This has happened to me also and after having my mechanic check it out several times it was discovered a sensor had gone out. It was going to cost close to $140 to replace. I ask what would happen if I didn't replace it and he said "nothing, your check engine light will just stay on" So, we've driven it for the past two years with the check engine light on with no problems.

My 1999 dogde caravan stays on first shift. What should the problem be?


The default gear for your caravan when there is a transmission issue is second gear. If it is stuck in second gear than the check engine light should be on. The OBDII code stored in the PCM should be a P0700. This code is to let you know there are transmission codes stored in the TCM. You will need a high end scan tool to get those codes. Once you know those codes you will have a much better idea of what is causing the transmission problems. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using FixYa.com!

2005 dodge grand caravan...engine light on and off, went to autozone diagnostic. replaced upstream 02, last year replaced downstream...engine light came back on. need help!


When "check engine" litgh tun on, the PCM (computer) is warning that some fault code is stored there. Autozone could scanned your PCM and show exactly what fault codes is there; if your O2 sensors was replaced, I assuming that they can see this codes... so, they reset and delete all codes stored there? Scanned the PCM after this change?

Check engine light is on with code p1698 what is this code


The code P1698 is: No CCD messages from TCM. That means the communication between the Transmission Control Module and the Power Control Module is lost. Sometimes this happens when a PCM, or TCM is replaced without being flashed, a bad connection at the PCM, TCM, or a bad TCM. Hope this helps.

PO700 PO740, check engine light on. Run a test on


PO700 is a code telling you there are codes in the TCM of some late model cars where the Transmission control module has lost connection to the PCM the vehicals main computer , And basically it happens when the TCM has a issue within itself or the transmission that sets a code and it sends a request for the PCM to illuminate the SES or CHECK engine light.
PO740 is a chrystler specific code that involves your Tourqe Converter Clutch Circuit (specifically The TCC solenoid) this code if not repaired quickly could cause major transmission problems....slipping out of gear....not shifting from first to second properly and just all around trans problems...eventually leading to no shifting at all...I highly recommend fixing it soon.

1999 Dodge Caravan with a code 23. What does that


OBD-II Trouble Code Technical Description
A P0020-023 code refers to the VVT (variable valve timing) or VCT (variable camshaft timing) components and the car's PCM (powertrain control module). That consists of an oil control valve (OCV), also called a solenoid valve and other components. Basically the check engine light and associated P0020-023 trouble code means that the voltage in the circuit has fallen below a set limit for a specific amount of time (varies by make/model/engine). Bank 2 is the side of the engine that doesn't contain cylinder #1.

Causes
A code P0020-023 may mean that one or more of the following has happened:
  • Faulty oil control valve (OCV)
  • Open or short in the VVT/VCT circuit
  • Open or short in the OCV / solenoid valve
  • Damaged computer (PCM)
Possible Solutions
Some recommended troubleshooting and repair steps are:
  • Carefully inspect the Bank 2 VVT/VCT system circuit wiring and connectors, repair as required
  • With a warm engine, test the operation of the OCV, replace/repair as needed

On 1996 dodge grand caravan code 42 from blinks from chedk engine light.


A code 42 is the Auto Shutdown Relay Control Circuit....The ASD relay is located under the hood in the Power Distribution Center next to the battery. Change the ASD relay, that should fix you up. If that doesn't work...you might have to check the PCM. But replacing the ASD relay should do it.

Po700 and p1776


P0700 is EATX code present. It simply means that the engine computer has noticed that the transmission computer has a dtc in it. This causes the Pcm (engine computer) to turn the check engine light on. You will need to have the TCM (trans computer) checked for codes to know what to diagnose.

error code P1776 - Replace rear solenoid switch

Likely both related The P1776 probably kicked off the P0700 notification.

Hope that helps! Happy Motoring!
