My service engine light is on got it checked it has a p0706 code which is the Transmission Range Sensor Circuit Range/Performance?where do i find the part?


DTC P0708 - Transmission Range Sensor Circuit High Input

Check your transmission range sensor.
There is a connector located where the cable attaches to the tranny on the back (firewall side). Be sure its connected and seated properly.

From what I understand the "range sensor" is basically the Input Turbine Speed Sensor. Be sure the connector for this is also clean. This code is also set by the Nuetral Safety switch. Check the switch with a multi meter to be sure its working properly.

Also, check your Engine Coolant Temperature Sensor. This sensor is used by the PCM to help control tranny operations.

Also, can check this additional information for
1998 Saturn SL1...

DTC P0706
The PCM determines which gear is selected by a combination of opens and grounds in circuits 771, 772, and 773 at the transaxle park/neutral
position switch. Each combination indicates a specific selection on the
manual shift quadrant, P, R, N, D, 2, or 3. Circuit 776 is either open
or grounded to produce an even number of grounded circuits, 771, 772,
773, and 776. Invalid data indicates that the sum of the grounded
circuits 771, 772, 773, and 776, in 1 of the manual shift quadrants is
equal to an odd number.

Conditions for Setting the DTC
DTC P0706 is set when the PCM has detected an invalid bit pattern for
more than 3.5 seconds, twice per ignition cycle.

The difference between DTC P0706 and DTC P0705 is that a possible bit pattern error due to misadjustment could set a DTC P0706.

Test Description
1. This step verifies the conditions for DTC P0706 still exist.
2. If the shift cable or switch is misadjusted, a DTC P0706 may set
while in certain gear shift positions.
3. DTC P0706 may set due to 1 or more circuits being shorted to
ground. By disconnecting the switch, the PCM should read all circuits as high and the scan tool should display OPEN.
4. This step will isolate an open circuit. As each individual circuit
is grounded, the PCM/TCM should see the low signal and the tool should display INVALID.
5. The PCM/TCM supplies a 12 volt signal to each transaxle park/neutral position switch circuit. This step tests for that voltage.
6. DTC P0706 may have been set due to 1 of the circuits being shorted
to voltage. This step verifies if a short to voltage exists.

Repair Verification
Monitor DTC menu Code Status for Pass Since Code Clear and Pass This Ignition Cycle. When both have passed, the repair is verified.

Criteria for pass:
* No active DTC set.
* Two valid selector positions are decoded. You must move the
shifter to obtain a pass.

Diagnostic Aids
When the PCM detects a fault in the circuit, an open, ground, or short,
the PCM will open the circuit internally to protect the circuit.

If no circuit problems can be detected, check the shift cable and switch
adjustment.

Important
Refer to the chart from DTC P0705.

This DTC will cause the transaxle to start out in 2nd gear.

Hope helps (remember rated this).

My 2002 passat 1.8 litre tiptronic automatic shift indicator is not moving? Would that be a switching problem on the shifter, transmission or lights?


Sounds like the whole shifting unit. It has a printed circuit strip unit that usually goes bad or a switch on the side of the transmission. What code is showing? You need to have it scanned at your VW dealership to correctly diagnose your exact problem

Check engine light is on


The check engine light coming on indicates that a "trouble code" has been set by the onboard computer and is stored in it's memory. There is a wide range of possible causes, such as bad sensor(s), wiring faults, leaking or disconnected vacuum line(s), out of acceptible range engine environmental variables... Some manufacturers even program the light to come when the maintenance schedule calls for service! (a clever ploy!)
The good news is that most of the larger auto parts stores now offer free computer diagnostic scans, where they can read the trouble code and reset/clear the check engine light. Some causes are a LOT more serious than others, so act accordingly on the indicated problem... and some causes are merely "glitches" in the system when there really is nothing wrong!
Hope this is helpful, and good luck with the Passat... nice car!
