Default Transmission Speed sensor location 2004 Ion Sedan

Hello,

My wife's car is getting the P0722 and P0700 code and it's a bad transmission speed sensor. The car has the 5 speed automatic and from what I read it's on top. Just want to make sure this is the right sensor before I go buy the part. Is it on the right with the blue connection?


Thanks for looking.

From the service manual; The output shaft speed (OSS) sensor assembly provides vehicle speed information to the transmission control module (TCM). The OSS sensor assembly is a hall-effect sensor. The sensor is mounted in the transmission case facing the parking lock gear which is splined to the output shaft assembly. As the output shaft and parking lock gear rotate, the toothed parking lock gear produces a square wave voltage signal as the teeth pass through the magnetic field of the sensor.

Check the two terminals for 12v and resistance in the sensor (for an open or short) before replacing the output speed sensor.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Well that was the problem. Installed it this afternoon and the engine light went away. Check amazon for the part, they were cheaper by $70.00 than everywhere else. Even better it available for prime members paid $3.99 for next day shipping!!!

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
