Default P0715 Input Turbine/Speed Sensor Circ. Malfunction

Ok here is the deal my girlfreind's 99 jetta 2.0 is throwing this code. I dont have a vag com but I am saving up for one. I used an obdII scanner and got the code "P0715 Input Turbine/Speed Sensor Circ. Malfunction" If anyone knows how to fix this please let me know. I know this is the TDI club and her car is gas powered, but i myself own a TDI and trust you guys over any vwvortex member any day.

Generic OBD-2 sucks...

VAG-COM would say...

Transmission Input Speed Sensor (G182): Circuit Malfunction

Much more clear now, isn't it?!

Yup, it is.

The sensor will probably need to be replaced, and since it's in the tranny, it's likely not a do-it-yourself job unless you're really brave.

Add "get a Bentley CD" to your list...I'm pretty sure it's in there. Or check the listed of "trusted TDI mechanics" in the "TDI 101" section for someone close to you. It sounds like a problem common to TDIs and non-TDIs alike, so I don't think any of the big guys would have any problems fixing it.

First off thanks for your help i truely appreciate it. I am very mechannicaly inclined and have much experience in repairing cars. I would be willing to repair this myself if it DOES NOT INVOLVE ripping apart the transmission, if it is just dropping the pan and/or removing some easy componenets i will be willing to do this. About the Bently I own a 06 jetta tdi and my g/f's car is a 99 jetta 2.0, since these are about $90 a pop, would i still bee looking at the same tranny if i got the manual for the 06 TDI?

Default Sensors on tranny of 01m. All vws

You don't have to tear down any transmission or take it apart! That is false info people have given you!
The only two sensors you have to worry about if you get codes P0722, and P0715 is on top of the tranny! called input speed sensor (G38) and output speed sensor (G68) No need to go inside any transmission! Although to replace the G68 sensor is a pain because you have to lower the tranny to get at it. It is under the left transmission mount!
