SOURCE: 2002 chrysler 300m error codes p0740 and p0700

700 tells you that there has been a "transmission control circuit malfunction", and 740 basically pinpoints the possible culprit, which is "Torque converter clutch control circuit malfunction". If you don't notice any difference in the way the transmission is shifting, especially when you are at cruising speed on highway, or you've basically reached the speed your going to travel at, and are no longer accelerating, your converter normally goes into "lock-up" and your engine RPM's will drop by approx, 200-300 RPM's. When your driving it basically feels like transmission shifted again, slightly. If all feels well, it may just be a one time thing, but being how transmissions are somewhat temperamental, as well as expensive to repair when big problems occur, I would certainly consider getting it in to a dealer for diagnosis at least, and see what they come up with, as it may only be a bad switch, or bad, corroded connection causing the codes. Remember, if it sounds like an expensive,extensive repair, then simply get all the info, and either stop elsewhere for diagnosis of same problem, (without telling them it's already been diagnosed) and see what second opinion has to say. If in doubt after that, get back to us, with diagnosis results, and we'll be glad to help you decide from there. One thing you may want to consider though, is a transmission service, (oil and filter change) if it hasn't been done in a while, just as a preventative maintenance thing. Changing of oil and filter in those transmissions at regular intervals, is a good way of extending the life of them. I recommend the new ,Autopar ATF4 transmission oil, which is more expensive, but guaranteed to last for lifetime under normal driving conditions. Chrysler/Autopar products tend to work better with it, and new filter, although there are many mechanics that will argue that fact, there are just as many mechanics and owners who have seen other oils cause problems, and when they switch to Autopar, those problems disappeared.

SOURCE: I got a p0700 code which is trans control system

this is the TCM (transmission control module) telling the PCM (powertrain control module) to turn on the check engine light due to a fault in the auto trans, the code for the fault is stored in the TCM, to get this cheched you need to have the dealer run a TCM fault code test.

I have a 1998 dodge caravan 3.3L fault codes p0500 p0700 p0720 p0715, how do I repair and replace sensors to pass smog test


Follow the links for each fault code.
http://www.obd-codes.com/p0500
P0700 Transmission Control System Malfunction
P0720 Output Speed Sensor Circuit Malfunction
P0715 sets when there is an error in the transmission's input speed sensor signal. On the front of the trans there is an input and output speed sensor that the trans controller looks at for shifting control.

While the code could have set because of a wiring or connection problem, it's almost surely the sensor. Input speed sensor failures are not uncommon.

The input speed sensor is mounted right on the front of the trans directly under where the cooler lines attach. It threads directly in and has a 1" hex for a socket for removal. If the wiring and connection look visibly ok then I would recommend replacing the sensor

My dodge caravan 3.3L shows 5 malfunction codes what do they mean po455 po846 po500 po700 po732


P0455 = Evap leak monitor large leak detected.
This code usually means the gas cap may have been loose or needs the rubber gasket.

P0500 = No vehicle speed sensor signal.
Vehicle speed sensor is located on the transmission near one of the axle shafts (it may need replacing).

P0700 = EATX controller DTC present.
This simply means you have transmission related codes.

P0732 = Gear ratio error in 2nd gear.
This code is of some concern, it means the transmission is slipping in 2nd gear. However the trans may be in limp mode due to the speed sensor code (limp mode means the trans starts out in second gear in order to at least get to a mechanic). The first thing I would do is have these codes cleared as there may be absolutely nothing wrong with the transmission (especially if you pull the trans dip stick and the fluid does not have a burnt smell. The vehicle should drive normally after that. If the check engine light comes back, have the codes scanned ASAP (before any other unrelated code sets). Chances are it may be the output speed sensor if this happens (easy fix). Hope this helps

I have code p0700


The trans axle Control Module (TCM) monitors the malfunction of sensors and actuators relating to trans axle control. When the TCM detects a malfunction with the control, a signal is send to the Engine Control Module (ECM) to trigger the Engine Light or Service Engine Soon light. The ECM stores the P0700 code and it means the TCM detected a malfunction with the trans axle controls.
Possible Causes - Shorted or open circuit within transmission control module (TCM)
- Failure of trans axle control module
Since the P0700 is just and informative code, check the TCM for more codes to resolve the problem.

What does these codes mean P1781, P0731, P1784 AND P0700 AND HOW DO I FIX THEM.


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 !

Car does not run ,I check the code ,it is P0700


Because it is not starting, you should replace the Crankshaft sensor (above the oil filter, back of the engine)-it will cause a P0700-I have a 99 SL2, 178,000 miles


DTC) CODE # P0700....Transmission Control System (MIL Request)
Translation: Transmission Control Module (TCM) Malfunction or Failure. P0700 Information Code The Transaxle Control Module (TCM) monitors the malfunction of sensors and actuators relating to transaxle control. If any malfunction is detected, the TCM informs the PCM by sending a signal (P0700 code). P0700 means that a code has been set in the TCM. This code is for information ONLY. If this code is present, check for transaxle codes. So basically, the P0700 code is telling you to check the TCM for a transaxle DTC. The TCM can not turn on the check engine light so it has the PCM do it. The dealer probably saw the code P0700 and went to the TCM and pulled out the code stored there telling them the Transmission Solenoid Assembly (TSA) is bad. This is a good example of understanding what the codes actually mean. If the manual you looked at said the TCM is bad and to replace the TCM when you see a P0700, then it is wrong.

P0700 is just to tell you there is a trans code stored . P1794 is a vehicle speed sensor problem or output speed sensor problem depending on the trans type. P0501 is a body computer code for no vehicle speed signal.I would replace the output speed sensor.

Whaat does code P0700 mean


P0700 is a PCM trouble code that basicly says there is more trouble codes in the trans controller side of the PCM.
In order to find out what those codes are you will need a scan tool and then once you have the codes further diagnois can be done.
depending on what codes come out of the trans controler it could mean something simple like
a bad speed sensor or some kind of bad like a loss of prime. gear ratio error codes can be caused by faulty sensors.

2001 pt cruiser engine light code P0700/ p1284


well p0700 is a transmission code and the related repair on alldat is a error in tcm module! sounds like a bad computer but i couldn't say unless i tested it myself! sorry for lack of info and the other code was not in the list but there was a 1294 and that is a "target idle not reached" so i would be looking at the throttle body and clean it and make sure nothing is binding and aso vacume leaks throught the motor! good luck

Transmissions not shifting out of second gear


The 700's just are notifications that the trans controller has found the previously noted fault codes.

I would check the wiring and if no obvious wire damage is present then replace the output speed sensor. The sensor is on the left side of the trans, about midline height, all the way at the very rear of that side. There is a an input turbine sensor at the front end of the trans, same side, same level that is comparable in appearance. 

Not comcern about the P1684, but your going to have to bring it in to a tramsmission shop to have the PCM scaned unless you have more CODES you have not mentioned.

The dark blue/black wire should be continuous at pin 13 and the light green/white to pin 14 of the trans controller if you want to verify the wiring. The trans controller has a 60-way plug and is located on the left front side shield of the engine compartment, forward of the power distribution box and abs controller if you have that as well.

Look for transmission codes from P0700 to P0899  which should pin point the problem and get you out of the limp mode.
Look for other codes P0500 to P0599 which is related to the speed controls and idle control sytem which is common to be related to your problem.
Good luck and hope this helps.
