Message:
getting a p0700 code on my 02 dakota (auto, 4.7L 4x4)...
the other night the truck spun its wheels as i was hitting the gas,
trying to go around a corner...felt like it was stuck in a low gear
or lost power steering for a few seconds...haven't had the same
problem since, but the MIL light remains on...auto trans fluid is
at OK level...

any thoughts/suggestions?

PO700---TRANS FAULT PRESENT---EATX or Aisin transmission controller has an active fault and has
requested MIL illumination via a bus message to the SBEC/JTEC (MIL,
DTC, and freeze-frame data reset following transmission fault clear. I had a 700 code. It turned out to be the Output Speed Sensor on the transmission. (2000 4.7 - 45rfe) With a PO700 It will set a DTC code (Diagnosic Trouble Code) that can not be read by using the key, however autozone or advance can read the DTC code using their code reader. Mine showed the sensor code, I bought a new sensor (40 $) Put it in. Easy, one bolt, took 2 minutes) fixed it. But while the sensor was bad, my transmission was in limp home mode. Put in the new sensor, it immeadiately drove fine but the MIL light stayed on. Anyway, I took it straight to autozone to clear it.

thanks for the info, especially with autozone doing the DTC check...was on my way to autozone this morning, and the MIL light reset itself and went out...so maybe i have a sensor going bad...

Are you absolutely sure you're checking your fluid level correctly? I don't mean to insult you or anything but, I noticed that checking the fluid level correctly makes a big difference in getting an accurate reading. I got the same code that would set and reset intermittently because I was just a little low on fluid. You have to have the tranny at operating temperature, shift into drive then reverse a couple of times then back to drive and hand brake on then check the fluid level. Good luck.

i will check again the fluid level...i followed the procedure listed
in the 02 dakota service manual (the big blue manual) for
checking the fluid...but i will definitely recheck it, since you
received the same type of error...thanks!
