SOURCE: 2002 Dodge Caravan Transmission not upshifting

Hello,
I also was concerned about my tranny in my 1998 dodge caravan. I replaced the fluid & filter and it worked for a while. I finally had to bring it to AAMCO Transmission and they gave me a free evaluation of it & an estimate for the job. I had the option of ignoring their evaluation results and bring it home or just bite the bullet and have it repaired. I thought I could get a lot more miles out of it so I had it fixed for $1400 with no regrets.

Perhaps if you can find a similar place with free evaluation & estimate then that would be the thing to do as you seemed to have covered all the other bases.

Good Luck!

SOURCE: Error code P0505 and rough idle with surge

The code you have is difinitely idle air control motor. I guess you could check continuity and compare to a known good unit, but this test may not be valid. Before condemming it though, make sure "business end" is clean and free of carbon or varnish. That applies to passage into plenum as well. If everything is clean then replace unit.

SOURCE: po605 and po700

p0700 is a generic trans. code, so the problem if it is in the trans. would require further trans diag. so i would scan trans specific codes first. but in most cases when a chrysler tells you it is an internal controller fault you can believe it. just make sure which controller it is telling you has a fault!

I need to find out the examination center number of merton college in 1990. It is now south thames college and they hold no records prior to the change. Please help.


A power-train control module, abbreviated PCM, is an automotive component, an electronic control unit (ECU), used on motor vehicles. It is generally a combined control unit, consisting of the engine control unit (ECU) and the transmission control unit. Powertrain control module. This wiki page will explain what you need to understand.

Loss of communication with the tcm and pcm


The onboard computer, or Powertrain Control Module (PCM),is the brains of the engine control system, so when the brain is not functioning correctly neither is the engine or anything else that the microprocessor controls - which may include the charging system, transmission, various emission controls and communications with other onboard control modules. Once a diagnosis has been made (and we emphasize the word diagnosis), then and only then should the PCM be replaced.

P0601....Internal Control Module Memory Check Sum Error

P0602....Control Module Programming Error

P0603....Internal Control Module Keep Alive Memory (KAM) Error

P0604....Internal Control Module Random Access Memory (RAM) Error

P0605....Internal Control Module Read Only Memory (ROM) Error

P0606....ECM/PCM Processor

P0607....Control Module Performance

P0608....Control Module VSS Output 'A'

P0609....Control Module VSS Output 'B'

P0610....Control Module Vehicle Options Error

If you see any of these codes when diagnosing the vehicle with a code reader or scan tool, it may mean the PCM has failed and must be replaced. Additional diagnostic tests will usually be necessary to confirm the problem is really the powertrain control module and NOT something else. Refer to the OEM diagnostic charts for what these tests are. Usually it involves checking certain inputs to the PCM to see if it outputs the correct response. No response or an incorrect response usually means the PCM is defective and needs to be replaced.
All too often, technicians tend to blame that which they understand least. If an engine is not running right and the cause is not obvious, they may blame the computer. Throwing parts at a problem in an attempt to solve it may be good for the parts business, but when a customer brings a PCM back because it failed to fix their problem, nobody wins. Warranty returns on complicated and expensive components like powertrain control modules are an ongoing problem that costs everyone money.
UNNECESSARY POWERTRAIN CONTROL MODULE RETURNS. Over 50 percent of PCMs that are returned under warranty (either because the PCM failed to fix a performance problem or because the engine did not run properly after it was installed) have nothing wrong with them! So it is obvious a lot of people are swapping computers to see if a different PCM will fix their problem.
The trouble with returns is if the PCM has been on the car, you have no way of knowing if it is still "good" or not. Somebody may have crossed up some wires, zapped the PCM with too much voltage or who knows what? The computer needs to be tested and verified before it can go back on the shelf and be sold to somebody else.
Unfortunately, there is no easy way of doing that in a parts store. The PCM has to be hooked up to a sophisticated simulator that exercises all of the computer's input and output circuits to make sure it works correctly - which means the PCM has to go back to the supplier, be retested, and if no fault is found, repackaged and put back into stock.
Be warned, though, that many parts stores have a policy of "no returns or refunds on electronic components."

Was driving fine then appeared to start missing when I give it gas


When the service engine soon light a yellow light (Also called the check engine light or engine management light) is turned on this is to alert you to the fact that Powertrain Control Module (computer) has detected a failure somewhere in the systems it controls you may not feel any difference in the way the engine runs, this can be the transmission or the engine or emission system, there are fault codes set in the modules memory for these faults. What needs to happen now is to have the powertrain control module scanned with a special tool called an OBD2 electronic engine control scanner or a OBD2 code reader. Once the code(s) are read then you must perform the diagnostics for each code and make the appropriate repairs based on the findings of the diagnosis that was performed, this is called doing "Pinpoint" testing.

2005 NISSAN X-TRAL 2.0 PETROL HAS A SUDDEN BUST OF POWER AT ABOUT 4000RPM. WHY ?


Hello
The Engine and Automatic Transmission (not applicable to manual transmissions) in this vehicles drive train are fully electronically controlled by a computer called the PCM and TCM (Power Train Control Module, Transmission Control Module). When a problem like this or other drive-ability related problems occurs the computer stores a record of the problem (there are of course some exceptions to this, like the fuel pump, engine coolant temperature sensor and MAF sensor for instance) in the form of a fault code in its memory, to read these fault codes you must have the systems memory scanned with a special tool. Once the fault code(s) are read you then must perform the appropriate diagnostic testing to find and resolve the problem(s) DO NOT REPLACE ANY PARTS UNTIL A TRAINED TECHNICAIN HAS DIAGNOSED THE PROBLEM TO AVOID SPENDING YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY ON PARTS THAT MAY NOT CORRECT THE PROBLEM. Also always check fuel pressure for correct spec for your make and engine type.

Powertrain control module ROM error in a 2005 ford escape


You must replace the PCM. ROM = Read Only Memory. Also known as the "EPROM" "Electronic Programmable Read Only Memory" You will need the part number off the old PCM to get the right one. You will also likely the the Engines Calibration Code (on valve cover sticker)

Engine light is on code coming up p0601


This code indicates an error or fault in the powertrain control module memory. A common procedure known as memory flashing is performed at the dealer. The vehicle's computer (powertrain control module) memory is erased, then replaced with an updated version of the previous driveability program. If the powertrain control module doesn't store the program, then a replacement module would be the next likely service.

Recently my check engine light came on and I did a diagnostic to find a P0607 error to appear. The code had read something about a power train control module. I will probably end up taking my car into the...


P0601 Internal Control Module Memory Check Sum Error
P0602 Control Module Programming Error
P0603 Internal Control Module Keep Alive Memory (KAM) Error
P0604 Internal Control Module Random Access Memory (RAM) Error
P0605 Internal Control Module Read Only Memory (ROM) Error
P0606 ECM/PCM Processor
P0607 Control Module Performance
P0608 Control Module VSS Output "A"
P0609 Control Module VSS Output "B"
P0610 Control Module Vehicle Options Error
The p0607 error says Control Module Performance. It has something to do with the Control Module for the powertrain as you indicated. But, you may be able to take your car to a transmission shop to alleviate the problem using a transmission expert.

I don't think that it doesn't have anything to do with the engine, itself, even though it's listed under a driveability related code.

Good luck on this repair.
