Dodge neon: well maintained..p0700..first gear..cam shaft sensor

Resolved Question:

Hello,
I have a Dodge neon 2005 with 85k miles that has been well maintained that gave me a p0700 p1775 code. The first time this occurred the car would not change from first gear. I changed the cam shaft sensor and the car worked perfectly. The light turned on again about three months later. I decided to take the car to a mechanic and he did exactly the same thing (even though I told him that I thought it had to be something else, but he said that he was 119% sure it was that sensor). Now, three months later, the light is on with the same message. Is there something I am missing? Is there a recall on this car that I am not aware of? Is this expensive to fix?

Thanks!

The codes you are getting are for the transmission so any parts you put on the engine will not repair the problem. There are 4 possible areas for this code(P1775)

P1775-SOLENOID SWITCH VALVE LATCHED IN TCC POSITION

A faulty pcm, wiring, an internal trans issue and a faulty solenoid pack.

Any of these can get expensive depending on the experience of the mechanic you go to, (I think I wouldn't go back to the same one you went to the first time, he should have known that the cam sensor would not fix a trans code)

We changed the solenoid pack, and the issue is gone.
Thanks.
