How do I fix code P0722?
What repairs can fix the P0722 code?
- Repairing or replacing a damaged or faulty transmission output speed sensor.
- Repairing or replacing a damaged or faulty engine coolant temperature sensor.
- Repairing or replacing a damaged or faulty shift solenoid.
- Flushing the system and changing the transmission fluid.
What does P0722 mean?
Output Speed Sensor No Signal
OBD-II Code P0722 is defined as a Output Speed Sensor No Signal. When the code P0722 is set in the Powertrain Computer, it means that the Powertrain Computer or PCM is not seeing a consistent speed signal from the Transmission’s Output Speed Sensor.
What is output shaft speed sensor?
The vehicle speed sensor (VSS) is also commonly referred to as a transmission speed sensor or output shaft speed sensor. It is a small device—typically mounted somewhere on the transmission—that determines how fast your vehicle is going by measuring the rotation of a toothed wheel on a shaft inside the transmission.
What can cause a P0720 code?
What causes the P0720 code?
- Malfunctioning output speed sensor.
- Malfunctioning input speed sensor.
- Damaged or corroded wires, or loose connectors.
- Contaminated or low transmission fluid.
- Faulty engine drivability sensors.
- Malfunctioning shift solenoids.
- In very rare cases, a defective PCM.
Can you drive with a broken speed sensor?
Can you drive with a bad speed sensor? In general, it is unsafe to drive a vehicle with a broken wheel speed sensor. The car’s computer will not be able to determine the speed that your vehicle is traveling, so it might apply the brakes at a faster rate than necessary or increase the engine power.
How do you fix a transmission sensor?
Replacing Your Transmission Speed Sensors
- Having found the sensor or sensors to be faulty, remove the connector between the sensor and the vehicle’s wiring.
- Using the proper socket, remove the faulty sensor.
- Connect the new sensor to the vehicle’s wiring.
- Install the new sensor.
- Lower your car.
- Start the engine.
Where is the output speed sensor located?
Locate the speed sensor. The sensor is found on the bottom of the transmission and can be identified as a small plug that is sticking straight out of the transmission with an electrical connector plugged into it.
