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.

I would google the code and see what other owners did to correct the problem. It may be an electrical short or lose connection in harness.

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.

Two codes coming up on car even after fixing alot on car now need to figure out low cost ways to fix P0744 & P0722 code issues spent 1,800 on car & have spent 1,400 already in parts & labor.


you need a better mechanic that traces ALL of the possibilities of each code, not just read the code and trow in a part hoping that it's fixed ~ it can be wiring as well, not just plug in a new part as mentioned on the 2nd trouble code to the vehicle speed sensor

P0744 Torque Converter Clutch Circuit Intermittent


P0722 Output Speed Sensor No Signal

the first of the 2 looks to be more intensive to trace and find out the problem & the 0722 is the easier job for an intermediate mechanic to trace the wiring for continuity

It sounds like the transmission is slipping and the sensor is just reporting this info and setting a code, you have made a common mistake. You likely need a transmission overhaul

You need to have the systems computer tested for fault codes, that is the very 1st thing that needs to be done. If they rebuilt the transmission for $900 they did not replace very many parts or do a through job, the average cost is more like $2500.00

2007 nissan sentra service engine light on and putting out code P0845 pressure sensor B circuit fault? Does anyone know what this is? Car is slow to start after stopping at a red light or stop sign also...


This code is a transmission code. This requires the transmission to be replace and the transmission control unit to be reprogramed. If your car has less than 60k miles this would be covered under your power train warranty.

Thanks Jay!

Check engine light


the hose is likely to be a vacum hose and it would make the check engine light stay on but you have to unhook the battery for a min to clear the old codes
