SOURCE: shifting gears
the speed sensor is for Overdrive only, it does not shift the gears it sends the signal to the transmission control module that in turn signals the overdrive shift solenoid to engage/shift into OD.

SOURCE: Shift solenoid problem
Here goes.Remove neg batt cable 10 mm, Remove elec connector to solenoid 6mm. Remove trans lines from trans(sometimes you can get away with not doing this) Remove speed sensor connector small screwdriver just to get the tab to release. Use 1inch scoket to remove spped sensor (just needs to be loose) spin out by hand. Remove 3 blolts 8mm holding the solenoid to trans. When puting new one in make sure the area is clean, clean, clean. Use new gasket. Dealer gasket trans solenoid 04659982 & replace o ring on speed sensor part#06501657ab. The bolts on solenoid snug them down but don't over tighten them. The speed sensor is 20lb torque. The right speed sensor part is 06501658ab this one is blue the left is black. Hope this helps.

The problem is AutoZone. Stay away from that place. I once worked there and was amazed by the number of returns. They sell low quality parts, most of them rebuilt and listed as new.
The best of the low end parts dealers would be KOI, NAPA, and Carquest. All others blow chunks. Else, just go to the dealer.

The computer wants to know if the transmission is working properly. So it reads the speed of the input shaft and compares it to the speed of the output shaft. It knows which gear you're in because it commanded the transmission to shift into that gear. So, with the input speed, the gear selection, and the output speed, the computer can calculate how efficiently the transmission is working. If the speed is off, it knows that something is slipping inside the transmission. It can then try to boost the fluid pressure to compensate. If that doesn't work, it sets a different trouble code.
The P0717 code means that the computer isn't getting any signal from the sensor. Either the sensor is dead or there's a circuit issue (bad wiring, etc).
