Re: codes given are p0700 and p1781. Anyone know what...
The Transmission shop lacks the skills and tools need to do the job. It's best to call around for a shop that has a proper scanner to talk to the TCM computer. The real trouble codes are in there. The best place would be a shop that has a ASE mechanic on duty or the Dealership.
Here what the two codes means:
P0700 Transmission Control System Malfunction
It means you have a trans control problem in the trans computer. You will need to get it on a trans capable scanner to see what the trans code or problem is.
the P1781 is set during engine start up when the ECM & TCM do not communicate properly during initial power up. It will only illuminate the service light if the condition occurs in 2 consecutive start cycles, but the DTC will be stored in the failure records after the first cycle.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

What does this mean?
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.
When the code P0700 is set in the Powertrain Computer, it means that the Powertrain Computer or PCM is seeing greater than a specified RPM difference between the rotational speed of the Input RPM Sensor and the Transmission Output RPM Sensor. This can occur during shifting or when driving at steady speeds in the same gear. It often implies that the transmission is slipping. Symptoms
Check Engine Light will illuminate
Vehicle will not shift properly
Decrease in fuel economy
In unusual cases, there are no adverse conditions noticed by the driver
In some cases, there may be performance problems, such as dying when coming to a stop after driving on the freeway and/or misfire-like symptoms
Common Problems That Trigger the P0700 Code
Defective Shift Solenoids
Defective Engine Coolant Temperature Sensor
Defective Valve Body
Dirty transmission fluid that restricts the hydraulic passages
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.

DTC P0113 - Intake Air Temperature Sensor High Voltage To diag this code you will need a volt/ohm meter. Need to check for 5 volt reference in to sensor from PCM, and ground side of sensor to PCM. Also, check carefully the wires at the sensor. The wires may be broken inside the insulation, right at the connector of the sensor. Pull on each wire slightly and see if it starts stretch. If it does, then the wire is broke inside the insulation, and will need to be repaired.
DTC P0700 - EATX ControllerIs Is a generic transmission control code. This code lets you know that a specific failure code is stored in the TCM (Transmission Control Module) and needs to be retreived with a diagnostic scanner with TCM reading capabilities. It may or may not be related to the ROM failure in the ECM (Engine Control Module).
DTC P1781 - Engine Torque Signal Circuit
This code is set during engine start up when the ECM and TCM do not communicate
properly during initial power up. It will only illuminate the service
light if the condition occurs in 2 consecutive start cycles, but the DTC
will be stored in the failure records after the first cycle.
p1781 is manufacturer control transmission, p0731 is gear 1 ratio incorrect, p1784 is manufacturer control transmission, p0700 is trans, control system malfunction. all of these codes refer to tranny.This code normally points to a faulty transmission control module, but this is an expensive part and you should have an experienced Dodge technician diagnose the problem first. or a transmission specialist. the other codes are probably associated with the p0700 code. have a good day !
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.
The engine coolant temperature (ECT) sensor is a variable resistor, that measures the temperature of the engine coolant. The ECT sensor has a signal circuit and a low reference circuit. The engine control module (ECM) supplies 5 volts to the ECT signal circuit, and a ground for the ECT low reference circuit. When the ECT is cold, the sensor resistance is high. When the ECT increases, the sensor resistance decreases. With high sensor resistance, the ECM detects a high voltage on the ECT signal circuit. With lower sensor resistance, the ECM detects a lower voltage on the ECT signal circuit. If the ECM detects an excessively high ECT signal voltage, which is a low temperature indication, DTC P0118 sets.
• If a short to a separate 5-volt source occurs this DTC may set.
• Use the Temperature vs Resistance table to test the ECT sensor at various temperature levels to evaluate the possibility of a skewed sensor. A skewed sensor could result in poor driveability concerns
Sounds like you need a new coolant temp. sensor , but test it ! Videos on youtube showing how to do it .
To improve shift feel, the transmission control module (TCM) may request that the engine control module (ECM) reduce engine torque during shift events. When such a request is received, the ECM responds by retarding the base ignition timing and notifying the TCM that the request has succeeded. If the ECM is unable to comply with the request, the ECM sends the TCM a message that the request has failed.
The torque reduction request is sent to the ECM through a communication network called the controller area network (CAN). Two circuits are used to communicate CAN data between the ECM and TCM. A fault in the CAN will not cause DTC P1781 to set by itself. If a CAN fault occurs, other DTCs will set before DTC P1781.
When the TCM receives a torque reduction failure message from the ECM, then DTC P1781 will set. DTC P1781 is a type A DTC.
I use a site that deals with nothing but codes for automobiles, and this is what they gave me for your year, make and model of your car. PO128 is Electrical System failure. P1781 is Engine Torque Signal Circuit, and PO700 is Engine and Cooling. If you gave me the right codes, this is the answer Chevy gave me. hope this helps
P0700 will come up with most all codes or faults to do with a transmission,P1781 is 4X4 switch out of range,I have never heard of a P1721 but a P0721 is trans output sensor range or performance.If the computer isn't getting a output speed it doesn't know that it should shift.I would check all your wiring down around the trans area looking for broken or grounded wires if ok have the speed sensor checked for being opened.
There are a couple of bulletins from GM on valves causing these codes. # 05-06-01-030D and #PIP3063C are the bulletin #'s you need to have them look at. They are related to the valves in the cylinder head causing your exact symptoms. You should contact another dealer or GM customer assistance with this info. Good Luck
