Question about 2002 Chrysler Town & Country

Open Question

Transmission will not engage

After driving 2002 Chrysler Town and Country EX at hwy speed for 1+hrs, experienced a "jerk and sharp rise in rpms" consistent with "slipped gears." After pulling over, shifted to park and back to drive and no engagement; checked other gears and no engagement; same upon engine restart. Checked tranny oil - level and color appear normal. no sounds or vehicle movement when going through gears.

manual key check revealed codes: p1684 and p1698. disconnect battery and wait 10min did not help (but cleared p1698 code.)

owned last 2 months and have not experienced any difficulty with shifting (or anything else;) trans oil changed mid-nov.

last august the previous owner had the tcm replaced with one pulled from another vehicle when their vehicle went into limp-in mode without warning. the shop that did the work advised the owner to take it to a dealership for programming so the mil would go off and prndl would display properly.

    I am hoping somebody could point me in the right direction. First shop it was towed to told me to take it back to where tcm was put in. Checked with that shop and they told me to bring it over for a check. In a week it has not moved from where the tow truck put it down and the only thing I was offered was to have the tranny taken out and rebuilt. Nothing has been checked; the hood was not even raised. Any suggestions? Now preparinig to have it towed for a third time; this is getting ridiculous!

But I am afraid I can't tell you want all these codes mean for your car. It was probably not related to the change in fluid that was performed. However, it is serious and should not be driven until fixed. Risk of total destruction of the transmission is too great. I would assume the symptoms are so diverse that it may be a bad transmission control module. Which is about $200, and fairly easy to replace:

But there are other possibilities, such as a bad relief valve could be letting main pressure drop too low.
This is the type of thing which does require an expert and can't easily be done remotely.

SOURCE: My Chrysler Town and Country 2001 is in limp mode.

you cant get rid of the issue until you find the cause and fix it. i would not recommend throwing any more parts at it, get someone with a scan tool and see what codes are there before you waste any more money

2001 chrysler town country limited. Check engine light is on with a code P740. transmission shifts very well .What is up with this code and what needs to be replaced? also the ac is cold on the passenger...


P0740 Torque Converter Clutch Circuit Malfunction, it could be a sensor starting to go bad, have the code cleared and see if it happens again, have you ever had your transmission fluid replaced, (do not have it flushed) might want to do that as a Preventive Maintenance item.

A/C problem could be the A/C controls on the dash are not working properly, the doors inside the dash are not closing completely, letting warm blended air in on the driver's side.

My chrysler 2002 town and country will not change gears. The RPMs stay at 2 or 3 when going 40 mph. What do I do?


I have the same vehicle, is your engine light on or flashing? Put your key in the ignition, turn back and forth 3 cycles of on off. End in the on position. If you have a 0700 code come up, your transmission is "done". Sounds like it is in "limp mode". Thats what happened to me. Had tranny overhauled, $1800.

Transmission jerks


One possibility is that the speed sensor is going out. When that happens the computer gets bad information and thus makes bad decisions. When the car goes into 2nd all of the solenoids are actually off. That is so if there is some kind of problem the transmission gets no power, then it still has P, R, N, 2nd. It would be kind of weird, maybe, to see only the 1-2 shift being affected but I can't really think of anything else that could cause that kind of problem.

Transmission


This is not uncommon, chrysler spec say that it may take up to 5 seconds to engage when cold. Make sure your flid is topped up to the proper level and I recommend a trans tune every 50,000 kms. Also, your dealer can do a quick learn, which resets all the factory values(recommended after every trans related repair).
