Default Code P1500 Speed Sensor

Hi friends, I have a Kio Rio 2002 1.5L and the speedometer stopped working. I scanned it and showed Code 1500 Vehicle Speed Sensor. I replaced it with a new one but speedometer still does not work. Any other idea???

Thanks!!

Sounds like a short in the wiring or a bad speedo itself, may evenbe a bad TCM. More then likely it's the speedo. Check the wiring at the connector for broken wires or corrosion. Measure terminal voltage of transaxle control module at terminal #42. Should be battery voltage with the ignition on. If it is you have two options, the speedo or the tcm.

check for any blown fuses. There maybe a chance that your old speed sensor isnt bad, it could be the cluster. I had a 95 dodge neon and the speedo didnt work and I bought another one and replaced it. After that it worked great.

never under estimate the power of my RIO:cool:

Thank you both friends, I will check it out. There is another code coming out, it is P0740 Torque Converter Clutch Circuit Malfunction, but surprisingly, the tranny works very good, no stalls, no slips, it works great. I think this torque code should be a false alarm caused by the speed sensor code, something in the circuit should be wrong, I will check out the circuit and the speedo itself. Thank you!!

No prob. Well you could be rite about the PO740 having a connection with the speed sensor code. If you continue having trouble with the speed sensor or your speedometer does work, try replacing the entire cluster. Individual gauges can go out like that on a cluster. If you replace it write down the the mileage on both clusters before you put any more miles only because I dont know if the miles are saved in the ecu come place or in the cluster itselfs.
