Subject: P0748 Governor pressure solenoid circuit
IP: Logged

Message:
My '96 Dakota, 4x4, 3.9l,110,000+ . when left sitting for more than one day will start after about 10 minutes of cranking:(... Very good for starter. I had Auto-zone pull the codes and it is a P0748 Governor pressure solenoid circuit. What is that, or where is that. It also says " The PCM has detected a short to ground, a short to battery, or an open circit condition in the electrical circut for pressure control solenoid "A"". Any help would be appreciated.

Your 96 has a RE transmission

electric gov presure controll check all the
connections on the trans and the grounds

unplug clean and plug back in probably just a
caroaded pin in one of the plugs

drivers side of trans just above shift linkage
8 pin connecter

reset the comp dissconect batt hold key all the
way to start for 2 min

now shut off reconect batt and run the truck
to see if the code returns

If so you may have gotten a new bad sensor or
sol happens a lot but chrysler will give you
another set

There is also on some a check ball in the line
looks like a filter gets dirty and sticks this
will also trip the code
remove
repair
or replace

Try these things and see what happens

That was the first mistake always replace both
sensor and sol

There is realy nothing that goes wrong very often
with the body

I would check all the connections and replace the
other part and go from there

Check all the connections and grounds including
the computer plug

radio schack get a can of connection cleaner
spray than either let dry or blow dry with air

WD40 will also work spry down let sit than spray
out with brake cleaner and let dry

The Jeep has what is called an asian 500 very
similer to the mopar this is behind the 6cyl in
the grand cherokee it is a mopar trans

We just bought a 1998 Dodge Dakota 3.9, and it has the P0748 Code. There are two codes. One, our friend/mechanic says is air intake sensor (1242?) (i am not sure of the code but i looked it up, it said the engine was running too cold?)for the fuel pump needs to be replaced. But I am reading here, that the P0748 code causes the engine not to turn over when you turn the key. In our case, the transmission actually seems fine and the truck drives really nice if you get it started. It just seems after it runs, it will not start again, and after it sits it starts again with some difficulty. There seems to be no transmission or stalling problem. I am a woman (stressed) reading all these forums, so please bear with me I like to learn, I'm just ignorant concerning auto mechanics. I am wondering first, if we can start at the two relays for the transmission, which are #17 and #31. (i read that off the relay cover) we tried the fuel pump relay #29. and it still had same problem (for other problem I mentioned) but I wanted to try the same relay (they're all the same in one area), in #31, and my husband came all unglued, saying it will mess up the computer. so me talking him into taking out #29 fuel pump relay and replacing it, may have messed up the computer? and read the same code, plus still had starting problem as not restarting computer? after replacing it? Do WE NEED TO DISCONNECT THE BATTERY (could it still not turn over as of the computer? but it DID need a new relay?) (and were you saying hold the "ignition key?" to the right for two minutes or is their some reset key when you reset the computer?) I don't want to ask my husband, he's angry at the moment. AND MY REAL QUESTION IS, CAN WE TRY REPLACING THE #17 (says trans) #29, #31 relays before doing anything with the governor pressure sensor solenoid circuit (and do we have to disconnect the battery after replacing them or should we disconnect the battery, THEN replace) The truck runs fantastic in my opinion, once it's started. Possibly something is heating up that doesn't let it start again after it's been running. AND WE DID FIND A VACUUM HOSE by the distributor CLEAR OFF. AFTER CONNECTING IT SHOULD HE HAVE DISONNECTED THE BATTERY since the hose being disconnected (would that not just start "throwing codes"?) I don't want to pay a mechanic for something simple. I also read about the #30 automatic shutdown relay and doubt it is that as there is no sign of stalling or other symptoms of that. but then again, should we replace the two transmission relays, the fuel pump relay and that one anyway? for starters? Or am I just butting in with my husband and mechanic. In my opinion any mechanic would want to make money.

Message:
would also like to tell Gene that the actual Governor Sensor Solenoid seems to be on the undercarriage near the tailpipe by this link i hope posts. "forbidden words were found?" won't let me post a link i think. so, google it and look a little, you'll find a dodge dakota thread with pictures) there are a lot of parts to this kit from what i see, that could go in a lot of places? even in the actual transmission. Looks like pain to tackle this first if it doesn't end up being the actual problem. I'd do what the person who first knows what he's saying, to clean and make sure of connections, even the computer. and i don't know anything really, i'm just here reading as of problem we're having. If I had a clue what connections to check I'd start checking on my own. I do understand that after you clean ... secure connections, to reset the computer and that if you haven't fixed the problem the code will come back.
