0720 is for transmission output sensor. it helps PCM control shift points. the reason you are getting the code is because the PCM is detecting a difference between the transmission sensor and a the vehicle speed sensor which the PCM reads to control the speedometer... that is going nuts on you.

time to chase a new problem. if you have 4wd, the VSS is on the transfer case.

Edit: I just noticed you already changed it. Check and clean PCM connections
