P0705 Range Sensor A, PRNDL input error

This error is for an automatic trans, the car I own is a '99 Mazda Miata stick. My mechanic is scratching his head.

    Is this vehicle a manual transmission or an automatic? That code is typically from an automatic transmission.

www.hmaservice.com provides a gud insite about codes.. You'll need to register for a free account, and the site requires Internet Explorer. Once you've logged in, select "service information," and click on the TSB (technical service bulletin) tab. Enter your year and model, select transaxle, and read the service bulletins I reference below.

P0708 indicates that multiple inputs were received at the same time from the transmission range switch. In most cases, the range switch itself is the culprit and needs to be replaced. There are instructions on replacing the range switch, including proper adjustment of the switch and shift cable in TSB 03-40-013. Most do-it-yourselfers will be able to tackle this job

hope this helps
Thanks for using Fixya

sounds like the trans range sensor or it could be internal trans problem. is the trans shifting ok? if not, it might need an overhaul. the sensor might be something you can tackle but it's on top of the trans right below the air filter housing. it the sensor that the shifter cable is connected to. you'll have to have it in neutral to install it as the sensor has line up marks on it.

SOURCE: Location O2 sensor after cat for Mazda Miata 2002

Just had BOTH of my O2 sensors replaced in my 2002 Miata.  The sensors are located
1. at the back of the engine compartment look down (on the passenger side ) You should see a spark plug looking device near the bottom of the engine (on the side) it has a short wire output that goes to a connector looking device on the other end. This O2 sensor had a short wire connector on the other end
Probably can be replaced from the top.
2.  This one is tougher --- From underneath the vehicle just after the catalytic converter  you should be able to see the Spark plug like O2 sensor .  The person who repaired it for me had to trace the wire from the O2 sensor.  It goes up into ( perhaps the frame or bottom of the vehicle INTO the Driver compartment under the drivers seat.  It is located near the Center Console  right at the carpet seam. It was about in a straight line from the BACK of the Drivers side Car Door.  He felt around -- and located the Connector (under the carpet near the center console. .  He checked underneath the car to the point where the wire disappeared --to confirm he had the correct wire.  
Once he located where the sensor wire led to --He had the old sensor out and wire connector disconnected and a  New sensor and the connector installed in about 10 minutes.  
The O2 sensor for this one was much longer than the first O2 sensor in the engine compartment He had to use some sort of standard release spray on the old sensor itself --to remove the old O2 Sensor.   Since it is exposed to the elements under the car.   Wrench, I think a screwdriver  and the spray were all the tools I remember him using.....

The autozone code indicated only the engine compartment sensor was bad.
The repair man told me Both usually go bad at the same time.  
I fixed the first one only -- turned out the warning light lit up a day or so later indicating the second O2 Sensor under the vehicle was bad.  Fixed that as well -- have had no problems since -- repair was about 4 months ago.....

2001 Ford Escort ZX2 Enginge Code P0705-- How do I fix it?


Hi there:
DTC P0705 - Trans Range Sensor Malfunctionin (PRNDL Input)

Likely the TRS sensor on the side of the transmission is bad, but I would take a quick look at the connector and the wires as sometimes they can melt due to the heat underneath the vehicle. Also check other details HERE.

Hope helps.
