Where is the transmission warning light in the display

In most vehicle, Transmission warning light incorporated in Check Engine light (ie, when you pull check engine light codes, transmission trouble code will be among it, if there were any), other case, its in your PRNDL indicator light (ie. PRNDL light will blink when transmission has problem), and in another case, you need to have a special scaner that capable of pulling transmission trouble code. I hope it helps :)

Po700 code check engine light is on and i had a rebuilt trans in december

P0700 meands that the TCM (transmission control module) has sensed an electronic fault in the transmission controls and has commaned the Powertrain control module to turn the check engine light on to alert you of the problem, u must now have the TCM tested for the specific code that triggered the check engine light.
Bottom line if u have a warranty on the transmission take it back.

2002 chev venture engine light on after transmission fluid low

low transmission will not turn on the light, only a coincidence, you need to have the code read with a scan tool to fix the problem and turn off the light.

Engine light came on, doesn't up-shift

The transmission is in limp in mode. The check engine light is on because the transmission controller told the engine controller to turn it on. You will have to get the fault codes checked to diagnose the problem. Expect to find a P0700 code in the engine controller. Thats the code for a transmission fault in the trans controller. It could be as simple as an input speed sensor or as complexed as an internal failure. Either way have the transmission fault codes checked for a proper diagnosis.
