Intrepid 2003 and P0700

Hi guys,

Here I am with the post which seems to be very popular. I've been doing some research but its like going up and down the hill. Sometimes problem looks rather simple then 5 minutes later its a nightmare so hopefully you guys can help me out.

I have 2003 intrepid 2.7L with 107000 miles, from what i know nothing has been done to a car. Few days ago transmission started acting up and if it went down to 1st gear it would just stay there until i restarted the engine.

Went to Auto Zone and 3 codes popped up:
P0700 (Transaxle control system fault)
P1776 (Solenoid switch valve latched in LR position) Explanation: The TCM has detected that the LR pressure is high)
-P0841 (Low/Reverse (LR) pressure switch rationality fault) Explanation: The TCm has detected a pressure switch open or closed at incorrect time

I know that there's a lot of info on the site but i just get lost with all the terminology so please help me figure this out. I want to know what would be the best thing to do right now to get my baby running again (selling car or taking to a mechanic is out of question... at least for now heh)

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Most likely you will need a rebuilt valve body or at a minimum new solenoid pack.

Im thinking of changing solenoids and speed sensor if that doesn't help then the valve body. How hard or better yet how much time would it take me to do that?

Easy job.

Raise the vehicle so you can get at the transmission. Remove the million bolts securing the transmission oil pan. Remove the filter. Remove the bolts securing the valve body and it will lower out. Solenoids and valve body will be at your complete disposal.

Good time for a fluid and filter swap.

Speed sensors are found on the drivers side of the transmission housing. Easy access.

I had the same issue (P700) that also showed other codes.... swapped the speed sensors & was still there... took it to trans shop and had the solenoid pack changed along with fluid and filter (approx. $600 with taxes) and problem was fixed. that was 3-4 years ago...

There is a TSB that decides if your tranny needs just the 'noids or a rebuilt valvebody (which includes the 'noids)

2002 Chrysler 300M Special V6-3.5L VIN G
A/T - MIL ON/DTC P1776 Set


A/T - MIL ON/DTC P1776 Set


NUMBER: 21-008-04 REV. A

GROUP: Transmission

DATE: October 16, 2004

THIS BULLETIN SUPERSEDES TECHNICAL SERVICE BULLETIN 21-008-04, DATED JUNE 1, 2004. ALL REVISIONS ARE HIGHLIGHTED WITH **ASTERISKS** AND INCLUDE AN ADDITIONAL MODEL YEAR AND A UPDATED DISCUSSION.

SUBJECT:
MIL Illumination - DTC P1776 Solenoid Switch Valve Latched in LR Position

MODELS:

2004 (AN) Dakota

2004 - 2005 (CS) Pacifica

2003 - 2004 (JR) Sebring Convertible/Sebring Sedan/Stratus Sedan

2003 - 2004 (KJ) Liberty

2003 - 2004 (KJ) Cherokee (International Markets)

**2002** - 2004 (LH) 300M/Concorde/Intrepid

2003-2004 (PL) Neon/SX2.0

2003 - 2005 (PT) PT Cruiser

2003 - 2005 (RG) Chrysler Voyager (International Markets)

2003 - 2005 (RS) Town & Country/Voyager/Caravan

2003 - 2004 (TJ) Wrangler
NOTE :Refer to the following table for specific applications.

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 DRBIII(R) 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**

NOTE :The first three characters are the day of the year, the fourth character is the year, ie. 3001 is the 300th day of 2001.

POLICY:
Information Only

Hmmm there's so many things that can be done to either easy this problem or make it less expensive. Since i don't have much time I'll probably end up buying solenoids and valve body. Ill try just the solenoids first and if that doesn't help then install valve body. Does that sound right or i shouldn't even bother and put the whole thing?
Just to make sure though, transmission im looking for is 2G LH? (i have 2003 ES 2.7L)

Guess that means you need to dis-assemble it and then order parts as appropriate?

Or just buy a rebuilt Valve Body Assy. with the Solenoid Pack? Your choice!

That would be ideal Ronbo but i live in brooklyn and dont have space to work on my car. Somehow i have to drive to my friends about an hr away, take it apart and hopefully fix it so that i can go back home.

Could you guys please tell me if this would work.Im confused though if this is just a valve body or one with solenoid pack:

Alternate/OEM Part Number(s): 4539766, TCS96, TKS14

Honestly I would rather buy a combo and call it a day
