P1709 computer code what does this code mean

Problem with the gear selector switch for the transmission. Take it to a shop and have them hook up a scanner to read the voltage values of the switch (easiest). Or take it apart and test the switch with a volt/ohm meter. (Hardest)

P 0705 transmission range sensor circuit malfunction code for a 2001 mitsubishi galant can i replace it and where is it located

P0705 - Transmission Range Sensor Malfunction. The park/neutral position (PNP) switch includes a transmission range switch. The transmission range switch detects the selector lever position when the shift lever is in the N or P shift position and sends a signal to the Transmission Control Module (TCM). The possible causes of this are the following: Open or short park/neutral position switch circuit. Poor park/neutral position switch circuit connection. Misadjusted park/neutral position switch. Park/neutral position switch may be faulty. Inspect the pnp switch and replace if needed.

Some 2000-2002 ACCENT vehicles may experience the following conditions: Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) P0722: No pulse generator-B signal Third-gear "Fail-Safe" condition

If the vehicle experiences the above symptoms: Inspect the pulse generator-B and replace if necessary.
Reprogram the TCM using the Hi-Scan Pro

Affected vehicle identification number (VIN) range:

The problem is you will have to take it to the dealer to get the reprogram done.

P2096 - Fuel trim too lean. Usually means vacuum leak. Look for crushed, broken or melted off vacuum hoses near intake manifold. Or an obvious hissing noise at a normal idle. If so replace or repair clear codes your done. If not obvious take carb cleaner spray with nozzle attached car running & go over all vacuum hoses, intake manifold, EGR valve see if idle raises if so you found leak. Repair. Could also be bad oxygen sensor switching bad O2 sensor but rarely.

I have the check engine light on 2day and show is the code p1709 pnp sw out of range how do i fix this ford f150 v6 1999 thanks

To Adjust Sensor:

  1. turn ignition switch to On, put shift lever in reverse and verify that the back up lights come on.
  2. If they do, but the engine can’t be started in Park or Neutral, or it can be started in any other gear besides Park or Neutral, the sensor is probably defective.
  3. If the lights do not come on, disconnect the shift cable from the manual lever, loosen the bolts on the sensor and move sensor slightly until the back-up lights come on, tighten bolts 62-89 in lbs for the 4R70W, 71-88 in lbs for the E4OD and 4R100.
  4. If you can’t get the back up lights to come on by moving the sensor, and the lights are good then the sensor is probably bad
If the sensor is bad replace and reset check engine light. Hope this helps, let me know
