I just purchased a '09 Crown Vic P71 Police car from a state auction. The check engine light code shows a PO720 (Speed Output Sensor). I have checked the transmission fluid and it does not smell burnt and is up to the proper level. The transmission has a delay to shift into drive, it does go down the highway ok. Also, the cruise control does work as well as the speedo and the mileage. I would like to replace the speed output sensor on the transmission. Problem is, there is very little room to get your hand up there. What is the trick in R&R this sensor with the trans in place?
Just a FYI, since this is a former police car, is there any police circuits that would be used in the speed output circuit? Is there a fuse for this circuit, if so what # fuse should I be checking? Any help would be much appreciated.
have the same problem?
