The check engine light is on & the code reader gave me a P0500, which indicates an issue with a speed sensor.

1st guess would be the VSS down at the back of the transmission.

Pretty inexpensive, easy to replace.

Do you have a flashing OD OFF light, or check engine light turned on?

If not, your speedometer is dead.

Check all of your fuses, as there are 3 which protect the instrument cluster.

You could clear the code with a scanner, or if you unhook the battery for about 10-15 mins IIRC it should clear the code.

Don't clear codes. That deletes information that could be helpful, especially if you recruit someone else to help. It also resets counters that could trip a DTC that would help you diagnose the problem (some problems have to be encountered a minimum number of times to set a DTC).

With an OBDII reader and Forscan, you can see the speed from each individual sensor. Could help you determine which one to look into. The issue may be wiring, not the sensor itself.

That is normally due to a bad connection somewhere in the clock spring.

Replacing the clock spring should fix this code. It is not as difficult as it sounds.

Just make sure when you begin, the steering wheel is centered, and do not move the steering wheel during replacement.

There are several you tube videos covering this.
