Question about Dodge Caliber

Code P0700 on Dodge Caliber

Backstory: On jan 3rd I left my car at my office to go out of town using company car. The car up till this point was fine, no problems. I returned on the 4th and decided to move my car closer to the company car so I could unload personal stuff. Once I started the vehicle the car hesitated for 1 second but started. After everything was loaded up into my car (30 minutes later, I went inside to the office and chatted abit too) I tried to start my car but it wouldn't. This time the dashboard dimmed, flickered then re-lit but did not start. So I got a jump and the car started. I went home, drove approx. 15 miles with no radio on, and decided to get the battery checked the next day. When I woke up in the morning I started the car and again it hesitated but did start. I drove the car around the block and everything was fine, no limp modes, nada. After I parked and turned off the engine, I started it again just to see what would happen. This time it started fine. So I went inside got ready and went to Advanced Auto. As I started to leave the check engine light came on. First time that has ever happened. I went to Advanced Auto and their test showed little crank amps. Actually when he told me to start the engine the car did not start. Lights flickered, went out and then came back on. We installed a new batttery and after that, instant start. No hesitation. He checked the code for the engine light and it read P0700 Transmission Control System Malfunction. No one there had ever heard of that before. QUESTION: Could all this failure to start the engine or starting it with some hesitation before it turns have caused this? The car on the way back was fine, the same way it was before I left it at the office. I took the car up to 60mph, stalling, loss of power, nothing.

SOURCE: Went on trip, drove a little over 500 miles to

PO456 is most times a gas cap or gasket,
to get an incorrect gear ratio the transmission has probably started to slip.

Change the fluid and filter first off in the transmission and use only atf+4 fluid and possibly the govenor pressure sensor,and change gas cap.

SOURCE: 1999 Cadillac Catera - 103,000 miles - cranks but no fire

Hello carol...from the symptons you describe more than likely it's the CPS (crankshaft position sensor.)
The CPS is a common problem on Cateras with these symptoms.
The sensor is a magnetic impulse type that sends a signal to the computer, the computer then triggers the fire signal. When the CPS gets weak, dirty or has low voltage the intermitten no starts occur. It will finally result in a no start at all...Please be aware that a lot of caddy dealers will and have overcharged customers for this common problem by ill advise and replaceing uneeded componets.
Good luck...i hope this helps and will fixya up.

P0700 Transmission Control System Malfunction OBD-II Trouble Code Technical Description Article by Dale Toalston ASE Certified Technician Transmission Control System TCS Malfunction What does that mean? Many vehicles have a control module for the automatic transmission called a transmission control module (TCM). The engine control module (ECM) communicates with the TCM to monitor the automatic transmission for faults. If the TCM detects a fault in the automatic transmission and sets a transmission related fault code, the ECM is informed of this also and sets a P0700 in the ECM memory. This illuminates the Malfunction Indicator Lamp (MIL) to let the driver know there is a problem. If this code is present and the MIL (Malfunction Indicator Lamp) is illuminated that basically means there is at least one transmission code set in the TCM's memory. P0700 is an informational code only. It doesn't point to a direct fault in the engine, only a general fault in the transmission. More diagnosis is necessary to identify what the transmission fault is. This requires a scan tool that will communicate with the transmission module. Symptoms Symptoms of a P0700 DTC may include: Malfunction Indicator Lamp (MIL) illumination The transmission may exhibit drivability problems like slipping, etc. Causes More often then not, the cause of this code is that there is a transmission problem of some kind. The TCM detected the problem and set a code. P0700 means that a fault code is stored in the TCM. However this doesn't rule out the possibility of a failed PCM or TCM (unlikely). Possible Solutions For a P0700 the only real solution is to acquire a scan tool that will communicate with the transmission control module. Extracting this code from the TCM will be the first step in repairing the fault in the transmission. If the TCM compatible scan tool will not communicate with the Transmission Control Module then that is a good indication that there may be a fault with the TCM itself.

2007 dodge caliber has comm problems but when it lets u in has alot of codes in it but will not acclerate at all


Hi William, I'm glad to help. The P0700 code is a to let you know there is a code in the transmission module it doesn't tell you what it is though. Its possible you could have a transmission problem you'll need to spend the money and have it checked out at the repair shop. The other 2 codes will have nothing to do with the way the vehicle runs. U0170 and U0171 or for the Occupant Retraint Satellite Sensors for air bag problems. Hope this helps and havge an awesome day William!

P0700 DODGE - Transaxle Control System Malfunction

Symptoms - Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light)
- Driveability problems
- Transaxle shifting problems

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 DODGE Description The transaxle Control Module (TCM) monitors the malfunction of sensors and actuators relating to transaxle control. When the TCM detects a malfunction with the control, a signal is send to the Engine Control Module (ECM) to trigger the Engine Light or Service Engine Soon light. The ECM stores the P0700 code and it means the TCM detected a malfunction with the transaxle controls.
CLEAR THE CODES AND SEE IF IT RESETS. MOST LIKELY NOT A PROBLEM

(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.


P1776: Solenoid Switch Valve Latched in Low/Reverse Position. The TCM monitors the L/R solenoid to ensure that the fluid transfer happens. It uses a Pressure switch to verify this. Usually this code is set by a switch that is stuck or a solenoid that is not mechanically operating.

A transmission shop would be better suited for this type of work.
