2007 Compass. What are the probable causes of DTCs P161B and P0700?

which engine? first year is 2007
which one? errors very by , ENGINE!
2.0 L World I4 (gasoline)
2.0 L VW I4 (turbo diesel)
2.2 L OM651 I4 (turbo diesel)
2.4 L World I4 (gasoline)

p07 means transmission errors,. and need a real scan tool to read them ALL full codes, 700 means (have errors in trans scan me the correct and full way)
P161b (p1 means jeep factory codes, power train)

not B161 or P1618
are you sure, it matters.
this means the battery was low
the battery was disonnected
or while cranking at -40F starter overloaded a weak or discharged battery.... (heard the starter run slow, did you?)
it means battery voltage discover too low for any reasons.,.

I have a 2006 charger rt. We had tcm remanned and now the tcm cannot be found by computer. The bas, esp, and tps lights are all on and wont go out. Car wont shift out of first. What should we do?

You will need to reset the computer, find reset button or disconnect battery and cycle through the start and shift process, then leave disconnected, overnight if possible or at least 2 hours, before reconnecting, start and let idle for 5 minutes before shifting to drive, then drive car on open road and give a firm push to the throttle, try manual shift, if no go, inspect tcm.

2009, what engine there, and transmission?>
gas engine, or diesel and what size engine,?
in what country? must i guess, that too?

P means power train.
1xxx are factory codes, 0xxx are fed standard codes.
so that means, only jeep books are accurate here.

where did you see that, (in the cluster) ???????????
or someone scan tool> or someone yelled it over shoulders, and said it wrong./????????????
was it really? and 8? or b? (kinda matters, no?) accurate inputs.
P161b ( see how easy it is to get the code wrong)?

rumor has it as
P161B: Battery disconnect/TCM internal.

clean the battery terminals,
or battery weak, voltage not 12.6vdc rested
or alternator dead, and not charging battery.

to find it, login to Mitchell.
and see all codes

or you disconnected the battery while key was on?
or failed to clear all DTC first
then see if the code comes bacK>?

P1684 code mean 2004 jeep liberty

what engine, gas or diesel.?

tech answer.:
Battery Has Been Disconnected Number of Trips to Set Code: 1
Trouble Code Conditions:
Key on, and the TCM detected that it had been disconnected from the Battery Direct (B+) circuit or its Power Ground circuit. This DTC will also set during the scan tool Quick Battery Disconnect procedure. Note: Due to the integration of the PCM and TCM, the transmission part of the PCM has its own specific power and ground circuits.
Possible Causes:
  • Quick Learn procedure was performed with scan tool
  • TCM battery direct (B+) circuit is open or disconnected
  • TCM power ground circuit is open
  • PCM/TCM was disconnected or it has been replaced
bar room answer.
your battery was dead, or removed, or is was bad.
battery is old and cold starts, allowed it to drop battery voltage way too low, (weak battery, or just too cold out, is this in Klondike?)
left head lights on, and battery drained too low and this code sets.
gal at bar says, what should i do?
answer. sell the car. (nah)
reset the code with an $9 scan tool and drive, see if it comes back.
if comes back and battery seems week. bingo, end of life battery.
