Has to be on the back of the trans. Output Speed Sensor
Hope you can get it out,without lowering the trans,to clear the floor pan

Put that into your search engine and find what you need.
Sorry I can't give you the exact location down to the inch

Now hope you have a bad sensor
Codes don't tell you, that it is bad,or to replace it

I would drive the vehicle with a scanner on it ,and look at data, or run off the ground, and back probe with a meter or oscilloscope, to test. ( I know you can't do that)

Where is the auxillary speed sensor located on the 1998 jeep cherokee, and what is the best way to go about replacing this part?

Your local Autozone should be able to show a diagram on their computer by clicking on job info tab while looking up the part. Most vehicals they are able to do this with. I am off today or I would check it for you.
