Hi! You may find the transmission control module (tcm) on the rear of the engine passenger side just behind the cover panel in the firewall. Hope this helps and have a good one!

I have a 2009 Chevy Avalanche LS and I got the P0700 code, how easy is this to fix? where is the TCM located? If this is a dealer service how much?


DTC P0700: Transmission Control Module (TCM) Requested MIL Illumination
The transmission control module (TCM) uses the (GMLAN) to signal the engine control module (ECM) that the TCM is requesting malfunction indicator lamp (MIL) illumination. This happens when the TCM has determined that a failure affecting emissions has occurred in transmission control system. When the ECM receives the message from the TCM, DTC P0700 will set.
DTC P0700 can not be cleared from the ECM until the related TCM codes have been cleared.
This is something best left to a qualified repair shop , doesn't need to be the dealer ! AMMCO could fix it . This code is telling that other codes are stored in the transmission control module . Need a professional type or factory scan tool to check these . As to how much it will cost , no telling without knowing the codes in the TCM !

I replaced the TCM in my 2005 Chevy colbolt, light come on but car won't start, turn key and anti theft icon comes on but doesn't stay on


TCM ? transmission control module ? Did you have it programmed ? Reprogram the TCM. Refer to Control Module References for programming and setup information.
Transmission Control Module Programming and Setup
The transmission control module (TCM) must be programmed with the proper software/calibrations. Ensure that the following conditions exist in order to prepare for TCM programming:
• The battery is fully charged.
• The ignition switch is in the RUN position.
• The Techline equipment cable connection at the data link connector (DLC) is secure.
Program the TCM using the latest software matching the vehicle. Refer to up-to-date Techline equipment user instructions.
If the TCM fails to program, proceed as follows:
3.1. Ensure that the TCM connection is OK.
3.2. Inspect the Techline equipment for the latest software version.
3.3. Attempt to program the TCM. If the TCM still cannot be programmed properly, replace the TCM.

You don't say which engine your's has ! Or which transmission .
Automatic Transmission - 4L60-E/4L65-E/4L70-E

You need to have TCM checked for codes .

Hi,
Verify the fluid level is full (not overfilled!) and the color and smell of the fluid. It should be light red color (usually) and not smell burnt @ all.

P700 code po750


code p0700 refers to transmission control system/ MIL- malfunction===causes--wiring ---TCM replace the TCM
code p0750 refers to shift solenoid9SS) A-circuit malfunction===causes --wiring---shift solenoid ECM/TCM. When the TCM is replaced then it should be fixed as the TCM is common in both faults.

No overdrive 1992 geo tracker


first the fuses, all 6, yes 6.
4speed tranny, and is TCM (puter brain) shifted.
no flash codes from TCM?
http://www.fixkick.com/tranny/slush/OD-flashes%20now%20what.html
the TCM controls all 3 shift solenoid.
and OD, has many defeat rules in logic of TCM
one is if TCM , sees 4wd drive active it will not use OD
if the TCM sees errors, (did you dump the flash codes yet?)
it fill not use OD
if the TCM , sets limphom mode, (fail safe) it will not use 0D
or may skip second and use 0D. all this is in the FSM.
there is the tcm brain

Help.. I have an 2002 dodge caravan witha 3.3. The codes pulled from it are P0700and P0605 which i know is with the Tcm but I have no power to the tcm plug unless you take the negative off from the battery...


HI, the actual p700 is an indication of a stored code that exists within the TCM module. The actual code will be the p0605, which is an internal failure alert that exists within the actual tcm module board sector. There may be board level damage to the internal layout which is causing a major short or misdirection or power to the vital circuits needed to provide necessary direction for the transmission. You will need to replace the module at this point. It is not repairable, unfortunately, due to the state of its design. Once it is replaced, it will need to be re-calibrated by a dealer scan tool before normal speedometer function will resume.

In conclusion, replacing the TCM will correct this issue. I would also inspect all connecters for faults before installing the new module.

Car does not run ,I check the code ,it is P0700


Because it is not starting, you should replace the Crankshaft sensor (above the oil filter, back of the engine)-it will cause a P0700-I have a 99 SL2, 178,000 miles


DTC) CODE # P0700....Transmission Control System (MIL Request)
Translation: Transmission Control Module (TCM) Malfunction or Failure. P0700 Information Code The Transaxle Control Module (TCM) monitors the malfunction of sensors and actuators relating to transaxle control. If any malfunction is detected, the TCM informs the PCM by sending a signal (P0700 code). P0700 means that a code has been set in the TCM. This code is for information ONLY. If this code is present, check for transaxle codes. So basically, the P0700 code is telling you to check the TCM for a transaxle DTC. The TCM can not turn on the check engine light so it has the PCM do it. The dealer probably saw the code P0700 and went to the TCM and pulled out the code stored there telling them the Transmission Solenoid Assembly (TSA) is bad. This is a good example of understanding what the codes actually mean. If the manual you looked at said the TCM is bad and to replace the TCM when you see a P0700, then it is wrong.
