Santa Fe P0500 DTC

Discussion in 'Hyundai Santa Fe' started by Vic RR Garcia, Sep 18, 2010.

  1. Santa Fe 2003 LX 3.5L, intermittently getting P0500 (Vehicle speed
    sensor circuit malfunction), it drops the speedometer function for about
    30 to 50 seconds, then recovers it.
    Wheel speed sensors are clean, cables test OK, and there are not missing
    teeth on the wheel crowns.

    Two questions:

    Is there a third sensor (the two wheel sensors + a sensor on the
    transmission) ???
    I cannot find any, but TSB 04-40-019 seems to imply it (Mention VSS and
    WSS).

    Does anybody had the problem and know what the solution is ???

    Thanks for your time.

    The sensor on top of the differential provides vehicle speed
    information to the computers and the speedometer on the 3.5. As you
    lose function for only a short period, I'd suspect the plastic gear
    attached to the sensor rather than the sensor itself. You can remove
    the 10mm bolt, pop it out the top and have a look. Usually I replace
    both at the same time because it's often difficult to tell which is
    the actual problem without trial and error.

  3. Thanks Hyundaitech, will take a look to try to locate it, if that
    fail, will order one, after seeing it should be fairly easy to locate.
