We're all here on ROF to learn and to help others. On some popular Jeep Forums if you ask a beginner question there is a good chance of being ridiculed or dismissed as one not worthy of their sage and perfect advice.
The auto tranny temp sensor is buried inside the tranny somewhere and communicates directly with the PCM, there is no outside access to the sender. A Chrysler engineering 'bonus' is you can't monitor the tranny temperature from a scan tool. Many (me included) added a bung to the tranny pan for a temperature sender and a gauge.
Not sure if that answers your question or not.
