Unhappy P1500 P062 VSS error codes

Symptoms:

Sporadic irregular shifting: Sometimes from a stop at an intersection truck will start off in 2nd or 3rd gear. Other times it's fine. Sometimes it will shift at wrong times while driving. Other times, shifts normal, no issues.

Speedo floating erratically: sometimes speedo will float and jump around. Other times no issues.

Engine codes: P1500 P062C Initial code thrown was P1500 and truck went into limp mode. After turning truck off and starting up a few minutes later truck would reset. This happened a few times over two weeks, and then P062C code thrown with P1500. Seems to be increasing in frequency.

History: Some hauling of horse trailer this past summer. Mostly loaded with hay and a few trips with horses but nothing of particular significance.

Truck ran fine all summer and into fall long after no further towing.

Symptoms showed up AFTER I jump started my battery on Mustang. Was completely flat (yup need a new battery). Noticed oddity when connecting jumper cables...horn on truck beeped whenever positive connected. Horn also honked on Mustang. Particularly odd to me was even after Mustang stopped honking, F150 would honk whenever contact with positive was made. Stopped honking after I left it in place.

Repairs/Diagnosis so far:

Changed oil in transmission (was discolored) but irregular shifts continued (which at first thought was gears slipping) I have a large cooler on tranny. No major overheating. ISSUE NOT RESOLVED.

Took to reputable driveline shop. They flushed transmission, changed filter, checked pan and cracked open filter to check for metal/debris. None found. They were unable to get truck to throw codes.
Driveline shop replaced VSS (rear of tranny) based on P1500 and P062C on it when I brought it in. ISSUE NOT RESOLVED. Threw codes within a couple hours.

Codes are now being thrown with more frequency.

Started truck up and original gauge cluster did not illuminate. Then heard repeated beeping. Error code flickered on gauge reading "Press reset for system check". Shut truck off. Waited for a couple of minutes. Started again with no issues.

Bought compatible Ford gauge cluster (in case it was a PSOM issue) Gauge cluster was plug and play. Works fine. ISSUE NOT RESOLVED.

Thoughts? Tips? Known issues? Repairs?

Thanks!

Just to be certain they changed the correct sensor....where is the OSS located on a 2007 F150?

4x4 2007 F150 5.4L and sorry should have asked where VSS is located. The sensor they changed was the OSS on rear of tranny.

The VSS should be in the rear differential. Should be a very similar sensor to the OSS they changed.

Sigh....changed that sensor but didn't fix the problem. Still throwing the same codes P1500 and P062C. Still randomly won't gear down when coming to a full stop which leaves me, from time to time, having to try and start off in 4th or 3rd gear. Wondering if I could have fried something in the electronics when I jump started my Mustang? Not sure if maybe if I swap out my alternator next? ��

Hate to say it, but you may have zapped the PCM. That's why I will NEVER give anyone a jump, I keep a charged jump box in the back of my truck.

I'd consider going to a dealer and ask about a PCM reflash.

Where is the VSS sensor responsible for the speedo located???

The spot it would be expected to be located is a blank port that isn't machined out on the top of the tail housing of the transfer case. NO VSS sensor there. Just two wires. One is a ground and the other is a mystery.

There is the VSS in your rear diff. There is also 2 speed sensors incorporated into into your ABS system. I don't know if they all work together to make the speedometer work,...but all 3 of them combined are less then $100. Especially you if you do the work. Might be good to spend $100 and have the Ford dealership plug into your computer and check it.
