This is error code below and a testimony how they encounter the trouble just click...

P0708 Transmission Range Sensor Circuit High Input
-97 Mazda 626 4 cyl AT OBD II code P0708 - OBD-Codes.com


ADJUSTMENT

1. Place the transaxle selector lever in the neutral position.
2. Loosen the switch mounting bolts.
3. With the switch in the neutral position, insert the proper size pin into theadjustment hole and tighten the attaching screws
4. Remove the screw on the switch body and move the switch so that the screwhole is aligned with the small hole inside of the switch. Check the alignmentby inserting a small pin (0.079 in. or 2mm for all models except Millennia,which uses a 0.13 in. or 4mm pin) in the hole.
5. Tighten the mounting bolts and remove the pin.
6. Install the screw to the switch body and tighten.
7. Check the adjustment by trying to start the engine in all gears. It shouldonly start in Park and Neutral.

I hope this will help others who may have similar problems:

I found this on the following site http://www.mazda626.net/index.php?showt... 6&hl=p0708
Here is a picture of the Range sensor (nuetral/park switch) In the middle ofthe picture you will find a "D" this is where the mark should alignwhen in "Drive" I used a scribe and marked mine in the Park modeprior to removing. Also may i suggest using a digital camera when taking thingsapart so you have a reference to fall back on. It has worked for me.

hope this may help;

Regards,
VOTIT

Www.hmaservice.com provides a gud insite about codes.. You'll need to register for a free account, and the site requires Internet Explorer. Once you've logged in, select "service information," and click on the TSB (technical service bulletin) tab. Enter your year and model, select transaxle, and read the service bulletins I reference below.

P0708 indicates that multiple inputs were received at the same time from the transmission range switch. In most cases, the range switch itself is the culprit and needs to be replaced. There are instructions on replacing the range switch, including proper adjustment of the switch and shift cable in TSB 03-40-013. Most do-it-yourselfers will be able to tackle this job

hope this helps

    First you can try to clear the error disconnecting battery cables for two minutes. After this you may be required your car stereo security code , ensure you have it.

    The range sensor Is located on the trans axle, underneath the air compartment (air filter).
    remove the air cleaner housing, remove the two bolts holding the range sensor arm.
    Here is the picture

    It is always better having the job done by a mechanic, they can also test yourr computer.

Code 708 is for a problem with the transmission selector switch on an automatic trans. The signal from the sensor to the engine computer is out of range. Usually the problem is the sensor but it can also be a wiring problem.

How can i fix my mazda 626 transmission range


The transmission range sensor aka neutral safety switch is located underneath the air filter on top of the transaxle and very easy to access. Replace this part (around $50) and it will solve your problem.
What happens is this, when your tranny warms up, it disperses heat to the sensor switch and if its faulty or worn out, will send faulty relays to the transmissiom computer module (TCM) and makes the transmission shift irratically (OD to 3rd and back while driving at freeway speeds). You tranny is not overheating like most people believe, its the switch. Mechanics are telling alot of people that their tranny needs replaced. Watch Out For These People!! They only want your money!!

Code 0708 in Ford Contour 1997


Trouble code P0708 means:Transmission range sensor circuit high input .
Other words the "neutral safety switch". it may have gone bad or the wire harness is damaged. It's mounted on top of the transmission where the gear selector cable connects to the transmission. Good luck and hope this helps.

Your "transmission high input sensor" is also known as a "neutral safety switch". It depends on you trans (auto, or standard) as to the location. Either way, it's a simple and inexpensive repair.
