Y Tim & Nahkapohjola , I have the same problem P0500 and P0600, and I need Help,
Did you replace your speed sensor or was it just a circuit problem.

Also I tried but could not find
the Instructions to verify the connections.

My Mechanic simply reads codes and replaces parts form Instruction manual,
Myself not sure if I really have to replace the speed sensor. How did you solve the problem. any suggestions appreciated.
