Car does not run ,I check the code ,it is P0700
Because it is not starting, you should replace the Crankshaft sensor (above the oil filter, back of the engine)-it will cause a P0700-I have a 99 SL2, 178,000 miles
DTC) CODE # P0700....Transmission Control System (MIL Request)
Translation: Transmission Control Module (TCM) Malfunction or Failure.
P0700 Information Code
The Transaxle Control Module (TCM) monitors the malfunction of sensors
and actuators relating to transaxle control. If any malfunction is
detected, the TCM informs the PCM by sending a signal (P0700 code).
P0700 means that a code has been set in the TCM.
This code is for information ONLY. If this code is present, check for transaxle codes.
So basically, the P0700 code is telling you to check the TCM for a
transaxle DTC. The TCM can not turn on the check engine light so it has
the PCM do it. The dealer probably saw the code P0700 and went to the
TCM and pulled out the code stored there telling them the Transmission
Solenoid Assembly (TSA) is bad.
This is a good example of understanding what the codes actually mean.
If the manual you looked at said the TCM is bad and to replace the TCM
when you see a P0700, then it is wrong.
