Question about 1994 Dodge Intrepid

1 Answer

TRANSAXLE/TCM Two codes have been retrieved by using a scan tool: 41(LR Solnoid Curcuit) & 61(inadequate 2/4 clutch volume).Code 41 could cause a limp-in mode.I've replaced the solenoid pack, but all that i've gained is a real smooth shifting-the limp mode is still occurring sometimes. Can anyone explain in details how the ETAX shutdown relay curcuit functions? I know that this relay is deactivated by the TCM, when detecting any trouble with the transaxle, and thus the voltage to the solenoid pack is stopped which results in a limp mode. What i need is to be assisted in making sure that all connections between the power distribution center,relevant sensors, and the TCM are perfect. Unfortunately, I do not have the TCM connector terminals diagram. Please, do not send me to purchase a Hayens or Mitchel Manual because simply they are not available where am I - 5k km away from the States. Any input leading to discovering what is wrong with my vehicle will be appreciated.

    My car is a 1994 Dodge Intrepid ES 3.3L MFI.It is a Canadian made.I know it is an old car, but I still prefer it to many other makes, even brand new ones.Believe it or not, this car has 325k km on it without conducting whatsoever major repair on the engine.This very fact makes me love it more, and I will do whatever it takes to get it fixed, of course not without your indispensable assistance. WARM REGARDS.



    P.S.

    As per the catalogue the TCM part # should be 4605 656.

Ok firts excuse my delay just been so busy, the best thing i will recomend you is to go to autozone.com and look for alldata repair information for your car, of course they will charge you something for it but it is the program i use as a profetional mechanic, it comes very complete with specifications wiring diagrams labor times, part numbers, etc etc you will be so happy to have all kind of information, i wich to mail you the information for the wiring my self but unfortunatelly fixya don't like us to share personal information with no budy, but i defitive will recomend you to buy alldata from autozone.com because i do have it, unfortunatelly i,m paying much more than what it cost because i need it for all kind of makes and models, if you need any more advise just let me know and i will really apreciate your feedback

P1775 code in showing up on my 2008 jeep wrangler x. How do you fix that?


we can not answer what you can do or fix.
only how to diagnose, or is this just a please guess for me post?
got tools, got a real scan tool?
is this a 5 buck code reader that misses most codes.
or a real one (ask for good tools)
if a real tool, it will show all codes, and you must know them all
or go astray. P0841? present? too>?

42RLE box.::: one code only, my guess.

i have this car, (m/t) and full FSM, on it,
Ill decode this and tell you what page to read in the FSM
it shows what to do next and the tests to prove this out.
P= power train
P1 means factory code ( so dont read ford codes)
SOLENOID SWITCH VALVE LATCHED IN TCC POSITION
TCC means torque converter clutch. lock up device. failure.
that means transmission, (id didnt say its bad)
the transmission on your car is automatic, unlike my stick
it has a TCM brain, hidden in the PCM brain
but its real and there. for sure. inside.
and it shifts for you, this brain,. in DRIVE

here is the 1st page on this code. in fsm book.

The Solenoid Switch Valve, an internal, hydraulically operated valve, controls the direction of the transmission
fluid when the LR solenoid is energized. When the solenoid switch valve is in the downshifted position and the
LR solenoid is energized, fluid is directed to the LR element for 1st gear. When the solenoid switch valve is In
the up-shifted position (2nd, 3rd, and 4th gear) and the LR solenoid is energized, fluid is directed into the
Lockup Switch Valve which controls the Torque Converter Clutch. When shifting into 1st gear, a special
sequence is followed to insure solenoid switch valve movement into the downshifted position. The LR pressure
switch is monitored to confirm switch valve movement. If the solenoid switch valve movement is not confirmed
(i.e. no LR pressure when the LR solenoid is energized), 2nd gear is substituted for 1st. No 1st gear (2nd gear is
substituted). The transmission Torque converter FEMCC operation is inhibited. MIL on after 5 min. of
substituted operation.
Monitor Conditions
When Monitored:
Prior to a shift into 1st gear.
possible causes:
RELATED DTC P0841 PRESENT?
(T16) TRANSMISSION CONTROL OUTPUT CIRCUIT OPEN
(T50) L/R PRESSURE SWITCH SENSE CIRCUIT OPEN
(T50) L/R PRESSURE SWITCH SENSE CIRCUIT SHORT TO GROUND
(T50) L/R PRESSURE SWITCH SENSE CIRCUIT SHORT TO VOLTAGE
INTERNAL TRANSMISSION
POWERTRAIN CONTROL MODULE

the book says have the dealer
do a full transmission check using there (unique) fancy tool..
seems to be good advice.

below is the interface tcm.<> box.
solenoid and read back switches.
if the trans is not bad, then this switch is bad (fibbing)
or the wires rusty there... re-seat them yet?

P0700 code for a 04 volvo s60


Symptoms of a P0700 DTC may include:
1. Malfunction Indicator Lamp (MIL) illumination
2. The transmission may exhibit drivability problems like slipping, etc.


