P-0720:
Low Output Speed Sensor (OSS) RPM above 15 mph.

WHEN MONITORED:
Continuously with the key on, engine running, and gear selector not in park or neutral.

SET CONDITION:
This code is set if the vehicle speed (as determined from the vehicle speed sensor), is above 15 mph , and the output shaft speed is below 60 rpm for 2.6 seconds.


• OSS defective
• OSS ground circuit open
• OSS ground circuit short to ground
• OSS signal circuit open
• OSS signal circuit short to ground
• Park-neutral switch code present
• PCM defective (OSS signal ckt def)
• Powertrain Control Module defective
• OSS harness intermittent defect

Most likely it's a bad OSS. The OSS is located on the back of the transmission.

zoneman,
How does one remove the VSS from the differential? It looks like there are 2 pieces where one fits inside the other. However, after removing the hold down bolt neither piece looks like it wants to come lose without prying. Also you mention that it is the ABS sensor that generates the speedometer display. If true where is that sensor located?

I have an '04 JGC, 4.0L, auto, 29K miles. Have had a similar problem last 2 winters, driving on snow covered roads in 4WD. The engine speed suddenly and inexplicably increases to 3000 RPM and vehicle seems to be "freewheeling," as if in neutral If I back off the gas, all returns to normal. On first occurrence, dealer checked and found no problems. On most recent occurrence, MIL came on and now is off, but code P0720 is stored. Most other posts for P0720 seem to assume that a speed sensor is defective, but I think that I have a real problem with either the tranny or transfer case. Any insight would be appreciated. Thanks.
