im cam, a licenced technician
the output shpaft speed sensor in the transmision assembly underneat the valve body.you will have to drain the fluid , remove the pan and remove the valve body assembly.
than you will be able to access the speed sensor for replacement
I have included a diagram for you and it is identiffied as #2 in the picture
that looks like the vehicle speed sensor that is located on top of the transmission housing below the mount.
there are a few different sensors for these models. dpepending if the parrts guy gave you the right onethe 09a sensors are inside the transmission behind the valve body. that would have to be removed
the picture of the one you sent me is for an externaly mounted vehicle speed sensor
depending on which trans you have,there is generally a output shaft speed sensor (which is located inside the trans behind the valve body) and a vehicle speed sensor
if you have the 09a code, than you have the wrong sensor. that is a vehicle speed sensor.you might want to get a OE one from the dealer and order it by the VIN number as there are 3 different one for these.2 are external mounted speed sensors while there is 1 internal mounted output shaft speed sensor
i do not have parts listings.i would reccomend replacing with an oe sensor ordered by the vin number as there are a few difffeerent ones.buying aftermarket you will need the trans code
id recommend a complete system scan and retreive all stored codes in the pcm, bcm, abs trans and steering systems.its detected a problem and will require a code retrieve
i dont know anything about that scanner and if it can access the individual systems.if its just an obd2 reader than it might not.if its the only code in system than its good just to eliminate that fault first.
without me knowin what trans you have, i wouldnt be able to look it up
