THE P0700 CODE IS JUST SAYING THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT IS ON.

THE P2706 IS A CODE FOR THE MULTI-SELECT SOLENOID , SAYING IT HAS AN OPEN CIRCUIT. the MS solenoid serves primarily to provide 2nd and 3rd gear limp-in operation.

POSIBLE CAUSES ARE

  1. THE SOLENOID
  2. A SHORT OR OPEN IN ONE OR MORE WIRES GOING TO THE SOLENOID
  3. POSSIBLY PCM

IF THIS HAS HELPED PLEASE SELECT ACCEPT

Reply to 74duster's Post: Should I just go and buy the solenoid to put it in the transmission.I have the place to put it in and a hydraulic lift to go under the truck.However,I need to repair the vehicle.Is it difficult to put in? or how do I know if it is the open-wires? Or again do I just buy the solenoid at the parts store?

the diagnosis for this is extremely long and tedious so i would just check around the trans for loose connectors or frayed wires. the most common failure is the solenoid.

when i get to work today i will send you some procedures on the diag and repair process. but if you dont have a multi meter the diag will be almost impossible.