Causes: More often then not, the cause of this code is that there is a transmission problem of some kind. The TCM detected the problem and set a code. P0700 means that a fault code is stored in the TCM. However this doesn't rule out the possibility of a failed PCM or TCM (unlikely).

Possible Solutions: For a P0700 the only real solution is to acquire a scan tool that will communicate with the transmission control module. Extracting this code from the TCM will be the first step in repairing the fault in the transmission.If the TCM compatible scan tool will not communicate with the Transmission Control Module then that is a good indication that there may be a fault with the TCM itself.

- Driveability problems
- Transaxle shifting problems

Possible causes - Shorted or open circuit within transmission control module (TCM)
- Failure of transaxle control module

Tech notes Since the P0700 is just and informative code, check the TCM for more codes to resolve the problem.

P0700 DODGE Description The transaxle Control Module (TCM) monitors the malfunction of sensors and actuators relating to transaxle control. When the TCM detects a malfunction with the control, a signal is send to the Engine Control Module (ECM) to trigger the Engine Light or Service Engine Soon light. The ECM stores the P0700 code and it means the TCM detected a malfunction with the transaxle controls.

I bought a 1998 mitsubishi eclipse and the check engine light came on we hooked up the machine to diagnos it and we got 2 codes po700 and p1784 . we are wondering what the codes mean and how to fix the...


DTC 1784: LOW-REVERSE PRESSURE SWITCH
1.Remove transaxle relay from connector. Turn ignition on. Install scan tool and observe low-reverse pressure switch condition. Apply battery voltage to transaxle relay connector terminal No. 8. If low-reverse pressure switch stays off, go to next step. If low-reverse pressure switch turns on, go to step 4 .

2.Raise vehicle enough to allow drive wheels to spin freely. Test low-reverse clutch hydraulic pressure. See HYDRAULIC PRESSURE TESTS under TESTING. If low-reverse clutch pressure test is not within specification, internal transaxle failure exists. If low-reverse clutch pressure test is within specification, observe scan tool.

3.If low-reverse pressure switch turns on, trouble code is intermittent. Check wire harnesses and connectors for damage or poor connection. If low-reverse pressure switch does not turn on, replace solenoid and pressure switch assembly. Recheck trouble codes. If trouble code resets, replace TCM.

4.Check and repair wiring harness between transaxle relay connector and solenoid and pressure switch assembly connector. If wiring harness is okay, check wire between TCM connector terminal No. 10 and solenoid and pressure switch assembly.

5.If wire between TCM connector terminal No. 10 and solenoid and pressure switch assembly is okay, check TCM and solenoid and pressure switch assembly connectors. Repair connectors as necessary. If connectors are okay, recheck trouble codes. If trouble code resets, replace solenoid and pressure switch assembly. Recheck trouble codes. If trouble code resets, replace TCM.

P0700-The Transmission Control Module (TCM) monitors the malfunction of sensors and actuators relating to transmission control. When the TCM detects a malfunction with the control, a signal is send to the Engine Control Module (ECM) to trigger the Engine Light or Service Engine Soon light. The ECM stores the P0700 code and it means the TCM detected a malfunction with the transmission controls.

I would try disconnecting he battery and letting it sit for 5 minutes, then hook it back up to see if they return-the 700 code is probably related to the 1784 code, that seems to be your main issue.

Car does not run ,I check the code ,it is P0700


Because it is not starting, you should replace the Crankshaft sensor (above the oil filter, back of the engine)-it will cause a P0700-I have a 99 SL2, 178,000 miles


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. So basically, the P0700 code is telling you to check the TCM for a transaxle DTC. The TCM can not turn on the check engine light so it has the PCM do it. The dealer probably saw the code P0700 and went to the TCM and pulled out the code stored there telling them the Transmission Solenoid Assembly (TSA) is bad. This is a good example of understanding what the codes actually mean. If the manual you looked at said the TCM is bad and to replace the TCM when you see a P0700, then it is wrong.

Error P0700. What is the cause? How to repair it?


P0700 JEEP - Transaxle Control System Malfunction
The transaxle Control Module (TCM) monitors the malfunction of sensors and actuators relating to transaxle control. When the TCM detects a malfunction with the control, a signal is send to the Engine Control Module (ECM) to trigger the Engine Light or Service Engine Soon light. The ECM stores the P0700 code and it means the TCM detected a malfunction with the transaxle controls.

Symptoms
- Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light)
- Driveability problems
- Transaxle shifting problems

Possible causes
- Shorted or open circuit within transmission control module (TCM)
- Failure of transaxle control module

Tech notes: Since the P0700 is just and informative code, check the TCM for more codes to resolve the problem. So you'll have to have the dealer or another qualified shop/technician pull the transaxle codes from the TCM and go from there.

Good luck (remember to rate this answer)

T1529


P1529 TCU Request for MIL On / Freeze Frame to ECU via CAN
1. This is only a request from TCM to ECM to turn the MIL on. The fault code is stored in the TCM. The Freeze Frame Data is stored in the ECM under the P1529 request code. Be sure to retrieve freeze frame data before clearing code P1529 from ECM. 2. Check the transaxle system.
