Question about 2001 Mitsubishi Galant

1 Answer

2001 mitsubishi galant 2.4l p0135, p0705, p0715, p0720. Stuck in limp mode.

P0705 popped up after hard shift into reverse out of nowhere. Checked wiring and decided to replace the range sensor. Then needed to replace the shift cable (pain in the balls on this vehicle!!! lol). It's been in limp mode but has come up with the other codes for the range (still), 02 & speed sensors. Cleared the codes the next morning and only the p0705 comes back immediately. Is this wiring? The trans was fine until that first hard shift and it runs fine in limp. I'm not noticing anything that sounds out of the ordinary other than the lack of shifting. I'm a mechanic, but the shop I worked for closed down, thus resulting in losing my job and I have no place to work on this and have already done what I can in my driveway. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thank you very much.

Either fit a manual gearbox or change the control computer for the autobox,no work then do what i did and buy a old van and do kerbside mechanics better than nothing , i know when its raining and cold but at least you will earn a living and buy your spares from a autofactor and not a corner shop

SOURCE: P0705 Transmission range sensor circuit

The sensor should be located where the shifter cable is attached to the trans. It will have a plug with several wires. Usually there will be a way to align it, like a hole with a pin when it should be in neutral.

P 0705 transmission range sensor circuit malfunction code for a 2001 mitsubishi galant can i replace it and where is it located

P0705 - Transmission Range Sensor Malfunction. The park/neutral position (PNP) switch includes a transmission range switch. The transmission range switch detects the selector lever position when the shift lever is in the N or P shift position and sends a signal to the Transmission Control Module (TCM). The possible causes of this are the following: Open or short park/neutral position switch circuit. Poor park/neutral position switch circuit connection. Misadjusted park/neutral position switch. Park/neutral position switch may be faulty. Inspect the pnp switch and replace if needed.

Alarm code # 1750 & 0705 in the scanner

OBD Code P1750 = Solenoid Assembly / Manufacturer Control Transmission.

I tell you it is infact your solenoid box assemble is going. What that does is to tell your transmission when to shift into gears. Im assuming your car is having a hard time shifting gears and juts need replace this part.

OBD Code P0705 = Transmission Range Sensor circuit (PRNDL - Input).

I'll check the Neutral Safety Switch. It's located on the shift shaft of the trans, and is a common problem. Also check the wiring leading to the switch, as it is exposed to road grime and has been known to corrode and melt.

Also can review this DTC P0705.

Hope helps.

2000 mitsubishi mirage 1.8 installed a new radiator- took out for a test drive no leaks. then when i put the car in reverse it jumped then i put it in drive and it would not engage 1 2 3 d . i noticed...

you may have broken the shift cable, that's why it shows the vehicle is in park and won't go in any gear.
put your car in neutral with engine off and try to push it. if it does not move then you know it's in park and the cable is broke
