Replace the rear output speed sensor, that is what the computer uses to know when to shift the transmission into onverdrive.

It could easily just be a sensor, but if you don't know much about transmissions, you are best served to take it to a transmission shop and let them fix it. Now days, transmissions are very hard to work on yourself.

How to fix code 700 on my 2003 dodge Durango can't find the sensor


Well there is no sensor.
Code 700 is a general fault with the transmission control module.
It could be a problem with the module, or the wiring between the module and the transmission, or between the module and the engine computer. Usually there are more codes to go with a code 700.

2000 durango running rough at idle and higher rpms, no codes, transmission shifting out on high side, 1st gear? 5.9L R/T package


No dash lights at all? Try replacing your speed sensor on your rear differential. Its a very small sensor on the top of the diff case. They are very cheap to replace so you wont be out much money if this solution doesnt work.

2004 Durango dies and shifts weird


I will try to help..ihave a 2000 dodge durango with the 4.7 v8..My trans started shifting funny and the rpm's would go up to 2000+rpm when i was driving, which means i was getting really crappy gas mileage at 40mph..took it to shop, engine light on,put it on machine to diagnose..got a generic p0700 code plus a couple others..code basically says tranny is fn up..
Try this a cheap fix first that worked for me..on the transmission,driver side there are two sensors..input/output transmission speed sensors..to be exact..they send info to computer to regulate shift points in trans..upshift and downshift..replace them both although one may be the culprit..cost at the dealer here in Delaware was $40.72 for one..there is one bolt(8mm)and one electrical connection to each..time to replace both about 15minutes you don't even have to jack up truck but you will have to get underneath.

Hope this helps and good luck..if you change them and find the tranny shifting properly..cycling the on and off switch will eventually turn off the engine light..just drive it normally i mean..go here shut it off..get back in start it up and go..it will go out..good luck

2000 dodge durango not shifting right


With my personal experience that I have in all the vehicles with similar problems the solution is the same. Transmission tune-up believe me, the fluid is low or the filter is clogged and the fluid has lost its lubricity that's all. Do not get convinced you need a new transmission or some other sensor. Its more economic to give it a tune-up before assuming anything else is wrong with the vehicle. Check my advice on a trans tune-up. If you already replaced sensors and messed with whatever else once you do the tune-up it might not be as new. Because things that affect the transmission were tampered with. But after the tune-up you will be able to drive it with no worries. First off all check the trans fluid level, if low find the leak, repair it if any then do the tune-up. If the fluid is low and you find red oil underneath the radiator, engine or transmission let me know.

2000 durango 4.7 v8 tranny slip or something. Plzz help!!!


First thing you want to do, is get all that additive stuff out of there & get new filter & proper fluid in there. Mopar ATF 4. then disconnect battery for minute or 2 & start fresh as far as storing trouble codes goes. Chrysler transmissions don't react well to improper fluids or additives. If it starts to act up again, or check engine light comes on, have it scanned for codes at Autozone, or Pep boys & see what codes if any, come up. Don't prolong any transmission problem, as it will only cost you more in the end, if you don't take care of it right away.
