Actually, everything you described sounds like either you got a bad VSS or the wiring to and from the sensor is damaged. Check where it connects to make sure the pins are in good shape and not corroded or damaged. Also, check the wiring to make sure it isn't damaged. If the computer is coming up with the same code, I'm confident that it is one of the items I mentioned.
