I would have the transmission shop check out the transmission.
The transmission may have a soleniod issue.

Sounds like something internal in the trans. It will be an electrical issue, not mechanical. Only way to tell is to hook it to a machine.

What would cause an 02 t&c speedometer to stop working & not shift into overdrive? Codes p1193 & p1684 came up on dash. Van was shifting fine before that


My first guess would be a defective speed sensor in the transmission.
Neither of the codes you mentioned involve the speedo problem. Code 1193 is for a problem with the intake air temp sensor, and code 1684 means the engine computer has lost battery power at some point in time.

My speedometer will not work check engine light goes on and off and the overdrive indicator light flashes. All this happens intermittently with hotter weather it seemingly happens more frequently. Scanned...


code p 0500 is for the vehicle speed sensor (VSS) which works the speedo as well as the ratio changes
code p0720 refers to the output shaft sensor --ECM or transmission control module (TCM)
the vss reports to the tcm which reads the road speed and gear ratio and shifts the appropriate solenoid

I have a 94 4runner and I ran the diagnostic and its a 42 code for the OD/off and engine 42. It doesn't shift into over drive sometimes and it'll blink OD/off every now and then, and the speedometer...


Hi,

Code #42 on the 4Runner denotes a problem with the Vehicle Speed Sensor (VSS) circuit.

It means the ECM did not detect a signal from the VSS, above 2,200rpm....which might explain the speedo issue - Does your speedo play up, only when engine running above 2,200rpm or 2,700rpm?

Areas to check (in this order) are:

- Open (or short) in the VSS circuit
- faulty VSS sensor
- ECM fault within VSS circuit


Cheers,

Transmission problem


is the shift solenoid getting a signal to shift? a code doen't always mean the part is the problem, it can be the wiring and the PCM (powertrain control module) as well causing the problem, but the PCM is the least likely cause, check the wiring from the trans connector to the PCM..

95 taurus will not shift out of first gear.


My inlaws Ford Taurus had a similar problem. Is the speedometer working? Their speedometer was working one minute and then the next it wasn't, when it wouldn't shift, the speedo wasn't working either. When the speedo decided to work the transmission shifted. In this case I deduced and researched the speedo sensor. My theory was that if the computer couldn't determine the speed, it wouldn't know when to shift. My research validated my theory and basically stated that when the speedo doesn't tell the computer how fast the car is moving then the computer places the transmission into 2nd gear as a default Safety Mode. I replaced the speedo sensor (located on the backside of the engine on top of the axle with a wire lead pluged into it). When I replaced it their troubles were over. I don't know if this is your problem, but it's something to look into.
