    Speedo sensor is towards the bulkhead side of the box.... (back of the engine bay...)

    Your fault code equates to a 16885 code...
    16885/P0501/001281 - Ross-Tech Wiki

    Implausible signal fault is typically when the sensor values are out of bounds of what the ECU is expecting... normally indicative of a wiring fault or dying sensor...
