Tip & How-To about Jeep Wrangler

I get code p0700 after an OBDII scan.

P0700 Transmition Control system is the transmission control module.
The transmission control module is a separate computer module, you need to read codes stored on transmission control module.

If there are no transmission code stored, then there is a bad Transmission Control Module (TCM) ground circuit or a bad TCM. In that case the ground to TCM must be tested, and TCM eventually replaced.

Faults that can cause troubles when shifting from first to second gear are : transmission fluid, speed sensor, TPS, transmission shift solenoid, gear box problem, TCM, neutral switch, torque converter problem.

The best thing to do is scanning TCM codes.

DTC P0700: Transmission Control Module (TCM) Requested MIL Illumination
DTC P0700 can not be cleared from the ECM until the related TCM codes have been cleared.

The transmission control module (TCM) uses the (GMLAN) to signal the engine control module (ECM) that the TCM is requesting malfunction indicator lamp (MIL) illumination. This happens when the TCM has determined that a failure affecting emissions has occurred in transmission control system. When the ECM receives the a message from the TCM, DTC P0700 will set.

Automatic Transmission - 4L60-E/4L65-E/4L70-E

TROUBLE CODES 605 AND 700


Is this P0605 and P0700? If so read on.
P0605 - Control Module Fault
Possible causes- ECM/PCM Harness power supply circuit is open or shorted
- ECM/PCM Harness ground supply circuit is open or shorted
- ECM/PCM may be faulty
P0700 CHRYSLER - Transaxle Control System (TCM) Malfunction
Possible causes- Shorted or open circuit within transmission control module (TCM)
- Failure of transaxle control module
Tech notes Since the P0700 is just and informative code, check the TCM for more codes to resolve the problem

P0700


P0700 means that the TCM (transmission control module) has detected a fault in the electronic control system of the transmission and has requested the PCM (powertrain control module) to turn on the check engine light to alert u to the fact that the transmission has malfunctioned, u must now get the the TCM tested to see what particular fault code(s) u have, these codes can't be read with a generic ODB2 scanner or code reader, u need a dealer to test the TCM, the OBD2 code reader can't do that.
