Hi, my name is ***** ***** this code, its is saying there is too high of pressure counts , in the line counter in the trans module, and even if you replaced the trans module, the code will not clear until the line counters are cleared from the computer, do you have a scanner that will reset the line counters?

will have one in am snap on solas edge im told will work
Expert:  Tim Mohr replied 2 years ago.
Yes, it will, first thing is to clear the line pressure counts, this will keep the P1745 code form appearing, and when the P1745 code is there, it goes into limp mode, and you will only have 1 forward gear and reverse, the P1745 is just an informational code, saying the line pressure counts were to high, for more than 2000 key cycles, clearing the line counts should solve the problem,these are NOT cleared when clearing codes, it has to be done manually with the scanner,Tim
