Hello and welcome to JustAnswer! I apologize for the extended wait time you experienced, I've only just come online now and would like to assist you with your question.

P0726 isn't a valid code, I'm assuming it's setting a P0725 in the TCM. This code sets when the trans controller isn't receiving a valid engine RPM signal from the engine controller. This signal is sent on a dedicated circuit between the two modules over the white/green wire at pin 103 and the ECM and 39 at the TCM. If the TCM and ECM have been replaced with known good parts and the code is still setting then there is an issue with this wire. It's either shorted to power or ground, is open or has high resistance, or something else is inducing current into it, at the time the code is active.

My goal is to give you the best experience possible! I hope I have earned a 5 star rating! Please remember to rate my service by selecting the 5 stars at the top of the screen before you leave today. If you need more assistance, please use the reply box and let me know.

When I check my signal in the tcm l have a rpm .raise. Up on speed increase. If I cut on ignition switch with no start and pull shifter to drive and over to select gear I can receiver a 1 gear read. But if start the engine it will go to 5 reading only. Roy

The engine speed signal isn't correct for whatever reason at the time the code is setting. If the parts have been ruled out then the problem has to be wiring.
