This code is for the output shaft speed sensor. This sensor is mounted to the outside of the transmission and is fairly simple to replace. The symptoms you have are a common issue when this sensor fails. It's possible there could be a wiring issue or an internal issue with the transmission causing the code, but the sensor itself is the most common failure.

I am sending along a diagram of the sensor location to help. Just click the link below to see it.

Please let me know if there is anything else I can do to help.
