New Member 2002 Jeep Liberty P0500 VSS code

Hi Folks,
Glad there is a forum for jeep owners to share information.
I just put a new motor in my stepdaughters 02 Liberty Sport. 3.7 liter 4x4 automatic.
Runs great, had to replace radiator afterwards probably because the old motor was putting too much pressure into the cooling system for too long.

Anyways, I had a P0500 code before the motor went bad and am just now getting around to it.
Same thing I've been reading .....speedometer flops around eratically for awhile then just dies.
I read about the E-brake cable rubbing on the VSS wires at the rear differential. Investigated and found a bad wire and a spot that had been repaired earlier by the previous owner so I repaired the wiring........ didn't fix problem so I replaced the connector, the switch and drained and inspected the differential. Also replaced the differential fluid.
All parts and connections are now fine.
Still have speedo problem and P0500 showed up again.

A couple guys at the parts store steered me toward the transmission sensors next. Anyone else have this proboem that can help me out?
This jeep does not have ABS.
looks like there are 4 sensors on the tranny. 2 on the left side (in and out?). 1 on the left top. 1 on the right side.
Thanks,
Bob

Re: New Member 2002 Jeep Liberty P0500 VSS code

That's great, thank you very much. I seem to be getting some conflicting opinions about this one. Do you mean the sensor IN the rear differential? Because there are no other sensors near there and no sensor near the wheels or brakes.
The sensor I replaced and re-wired is the one IN the rear differential and I'm about to go check my work............
anyone else have an opinion?
thanks

Yeah, thanks again.
This is a 2002 Jeep Liberty sport 4x4 with a 3.7 liter V6 226 cu inch engine and no ABS.
I see the part from your picture (rear transfer case?)on my car and there is no sensor there.
Aside from the sensors on the tranny, the only other sensor I see is on top of the rear differential. It's a magnetic sensor that sticks through the top of the"pumpkin" and picks up the teeth on the gear inside as it turns.
Is this the vss and the cause of my speedomoter problems? I've already replaced it and the plug and about 6" of the wiring.
Also, can you tell me where the other end of these wires are? I followed the bundle up into the floor of the vehicle but have no idea which side they come out on or where they plug in.
There are two modules up front (one right and one left) and I have no idea where the VSS wires go.
Anyone?
