Q: Scanner reads:P0722 and P0700

asked by on January 06, 2017

P0700- Transmission Control Module Requested MIL P0722- Output speed sensor circuit Low Volatge

I have done my research and I fully understand that these are the reasons my car and speedometer are not working or shifting out. What I am confused about is what part I need to buy. I purchased a new output speed sensor shaft but now I am unsure if that is what I need. Same goes for the TCM, do I need a new TCM or just new wires because I pulled the TCM out and it didn't appear damaged. I just do not want to end up buying the wrong or unnecessary parts.

My car has 221000 miles.
My car's transmission is unknown to me.
