ABS AND BAS ESP WARNING LIGHTS ON

2001 Mercedes Benz SLK320

Electrical problem
2001 Mercedes Benz SLK320 V8 Front Wheel Drive Manual 40000 miles

ABS, BAS ESP and cruse controle will not function.
EOBD code reader produces DTC P0500 fault code definition is " Vehicle speed sensor A Malfunction".
Please can you confirm:
a. Is the fault the ABS speed sensor.
b. If so how can I identify which one it is (rear L/R front L/R) that may be faulty.
c. Where is the electronics box situated that receives sensor outputs from the ABS sensors?

I would be grateful for any advice on this problem.
Many thanks in antisipation!
