If the light was flashing when it came on, then it means your engine is misfiring.

A solid light can mean anything.

This light comes on when the computer detects a fault of some sort in its diagnostic tests. If it keeps detecting this issue, the light will remain on. If the light turns off, then it has detected that the issue may no longer be present.

In order to find out what the exact reason was for your light, You need to have your car computer scanned to retrieve the code that the computer would have stored when the light triggered. Most garages will do this free of charge. The code will tell you what may have caused the light to initially go on

Most auto parts stores will read the code right at the store for free. I take mine there and fix everything myself. Waay Cheaper than dealer.

I have a 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee. When the accelerator is depressed hard (passing or going uphill) the vehicle downshifts into too low of a gear. The nose will dip down and it will rev high.


this is normal for the trans to downshift as the engine and trans are working together to handle the acceleration of your car and as your car's speed increases the trans will adjust again (EG: shift gears) this is more of a weight to acceleration sort of thing or rather weight to power sort of thing

p0700 description
The transaxle Control Module (TCM) monitors the malfunction of sensors and actuators relating to transaxle control. When the TCM detects a malfunction with the control, a signal is send to the Engine Control Module (ECM) to trigger the Engine Light or Service Engine Soon light. The ECM stores the P0700 code and it means the TCM detected a malfunction with the transaxle controls.

Not shifting


Any transmission trouble code will put the trans in second gear
and it won\'t shift.
Key on-off-on-off-on without starting the engine will illuminate
the check engine light .It will flash out the codes.Should see a 55
code ,5 flashes,a pause then 5 more. Any codes other than 12 and
55 need recorded for further diagnnosis.
I was thinking that turning the key on and opening the throttle wide
open 4 times within 5 seconds (engine off)clears tranny codes,not sure about that tho. You might try it then drive it and see if it shifts,although
as soon as the malfunction happens again it will go back into limp mode.
Tranny slipping or a slow shift or converter lock up malfunction along
with many other things will trigger this.

Transmission problem 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee V8 Four Wheel Drive Automatic 58000 miles My Jeep has been having the same thing happening and I am being told nothing is wrong. When I start it in the...


a 700 code is a generic transmission code to the ecm. I can't believe the dealer didn't clear the codes out and try to find the problem. The symptoms your having sounds like a TCC solenoid. (torque converter clutch). It is stuck or malfunctioning. The first thing I would do is get a transmission additive and put it in. Lucas or TranX. About 10 bucks. These are seal conditioners and if you have a stuck piston this usually will help. It's a start, next would be a solenoid package, several hundred dollars. I have replaced a couple of these on low mile transmission. But it needs properly diagnosed first. Before you start throwing money in it.
