(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.
P1776: Solenoid Switch Valve Latched in Low/Reverse Position. The TCM monitors the L/R solenoid to ensure that the fluid transfer happens. It uses a Pressure switch to verify this. Usually this code is set by a switch that is stuck or a solenoid that is not mechanically operating.
A transmission shop would be better suited for this type of work.

I recommend changing your transmission fluid to see if that helps solve the issue....
Otherwise, you may have to change the solenoid pack as the screen filter in it will clog, and stick the solenoids.

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

Testimonial: "you was very helpful on this problem you talked in words that didn't make me fell like a dumb a// I will add this site t my fovorets for your help THA"
P0700 code is a generic code for Transmission Control System Malfunction
P1776 code means your solenoid switch valve is stuck in low reverse. (DTC 47) A stuck solenoid switch valve is a common occurrence in the valve body of the Dodge 41te transmission.
The first step would be to check the wiring to the solenoid from the TCM, then maybe try a new solenoid pack if the wiring is determined to be fine.

Yes, I had this on my 97 Stratus....could be a couple of things....one, the there may be damage to the wire connector harness going to that sensor. That was the problem with mine. I replaced the cam sensor, crank sensor, coil pack, mas sensor..etc...it ended up being a burnt spot on the wire harness. They said this is a common problem for the stratus/breeze/cirrus/intrepid.....the most it could be is a bad ECM....there is a bad pin on it located half way down the side where the big connector is. It is the silver block with the big wire harness going to it in the engine compartment. Try wiggling that around...the harness area.
