Expensive ?? Yes so try a Salvage yard and easy to fix Yes. It's located on the passenger side fender just back ot the head light with a large wire harness attached to it. Check the harness for any corrosion and the fuses under the dash, drivers side. The other thing to is a bad Vehicle Velocity Sensor (VVS) so double check the DTC Codes. The VVS is easy to replace and cheaper then a new TCM. Good luck and hope this helps. Keep me posted ne glad to help.

02 Dodge Stratus for the 2.4 engine pO700 po733


P0700 is simply the ecm recognising that the tcm (tranny) has an error code stored/registered. The one to worry about is your p0733 code. This code means the tcm detected a gear ratio error in third gear. There's 5 main possible causes. Simple/cheap -> expensive/difficult. .. Low or dirty ATF. Add fluid if low or change fluid and filter If burnt smelling or dirty/discolored. Shifting solenoid . Check or have tested the shifting solenoids . They control fluid flow and transfer to various clutch packs for gears. Hydraulic control circuit and mechanical failure. Both of these require full rebuild. Control circuit is expensive and hard to get to . Mechanicalso is usually either a worn out/pourly adjusted clutch pack causing the gear to slip or a failing torque converter.

When the light comes on while driving does it shift funny?
You may only need a TCR (transmission Control relay).
and it is also likely a wiring issue to the tcm or the tcm relay, check the speed sensors as well, I've fixed 100's of those at the dealer!

1998 Chrysler Sebring convertible Not shifting into drive check engine light came on, error code PO715


DTC P0715 CHRYSLER - Input Speed Sensor 1 Circuit
P0715 is detected when TCM or ECM does not receive the proper signal from the sensor.

The input speed sensor detects the primary pulley revolution speed and sends a signal to the Transmission Control Module (TCM) and Engine Control Module (ECM).

Symptoms
- Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light)
- Possible shifting problems

Possible causes
- Transmission speed sensor circuit is open or shorted.
- Poor transmission speed sensor circuit connection
- Faulty transmission speed sensor

Hope this clues helps to solve it.

Ford trauras trouble code 732 - was told transmission code 732 was being produced, what does a code 732 say?


P0732 FORD - Incorrect Second Gear Ratio
Transmission in second gear and the ECM detected an incorrect gear ration. This diagnosis monitors actual gear position by checking the torque converter slip ratio calculated by Transmission Control Module (TCM) as follows:

Torque converter slip ratio = A x C/B

A: Output shaft revolution signal from revolution sensor
B: Engine speed signal from Engine Control Module (ECM)
C: Gear ratio determined as gear position which TCM supposes

If the actual gear position is higher than the position (2nd) supposed by TCM, the slip ratio will be more than normal. In case the ratio exceeds the specified value, TCM judges this diagnosis malfunction.

Symptoms
- Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light)
- Incorrect transmission shifting

Possible causes
- Low transmission fluid level
- Dirty transmission fluid
- Shift solenoids
- Transmission mechanical problems
- Transmission hydraulic control circuit

Tech notes
Start by inspecting the transmission fluid level and condition, and change fluid if necessary.


Hope helps.

I recently had to have the transmission rebuilt. When the mechanic was finishing up he told me that it needed a TCM as well. After that it still ran rough, shaking and all. My check engine light has been...


A 2002 is not an "older car".
You should easily be able to get 15 years out of any decent car.

But the PCM and TCM are not likely bad.

First start with a simple tuneup, with plugs, wires, etc.
Then you try diagnostics on the fuel injection, such as temp, O2, and air mass sensors, as well as filter, fuel pressure, etc.
Then check things like ERG valve, fuel vapor purge valve, etc.

The last thing you do is give up and buy new control modules.

I need to know where the TCM is & Shift Solenoid "C"on 04 Kia Rio


The TCM is stuffed up in the drivers side dash just left of the steering column on this disposable vehicle. There are 2 modules there. One is a pcm and the other is a tcm. The onewith the large single black plug is the TCM.
