2010 accent speed sensor A

Asked by Jun 20, 2017 at 03:32 PM about the 2010 Hyundai Accent

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Hey,

I have a 2010 accent 4door automatic. I have an
error code of P0501 speed sensor A. Trying to find
where it is located is proving to be quite difficult.
Does anyone know where speed sensor A is
located.  I do not have ABS so i dont think its in the
wheels? There are no noticeable symptoms that i
can see. Speedo works fine.

Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Its located on the back of the control arm at the hub.

First decent answer if gotten. Thanks alot. I recently had my bearing and breaks done on the front, check engine light came on a couple weeks after. Is this the only one? Ive done some reading and some have the sensors in the trans or behind the speedo? Would they be speed sensor b, c, d etc? I really appreciate this help your a lifesaver!

The code your getting indicates the one shown in the picture I posted. There are more speed sensors yes, but they would throw codes such as PO 717 which is the speed sensor input turbine inside the transmission. You can go to the Hyundai service website at www.hmaservice.com. They have shop manuals and you can put in the code and it will pull up information on it and where it is located at. I hope this helps a little more, Eric

Telling me i have to buy a subscription to use it, so i wont check there. But thanks a lot for the info.

Sorry the link I posted isn't working here. How is the car behaving? Is the transmission shifting ok, how does it run above 5klm/hr. The speed sensor can't be faulty on your car if the speedo is working. You may have a break on the speed signal wire leading to the engine

There arent really any noticeable problems. Only occasionally when im turning and accelerating out of the corner it doesnt give me all the power and feels a little sluggish. All instruments are working speedo and tac. How difficult is it to change the wire?

Are there any broken teeth on the ring gear that you can see? The P0500/P0501 is directly related to the right front wheel speed sensor (even though the DTC description says "Vehicle Speed Sensor malfunction"! ! !. If the vehicle does not have abs brakes, which your doesn't correct, then inspect the wiring and connector at the RF-WSS, if OK, then replace wheel speed sensor. I really hope this helps you out here since you have to buy a subscription.

No ABS correct. I havent had a chance to take anything apart yet so i dont know what shape the ring gear is in. Im hoping its a simple fix by just having to change the sensor/wire. Youve been very helpful ill update progress
