SOURCE: 1998 Chrysler Sebring convertible Not

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

Possible causes
- 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.

SOURCE: how to fix a code po715 on a honda oddesy

Hi there:
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.

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

You never drive even ten miles with ANY trans issue,
unless you plan on ruining it

You always diagnose & resolve All code related issues
BEFORE you can diagnose trans issues

The trans strategy is part of & based off a complete powertrain
package working properly & together

Diagnose all codes,fix those issueS,then work on the trans
solenoid for od & any codes it has.

Do not use it until ALL Issues are 100% THE ENTIRE VEHICLE

Transmission has to be manually shifted. Downshifts on its own, and i can take off in 1st but only at very slow speed. 2nd and 3rd gear seem fine other than manually shifting.

u need a scan using factory or vehicle specific gear--values of components will be diplayd so an xperiencd tech can decyfr--littl code readers dont du it---w age of car certain sensors etc need replacin-believe that trans is electric controled--dont rplace any parts til uve isolated issue----------also go to magicmechanic online and checout the napa library on that model

Po731 and Po715 on '96 grand caravan

Code 731 is for the computer thinks the ratio is wrong for first gear, and code 715 is for a problem with the input speed sensor. Code 715 could cause code 731.
Someone would need to check the sensor and possibly replace it.

My saturn was running fine. Then it would shift very hard

well if it shifts very hard into every gear that means the pressure control solenoid in the trans went bad and it causing the trans to go to max line pressure thats why it shifts so hard,,,it does that so you can still drive it even thou it broken,anyhow the PC solenoid is under the trans pan which is on the TOP of the trans under the battery,,,,not too hard a job to do, the parts are about $100 labor might be about $200,,,easy fix,,could be alot more,,,and if you dont fix it ,it will break other stuff in the trans and cost alot more,,,
