Question about 1997 Volkswagen Cabrio
I am getting a 0722 code The check engine light is on and I am given a couple of errors but the output speed sensor seems to stay. I replaced the sensor on top of the transmission, cleared the codes, and then 2 weeks later it is staying on again. Like everyone else mines not shifting the first till till 4k rpm's around 40mph Then again at 55-60 4000rpm's. I after I switched the sensor on top of the tranmission for a few days I could take and clear the codes and that worked. Nothing now, the check engine is constant. Somebody told me to replace the gears in the trans but it drives and does real good beyond shifting late and I feel that it might just be the sensor if I can find it. I can not find a listing for it or about it anywhere in my bentley and just lost. HELP

Get someone to check oil pressure with a mechanical gauge, to verify whether you have oil pressure or not. These engine/vehicles, have 2 warning sensors & a control module in the instrument panel. Once you know you have pressure for sure, then you can proceed from there.

The 01M and 09A automatic transmissions do not have a dipstick and procedure requires measuring and maintaining a specified ATF temperature (which is neither cold or hot, but in between) during the ATF level checking. Special Volkswagen tools are required for this operation and it is therefore recommended that ATF level checking on 01M/09A transmissions be left to an authorized VW dealer.

VW Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTCs) and data can be retrieved with VW/Audi Factory Scan Tools such as the VAG 1551, VAG 1552, or the new diagnostic computer VAS 5051 through a Data Link Connector (DLC). Several aftermarket scan tools and computer programs are also capable of retrieving this information in this factory mode. The factory mode also allows the scan tool to be used for other system diagnostic functions and information retrieval. Some DTC information can also be retrieved in a generic mode. The generic mode is not as complete as the factory mode, but allows commercially available scan tools to be used simply to read DTCs. Generic scan tool mode does not have the capability to retrieve the detailed information of a manufacturer-specific scan tool.
VW DTC 17089 = EOBD P-Code P0705 = Transmission Range Sensor Circuit (PRNDL Input) Malfunction.
- Open or short park/neutral position switch circuit.
- Poor park/neutral position switch circuit connection.
- Misadjusted park/neutral position switch.
- Park/neutral position switch may be faulty.
The park/neutral position (PNP) switch includes a transmission range switch. The transmission range switch detects the selector lever position when the shift lever is in the N or P shift position and sends a signal to the Transmission Control Module (TCM).
When is the code detected?
The transmission range switch detects the selector lever position and sends a signal to the TCM.
If you have replaced the transmission range sensor, it could be misadjusted, poor connections, and open or short switch circuit. Check all of these possibilities & repair & adjust the sensor. After that erase P0705 code from TCM memory and test the car.
If speed/odometer and tachometer have also stopped working, I guess there is an Instrument Cluster issue.

Bruce I would talk to the dealer about this only because they just worked on your car. Ask for the manager and explain that you brought the car in to fix the problem and it was not fixed. Let him know that you feel the mechanic was unable to trouble shoot and fix the problem and you feel he replaced the hose blindly without knowing the whole problem. Offer to pay for the part at discounted price because you would have had to if he had finished trouble shooting the problem but you will not pay for the labor because you had to bring the car back with the same issue.
Yes you can replace the valve yourself at home with a little time. The best thing here for you if you don't feel like dealing with the dealership is to a repair manual, do some reading and ask yourself if that is something you won't to tackle.
DO NOT wait if you go to the dealer the longer you wait the easier it will be for them to tell you no. but stick to your guns, if they value your money they WILL work with.
If you do want to fix this at home please let me know and i'll be happy to help you out more

P0793....Intermediate Shaft Speed Sensor Circuit No Signal
P0722....Output Speed Sensor Circuit No Signal
would need a manual to know where these sensors were to be honest
