|P0500 2007 NISSAN SENTRA code description

When the sensor rotor rotates, the magnetic field changes. It converts the magnetic field changes to current signals (rectangular wave) and transmits them to the Anti-lock Brake System (ABS) Actuator and Electric Unit (Control Unit). The vehicle speed signal is sent to the combination meter from the ABS Actuator and Electric Unit (Control Unit) by Controlled Area Network (CAN) communication line. The combination meter then sends a signal to the Engine Control Module (ECM) by CAN communication line.
