what was your question specifically about this? you have not really posted a question...
Customer: replied 7 months ago.
The car is throwing the p0706 and p0700 and going into fail safe mode. What do I need to fix it.
Expert:  Steve replied 7 months ago.
P0700 is meaningless, it just says the transmission is requesting a check engine light
Expert:  Steve replied 7 months ago.
the other code relates to the transmission position switch at the transmission itself being faulty or damaged or having a wiring/connection issue. the fix will be to check the wiring/connection and ultimately likely a replacement of the switch
