99 durango won't shift

Hi,

I have a 99 Durango 5.2. It won't shift out of first gear. There are two codes in the computer, P0500 and P0132. Neither of which have to do with this problem. We took it to a shop, they told us they have to drop the pan and change a sensor. Between 400 and 500. I don't have the money for this right now. The fluid is clean. Is this something we could do ourselves? Please help! Thanks!!!!

The P0500 code has everything to do with the shifting problem. If the Vehicle Speed Sensor is bad, it's not communicating with the PCM to tell it when to shift gears. The sensor is located on the tranny tail shaft on the drivers side. It has wires plugged into it and looks like a big white plastic nut about 1 1/4" in diameter. It's not that expensive and will be an easy fix if indeed that is the problem. I'd throw a few bucks at that first before I took it to the shop.

I thought 0500 was the code for the ABS sensor and 0720 was the code for output speed sensor. We haven't had a speedo since we bought the truck. You really think that could be it?

abs and speed sensor are together in the same thing on the rear axle

P0500 (M) No Vehicle Speed Sensor Signal No vehicle speed sensor signal detected during road load conditions.

The VSS sensor is on the tail shaft of the tranny and is probably the reason it won't shift out of first gear.

Correct, but there is another one on the tranny that has nothing to do with the ABS and tells the PCM the speed of the main shaft and when to shift gears.

SPEED SENSOR

DESCRIPTION
The speed sensor is located in the overdrive
gear case. The sensor is positioned over the
park gear and monitors transmission output shaft
rotating speed.


OPERATION
Speed sensor signals are triggered by the park
gear lugs as they rotate past the sensor pickup face.
Input signals from the sensor are sent to the transmission
control module for processing. Signals from
this sensor are shared with the powertrain control
module.
