Transmission Mechanic: David Craig, Auto Mechanic replied 7 months ago

ok, that code is telling you that there are other transmission related codes. you will need a scan tool specific to Ford transmissions to read the codes. P0701 FORD Description The Transmission Control Module (TCM) has detected other transaxle Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTC) settings this DTC enables limp mode.

Ask Your Own Transmissions Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
cheap one. does not describe the codes .I have to go on the computer to find out what they mean.
Transmission Mechanic: David Craig, Auto Mechanic replied 7 months ago

ok, you won't be able to read transmission codes with that if it didn't cost more than 400.00

what would have caused this problem right after trans service?
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
I am trying to find out what they could have done to my trans.
Transmission Mechanic: David Craig, Auto Mechanic replied 7 months ago

I have no idea what the fault is and I have no idea what they did or didn't do. the code is telling you there are other transmission faults which could be any of the 60-75 of them
