Shawn :

Hi, Thank you for asking your question on JustAnswer, my name is XXXXX XXXXX I will be assisting you today with your question.

Shawn :

Based on your description, the most common cause of the problem you are having is a defective instrument cluster, however with the PO705 code I would double check the DTR (Digital Transmission Range) sensor and it's connectors for any possible damage or misalignment of the sensor. If you need further instructions let me know.

Customer:

OK thank you


 


 


 


 


Can you tell me where the DTR sensor is located?"
