My 99 grand cherokee is making a buzzing noise from underneath when its in neutral or park

looks like problems are stacking up here.???
to get help with a buzz, we need to find it.
if its a black box. how may wires go to it and what are the colors of said wires. or look them up, in the schematics.
the speed sensor is bad. or the wires fell off the connector or the connector is corroded.
the 02 are bad, and same suffix, fell off, corroded or melted to exh pipe.
OD lamp is a OD lamp and a warning lamp the operators guide tells you that , it will say, scan the PCM for tranny errors, but you already did that? right and the speed sensor is dead, and no tranny shifts right with a speed (VSS) sensor dead. in fact it goes to limphome mode,

What engine? Rear wheel drive ?Sounds like shift linkage or cable out of adjustment slightly. Have a look at where cable or rod attaches to transmission for adjustment. If not sure of what your looking for get back to me with info.
