P0700 Transmition Control system is the transmission control module. The transmission control module is a separate computer module, you need to read codes stored on transmission control module. If there are no transmission code stored, then there is a bad Transmission Control Module (TCM) ground circuit or a bad TCM.In that case the ground to TCM must be tested, and TCM eventually replaced. Faults that can cause troubles when shifting from first to second gear are : transmission fluid, speed sensor, TPS, transmission shift solenoid, gear box problem, TCM, neutral switch, torque converter problem.
The p1899 code is for a faulty park/neutral switch which is located on your transmission. Changing it involves disconnecting the wiring harness that goes to it, unbolting the switch, losing some transmission fluid, installing the new switch and topping the fluid off. Big problems arise from having too much or too little fluid in a transmission. Even a small amount or under the proper level can pose a threat. I'd take it to a repair shop and let them handle the job.
According to my source, code 1899 is a problem with the governor pressure sensor. But 4 digit codes are model specific, so you may be right about the selector switch. If the switch tests out to be faulty, it would need to be replaced and the code erased.
P0743 is the Torque Converter Circuit Solenoid.The solenoid plug is on the front of the transmission and has a dark green/white and orange/black wire. The dark green/white should have 12V on it from fuse #10 when the ignition is on. The orange/black is a grounding wire from pin 79 of the powertrain controller which should only be grounded when the car is going over 45 mph or so. You could check that the wire is patent between the plug and the powertrain plug (near 0 ohms). The solenoid is a coil or wire so it would have a low, but non-0 resistance, maybe less than an ohm, but still not 0. To really test it you would need an impedence meter, but a good digital ohmmeter should show it to be slightly more resistance than is shown when you test the resistance of the meter leads themselves.If the resistance, the patency, and the 12V supply is all shown to be OK, then I would suspect the solenoid is not functing properly. If you are getting torque converter lock up when you accelerate slowly from 40 to 50 mph then it is working and the code is false.
P1899 Park or neutral position switch stuck in park or gear.
Recap: P0743 Torque converter clutch circuit faulty, P1899 Position switch to park and nutral stuck.
Check the wire harness and look for any clips may be lose or disconnected and wires condition.
Good luck and keep me posted. be glad to help
