The TCM will only be available new from the dealer. You can try to find one used at an auto salvage yard. They are not available from the aftermarket (local parts stores)

Fuel not reaching engine


You may have water in the lines or need a new fuel pump. Could be a lot of different problems though. I'd say those two are most common though. Have a nice mechanic check it out. It's always nice to have a mechanic friend on hand. Hope this helps:)

Code P0700


P0700 = TCU request for 'MIL' on (IE transmission control unit has detected a fault and wants you to know about it.)

Reasons:

A communication line exists between the Engine Control Module(ECM) and the Trans-axle Control Module (TCM). The sole purpose of this communication line is for the TCM to notify the ECM to activate the Malfunction Indicator Lamp (MIL) when a serious trans-axle failure has occurred.

DTC Description
If the signal "MIL ON" is requested from TCU or it is no signal from TCU, the ECM judged as a fault and DTC is set.

Kia's first suggestion is to check for damaged wiring or connectors.

Try this: Disconnect your battery for about 5 minutes to clear the fault. Then take it for a spin and see how it shifts... good luck.

P0700 code on my 2003 kia sorrento. I HAD THE THROTTLE POSITION SENSOR DONE, EVAP EMMISSIONS LEAK DONE, TUNE UP(NEW PLUGS) NOW WHAT? THANKS!


p0700 is a trans code its from the tcm it sends a message to the computer saying that you have a transmission problem and a sensor that is connected to trans is causing a code for example the tps is connected to trans for shift and rpm so it is possible it kept it in memory you need a scanner which can go in to the tcm and check the code if worst unplug battery lets it reset for 15 mins and retry if it lights up again you need to check the code from tcm

Hello. I did a testing to my 2001 Kia Sephia LS and I got 2 codes. The first one is P1624 and the second one is P0705. I went to a repair shop and they said all I needed was the Transmission Range Switch...


P1624 could be a problem with the TCM. Needs to go to a shop to get fixed. As the transmission range switch I recommend have an experienced mechanic do that as well.

I need to know where the TCM is & Shift Solenoid "C"on 04 Kia Rio


The TCM is stuffed up in the drivers side dash just left of the steering column on this disposable vehicle. There are 2 modules there. One is a pcm and the other is a tcm. The onewith the large single black plug is the TCM.

Have a 2004 kia sorento. have a transaxel fault and a TPS SIGNAL MALFUNTION FROM ECM TO TCM. WHAT IS THIS


Your transaxle is the transmission. The TPS is the throttle position sensor. ECM is the is the engine's computer. The TCM is the transmission computer. So, the throttle position sensor is not reporting to either and needs to be replaced. They seem to be about $180 for the part.
