Nissan Altima 2007-2012 Service Manual: P1723 cvt speed sensor function

Description

The vehicle speed sensor CVT [output speed sensor (secondary speed sensor)] detects the revolution of parking gear and generates a pulse signal. The pulse signal is sent to the TCM, which converts it into vehicle speed.

The input speed sensor (primary speed sensor) detects the primary pulley revolution speed and sends a signal to the TCM.
