It is possible that this code can be caused by the speedometer head itself. The signal from the speed sensor is processed in the speedometer and then sent to the ECM. Check the two screws on the back of the speedometer to see if they are loose. If so retighten and drive to see if the check engine light comes back on. If they are tight, replace the speedometer assembly( I think you gave to purchase the entire meter assembly). If the light still comes on, which is unlikely, you will need to check the wire going to the ECM.

SOURCE: O2 Sensor on a 1996 Cadillac Eldorado

Hello mrsalbert, my name is JShreader. Thank you for choosing fixya.com

Depending on which oxygen sensor you are looking for...there are several of them throughout the Exhaust System. I will start out by giving you a brief description of what and oxygen sensor is, and they're general purpose.

DESCRIPTION
Four Heated Oxygen Sensors (HO2S) are mounted in the exhaust system where they monitor the oxygen content in the exhaust stream. There is an oxygen sensor mounted in each exhaust manifold and one on each end of the catalytic converter. the oxygen sensor located in the front exhaust manifold is the Bank 2 Sensor 1 (Front) sensor. The oxygen sensor located in the rear exhaust manifold is the Bank 1 Sensor 1 (Rear) sensor. The oxygen sensor located in the Y-pipe ahead of the catalytic converter is the Bank 1 Sensor 2 (Pre-converter) sensor. The oxygen sensor located in the catalytic converter outlet is the Bank 1 Sensor 3 (Post-converter) sensor.

OPERATION
An oxygen sensor acts like a battery because it creates its own signal voltage once it reaches operating temperature. This voltage is produced when the oxygen content in the exhaust stream is different than the oxygen content in the atmosphere. A lean condition (high oxygen content in exhaust) will produce a low voltage (near 0 volts) and a rich condition (low oxygen content in exhaust) will produce a high voltage (near one volt). The PCM provides a reference signal voltage (0.45 volt) and a ground to the sensor. The PCM reference voltage is necessary because the oxygen sensors do not provide their own voltage until they reach operating temperature.

HEATING ELEMENT
the oxygen sensors also incorporate a heating element inside of the sensor housing. This heating element is energized with the ignition On and allows the sensors to reach operating temperatures quickly. The PCM can then use oxygen sensor information sooner after engine start-up.

PCM INPUTS
The PCM uses oxygen sensor information during Closed Loop operation to constantly adjust fuel control to reduce exhaust emissions. Because the oxygen sensors provide information sooner after engine start-up, exhaust emissions are reduced. Faulty oxygen sensors will cause various driveability conditions and will set a DTC.

That being said...I uploaded a .pdf for you of pictures showing the locations of ALL the oxygen Sensors on your Vehicle. You can download it by clicking HERE.

I hope this helps you. If you have any more questions or need any more diagrams, please don't hesitate to ask...Thanks again, JShreader!

SOURCE: replacing bad camshaft position sensor

  1. Disconnect battery ground cable.
  2. Remove water pump pulley attaching bolts, then the serpentine belt and water pump pulley.
  3. Disconnect sensor wiring connector and remove sensor retaining bolt.
  4. Twist and pull sensor to remove.
Reverse procedure to install and prior to installing new sensor, lubricate sensor O-ring.

It is located under the water pump. Make sure when you remove the sensor that you rotate the crank shaft and look in the hole to make sure the pick up magnet is still in there. Sometimes they come loose and cause a no start or long crank. You will need to have the code cleared still.

SOURCE: Service Engine soon light Code P0133

I just came from an Autozone, and then spoke with 2 Hyundai dealership service departments and they all three stated the P0113 code is the Intake Air Temperature sensor (IAT, also referred to as the Mass Air Pressure - MAP - sensor) on the engine, not an O2 sensor found in the exhaust system.

input speed sensor for transmission is faulty which will throw the 717 code and when it does it will also tell "root" TCM (transaxle control module) to include the 700 code.
700 happens when it detects an issue with the TCM.
717 happens when the sensor is bad.
- Faulty Transmission Speed Sensor
- Transmission Speed Sensor harness is open or shorted
- Transmission Speed Sensor circuit poor electrical connection

The P0700 is not a true fault code, it just means that the powertrain control module has requested the Transmission control module to turn on the check engine light to alert you of a fault. The P0717 is the one you need diagnosed, it is the real problem,.

Po717


P0717 Input/Turbine Speed Sensor A Circuit No Signal, no its not what you may think,, don't go looking for a turbo or anything, heres what it means

The computer wants to know if the transmission is working properly. So it reads the speed of the input shaft and compares it to the speed of the output shaft. It knows which gear you're in because it commanded the transmission to shift into that gear. So, with the input speed, the gear selection, and the output speed, the computer can calculate how efficiently the transmission is working. If the speed is off, it knows that something is slipping inside the transmission. It can then try to boost the fluid pressure to compensate. If that doesn't work, it sets a different trouble code.

