Question about 2002 Dodge Stratus

1 Answer

2000 Stratus will not shift out of second

The problem just started last night. The check engine light came on and the car stopped shifting out of second. I went to Autozone and had them pull the codes fro the check engine which I have listed below.
P1784 Presure Switch Circuit LR
P1782 Presure Switch Circuit 2-4
P0755 Shift Solinoid B
P0700 Transmission Control Malfuntion.

I just want to be prepared before I take this to the shop and am told I need a whole new trans. The car has about 140k on it so I don't want to spend more than it is worth.

Thanks

Indications are that the transmission has some serious issues. You may want to call a reputable local transmission shop and explain the situation, including the codes. They can give you your options. But I suspect you need the transmission rebuilt or replaced.

SOURCE: 2000 Dodge Sratus 4 speed auto transmission

Dave, The P0700 code is a generic fault code indicating the the TCM (transmission control module) has recognized a problem and the P0755 is the indicated problem. I'd recommend you check your transmission external electrical connector for water intrusion and corrosion at the terminals by disconnecting the connector. If nothing appears wrong, I'd then recommend you drop the lower transmission pan and take a look at the residue deposit that is laying on the bottom of the pan. You should only see a relativily minor amount of grayish, black clutch material residing there. Pay particular attention for a gross amount of this or any large particular material, including any metal, either filings or chunks, or any brass or aluminum. If this checks out to be fairly clean, then I'd recommend you replace that "B" solenoid (2-3 shift solenoid) and have the trans. pan and filter replaced.; I'd also highly recommend you have the trans flushed for anyother particular matter that may reside internally inside the transmission. You'll have to have the codes cleared and the transmission relearned for shift feel, at that point.

SOURCE: engine light on code p0732, p1782, p1787 and p0700 twice

P0732 Gear 2 Incorrect ratio
P1782 P/ES Circuit Out Of Self Test Range
P1787 2-1 Downshift Error
P0700 Transmission Control System (MIL Request) Malfunction

Here is the deal, u have some serious transmission related faults, in order to sort this out u will need to take this to the dealer, allot of testing is required to get to the bottom of this, if I had to guess I would say the trans is going to have to be overhauled.

SOURCE: I have a 2000 plymouth voyager with error codes

speed sensor most likely this transmission runs 2 an input and an output. if your speedometer is fluctuating or not working it would be output problem if not probably an input speed sensor. these sensors can be purchased for around 40$ i believe at your local dodge/chrysler dealer.

replacement is fairly easy. open hood remove air cleaner locate the sensor on the transmission. in put is closet to engine. unplug sensor remove by unscrewing it. reverse for installation. disconnect battery for 2 min to clear codes and road test

SOURCE: i have a 1996 dodge avenger with trouble codes

you are running hot!!!, make sure oil , coolant, and tranny fluids are all good and full like they should be. You might want to crawl under the car and check to see if you somehow crimped one of the tranny lines. DO IT NOW BEFORE YOU KEEP DRIVING AND END UP HAVING TO REPLACE THE TRANSMISSION. CAN be quite expensive so look now :)

My 02 Dodge Stratus will not shift out of Park. Help?


If the engine starts, but wont shift out of park, you should check that your brake lights are working. The interlock solenoid is powered by the brake light switch, if the fuse is blown or if the brake light switch is bad, the car wont shift out of park...I hope this helps.

The last shift is not a real gear shift, it is called "torque converter". The high rpms happens because the transm. goes to neutral. Get it to a transm. shop to be tested

1998 F150 Reg Cab 4x4 won't shift to 3rd.


If there is a problem with the 3-4 solenoid then a check engine light would be on or the OD light would be flashing. Read the faultcodes and see what is there.

Transmission won't shift out of 2nd


I have had the same problem before. Everything you have said matches the exact problems I had. I was also driving down the road when my problems started. My speedometer stop working and my car wouldn't shift out of 2nd. I had a family friend who is a mechanic check it out. He hooked it up to the computer and it ended up being the Turbine Sensor. However you would want to hook it up and find out exactly which sensor it might be because there is another sensor that can cause that problem as well. I think this happend to me about a year ago but the part costed maybe around $30 or $40.
