diagnosis. It could be just a shift solenoid or something electrical with the over drive.