The P0717 code means that the computer isn't getting any signal from the sensor. Either the sensor is dead or there's a circuit issue (bad wiring, etc).

1996 cadillac deville is displaying code pc 0717 can someone tell me want this is?


P0717 Input/Turbine Speed Sensor Circuit No Signal
The system uses a reluctor wheel and a magnetic sensor to aide in shift patterns. If the sensor wiring, sensor or wheel inside the transmission become damaged, it can trigger this code. This should be looked at by a trusted transmission tech in your area. Cadillac does some wierd thing things when it comes to placement, wiring and repiar. Get someone who knows Cadillac to get this done for you. It will save you a lot of heart ache and cursing at the car. Hopefully it will just be a bad sensor, and you will be back out on the road in just a afternoon. Let me know if you need anything else or wish to tackle it yourself. I think I can find some instructions.

I got a P O 717 code what is it ???


P0717: Input/Turbine Speed Sensor Circuit No Signal.
This code shows because the computer isn't getting any signal from the sensor. Either the sensor is dead or there's a circuit issue (bad wiring, etc).

The Input/Turbine Speed Sensor is the sensor the computer uses to to monitor the the efficiency of the transmission. The computer reads the speed from the input shaft and compares it to the speed of the output shaft. If the speed is off it attempts to correct it by boosting the fluid pressure to compensate. When that fails it trips the P0717 error code. In most cases either the sensor is dead or there's a problem in the wiring harness.

There are issue of intermittent connection trouble with this circuit. That would cause the on off problem.
Hope this helps.

You just need to replace the sensors. If you are mechanically inclined, you can do it yourself. If you don't feel comfortable working on an expensive transmission, take it to the dealer.

Code p0733, p0717


P0733 Trany Ratio in gear 3. This is a trany fault code and the first thing you should check is your tps sensor using your DVOM meter. Measuring the voltages between idle and WOT (wide open throttle), there should be no interruption in the reading (or glitches). Otherwise, it can play havoc to your shifting cycles which can cause this code P0733. If there are glitches, replace the tps sensor right away and reset the code. If trany is suspected, most common fix for this points to a defective valve body. To verify, it can be done by using a scanner which has the capacity to command the trany solenoids so it can be tested at various trany operating pressures. P0717 is a improper signal from your pules generator A. Which is a the turbine speed sensor on the transmission, You have two of them, the A reads the speed of the input shaft of the transmission and the B sensor reads the output shaft of the transmission. I know with the P0717 it will put the transmission in the limp mode and will not shift past 3rd gear and if your running the transmission hard on third you may have triggered the P0733 which is the 3rd gear slipping. Check the transmission fluid and make sure you have not burnt the fluid, if the transmission fluid is burnt you may want to have a transmission repair shop replace the turbine speed sensor (Pules Generator A) and the fluid and filter. Cross the fingers and hope the transmission was not ran to hard in third causing damage to the third gear clutch packs. Good luck and keep me posted, be glad to help.

DTC (diagnostic trouble code) P0340 is indicating a fault has occured in the camshaft position sensor system of the cars' electronic engine control system. DTC P0717 is for a transmission input turbine shaft speed. Typically these codes are unrelated. Both the sensors are variable reluctance devices. They have no moving parts and as such are robust and not usually prone to failure. But they can and do fail. Are either codes "hard" faults or are they in the continous memory of the computer? Does the P0340 clear itself when the engine is shut off and restarted? Can you cause the P0340 to reoccure just by starting the engine and with out driving it and revving the engine to 1500 to 2000 rpm for 1 to 2 minutes while in Park? The P0717, when cleared should only reoccure when the car is driven. If the camshaft position sensor has been replaced and still the same code occures make sure you have the correct information as to the meaning of this code in regards to your particular model year and engine. Does the engine have a camshaft position sensor for each camshaft? If so what is the DTC code for the other camshaft position sensor. Yes, the engine's computer (ICM, PCM, ECM, all terms for same thing) could be faulty but in most cases this is not the problem. Does the transmission seem to shift properly? You probably won't notice a differnece in the way the engine runs if the camshaft position fails due to the default stratagy used in the ICM. Wiring would be my next area of concern. Does the wiring for the camshaft position sensor and the transmission sensor go through the same wiring harness and could you have a poor connection at some point in that harness? Inspect the wiring and the hardshell connectors throughout the harness. Let me know what you find out. Thanks
