VSS not working on 98 Taurus SE Wagon
I am having a problem with the vss on my 98 Taurus perhaps someone can suggest a fix.
We got a trouble code of P0500 indicating problems with the vss and the car had every indication that this was the problem. SO I went to the local parts store purchase the vss and replaced it and continued to have the same problem. So we thought maybe it was a faulty sensor, went back and exchanged it, same problem. SO I decided I would try and get one directly from the dealer, put it in, same problem.
I then thought maybe the turbine speed sensor, so I replace it, same problem. I then attempted to swap out the pcm with another one I picked up from the junk yard and that made it worse. So I replaced the pcm and I am back to square one - a 98 Taurus that will not shift properly and gives the P0500 code.
Can anyone suggest either a way of replacing the pcm ( short of the dealers $600 - $800.00 replacement cost ) or another way I might fix this problem.
I'm stumped on this one
