Question about 2008 Nissan Sentra
I just had my transmission replaced under warrenty and now my check engine light is on with a code for the speed shaft circuit sensor. Is that related to the transmission?
Depending on which code, yes it could.
There is a speed sensor in/on the transmission that takes the place of the speedometer cable.

The best way is to use a scan tool to clear the codes, that will turn off the light, also disconnecting the battery over night may work, but no completely sure about that, it varies from year to year.

Anytime a code is set it does not necessarily mean that that part is defective that the code refers to. The code only means that part is being effected. As you have seen, replacing that part may or may not solve the problem. A good technician can determine what is causing the problem based on the code and other factors. Do not throw any more parts at the problem. Have it diagnosed by a professional who knows what they are doing.

First off do not listen to Autozone, they are very quick to spend your money, they are screen readers not trained automotive technicians. No fault code with few exceptions tells you exactly what is wrong, it can be the sensor, the wiring to it or the control module (computer) that has the problem. The pressure sensor is inside the transmission a really dirty big job to access, so have a TRAINED technician look into this before any parts are replaced.
