first thing to do is to check the voltage at the tps. it should read around .45vdc closed. and around 5.0vdc when fully opened

P0700 DODGE - Transaxle Control System Malfunction

The transaxle Control Module (TCM) monitors the malfunction of sensors and actuators relating to transaxle control. When the TCM detects a malfunction with the control, a signal is send to the Engine Control Module (ECM) to trigger the Engine Light or Service Engine Soon light. The ECM stores the P0700 code and it means the TCM detected a malfunction with the transaxle controls.

you will need to have the tcm interrogated with a tcm capable scan tool to pull the fault codes from it.

Hi, My name is ***** ***** for the delay.

I will do my best to assist you.

sense you get the p0123 code,you may want to try cleaning the throttle body first,sometimes the throttle body can get dirty with black soot and cause this problem...you are getting the 700 code because the computer is picking up a problem that may be caused by the p0123 code..

i will give you some tests/checks for these codes that will help you find the exact problem

thanks
