01 Hyundai Elantra CEL Sign In

I have a 2001 Hyundai Elantra I bought used about 2 years ago. It has 190k miles on it and a couple months ago i got the two front axles replaced at Kauffman tire. After about 4 blocks of driving home my check engine light came on. I took it to autozone and it read the codes p1529, p0501, p0500, u1400. Apparently its a transmission issue? I tried resetting the light and it popped back on. At first it drove fine, but now i notice it has a hard time getting into 2nd and 3rd gear. the rpm goes up before it shifts and it doesn't shift on time. I can make it shift less rough if i let off the gas right before it shifts. I have no idea what I'm doing when it comes to cars, so some advice on what to have a mechanic look at? Also, how urgent is this issue? Don't really have the funds to fix it right now... maybe in like 2 months. I use it 4 times a week to commute to school.

I am completely baffled as to why you didn't bring it right back to the guy that put the axles in. It sounds like he messed up the Vehicle Speed sensor.

I did take it back to Kauffman, they said they didn't see any issues with the car and made it seem like they couldnt do anything about it.

They didn't have anybody qualified to even find the issue, but I'll bet they caused it.

So if i take it back in any tips on what to say to fight my case? If its something i can convince them they messed up then they have to fix, but i dont know much about the problem or how to handle it when i go in to get them to admit accountability

Oh OK, I misread it. Yes, bring it back to them and tell them the problem started when they repaired the axles and you believe they did something to the speed sensor in the process.

General Description

The Wheel Speed Sensor (WSS) generates a waveform with a frequency proportional to the speed of the vehicle. The signal generated by the WSS informs the PCM not only if the vehicle speed is low or high but also if the vehicle is or is not moving. The PCM uses this signal to control the fuel injection, ignition timing, transaxle shift scheduling and torque converter clutch scheduling. The WSS signal is also used to detect rough road conditions

Probably damaged the sensor or wiring or there is something goofy with the tone ring on the axle. Definitely something they did. I don't understand some of these shops when it comes to quality of their work. Do they install the part and then park it out front without test driving and verifying there are no problems? Part of repairing a problem is validating the repair. I guess they are too lazy to care about their reputation.
