Ok, so the car ran fine pre- Covid. Then it sat for 2 mos. and battery drained. I charged the battery and now I have 2 codes. Speedo doesn't work, steering light is on, transmission shifts like its retarded. won't manual shift (automatic) and it won't turn off when you push the ignition. I have to push it several times then it shuts off. I bought a VSS sensor and replaced it and issues cleared for about 2 blocks. Then they all came back again. The electric steering was replaced 4 yrs ago with a new OEM part. I don't know where else to start?
Anyone have any issues like this?

A major fault is causing your ECU to go into limp mode.
What codes are you getting? I replaced a VSS sensor in a GM vehicle about 2 months ago and had issues recur after about 10 minutes driving- the original VSS was good but the trip computer was not processing the signal correctly and it took that long for the ECU to detect the discrepancy between the two signals.

Codes are in the heading. P061b and P0500. I also just performed the idle re-learn procedure and still same issues.
