Hey Joe, unfortunately, because your escalade is so new (05), there is not much info available yet online as far as free info goes. I checked a couple of sites and no luck. However, for about the cost of a manual, u should be able to access the speed sensor info and MUCH more online @ either 'alldata' or 'eautorepair'. I will do some more research on it tonight to see if I can find that info, but I'm not too hopeful. Is the escalade AWD?

Transmission not switching into gear and speedometer is not moving

Have the speed sensor checked, The computer gets its info from sensors,So if it sees no speed there is no way it would upshift.

VSS vehicle speed sensor replacement

There are vehicle speed sensors on all four wheels and usually another on the transmission. Depends on why you are replacing and what system you are having trouble with. The ABS uses the four wheels to gauge speed for stopping and traction control purposes. The sensor on the transmission (output speed sensor) is the one that feeds data to the computer for the speedometer. Take off your tires and the speed sensors are easy to find behind the brake rotors. The trans mounted sensor will be easiest to find by having the new part in hand and finding the corresponding sensor to match.

Speed sensor

The sensor should be in the side of the transmission.
The speedo would stop working, or you would have shifting troubles with the transmission. And you would have a check engine light on with a trouble code for the sensor.

Broken Speedometer?

You are correct in thinking if the speed sensor fails the check engine light should be on, and you should experience problems with the transmission.
It sounds like just the speedo has failed.

Would the P0720 code be what caused the P0700 code on my '05 Sonata? I am hoping I can just replace the speed sensor and have no more difficulties.

The engine computer and transmission computer are two separate computers even if they are in the same box.P0700 is a code stored in the engine computer as a flag to let you know there is a code in the transmission computer.Fix the speed sensor issue and you should be fine.No worries, please vote and good luck.

Your mechanic is making a wild guess, find out when trouble code is set and go from there.
