Question about 1997 Dodge Dakota

2 Answers

Check engine light on. Advance Auto did a check with the computer and it indicated a P1756 code. What does this mean. How is it fixed? When I'm stopped at a light with brake on, the truck will rev up a bit for a few seconds, then settle back down. Otherwise runs fine. No indications of transmission slipping. My 97 Dakota has 251,000 miles. I put in a NEW transmission around 143,000.

P1756 is the code I am getting when my check engine light comes on in my 1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited


Trouble code P1756 means: Governor pressure not equal to target at 15-20 ps
Governor pressure in the trans is not correct. Fairly easy fix. Drop the trans pan and get a governor pressure solenoid from your local dealer. Bolts in pretty easy.

I hope this helps. Mike from fixya

My 2005 Suzuki Aerio recently had the engine light come on. I had the oil checked/changed, air filter is ok, and there is plenty of coolant. What else should I be looking for or having a tech check?

If you go to Auto Zone or Advance auto they will read the code for you and tell you what it is. It may be something as simple as an O2 Sensor to something more in depth. Without that code your jsut shooting in the dark.

Turbo whisles and car jerks warning lights on check engine light on

A good place to start is to see what codes are stored on the computer using an obd-II scanner. Many engine and transmission codes are possible, so this will narrow down the possibilities from several hundred down to a few possible problems with the vehicle.

Try autozone or advance auto parts to see if they will scan it for free.

How to reset the check engine on a 208 chevy

Just disconnect the battery (negative terminal) and turn the headlight switch on for about 15 minutes. This should reset the PCM. Otherwise go to Advance and have them hookup the code reader and reset the codes. Thanks

OBD II Code P1756.

Could be a bad sensor, but it's transmission related. Anything affecting internal trans pressures should be taken care of by a reputable trans shop.
