Cannot find this code in the GM code list ,its a auto which i have to admit i have little experiance of .I would suggest you ask a local mechanic with experiance of auto boxes who might hit it with a hammer in the right place and it will be ok ,although from the limited experiance of auto boxes that i have i have often just changed the gearbox computer and its all worked again especially where the computer is mounted under the engine compartment .Sorry for a negative answer here but i just do not know please remember that when i learnt cars were made of metal and the car radio had valves in them

SOURCE: 97 Dodge sensor

It's located under the transmission pan. Once off, you'll see 2 pieces on the passanger side of the valvebody. One is the gov sensor, the other is the gov sonenoid. I recommend replacing them both if your having a governor problem. Remove 4 7/16 bolts and 2 t25 torx screws to remove. Don't tear the gasket on the plate they're in and reuse it. Piece of cake. Trust me, replace them both. 15 year dodge dealer tech.

SOURCE: 2005 Dodge Ram Automatic transmission problem

i had this problem with a friends 05 dodge 3500. i dropped the pan off the transmission, changed the governor pressure soleniod, trans filter and adjusted front and rear bands. also increased transmission pressure. this solved the problem he was having. you will need to have pressure gauges and a few special wrenches to do this yourself. also there is a valve in the transmission lines that has to be drilled out. this work not recommened unless you know what you are doing.

The manufacters code number is p1757 what that mean?

that's a transmission code and it sensing the pressure is not right within the transmission,you need to take it in to a dealer and have them check this driving it like this can cause transmission problems with it ,,P1757....Governor pressure is above 3 psi when 0 psi is requested,this needs to be checked at a dealer ,good luck. PS if i were you id just do a complete service on it ,change the fluid and filter ,have it done at a transmission shop and you get a warranty on their work,that's the best route to go,they,ll also know what to do about the trouble code with it,good luck

Its a transmission code for the governor, the exact code description is " Governor pressure above 3psi in gear with MPH 0.

I had a tranny gasket leak i changed it and about 2 days later engine light came on took it to the local auto parts and put the computer on it. he gave me the code P 1757 said it had something to do with...

Hope this can help:

P1757 Transmission control pressure not equal to target. (Zero pressure problem)

Theory of Operation
The Governor Pressure Control System is used to regulate the governor pressure which controls the shifts for first, second, and third gear. The Governor Pressure Control System test verifies that the requested pressure and the actual pressure are within a predetermined tolerance.

When Monitored:
While the engine is running and the gear selector is in the Drive position.

Set Condition:
This DTC will set if the monitored Governor Pressure is greater than 41.4 kPa (6 psi) for 5 seconds while the gear selector is in the Drive position with the road speed equal to zero - six times during a drive cycle. The transmission oil temperature must be between 23 - 88° C (73 - 190° F).

2000 Dodge Durango - P1757 GOV Pressure Not Equal

I have had to replace the governor on those dodge transmissions, and there is a filtering metal mesh screen around the governor inlet port that seems to always get plugged up with small metal shavings. The governor is located under the transmission pan to the rear of the main valve body.

P1757code p1762 code

P1757 verbiage is "Governor pressure above 3 PSI at 0 MPH". This circuit is continuously monitored with the engine running, not in park or neutral and the MIL not illuminated. The monitor must fail twice to illuminate the MIL. The MIL will illuminate as soon as it fails twice.

If you have any other DTCs set you need to determine their cause first as they could cause this DTC to set. Your idea of deleting the code and driving the vehicle is good because it will ensure that there is a problem, unless it's very intermittent. Based on my experience, this DTC will appear in vehicles that have not had regular transmission filter changes/flushes, in extremely cold weather or some combination of the two.

P1762 - Governor Pressure Sensor (GPS) Offset Volts Too Low Or High. This code will set if the governor pressure is out of range in Park or Neutral for 1.3 seconds. Three consecutive bad 3.0 second tests and sump temperature is greater than 50° F and less than 260° F are required to set the code.
Some of the possible causes are:
  • Transmission fluid level and condition
  • Powertrain Control Module
  • Sensor ground circuit open
  • Intermittent GPS signal
  • 5 volt supply circuit open inside transmission
  • GPS ground circuit open inside transmission
  • Bad GPS
There is little you can do to troubleshoot the system with out a Chrysler DRB scan tool. There are some voltage and resistance tests you can do and I would suggest looking in the Motors Transmission Manual for the proper procedures. You can find the Motors Transmission Manual in the Reference Section of your local Public Libra
