Default Engine Light Code P0882

Hi, can someone help me with this.
When the engine light came on in my 2006 PT cruiser, i took it to a parts store and they checked out the car and came up with this code. The read out said the following, TCM power input low, ECM has deteced less than 3 volts at the transmission control relay output circuit. 3 probable causes, open or short circuit condition,failed TCM relay, failed transmission solenoid/pressure switch assembly.

I want to trouble shoot this myself, so where can i locate the TCM relay on a 2006 PT cruiser?

It should be in the fuse box under the hood.

But the very first thing I would do is have my battery load tested at a local parts store like Autozone. And if it is good, make sure you have around 14 volts across the battery terminals while the engine is running. This will help assure the alternator is putting out proper voltage.

Over and over again, we see problems like this pop up when overall voltage is low. And a bad battery can cause this. These things are easy to do and cost nothing. So it's a great place to start.

We need more information before we can help you. The 2006 PT Cruiser can be a first generation or second generation. Does your PT Cruiser have a TIPM?

The image below is showing a TIPM.

There is a date of Manufacture on the driver's side door. It will tell you if the PT Cruiser was manufactured in 2005 or 2006.

I know that, mine was in Aug 2005, but it is still a G2.

This is why I ask if it has the TIPM.
I like to verify what the PT Cruiser has before making suggestions.

Alright, I still don't follow...but that's ok.
BTW: I do have a TIPM.
