Default P0700 Error Code On PT

My wife's 2001 PT has an error code P0700 which is listed as a transmission control system malfunction from a post at this website. The car runs ok and she is helping her sister evacuate her home during the fires there. I have 2 questions...1. Can she continue to drive it safely until she is able to get back to Az.? 2. Does anyone have any information on what costs might be involved to solve this apparent problem? Thanks.....

Thumbs up Re: P0700 Error Code On PT

CREWZIN, from the posts and replys about the P0700 code apparently someone with the ability to read the specific codes with a scanner will have to tell us what the cause of the check engine light to appear and the P0700 code to show. My wife said the light went off and it is driving ok so she is returning to Phoenix this AM....Thanks for the help.

Floyd,

Good enough. Hope the light stays off, but I have a feeling it might come back. Safe trip to the wife.

You didn't say what the mileage on your 01 but if you haven't had the transaxle flushed, or don't know if it's ever been, I would recommend you having it done. The Chrysler 41TE tranny isn't known for it's longevity and anything you can do to help it out would be in your favor.

I've got the same code among others. Says the ecm has received a signal that the transmission control module has a fault. It has 75000 miles.

So you're going to take it to your local Chrysler dealer or a tranny repair shop and have it scanned to see exactly what code or codes (malfunctions) are causing your problem, RIGHT? If you read the posts above that is what was the next step to take after you get a P0700 code. It means there are other codes under the P0700 that you must use a scanner to diagnose.

tirs, especially if you read the posts above this one.

Jerry
