Does a transmission sensor cause a Cel?

If I am correct the transmission has a speed sensor and a Control solenoid. Do either of these cause a Cel if they fail?

There are a number of electronic sensors and solenoids that can set a code, yes. Some of them will also cause the OD light to blink. Not all of these codes are readable with all OBD-II scanners.

VSS, OSS, shift solenoids, temp sensor, TCC, etc; these malfunctioning can cause a CEL and/or blinking OD light.
