Where is the sensor that you replaced located?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
trans is 45rfe replaced back sensor which is the output erased code 3x it still came back after few secs / then cleaned off the sensor I took out and installed it in the font (input ) sensor same thing cleaned code came back with out drive wonder if it isn't wire or pcm ?????????
Expert:  CDJMasterTech replied 5 years ago.
Without knowing the exact code number I can't tell you for sure, but if it was a "output sensor circuit" code then the only things that can cause it are a bad sensor, wiring or TCM (transmission control module). You need to check the integrity of the wiring and if it is ok then replace the TCM.
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
exactly what I was saying but I need to know wire diagram so I can trace back to tell if there is a break in the wire between sensor and the pcm / also can I check the sensor to see if it is bad from new is their an ohm reading test DBR code is P0720 output speed sensor circuit
Expert:  supertech replied 5 years ago.
Hi my name is John.

Have you done the test for the code p0720?

Here a copy of the wiring diagram and pin out of the two connectors.

Hi John , the test I saw in the jeep manual called for the use of the miller sp tool 8815 which I don't have access to ,which is why I was looking for the wire diagrams and if you could do ohm test to check the senders .also bit in question why code was showing right back up after it was cleared without driving it . Don't input and output sensors need the jeep to drive to send signal to the pcm by building up electric current
Expert:  supertech replied 5 years ago.
Yes the transmission need to be turning to send a signal.

there is either a short or open in the wiring or a bad connector most likely, would you like to know what else to test for the problem?

Here a copy of the test for you to do.
