DTC P0715 CHRYSLER - Input Speed Sensor 1 Circuit
P0715 is detected when TCM or ECM does not receive the proper signal from the sensor.
The input speed sensor detects the primary pulley revolution speed and sends a signal to the Transmission Control Module (TCM) and Engine Control Module (ECM).
- Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light)
- Possible shifting problems
- Transmission speed sensor circuit is open or shorted.
- Poor transmission speed sensor circuit connection
- Faulty transmission speed sensor
Hope this clues helps to solve it.

Make sure the TSS sensor connector is good. Since you replaced the engine it is possible the wires/pins in the connector are loose or bad. I have seen where the wires break inside the insulation at the connector.You could have a bad TSS sensor (200-400 ohms good), if you have a multi meter we can check the circuits too. I would check the connector and then clear the code , test drive and see if it comes back. The PCM uses this sensor to control shift patterns so a fault is stored in the PCM. P0715 is for a loss of TSS signal during operation.
we can check the continuity but that will only show if there is high resistance. If there is a wire about to break(instead of 15 strands connected 3 or 4) we need to load the circuit or wire. If we put 12 volts through the wires(disconnected from the sensor and PCM of course) and we use a light bulb as a load if the wire is bad the bulb will be dim. I would start with an ohm check of the sensor and a close inspection of the connector.
We start with an ohm test on the sensor and then continuity test the circuit. Then we load the circuit. I have had the wires break as I disconnected the connector or tugged on the wires at the connector.

1996-97 Accord L4 - ALL with A/T
1996-97 Odyssey - ALL
MIL Comes On With A/T DTC P0715
The MIL comes on, and A/T DTC P0715 (problem in the mainshaft speed sensor circuit) is set.
Retrieve and record the A/T freeze data with the PGM Tester. Make sure you record the freeze data values on the repair order. Refer to DIAGNOSIS to determine which of these repair actions is needed:
* Replace the PCM
* Flush the A/T
* Replace the A/T
* Troubleshoot the mainshaft speed sensor circuit
* Troubleshoot an engine problem
Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.
Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.
