    The Transmission/Transaxle Controller monitors the malfunction of sensors and actuators relating to Transmission/Transaxle Control. If any malfunction is detected, they inform the PCM by sending a signal - By illuminating the MIL and by setting the P0700 code.

    P0700 means that a code has been set in the Transmission/Transaxle Controller.

    This code is for information ONLY.

    If P0700 is present, check for Transmission/Transaxle codes.

    Chrysler/Dodge/Plymouth P0700 means that "EATX or Aisin transmission controller has an active fault and has requested MIL" as noted by Mr. Shiftright. This SBEC III or JTEC DTC indicates that the EATX or Aisin controller has an active fault and has illuminated the MIL via a CCD (EATX) or SCI (Aisin) message. The spscific fault must be acquired from the EATX via CCD or from the Aisin via ISO-9141. So, to make a long story short, you need to get the specific problem code from the dealer or a mechanic that has the ability to read EATX or Aisin specific codes.A sneaky way of getting you to pay the dealer 100 bucks just to read the code! Here's what you do first. Check the fluid level of the tranny. 9 times out of 10 it's just a "low fluid" condition. Only other posibility is a bad sensor that might run you 80 bucks to replace. Good luck!
