P0727 Engine Speed Signal Circuit Low Input - With Automatic Transmission
Engine speed signal circuit is open (PCM to the TCM)
Engine speed signal circuit shorted to ground (PCM to TCM)
TCM or PCM has failed
Engine running; throttle angle from 5-94%, gear selector not indicating Park or Neutral position, and the TCM detected the Engine Speed signal indicated less than 96 rpm.
This code sets in 2 Trip(s).
This code will turn on the MIL (Malfunction Indicator Lamp)
Take it to a shop with proper testing equipment and get it diagnosed. Could be a couple of different sensor giving a false signal causing this problem.
