I have a 1998 Subaru Outback with 295k miles.  The speedometer has been slowly failing... at first just hopping a little, now it rarely moves from 0.  After driving with the speedometer and odometer not working for a bit it started throwing codes P0500 P1507 P1540 and occasionally the AT Oil Temp light will flash for awhile after starting the car.  


Codes point to Vehicle speed sensor 2.  could the failure of that sensor cause the the issues I am having?  Any diagrams available of where VSS1 and VSS2 are located?

Update - I replaced Vehicle Speed Sensor 2 and all my problems went away.  No codes and speedo and odo are working fine now.  Put 1k miles on it over the weekend and its running great!
