If you are technically minded buy a bluetooth OBD2 plug and download Torque Pro Android app. This will allow you to reset the codes yourself and ensure there is a genuine fault and not an intermittent issue. Cost was around $30AUS.

SOURCE: I have a 1992 volvo 960 and the transmission needs to be fixed

The tranmission is shared with the Toyota Cressida 82-87 model (that's the A43DE in Toyota speak if yours is a AW30-43) Yours is either a AW30-43 or AW30-40. Go to Wikipedia to get the equvalent of yours. Try Aisin Warner on Wikipedia. No need to pay top dollar at Volvo wreckers when a Toyota one will fit (just swap the bell housing and switches/controls) Remember the labour to swap is only three hours just make sure you totally flush the old fluid out (7.5 litres) & new front & rear seals go on the replacement gearbox and that the extension housing bushing is OK. Good luck.

SOURCE: I have a 2000 Volvo s40. Yesterday my automatic

I would change out the transmission fluid and put some transmission additives in there, see how the transmission shifts after that. Worse case have the transmission rebuilt.

The struts are about $150 apiece plus labor. If the car runs fine besides those two problems I would fix it and keep it, it's alot cheaper than a car payment.

SOURCE: My car has an orange

  1. The flashing arrow indicates a fault code has been set in the Transmission Control Module (TCM).
  2. With the key in the ignition and turned on, foot on the brake pedal, move the gear shift lever thru the range of gears, back and forth, do this about 20 times. Then try to start.
To Check the Codes on the TCM:
  1. Go to the diagnostic test box (front right side under the hood)test box A plug the pigtail into A-1 and begin reading and recording the codes.
  2. Ignition in on position. Stored Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTCs) can be read off and erased in DTM 1.
  3. A short press on the button on the DLC will start the DTC read-off procedure.
  4. If the control module replies by flashing code 1-1-1 no faults have been registered, so no DTCs have been stored.
  5. If the control module replies using any other flashing code sequence it is a DTC that has been stored.
If you are unable to check the codes yourself, have a Volve dealer check the codes on the TCM to find out what is failing.

If you can get the code off of the TCM, here is a site with a list of the codes and their meanings:

The procedure for erasing stored DTCs is as follows:
  1. Ignition ON
  2. Press the button on the DLC and hold down for more than five seconds. Release the button.
    Wait for the LED to light.
  3. Press the button again and hold down for more than five seconds. Release the button.
  4. Make sure that the DTC's have been cleared by reading off the DTCs again.
  5. Also you can disconnect the battery for 5 minutes and see if that will clear the codes. Now at this point you will not be able to read those codes.

I get code p0700 after an OBDII scan.

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 best thing to do is scanning TCM codes.

What is wrong with a 2001 Volvo SD40 1.9t if it gives a code P0700 TCP Mil Request

That means there is an electronic fault in the transmission and the transmission control module has requested the service engine light to come on. You'll need to use a scan tool that can communicate with transmission controller in order to diagnose the issue.

What is code p0727

Possible causes
- Faulty Crankshaft Position (CKP) Sensor
- Crankshaft Position (CKP) Sensor harness is open or shorted
- Crankshaft Position (CKP) Sensor circuit poor electrical connection
- Communication error between the Engine Control Module (ECM) and Transmission Control Module (TCM)

The P0727 Codes is triggered when the TCM receives no signal from the ECM.
Possible symptoms
- Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light)
P0727 Description
The Engine Control Module (ECM) monitors the engine speed through the Crankshaft Position (CKP) sensor with the engine running, and send signal to the Transmission Control Module (TCM).

P 0733 code what does that mean

You could be more specific with the issue:
  • Transmission type (Manual/Automatic)?
  • How did this issue appear?
  • Does the car change gears normally?
Your car seems to be an automatic transmission model?
So the fault code is "Gear 3 Incorrect Ratio"

This means that you may have:
  • Low transmission fluid level or dirty transmission fluid
  • Faulty or dirty shift solenoids
  • Transmission mechanical problems
  • Transmission hydraulic control circuit issue

2007 chevy colorada code p0700 and p0717

input speed sensor for transmission is faulty which will throw the 717 code and when it does it will also tell "root" TCM (transaxle control module) to include the 700 code.
700 happens when it detects an issue with the TCM.
717 happens when the sensor is bad.
- Faulty Transmission Speed Sensor
- Transmission Speed Sensor harness is open or shorted
- Transmission Speed Sensor circuit poor electrical connection

code p0717 refers to turbine shaft speed (TSS) sensor--no signal===causes wiring--TSS sensor---ECM/TCM
code p1618 refers to transmission control module (TCM) MIL request==causes-- automatic transmission malfunction. I would say that you have 2 faults On is a turbine sensor that would account for the speed variation. As for the other have a pressure test done on the box to check for internal failures. Check for wiring to the TCM and see if the TCM can be tested .. Have an reputable auto transmission shop do the tests

Loss of power, transmission issues

code p0700 refers to transmission control system/MIL --malfunction===causes --wiring ---TCM (1)
code po740 refers to torque converter clutch (TCC) solenoid--circuit malfunction===causes--wiring--TCC solenoid--ECM/TCM (transmission control module) (again)
code p0871 refers to transmission fluid pressure (TFP) sensor C -range/ performance problem==causes---wiring--poor connection--TFP sensor--ECM /TCM (yet again)
code p0734 refers to gear 3 ratio (po374 is gear ratio 4) incorrect ratio===causes --wiring--TR sensor/switch--shift solenoids--transmission mechanical fault (causes are the same for po733&734)
code po846 refers to transmission fluid pressure (TFP) sensor B-range/ performance problem===causes ---wiring--poor connection--TFP sensor--ECM/TCM (again). Give the clutch a miss as you still have 1st gear and if the clutch is not working you will not be going any where. Have a pressure test done on the transmission to check for internal mechanical failures (pump ). The rest are sensors are wiring connections , sensor and TCM. My bet is the TCM unit. Have it checked out. What ever you do treat any suggestion of a new transmission with a grain of salt until you are shown proof positive that you need one.
