I would check tranny temperature sensor first thing; That would actually give you a different code, but it can cause different codes to show up as if it where a different problem. If that checks out ok, The other thing I would definately check is the circuits. From my 10+ years of experience the circuits can cause problems and throw more than one code. If all solenoids are ok and/or have been replaced, then the circuits or pcm is to blame. One bad solenoid wouldn't cause that many codes to show up.

    thanks....if there is oil inside the connector...where the pins fit into the holes...could that cause that circuit to to short out.....

    Yes. Oil can definately cause these to short out.

When the a transmission solenoid is malfunction, in most cases the problem is not the electrical part of the solenoid; the problem is foreign material obstructing the mechanical function of the solenoid or the flow of the fluid through the transmission valve body. If the transmission fluid is very dirty, it is recommend changing the transmission fluid and if possible removing the transmission pan for further diagnosis. Excessive debris or metal particles on the transmission pan could be an indication that there is a transmission mechanical failure and that the transmission will need to be rebuilt or replaced.

the second code is govener pressure sensor. the pressure is to low. the first code is sensor voltage to low, i would check the wiring where it plugs into trans for corrosion. also make sure the kick down cable on the throttle is connected and not broke because this cable controls the line pressure.

Trouble code p1784 on dodge grand caravan


found this on another page.....
Originally Posted by vasau viewpost.gif The vehicle came in with 2 trouble codes and complaint on a transmission shifting.
P1775 Solenoid Switch Valve Stuck in TCC.
P1784 LR Pressure Switch Circuit.
After clearing these 2 codes the van ran normal for about 20 minutes without any issue, but after, the problems came back with no codes.
LR Pressure Switch is always in "Open" position. Must be closed at Park, Rev and Neutral.
Could anyone explain to me how the switch works. Is this the solenoid pack or the LR Pressure issue?The L/R pressure switch should be closed in P/N only. The switch should open when put into REV if the trans is not in limp-in mode. All switches will stay CLOSED if the trans is in limp-in mode. Disconnect the trans 8-way connector at the solenoid pack. Key on scanner hooked up apply 12 volts to the L/R pressure switch pin in the 8-way connector and watch for the switch to change from open to closed. If it does change the SSV may be stuck in the TCC position. You will have to remove the valvebody and inspect the solenoid switch valve to know for sure. The pressure switch itself is in the solenoid pack. If you have an old solenoid pack changing it is easier and quicker than inspecting the valvebody. Perform your diag for fault P1784. I believe the pressure switch is also closed in 1st gear also. Hope this helps.

Diagnostic code for dodge caravan 1996 P1784?


The code is about the switch that monitors the hydraulic pressure for operating the low/reverse clutch of the transmission. That clutch is called into play for all forward gears as well as reverse, so it seems reasonable if that clutch were not working that the car wouldn't move in any gear. I would begin by making sure that there is sufficient trans fluid by inspecting its dipstick. If needed only use ATF +4 but don't overfill it. Also, just on a chance, take a look underneath to see if you see any motion of either the left or right half axles (or one moving, but one not) which would be another reason for no motion due to a drive shaft disconnection or some such anomaly. Other than that, your problem could be with the Low/Reverse solenoid switch in the solenoid pack portion of the transmission (the box on the driver's side of the trans) being stuck. That can be repaired without removing and rebuilding the transmission so let us hope that may be the cause. I would have the car towed to a good independent trans shop that has a reputation for knowing how to service the Chrysler electronic transmission.

Hope this helps.

My Grand Voyager keeps getting codes P1776 P1784 P0700 goes into limp mode till they are took out



Code p1776 is solenoid switch valve latched in low/reverse position. Valve is located in valve body not solenoid body. The possibilities are:
the low/reverse pressure switch itself is bad
the transmission control relay output circuit is open
the control circuit (sense) of the l/r switch is open, shorted to ground or shorted to voltage.
The control relay's output is on pin #6 of the 8-pin plug of the transmission (red wire); you could verify that the wire has 12V on it when you are idling (and I guess I would put it in gear with the brakes applied). Also examine/shake the wire for intermittent connection possibility.
The solenoid sense circuit connects pin # 8 (light blue) to pin #50 of the transmission control module. You could check that connection and monitor it for voltage to fluctuate between 0V and some measurable V when the trans is shifting normally, and to loose that fluctuation when it is not, which would verify the circuit is OK.
If that proved to be OK, then I would suspect the switch isn't responding and needs to be changed.
The solenoid box is removable after you drop the pan and remove the valve body, and so it would not seem to be an horrendous expense (compared to a rebuild). I haven't done this myself so I can't comment on doing-it-yourself.
I would try to find a competent independent shop that know the Chrysler trans and discuss it with them as to the cost of replacing the l/r pressure switch as the alternative

The code p1784 is about the switch that monitors the hydraulic pressure for operating the low/reverse clutch of the transmission. That clutch is called into play for all forward gears as well as reverse, so it seems reasonable if that clutch were not working that the car wouldn't move in any gear. I would begin by making sure that there is sufficient trans fluid by inspecting its dipstick. If needed only use ATF +4 but don't overfill it.

DTC code p0700 is a transmission control system (mill light) which is related to the other two codes mentioned above.

Transmission Not Going into Overdrive


First check and make sure the fluid is full. The most likely cause is a failed solenoid pack. Circuit codes normally mean something electrical not mechanical has failed. The solenoid pack is on the outside of trans pretty easy to replace.

AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION GEAR SYSTEM PROBLEM


Yes,that code is a transmission code,pressure control solenoid A.On a Honda trans,there are two solenoids that control line pressure inside the trans.The two of them are made together into one assembly that Honda calls "Linear Solenoids".Most likely they are defective and need replacing,but require testing.They are mounted on the outside of the trans case,so the problem can be repaired without removing the transmission from the car.The actual diagnostic route for that trouble code involves ohms checking the wires from the vehicle computer to the solenoids.Ohms checking the solenoids,amps chekcing the solenoids,and then installing a line pressure gauge on the transmission to test the solenoids mechanically.I rebuild Honda and Acura transmissions on a regular basis,and solenoid failure is not out of the ordinary.Good luck.
