P0236, P0500... Update: New VSS still throwing P0500

My truck's threw me a P0236 code. The code apparently means "Turbo Boost Sensor A Circuit Performance". What problems should be evident based on this? How do I fix it? I haven't noticed any turbo-related problems. I'm going to clear the codes and drive it and see if the issue is resolved, or what.

The other code is P0500, which is "Vehicle Speed Sensor Malfunction". I thought I got all those issues taken care of, because I recently replaced the VSS. This could be the root cause of my transmission troubles. Like I said, I'm going to clear the codes and see what happens. What brand VSS do you guys recommend that won't give me any problems? I'm not having any luck.

Ford for the VSS, don't know what to tell ya about the 0236. Where did you get the VSS before?

I went through four or five BWD brand sensors from Advance, and then got a Dorman brand sensor from RockAuto, which is still in it.

P0500 must have been the code it was throwing when it went into limp mode the last couple of times, which means that the transmission problems must be simply due to the VSS. In my line of thinking, I had eliminated that as a possibility, since I had already got it straightened out.

Oh well, the computer's telling me that was the problem, but I reset the codes and drove, and now my truck's only throwing the P1111, which is the "No Problems/All Clear" signal. I'll drive it until the transmission messes up again, at which point I'll order a Motorcraft Vehicle Speed Sensor. No more cheap parts for me.

I still don't know what to think about the P0236, but it's not there since I cleared the computer. We'll see, I guess.

I still want to do a manual transmission swap, but it's not nearly as urgent now.

On the p0236 check the hose to the intake from the MAP sensor. Look for holes in the hose or it could be clogged. R&R if necessary.

Where's the MAP sensor located?

By the way, I drove it to and from my friends house, which is a pretty good drive. When I got to his house, it was still P1111, and when I got home it was P1111. All clear for now, I guess. I still want to look into the P0236, though.

Passenger side firewall up high. Follow the rubber hose from the intake.

Thank you. I'll take a look tomorrow. I tried to rep you, but you know how that goes.

Edit: Just ordered a VSS from the Ford dealership. I'm going to pick it up tomorrow.

You guys might find this interesting.

Okay, so I got a call this morning, and it was the dealership that I ordered that VSS from. He said that the part number that I gave him, which was the one in the "PSD Part Numbers" thread (F85Z-2L373-AB), was not a current part number. He said that that was the old VSS number, and they've updated the part and/or part number. This carried the retail price from $18ish to $40ish. The new, updated part number that he gave me is F85Z-9E731-AB. Perhaps an edit to the part number thread is in order. I didn't go ahead with the purchase, because I think I may be able to find a Motorcraft sensor less expensive elsewhere.

So, what is the difference, if any, between the new and old VSS?

I haven't had a chance to check the hose from the intake to the MAP sensor yet. I may get on that tomorrow morning, but probably not...

By the way, I try to rep everyone who participates in any of my threads, but most of the time, it won't let me.

Nobody's got any ideas about the difference in the VSS part numbers?

(this is a bump )

I would think none. Part number F85Z2L373AB was superseded by part number F85Z9E731AB. From partsguyed.com.

Part numbers change from time to time. Nothing to be concerned about.

Oh, okay. Understood. Why would that make the price go up, though?

They are about 22 bucks from Ed. Plus shipping. At the dealer you never know. If you have a part number check Ed's site first for a price. Or Tousley and silverstate also. Most are the Ford parts sites will have slightly different prices. Going to a near to you dealer the price is likely going to be higher. Unless you know somebody there.

I already ordered one from Ed, I was just wondering if there were any differences that would justify the increased expense at the dealer.

Thank you for straightening me out on that.

IN my experience price changes either reflect a new supplier for the parts or a decrease in stockpile of the part before Ford obsoletes the part from their system.
