Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

If it's setting a speed sensor code then that's going to be related to the shift issue. The trans is going into limp in, there may not have been an actual internal problem.

If the speed sensor has been replaced with a known good part and a code is still setting then you almost surely have a wiring or connection issue, but it could be the trans controller itself. Odds are one of the speed sensor wires is either open or has high resistance and it's preventing the trans controller from seeing a signal. The next thing I would recommend is testing the speed sensor wiring for a short to power or ground as well as load testing the circuits from the TCM to the sensor.
