P0502 GMC - Vehicle Speed Sensor Circuit Low Input.... Possible causes; Faulty Vehicle Speed Sensor, Vehicle speed sensor harness or connectors is open or shorted, Vehicle speed sensor circuit poor electrical connection, Faulty Powertrain Control Module (PCM)......Description, The Vehicle Speed Sensor (VSS) assembly provides vehicle speed information to the Powertrain Control Module (PCM).

The PCM uses the vehicle speed signal to determine shift timing and torque converter clutch (TCC) scheduling. Vehicle Speed Sensor Location Example:
