most common cause
1- VSS ( vehicle speed sensor
2- output & input shaft sensors on the transmission
3- defective instrument cluster
if you get is scanned with a Chrysler scanner or equivalent it will narrow down to what is failing ?

This Bulletin Applies To Vehicles Equipped With 41TE, 42RLE or 45RFE Transmissions. DISCUSSION: When servicing an automatic transmission on any of the vehicles listed above, Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTC's) displayed relating to transmission solenoids, may be misleading. The following DTC's: P0755, P0750, P0760, P0765, P0770, P2706, could be displayed indicating solenoid faults when the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) is actually at fault. If any of these DTC's are encountered, Check the Powertrain Control Module manufacture date. The date is shown in the Module Serial Number on the label attached to the front of the module. The serial number is ***** 14 digit alpha numeric code which is located on the bottom of the part label. A sample of the number is ***** below: MODULE S/N T65EH2333D55N6

Hello my name is ***** ***** I can help you. Please reply if you still need help on the issue. I am familiar with this problem
Good, I believe I have seen this problem before. Give me a few minutes to verify from the codes you gave
Does your speedometer work?
ABS light on?
Can you do a bulb check at this time? See if the ABS light comes on when you turn the key on and then it goes out?
Even when you turn the key on and everything lights up?
Even the ABS light? It must illuminate and then go out
Ok, that's good.
If you start your vehicle and these codes are still present, you should have a ABS light on.
This is how it works. The ABS gets information from the wheel speed sensors and communicates that information to the Transmission control module. If the ABS module does not communicate that information then the TCM does not know how fast you are going in order to shift properly. Does this make sense?
It goes off when you start it up?
No, it is critical that your ABS system is working properly or your transmission will go into limp in mode
From what it sounds like, I really think you have either a failing ABS module or more than one wheel speed sensors going out
Yes, but you have to clear the codes first either with a battery disconnect or a scan tool. This will probably work right now if your ABS light is off.
It really sounds like the problem is intermittent.
No, if you disable the ABS, your transmission will stay in limp in mode. Try and disconnect both battery cables and touch them together for a few seconds to clear the memory. Then hook both of them back up to the battery. You should be able to drive normally again until the ABS screws up again
Your welcome. Can you please tell me how you got the codes?
If you can clear the memory like we talked about and drive it again and it acts up, try to get the codes again. You can go to autozone or Oreillys and they will read it for free. However you retrieve them, I really would like to see which ones come back.
Thanks for your patience and time. You can rate me now and I will keep helping you or if you don't feel like I have answered your question yet you can wait till tomorrow.
That's fine, glad to help and good luck.
Ok, sometimes it works sometimes it don't. The next step would be to try to use a scan tool to delete the codes and then drive the vehicle. If that still doesn't work, it is very possible you have an ABS module failure. You would have to find a way to communicate via scan tool with the ABS module to find out what specific codes it has.
It is also possible, but not likely, that your fuses to the ABS module could be blown. I highly doubt it though.
P0700 is a generic code that just says you have a trouble code in the TCM
P0500 is for the vehicle speed sensor
P0731 is a code for gear ratio error in 1st gear.
The reason why your speedometer is not working is because of the P0500.
The reason why you transmission is not working is because of the P0500.
You must fix the P0500 code first. In order to that you must scan the ABS module to find out what codes it has.
With a scan tool
You can go to Oreileys or Autozone and ask for a scan tool capable of reading ABS codes. Do not let them sell you a regular can tool. It has to be able to comm with the ABS module and find the ABS specific codes
