Question about Chrysler Cirrus
It sounds like it may be you speed sensor at the transmission which is also called Vehicle Velocity Sensor (VVS), The sensor or the wire harness may have gone bad and needs to be replaced, but it's a good thing to have your car scanned at Auto Zone since they scan free of charge. I just want to make sure it is the VVS and not the transmission Control Module (TCM), Check the fuse under the dash and under the hood and look for any blown fuse like the TCM fuse. Good luck and hope this helps, keep me posted

On the transmission there are two sensors, an input speed sensor and an output speed sensor. The problem is either the output speed sensor or the transmission controller, however it is probably 10 to 1 the speed sensor. If you are looking down at the trans from the front of the car, the speed sensor is located at center of the bell. you will see one by the engine and another near the back. The output speed sensor is furthest from the engine. Un plug the connection and unscrew it from the case. The input and out put look similar, but the threads are different so check the new one to make sure you were given the right one from the supplier.

Had the same problem on my 1999 cirrus lxi. Replaced the output speed sensor on the tranny and topped off the tranny fluid... cleared the check engine light and the cirrus ran great. Caution...the output speed sensor reqires removal of the front left tie and plastic weatherproofing to replace. once you find it's locvation, the replacement is relatively easy.
