Arrow Been there, done that!

P1776 is the code for soleniod stuck in low/reverse. This is a fairly common problem and can be prevented most of the time by keeping the fluid clean. Sometimes they leak, but most of the time, they get clogged with debris.

I had this happen to mine because the previous owner didn't change the fluid at the specified inteval and to add insult to injury, the dealer didn't put the dipstick all the way down! Needles to say, mine clogged!

Get the transmission fluid flushed completely and have a new filter installed and install a new solenoid pack. It should work fine after the above maintenance and repair is completed. Change the fluid and filter every 30000 miles. Get it done at the dealership or a GOOD transmission shop. (DO NOT take it to AMMCO!)

Use ONLY ATF+4 fluid! Anyother fluids may cause reduced performance and in some cases, damage.

2004 300M Special...157K miles. Needs more mods!

The solenoid pack is about $150 US dollars. Installation will be around $100USD.

P1776

Look on web for Chrysler Bulletin 21-00804A

The solenoid switch valve is not in the solenoid pack
it is in the valve body

For 2002-2004 LH model only
if the built date range between 3001 & 0603 then
replace the solenooid pack not the valve body

I found this helpful:

Model Engine Transmission
RS/RG 2.4L, 3.3L or 3.8L 41TE
TJ 4.0L 42RLE
DISCUSSION:
If the vehicle operator describes a MIL illumination and the technician finds DTC P1776
Solenoid Switch Valve Latched in LR Position is set the DRBIIIŽ can be used to access
the event data screen and look at the “TRS Code” reading.
NOTE: The solenoid switch valve is not in the solenoid pack it is in the valve body.
TRS Code Reads TR2
If the “TRS Code” displays “TR2” it is an indication that the manual valve was not fully in
the OD position at the time the DTC was set. Check the shifter cable adjustment and
adjust if necessary. Also check the shift control system for excessive friction and/or routing
issues.
TRS Code Reads OD
If the “TRS Code” displays “OD” then a sticky solenoid switch valve is the primary cause.
Perform the proper diagnosis for the valve body. Inspect for foreign material in the solenoid
switch valve and plugs.
**FOR 2002 - 2004 LH MODEL ONLY**
**If replacing the valve body assembly for DTC P1776 Solenoid Switch Valve Latched in
LR Position first inspect the build date on the solenoid pack (Fig. 1) or (Fig. 2). If the build
date range falls in between 3001 and 0603 replace the solenoid pack not the valve body**.

Did you look at the date of the post? 12-31-2006! That might explain the price difference!
