Hi BJCman,

Manual Tranny or Auto Tranny?

if it is Auto, i would check the transmission solenoid and the gear selector. This is usually the issue if those parts are at fault.

hope this helps.

Every time I start my 06 equinox the 10 amp backup fuse blows. When I try to restart the car its no crank no start. When I replace fuse it starts fine again. Why is 10amp backup fuse blowing?

A short circuit in the wiring . Do you you know how to test automotive electrical circuits ?
10 amp backup fuse ?????? back up lights ? Video's on youtube showing how to find an fix a short . Park neutral safety switch
The transaxle control module (TCM) primarily controls shift points and lockup engagement.
The transaxle is controlled by an electronic shift system. The TCM processes input signals. From the information received, the TCM controls the transaxle hydraulic system.
The electronic shift system consists of the following components:
• Shift Solenoid (SS1 and SS2)
• Pressure Control Solenoid (PSC)
• Lockup Solenoid
• Input Shaft Speed (ISS) Sensor
• Output Shaft Speed (OSS) Sensor
• Transmission Fluid Temperature (TFT) Sensor
• Park/Neutral Position (PNP) Switch

Have the vehicle checked for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes
When the TCM detects an invalid combination of TR switch signals, then DTC P0705 sets. DTC P0705 is a type A DTC.

PNP Switch

The transmission range (TR) switch is part of the park/neutral position and back-up lamp switch assembly and is mounted on the transmission manual shaft. The TR switch is a multi-signal switch. The transmission control module (TCM) supplies voltage to the TR switch. Each gear selector lever position grounds one or more of the signal circuits in a unique pattern. In order to determine the gear range selected by the driver, the TCM compares the voltage combination on the signal circuits to a TR switch combination table stored in memory. Refer to Transmission Range Switch Logic .

Dtc 0700 jerks when shifting from reverse to drive

The transaxle Control Module (TCM) monitors the malfunction of sensors and actuators relating to transaxle 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 transaxle controls.

I have a 2001 dodge grand caravan with a transmission code 700,731,732,733 what is the fix

These codes mean 'incorrect gear ratio' referencing all four forward gears. Try to drain and flush the transaxle. Usually this means the computer can't shift the gear modulator and the line pressure is too low - either because the transaxle is low on fluid or the fluid is too weak to allow proper line pressure. Otherwise the PCM could be faulty - any other codes present?

Number 18 trouble shooting code

18 = Cam Crank Problem
36 = Transaxle Shift Problem

Hope this helps. - Jarett

The transaxle shift problem I am unfamiliar with, but the cam crank problem is probably either your Camshaft Position sensor, or Crankshaft Position Sensor.
