Question about 2000 Dodge Durango
We just got our car shipped from St Louis to Hawaii. My wife is Army, and was moved via car hauler then ship. When she picked it up it would not shift from 1st to 2nd. I drove it and she is correct. If you hammer the throttle and it will pump into 3rd and shift out. I have check all the connections at the trans and at the engine. Relay under the hood for trans is good. When test driving it sound like it has a vacumm leak but all the hose appear on and no holes in them. Of course the fluid levels are fine. I drove this car for 300 miles when I dropped it off and it drove fine now I am at this point.

This is called a 2nd gear limp mode -- it is a safety devise in the computor to prevent interior damage to the transmission -- the cause could be a speed sensor or a blown rear low/reverse seal inside the transmission.

Most likely the second gear section of the transmission has gone bad. There are 3 or 4 different gear sections or assemblies in an automatic transmission, when they go bad, they go bad.

P0700 - Transmission Control System Malfunction.
The code basically what that means is that a malfunction has been detected in the transmission and associated components. There is good news and bad news. The good news is it might be covered under warranty. You didn't say if your vehicle is still under warranty, be aware that you may still have warranty coverage on this since your car is just 3 years old. The bad news is that the P0700 code really means that there are transmission-specific codes that you can't access with a regular code reader. There is a part called a TCM - transmission control module that works in a similar way to your PCM. The TCM handles the transmission electrical "stuff" and it stores further transmission codes.
If you want to pursue the issue yourself, you'll need to get your hands on a higher end code reader, or take it to the dealer or a transmission shop to get the actual transmission trouble codes read. Personally we recommend you get a shop to read those codes for you. The other codes are communication codes, we recommend you clear those codes after you fix the P0700 code and see if they come back, they could be related to the "main" transmission issue. The other good news is the fix for this may just be a software update that the dealer can do.
P1728 - Transmission Slip Error
THis code indicates that the transmission is slipping. When the computer that controls the transmission detects a fault code like P1728, it will put the transmission into a "limp" mode. When the code is cleared and the transmission will function properly until the slippage occurs again. To resolve this problem, you will need to get your transmission overhauled.
Hope help with this.
