On my way home from Daytona Beach this weekend, driving down I-4, decided to set cruise, 150 mile trip. Cruise wouldn't turn on, tried several times, no go. After getting home I check codes on my Edge Evolution, it showed the po500 code - vehicle speed sensor error.
Well I went down to my local ford dealer and picked one up($36.00). The old one "looked" ok, but it was a cheap part. I replaced it anyway. I cleared the code, but it came back, and cruise still don't work. Truck runs and drives fine, no loss of power, trans shifts fine, speedometer works, just cruise don't work. My transmission fluid level is in the middle of the safe zone.
The wiring and harness looked and seemed to be in good shape. I didn't see any knicks or stressed points on wires or connector. I have returned the truck to stock on the programmer, but same results. Also the vehicle speed pid on my programmer shows 0 mph, even when traveling 60 mph.
Does anyone have any ideas on what might be going on here? Any info will be greatly appreciated.
