(DTC) CODE # P0700....Transmission Control System (MIL Request)

Translation:
Transmission Control Module (TCM) Malfunction or Failure.

P0700 Information Code

The Transaxle Control Module (TCM) monitors the malfunction of sensors and actuators relating to transaxle control. If any malfunction is detected, the TCM informs the PCM by sending a signal (P0700 code). P0700 means that a code has been set in the TCM.

This code is for information ONLY. If this code is present, check for transaxle codes.

So basically, the P0700 code is telling you to check the TCM for a transaxle DTC. The TCM can not turn on the check engine light so it has the PCM do it. It needs to be scanned with trans capable scanner to see what the trans code or problem is. You should have 1st, 2nd, and Reverse because the car is operating in limp-mode. Since you said the speedometer doesn't work, my guess would be a faulty (VSS) vehicle speed sensor.

We have a 2002 Dodge Ram 1500 that is jerking into gear. It is an automatic vehicle and not a 4x4. This started two days ago and we were on our way back; it was a 25 minute drive we were taking and all of a sudden the truck felt like we hit someone. We did not hit anyone and we checked behind us to see if either something fell out or we ran over something. We pulled over and checked under the truck but did not see anything. Immediatly we saw that the "check engine light" came on so we took it to get checked out. They told us that it came up as Code PO 700. That is all they were able to say since they are not a transmission place. We were told to take it to a transmission shope and they can pin point what is wrong. We have only driven it twice...since the problem started. It now jerks when it goes into 2nd; what I believe is 2nd. Plus when you are taking off it takes off like it is a manual vehicle. Does anyone have any idea what is going on. We plan on taking it to get checked out by the transmission shop but in order to do that we want to have the money to fix the problem and not have to leave the truck there and pay storage fees. Can anyone help?

I have had the same problem before. I was driving down the road when my problems started. My speedometer stop working and my car wouldn't shift out of 2nd. I had a family friend who is a mechanic check it out. He hooked it up to the computer and it ended up being the Turbine Sensor. However you would want to find out exactly which sensor it might be because there is another sensor that can cause that problem as well. I think this happend to me about a year ago but the part costed maybe around $30 or $40. I cant remember what trouble code I had when we hooked it up but that what was wrong with mine.
