Question about 2004 Dodge Ram
03 dodge ram 2500 diesel automatic. Shifts erratic from time to time. Believe it is between 2nd and 3rd. Sometimes rev it up and take foot off pedal like a standard and it shifts. Found code P0700. Thanks. Happened 1 1/2 years ago and replaced module about the size of your hand on firewall. Cured problem then but now is back!
Sounds like solenoid failing . Most of the time when solenoid fails it won't show on the code reader. U can read them with special scanner, but only if you know the proper numbers that will show when u read them. Most good transmission shops, have that tool and they can read it for u.

I'm no expert, but I am on my second Dodge. I have a 2004 Ram 2500, 125k miles on it. I traded in my 2001 1500 with 99k on it.
Your problem sounds like one of two things that happened to me. At 110k mi's it was not accelerating properly, particularly between 40 and 50 mph. It turned out my torque converter was going bad and I ignored it for too long and it's disintegrated pieces ruined my transmission. I recommend getting over to Aamco right away or to the dealer if you are still in warranty and have the TC checked out. The diesel is just too much torque for a torque converter on the automatic transmission, but manuals are too much of a pain these days. $2300 at Aamco to have the TC replaced and the tranny rebuilt.
The new problem I have now is when it acted like it was out of fuel and then wouldn't turn over after it died. My fuel lift pump (diesels have two of everything and the expensive one is always what goes) has gone bad and is currently being replaced, $700 part, plus another few hundred in labor.
Hope this helps.

Although you didn't mention it, the speedometer probably bounces also. Replacing the speed sensor on the side of the transmission should solve both your problems. Good luck

Check the wire harness, make sure there are no breaks or crushed wires. Also check the wire harness to the TCM, look for any loose connections. Good luck and keep me posted. Be glad to help.
