Default P0700 code

I've read several posts about the P0700 code. Do I have this correct...the code is a generic code that the transmission told the ECM to generate. The code can't be read from the TCM unless we go to a dealer or transmission shop that has the proper scan tool? This code could represent any number of errors the transmission could have?

That is correct. It's simply telling you that you have a deeper underlying problem that the "key dance" will not extract information on. You need to go to your dealer, good local mechanic or tranny shop that can retrieve these codes for you.

So is there a separate connection to get the tranny codes? I got the same codes with my scanner as the dealer - P0700, P0562 and P0750.

We already answered about the P0700 code.

DIAGNOSTIC TROUBLE CODE (DTC) - P0562 SYSTEM VOLTAGE (ENGINE SIDE) TOO LOW

The ignition voltage on the ignition feed circuit to terminal 7 at the ECM is controlled by the engine control module (ECM).
If there is a voltage fluctuation and the voltage dips below the calibrated level ,a system voltage Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) will automatically set.
---------------------------------------------------------

P0750
That code says either that the low/reverse solenoid or the low/reverse pressure switch operated by that solenoid, inside the transmission, is faulty; or it may be an electrical fault related to the circuit that operates that solenoid or the output circuit of the transmission control relay may be at fault. If it is none of those, then it could be the transmission controller (computer) that is itself the cause.
It is best diagnosed with a shop-type code reading system with an accessory transmission diagnostic module.


Both answers from a Google search.

Thanks CREWZIN -

I appreciate your reply. I have been doing searches trying to gain as much insight as possible. I just couldn't tell from what I've found if there was a different place on the transaxle to get the specific readings that the dealer, repair shop or trans shop would access. What I found eluded to that but since I got the same exact readings I am curious.

Here's the deal - I found an '06 Touring in your neck of the woods that I purchased for my daughter back in August. It had only 8700 miles on it, now 1k more. Last week the trans acted up and using my handheld scanner I got those readings. After debating I elected to bring it to the dealer this trip. He came back saying it's the solenoid pack, the repair to the tune of just under 600 including tax - being like 3 hours labor overall plus parts. So I'm trying to figure if I'm getting taken. It seems like this is not an uncommon problem.

Any thoughts ?

Again, thanks for your input.

I'm not sure how common replacing the solenoid pack is but my son's mother-in-law just had to have it done for several hundred dollars about a year ago.

If you go to PT Crew and join that forum (free) they have a section called "The Mod Bible". In that Bible is instructions on Do-it-Youself changing of the solenoin pack.
