Speed sensor headache

I have seen a million threads on these things but none of them have the answer to my problem. I had a code for output speed sensor so I replaced it as well as the vehicle speed sensor. I disconnected the battery to reset codes and it seemed to be fixed. Drove it down the road and light came back on and symptoms reappeared. Anyone know of a fix? Code still reads bad sensor, speedo still freaks, and it continues to stall/not shift properly. Any advice is helpful at this point. Thank you

I have a 4.0 with a 42RE...
Fluid levels are where they should be...

As you can see in the diagram, it's a straight shot to the PCM, middle connector.

So you've got a wiring or connector problem, a bad PCM...not likely but not out of the question, or a bad replacement sensor... even more unlikely.

Check the harness from the transmission for chaffing or damage. Then pull and clean PCM connectors.

I will give that a try this weekend. Do you think I can determine bad wiring with volt meter? Or do I have to just follow the wires?
