Before you go replacing the ECM on these, what seems to be the problem with this car? The ECM should be on the left kick panel by the driver's foot.

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 .

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.

SUV will not engage into drive or reverse. Is this a computer problem?


More likely your transmission needs to be adjusted. If you have an AAMCO transmission shop nearby call them. J.

What Is a SUV


Hi,
SUV is the widely used and known acronym, for Sport Utility Vehicle. At first conception, an SUV was a vehicle that combined the towing capacity of a full-size truck with the passenger and storage capacity of a minivan. However, as consumer demands have changed, so has the SUV. Many manufacturers now focus on fuel-efficiency and driving and riding comfort, rather than towing capacity.

The typical features of an SUV include;
1. seating for five to seven,

2. high seating and road positioning, roomy interior,

3.Non-dedicated trunk space,

4. High engine capacity and 4 wheel drive capability.


Though the SUV was originally designed to be an off-road vehicle for sporting purposes, their popularity has spawned several different breeds, including the luxury SUV.
Like cars, the SUV has different classes and sizes. The mid-sized SUV, which typically seats five, is the best-selling variety in the United States. During the SUV’s height of popularity, the Ford Explorer remained the top-selling model. The compact and full-size SUV appeals to many consumers equally, but for different reasons. The luxury SUV has the same features as standard class models, but contains upgraded interiors and trim packages typically associated with luxury model vehicles, such as leather interior.


When next you hear the name "SUV",i believe you now know what they are talking about.
