Problem-speedometer not wkg-overdrive light flashing-transmission shifting rough. OBDII reading PO500. Changed ABS/VSS in rear end. OHMS reading is 1.76 //OHMS-on the VSS sensor in the rear end. 4.6 volt from the wire connecting to it. According to what I have researched the Ohms reading should be between 0.8 to 1.4. Needless to say I am still have the same problems listed above even after resetting the computer and disconnecting the battery. Do you have any suggestions? Thanks

Your code is for problem with wiring from PCM to VSS.
Either open or short if it passes both tests then PCM is fault. It is atest requiring a diagnostic scanner. Am trying to find another way for you to test. Do you have wiring diagrams? A digital volt Ohm Meter?
Try to have something for you soon.

O.K. Going to test VSs and RABS to eliminate or confirm problem. Ignition on engine off locate RABS DTC connector behind pass. Side kick panel. Connector has black/orange wire one side and red other. Pull connector apart take jumper wire from black/orange to ground. Yellow ABS warning light will flash these will be fault codes.
Short flash and long flash so it goes short short long = 3, short short short short long = 5.
If you get 16 system is good.
Let me know
Also locate PCM right rear engine compartment through firewall.
