Getting a code 720....

Ok, here's the deal. My buddy has a 99 R/T and has some minor mods to it (Exhaust, cold air intake), and wanted to try a performance tune from my 3715 that I have.

I downloaded it for him and he took it for a good run. After he got home and started to drive it again, the check engine light came on.

code is this: 720 The Output Shaft Speed Sensor doesn't match the reported vehicle speed

I put the truck program back to stock and reset the code but it came back.

Coincidence? Bad sensor? And where is the sensor located on the tranny?

The speed sensor is located in the overdrive gear case. The sensor is positioned over the park gear and monitors transmission output shaft rotating speed.
Not sure but I think this picture has a green arrow pointing at it. This is a 46RH but it should be close.
