I believe that is a vehicle speed sensor code, not 100% sure though.

I just threw a p0500 a couple days ago when I took off the comp to send it in for an upgrade. It is a Veh. speed sensor code. I took the truck to Advance and had them pull the codes then clear them. The 0500 went away and I got a 0216 and 0237 along with the 1693. Ouch. It's not looking good for the vp44.

It can affect the speedometer but not always. It can also affect shift points and fueling to the truck without any visible problems with the speedo. It is supposed to be a pretty easy code to clear. Clean your vss connection and make sure it is connected completely. Then go have the codes cleared.
