What Does P0721 Code Mean?

    OBD-II Code P0721 is defined as a Output Speed Sensor Circuit Range/Performance

    The Output Speed Sensor tells the Transmission Control Module (TCM) how fast the output shaft of the transmission is spinning so it can verify the correct gear is engaged. When the TCM receives an inaccurate or irrational signal from this sensor, it is an indication that there is an issue inside the transmission. The engine control module (PCM) or TCM will set code P0721.
