DTC P0501 VEHICLE SPEED SENSOR A RANGE/PERFORMANCE
The Wheel Speed Sensor (WSS) generates a waveform with a frequency proportional to the speed of the vehicle. The signal generated by the WSS informs the ECM not only if the vehicle speed is low or high but also if the vehicle is or is not moving. The ECM uses this signal to control the fuel injection, ignition timing, transaxle shift scheduling and torque converter clutch scheduling. The WSS signal is also used to detect rough road conditions.
Front wheel speed sensors cost $95 each OEM Dealer
Rear sensors cost $150 each OEM dealer
Fronts labor time is 30 minutes to do both sides
