P0720 is a code for the output shaft speed sensor on the transmission. If you are handy with a volt/ohm meter you can test the resistance of the sensor unpluged. should be 500-700 ohms. or you can just put a new sensor in, its a comon problem.

How to clear engine codes 1999 dodge ram 2500

This is the most up-to-date check engine code reference chart for all of Dodge including

2000 and newer Durango have a built-in system that can display check engine light (CEL) codes without the use of a scanner. 1999 and earlier Durangos must be read with a OBD-ll scanner. Your local auto parts store can get the codes for you either way and will usually do this for free.
hope this help let me know : - )

2000 and newer directions:
Turn the key to ON (not start), OFF, ON, OFF, ON and leave it there. If you look in the odometer window the codes will flash any code(s) with a small delay between each result. Each code should be in a P#### format, and will say PDONE when completed - turn your key to OFF and remove. Use the OBD code list to determine what problem the computer detected.

To reset your engine codes:
Remove the negative terminal of your battery (10mm wrench).
Turn your ignition key to START and hold it there for about 15 seconds.
Turn your ignition key to OFF and remove it.
Connect the negative terminal of your battery.
Start but do not hit the throttle. Idle for about 10/15 seconds then turn off.
Restart the truck and drive as usual. It will take at least 12 starts and 48 miles to fully retune the computer. Hard Codes leave a shaddow for 40 full cold starts.

Whats an OBD 2 fault code

thats a code generated by the computer that triggers the check engine light
in a dodge try this to find out what your code is, with the truck in park or nuetral(standard) set the emergency brake, then cycle the key from off to on 5 times resting it in the on position (note, the on position is right before the start position) if your check engine light has been on then watch your odometer to display some codes, write them down and then come back here or google them :) hope this helps, have a nice day.

When the engine is warm it won't idle. It also has a check engine light
