2002 Dodge Intrepid engine light on

Engine light came on and i had it read at autozone, transaxel module is what it said so i took the code with me to a shop. They said they had to use there code reader and charged me $100. Then said that i needed a torc converter and it will cost me $1600.(which by the way also was the same place that had changed my oil 2 days before engine light came on) I took it to another shop down the road and they said they would fix my car for me for $500 and said it was a valve or something like that but anyways i paid to get the problem fixed and the check engine light came back on and car sputters and runs crapy. I bought the car a year ago with only 45,000 miles on it. I've already paid all these shops who claim know how to work on cars but don't fix the problem. I'm not rich and can't take it to a dealership and fed up with being ripped off and lied to. Does anyone know what a transaxel module is? Well i don't but been told many different things and paid for the car to be fixed. I thought that's what a code reader is for, to tell you the problem. What do you do? Or am i just F*****?

Trans axle module controls slip between wheels.
Finding a good shop is one of the hardest parts of owning a car.
Hint if the mechanic refers to his computer as a "code reader" be suspisious.
A code reader is exactly that -- it just reads codes
A scanner can run system tests, read codes, and comunicate with cars PCM. A code reader is CHEAP my scanner was $1200 and that was a steal.
Never hesitate to get other estimates. Many shops will waive the scanning charge if you get the work done there.

I have a 2004 Dodge Intrepid SE and the check engine light has been on for several days. I took it to Auto Zone and they plugged in their tester. They gave me the following codes - P1776 and P0700. Please...

I recommend changing your transmission fluid to see if that helps solve the issue....

Otherwise, you may have to change the solenoid pack as the screen filter in it will clog, and stick the solenoids.

2002 Dodge Intrepid- check engine light came on gave me trouble code PO700?

This code indicates an automatic transmission control problem. The presence of this code means that the transmission control module or TCM has detected a fault and relayed it to the PCM. It could be a TCM related solenoid has failed or is damaged or the TCM itself could be faulty. Best wishes.

Is there any way to reset the check engine (obd)light on a 2002 dodge intrepid?

Two ways: 1. Disconnect the negative battery cable, then try to start - that will reset the light, but also reset the radio, clock, etc. 2. Go to an Autozone store. They will reset it for free and will even tell you the code that caused it.

2002 dodge intrepid code reads transaxel module

REPORT THAT SHOP TO BBB. If they charged you and didnt fix it they stole your money. If a fix may not fix the car you should be told upfront.
Sounds like you will need a shop that has a scanner capable of transmission fault testing.
Most genisys and snap-on scanners have this capability.

My 2002 Dodge intrepid has it engine light on

The MAP sensor and Knock Sensor are both very easily replaced. A better scanner will tell you which sensor is going bad on your transmission. An Autozone code reader will not tell you which sensor on the trans. is acting up. Most sensors on your trans. are very easity replaced as well. They just screw in and plug it. It's worth paying to get a "real" scan done. The trans. sensors are inexpensive and you can replace any other your listed sensors yourself.
