Question about Chrysler Voyager

1 Answer

Hi, Got a Chrysler Voyager 3.3 on a 2002. Car in limp mode and speedo not operating. Fault code (P1698 no canbus message) Changed two speed sensors on side of transmission, all fuses ok and re soldered connection behind dash or dials (a forum suggested this could be couse). Please advise next step and or location of TCU (Transmission Contron Unit)so that this could be tested. If possible please also email response to salim_mangera@hotmail.co.uk

How is your transmission shifting?
the reason I ask is because your code is a communication loss code between the TCM and the other module(s). It's not uncommon for the wiring problems to develop in the harness that runs from the PCM in front of the battery to the TCM on the Pass side inner fender. Look around where the harness is tie strapped to the transmission pan. it's common for the wires to break or be full of water especially after somebody has had the pan off or the transmission has been removed for repair. Can also be a wiring problem right at the PCM or TCM connector or the TCM itself TCM is transmission control module)
although not as likely as a wiring issue.
when communication is lost the transmission will go into limp mode which is 2nd gear and stay there. Sometimes it will come back every time the van is shut off. Not an easy fix but on the plus side not an overly expensive one if you're gonna tackle it yourself. You'll need a scanner that will give you input and output speed sensor readings and a wiring diagram. TCM's should be reasonably cheap used or even new, not sure haven't priced one in forever and the wrecking yard are full of them and even the connector(s) should they be required

Abs light stays on also speedo stops working


Hi, I am new to the website. I am an automotive technitian. If the ABS light is on ,and the speedo wont work, your vehicle speed sensor (vss) is likely the cause! The ABS system depends on knowing the individual wheel speed and the overall vehicle speed in order to properly operate. The fact that your speedo also is out tells me that either the sensor is bad or there is a wiring problem. The ABS light will stay on and will probably be in "limp mode" until the problem is solved.....if you live in a snowy or icy place be careful because it probably wont work! If I am right, even a simple code scanner like an auto parts store has for free use will show a vss code since it will affect other systems in the car such as shifting points and fuel trim. I have no history on your car...and dont even know the type of car it is so I hope this has been helpful!!

Car wont shift from 2nd gear and speedometer doesnt work. diagnostic code p0700. what does this mean?


the PO700 code is a generic transmission code. You would need access to a proper scan tool to check for transmission codes. However if you speedo isnt working, it sounds as though you have a bad output speed sensor. This part runs about 60.00 from the dealer, and is fairly easy to install. No speed signal will put the transmission into limp mode, and keep it stuck in 2nd gear.

Code 24 is a vehicle speed signal sensor fault, the sensor most likely does not provide a useable signal until about 25 MPH, when the computer doesn't see any signal after that speed it turns on the light. Make sense?

Limp mode


Have u checked w/ scan tool for codes? If not, have garage, dealer, or parts store (free service at most parts stores) check for stored codes, and as u know, Chrysler is known for their c_rappy trannys,. I just had mine rebuilt at 125k (I changed the fluid and filter every 30k, but still failure). Limp mode is to protect from further damage, so something is going on. If no stored codes, drop the trans pan, check for metal in pan and on magnet, color of fluid, burnt odor? Let me know what u find. good luck
