Default 91 ob0 code 17

latly my car has been shaking... a lot. mostly at startup but again a lot while sitting at red lights. when i put the car in N it settles a bunch but returning to D the shaking continues.

after a week of my gf b****n about it i check my codes.

the 12 remains and added is 17.

i looked it up and i got "vehicle speed sensor "

now could this be a combination of both ? just 12 or just 17?

on a side note.
using my lights, blinkers and beams also change the cars steadiness....very noticeably.
(louder too)

but not the stereo.

only the things that r controld by the left lever.

which also causes my temperature guage to go weird.

You really need to find and fix the problems causing both CEL codes. Code 12 for the EGR system but not code 17 for the VSS might cause the low idle problem. You should also try cleaning the IACV and FITV on the throttle body as this could also help your idle problem.
