- 960 Transmission shift prob, blinking up arrow, code P0500
Just bought a used 1996 960 and it's started having a transmission shift problem. Sometimes when I drive, the transmission suddenly changes gears, usually downshifting, and seems to have a hard time staying in high gear (overdrive) with steady (slight) throttle. I get blinking UP arrow on dash, the blinking W S E lights, and Check Engine light. The code reader at Autozone gives code P0500 Speed Sensor. From what I can tell by searching the forums, the P0500 is many times treated as an ABS problem, but in my case, I don't have ABS light and my ABS works. Other threads seem to indicate P0500 is PNP switch on gear selector. But I don't have any problems getting the shifter out of Park and it seems to select lower gears (3 L) just fine.…
