Ask Your Own Dodge Question
Customer reply replied 7 years ago

code number?

 

Dodge Mechanic: Amedee, Dodge Technician replied 7 years ago
Yeah.... the code number in the computer. The light is on because there is a code number in the computer.

Was the module replaced because there was a code number in the computer?

Customer reply replied 7 years ago
It was changed and brought to riverside in Iron Mt Mi and reset. could something be wrong with the reset or did I fix something that did not need to be fixxed???
Dodge Mechanic: Amedee, Dodge Technician replied 7 years ago
It sounds to me like the transmission control module was not even bad.

Get me the codes in the computer and I will point you in the right direction.

they never gave me any now ones they said it was clear. ??????????????????
Dodge Mechanic: Amedee, Dodge Technician replied 7 years ago
Well, you said the light is on... right? If so, then there is a code in the computer. Just go to auto zone and have them scan the computer for codes and let me know!

I have the old core. should I have that checked?
Dodge Mechanic: Amedee, Dodge Technician replied 7 years ago
NO... just plug the scanner into your computer... don't do anything to your vehicle and let me know if the same codes are in there or if they are different ones..

I have not had a chance to get back to you till now. I just got out of a big snow storm here and now my durango wont shift at all. I cant get it to the shop to check what the code is now. any advice?
Dodge Mechanic: Amedee, Dodge Technician replied 7 years ago
As to what the problem is or what you should do next?
Ask Your Own Dodge Question
Customer reply replied 7 years ago
what next I guess or what the problem could be?
Dodge Mechanic: Amedee, Dodge Technician replied 7 years ago
You need to start by pulling codes from the computer. THis will give us an idea of what the computer "thinks" is going on here causing your shifting issue.
Ask Your Own Dodge Question
Customer reply replied 7 years ago
ok but do you think we could get codes off of the old core? that is the one the shop still has or do we have to pull the new computer? that is going to take time.
Dodge Mechanic: Amedee, Dodge Technician replied 7 years ago
NO...Just use a scanner and pull codes from the diagnostic port under the dash.
Ask Your Own Dodge Question
Customer reply replied 7 years ago
ok I need some time to get a hold of one of the scanner again. might be a day or so thanks for your time. be back soon as I can.
Dodge Mechanic: Amedee, Dodge Technician replied 7 years ago

hey, now I had a auto shop come to my house with a big machine. it said the low reverse pressure soleniod circut ( spelling ) was bad. my question is, did the control molule have to be changed also if, this works???????????????????
Dodge Mechanic: Amedee, Dodge Technician replied 7 years ago
Hello!

Sorry for the delay!

From what you are telling me, no... I don't think the module was bad.

I hope this helps. You can always accept my answer now, and repost back again later on if you have any more questions. If you want to discuss it some more just hit "reply", it's free to do so otherwise don't forget to hit "accept" and leave positive feedback if you found my answer helpful.
