Question about 2003 Dodge Neon
I have a 2003 dodge neon, the engine light came on but we couldnt find a problem soi unhooked the battery to reset. it was fine we drove this car 1100 miles to florida. since we have been here the engine light keeps comming on and now when it comes on it wont shift out of 1st gear. you could reset it and it would shift for a little bit. we took it to discount to have a diagnostic ran it through back the speed sensor. i replaced both speed sensors input and output. now the engine light stays on, it wont reset at all it wont shift and now also the speedometer will not work. we ran another diagnostic and now it is spitting out PO700 (transaxle control system malfunction) ????????????
You dont have to pull the tranny to fix this. Some so called "experts" on here shouldnt be giving advice if they dont know. The solenoid pack is located in the front the transmission just below the air filter and in front of the input speed sensor you just replaced. Unbolt the connector with a 10mm socket then the bolts connecting to the tranny. Replace with a new one 140 bux or close(get a new one). Installation is vice versa. Easy fix for any person who is mechanically inclined. Always get a second or third opinion when asking a thousand dollar question on any website. Some people think they know....but they dont.

TCM codes usually mean that the actual computer in the transmission is going out. The tranny usually need to be removed from the Neon because to get to the TCM you must dissasemble the pump, torque converter, etc to get to it. From my experience on sending several Neons out to a transmission shop this seems to be the culprit. The Not shifting out of first gear is what Chrysler Techs like to call "Limp Mode" so one could "limp" it into the shop...good luck with this.

Put your old parts back in, seems as you had less problems then........I am really thinking that you messed something up while changing your sensors.....maybe you can locate and fix this problem? think about it, it had a problem, you tried to fix and now it has many problems.......take three steps back..
