    Code P0501

    I'm getting code P0501 which is "Speed Sensor A/Range, Pergormance".

    Where is that located?

    P0501 - Vehicle Speed Sensor Range/Performance

    On the back of the transmission, that one I believe is on the output shaft.

    Is your speedometer still working? The speed correct? Go to an autozone and get the codes erased then see if it comes back.

    No, speedometer does not work when TC/ABS warning lights are lit. They go on an off from time to time.

    Yes this happened to my 1998 catera as well; fixed it myself:
    put the front-tires up on ramps, turn car off & lock emergency brake
    crawl approx. middle of the car- you'll see the drive column
    locate a deppressed area and look for a black wire attached to a sensor perched above the drive column- I think its a 10mm bolt head. Unloosen bolt-head and replace sensor. Start car- the speedo-neddle will return to normal.
