Dealerships have been known to bungle easy repairs sometimes, so we don't know for sure the TSS/OSS sensors would not have fixed the issue for the poster above.  I would not delay, take it to your independent mechanic to get the sensors (and all of the trans fluid) replaced.  This is a pretty serious issue having gotten to the point of showing the error.

Oh, no doubt I'm taking it to get it checked out. My main question now is how far is it safe to drive if it remains in the high gear/limp home mode?

I would be towing it, TBH.  But driving it carefully, with hazards on, 1 mile in a safe area should be ok.  I would suggest a KAM reset but I don't think that will help at this juncture.  An independent mechanic should also cost less than the dealer for the repair/replacement.  Be sure to put Mercon V in the trans.

I returned to the car this evening, code reader in hand. Got a P0720. Upon clearing the code I could actually hear the transmission "reset," a soft thunk. Car drove fine like nothing has happened.

Regardless, drove it straight to the dealer, and plan on insuring they replace those sensors.

Sensors replaced (and new fuel tank due to recall), picked it up and drove it home. Parked in garage to find major smoke coming from under the hood. Looked under car and saw transmission fluid leaking, dripping onto the exhaust pipe causing the smoke. Drove it right back. Now I'm in a loaner car.

SERIOUSLY??? WTF!!!  Probably overfilled the transmission.  Hope they give it back to you all cleaned up.

That was a pretty incompetent mechanic.

i know a lot of auto transmissions have to be filled with them up to temp and running, and you put it in till it comes out the fill hole. maybe just leftovers?? either way thats sloppy for a dealership to let that leave the bay

2007 Edge - 108k - Son's car, owned 6 months.

 

He had this happen to him this evening and thankfully found this info here and in other places as well. Based upon poking around online, I'm confident I can replace the sensors, flush fluid, and perform the KAM reset myself, but nowhere do I see if I need to be prepared to replace any gaskets to complete this repair. Anyone who has done it themselves have some input?

 

Thanks in advance
