Controls how the tranny shifts. Usually hard to change on newer vehicles because it is located inside the tranny. Be more specific.

PCM means Powertrain Control Module. It's located in the engine compartment. The TCM is also located on the passanger side of the engine compartment. Hope this will help you.

SOURCE: Where is the transmission control module (TCM) on

Hi.

This vehicle does not have a Transmission Control Module.
Transmission control is accomplished through the Engine Control Module or Powertrain Control Module.

The Powertrain Control Module (PCM) is located in the right-rear side of the engine compartment.

2hat does code #P0700 mean on a 2007 Chevy Silverado. 4x4 mean


DTC P0700: Transmission Control Module (TCM) Requested MIL Illumination
DTC P0700 can not be cleared from the ECM until the related TCM codes have been cleared.

The transmission control module (TCM) uses the (GMLAN) to signal the engine control module (ECM) that the TCM is requesting malfunction indicator lamp (MIL) illumination. This happens when the TCM has determined that a failure affecting emissions has occurred in transmission control system. When the ECM receives the a message from the TCM, DTC P0700 will set.
You don't say which engine your's has ! Or which transmission .
Automatic Transmission - 4L60-E/4L65-E/4L70-E

You need to have TCM checked for codes .

Tip

I get code p0700 after an OBDII scan.


P0700 Transmition Control system is the transmission control module.
The transmission control module is a separate computer module, you need to read codes stored on transmission control module.

If there are no transmission code stored, then there is a bad Transmission Control Module (TCM) ground circuit or a bad TCM. In that case the ground to TCM must be tested, and TCM eventually replaced.

Faults that can cause troubles when shifting from first to second gear are : transmission fluid, speed sensor, TPS, transmission shift solenoid, gear box problem, TCM, neutral switch, torque converter problem.

The best thing to do is scanning TCM codes.

My 2004 Saturn ion 3 has 2 codes coming up u2105 p0700 an it won't go in drive or reverse what could it be


First off you need to understand your vehicle has several control modules on board . The PCM - engine computer , TCM - transmission control module , SRS - air bag module , Anti theft , antilock brakes , An these modules all are able to talk to each other on a communication network , On your vehicle it happens to be the CAN data bus !
The transmission control module (TCM) uses the controller area network (CAN) to signal the engine control module (ECM) that the TCM is requesting malfunction indicator lamp (MIL) illumination. This happens when the TCM has determined that a failure that affects emissions has occurred in the transmission control system. When the ECM receives the correct message from the TCM, DTC P0700 will set.
Which transmission does your vehicle have ?
Automatic Transaxle AF23-5
OR
Automatic Transmission VT25-E
DTC U2105-U2199
The controller area network (CAN) serial data line is a high speed serial data bus used to communicate information between the engine control module (ECM), body control module (BCM), and the transmission control module (TCM). Typical data-transmission speeds must be high enough to ensure the required real-time response is maintained. The CAN serial data line does not communicate with the scan tool via the data link connector (DLC). CAN serial data information is interpreted by the BCM and transmitted to the serial data line by the BCM.
I suggest you take this to GM dealer or some other ASE certified repair shop .

What does diagnostic code PO0706 and PO700 mean?


OBD II Fault Code
  • OBD II P0706
Fault Code Definition
  • Transmission Range Sensor Circuit Range/Performance
The purpose of the automatic transmission is to match the engine's optimum power and torque characteristics to the driver's desired rate of acceleration and speed by auto-selecting different gear ratios or 'speeds' to power the wheels. The Transmission Range Sensor (also referred to as the PRNDL input and/or neutral safety switch) tells the transmission control module (TCM) and the powertrain control module (PCM) that the transmission is in park, reverse, neutral, drive, low, 2nd, 3rd etc. It is attached directly to the manual valve of transmission, so when the shift lever is moved say from park to drive, the Transmission Range Sensor communicates this critical information to the above mentioned vehicle computer systems.

P0700
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.

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.

P01529 trouble code


Per Chilton's Manual:
P1529 refers to the TCM (Transmission Control Module)

Trouble Code Conditions:
Engine started, engine running, and the PCM did not receive the Customer Request Snapshot Data (MIL and Freeze Frame Data) as requested from the Transmission Control Module (TCM).

Possible Causes:

  • Transmission control module error
  • Check for trouble codes in the transmission control module
It may merely be an isolated incident whereby having the code cleared (some auto parts stores will do a free obdII test and clear most codes) will solve the problem. Otherwise, you may have a bad speed sensor that is throwing the code.
