After a calibratable number of speed transitions the PCM expects that the PSP input should have changed. This DTC is set if the transition is not detected. Vehicle towed with engine running Power steering hydraulic concern was repaired but DTC was not erased PSP switch/shorting bar damaged SIG RTN circuit open PSP circuit open or shorted to SIGRTN PCM damaged Check, if possible, if vehicle was towed or power steering service was performed.
