Question about Chrysler Town and Country

1 Answer

I have a 2002 Chrysler Town and Country with OBD Codes: P0700; P0732; P0733; P0736; P0841; P0846 and P0992. Is this van worth fixing?

We looked up the codes and this van seems all but done for. We are wanting to sell this van but with all of these codes we are not sure if we should even attempt to fix anything. Lately the transmission is not shifting or takes a few minutes to "kick in". It usually happens when it is cold. There are some oil leaks. The drive shaft has been recently fixed, a power steering hose fixed and the transmission controller was replaced in August of 2012-- because of shifting problems- it would not shift beyond a low gear. Is this worth fixing ourselves or taking to a shop? Or is this van D.O.N.E.?

You might want an estimate from a shop after showing them the code list. Odd, but all codes that start with P0***, are generic codes applicable to all vehicles, but after a too-short search, I couldn't find the P 0800's, or the P0992. It could still be something electrical, not mechanical, in the transmission, but still cost more to fix than feasible if the shop has to do a lot of testing-my way of saying the Town and Country is better left on the side of the road than down it, lol.

I agree, this is a lot of codes. I would tend to think this would be electrical, perhaps computer are a loose connection? These trannys I have rebuilt so far usually have a couple of codes related to the problem but not this many - all over the place.

Fix codes p0700 p0731 p0732 p1782 p1784 p1787 in a 2000 chrysler voyager never had any tran problems until van overheated


Did you fix the over heating problem? No use going to the transmission until that is fixed. With those codes, you are probably in limp mode, 2nd gear. I would still drive it around the neighborhood a while to make sure the over heat problem is fixed. The only reason I say this is because it is a 2000. Not worth throwing away another $400 in transmission parts, if the engine has a blown head gasket.

99 Plymouth voyager and these codes came up p0731, p0732, p0736, p0700 what can i do about it


Probably not much you can do yourself.
Code 700 is a general fault code for the transmission or control module. Code 731 is for incorrect ratio for first gear, 732 is for 2nd gear, and 736 is for reverse. The actual problem could be mechanical or electrical, including the transmission control module.
You would need a shop manual and the necessary tools to check the circuits and solenoids inside the transmission.
