What does transmission control system malfunction mean?

What the P0700 code means. P0700 is set when the PCM detects a malfunction in the transmission control system. This malfunction causes the vehicle to set a Check Engine Light and trigger a failsafe mode. Once the failsafe mode is set it will remain until the fault is repaired or normal operation is detected.

Can I drive with P0700 code?

The vehicle should avoid being driven when presenting with the trouble code P0700. It could get caught in one gear and cause not only a safety hazard for you, but for those around you as well.

What does the Transmission Control System TCS malfunction mean?

Transmission Control System TCS Malfunction. This diagnostic trouble code (DTC) is a generic powertrain code, which means that it applies to OBD-II equipped vehicles. Although generic, the specific repair steps may vary depending on make/model.

How do I know if my transmission control system is bad?

If there is an automatic transmission control system fault, a transmission-specific DTC (diagnostic trouble code) will set in the TCM. Since there is no “Check Transmission Light,” the ECM sets an informational DTC P0700 and illuminates the MIL or CEL (malfunction indicator lamp or check engine light).

What does the p0700 code on the Transmission Control Module mean?
