Hi.

Check the transmission fluid level, that is most common reason for troubles of this kind.

If replacing or refilling transmission fluid does not help, there are many possible reasons why this happens.

The most common is a faulty shift solenoid. The solenoid pack is located on the valve body in the transmission.

A faulty TPS or a faulty speed sender can cause trouble shifting.

A slipped component inside the transmission can cause similar problem.

The transmission is also controlled by a module caused TCM, that will be the last part to test.

The first step in troubleshooting is getting the fault codes from car computer.

You can get a free Fault Code reading at AutoZone. The test is free of charge.

If there is no AZ in your area, then you can either go to a local mechanic and have the code reading done for a small fee, or purchase a code reader and hook it to the PCM module to read codes.

If you have Autozone near, go there, and have the code scan done.

Take note of the codes on a piece of paper and come back here with the codes, so that we can be more specific on what the problem can be and how to fix it.

Regards.

    Hi.

    P0700 means that there is an error code stored on the TCM (transmission control module).

    The TCM can be scanned at an authorized garage, since a different machine is needed to scan TCM.

    You can also decide to replace TCM without further troubleshooting, but that would be a risk. The TCM is not necessarily the faulty part, P0700 only says that TCM sent an error signal, and stored an error.

1995 dodge ram 1500 I need instructions on how to shift out of 4-wheel drive.


well not sure what style shifting it has. if its the floor shifter to select. you need to have the truck in neutral first before changing the 4wd. same thing with push button shifting on the newer trucks. it just works easier for the parts to move not being in gear. if it wont work with the shifter then you might have something that is broke or jammed.

Trail blazer gear shift button


Could be the brake switch or the shift lock solenoid. You may be able to turn the key lock to the unlock position, move the shifter out of park, then start the engine in neutral.
The shifter and the shift lock solenoid would need to be inspected.

All late model vehicles have built in Rev Limiters to prevent catastrophic destruction from no load over speed of the engine. Check with your dealer Service Manager to find out what RPM your engine is governed to.
