Q: A/T Governor Pressure Sensor codes P1762 P1763

asked by on September 15, 2017

My check engine Light came on, so I got it tested. Two codes came up. First code: P1762 A/T Governor Pressor Sensor Offset Volts too High/Low Second code: P1763 A/T Governor Pressure Sensor Signal Too High. It's a little sluggish getting to speed., and In between some gears it revs then shifts. 2003 Dodge Dakota 3.9L v6

My car has 124000 miles.

Hi Pat. Thanks for contacting us today. The codes you’ve listed are Dodge specific OBD-II codes that indicate that the Governor pressure sensor is either faulty or relaying false information to the ECU. This is likely the source of your performance issue. The problem is that this code can also be caused by internal damage inside the transmission, the sensor being faulty itself or the electrical harness connected to the sensor. The easy diagnosis and repair is to replace the harness and sensor, clear all stored error codes and see if this problem is resolved. If not, the problem is mechanical inside your transmission, which will require a specialist to inspect or repair.

2003Nissan Altima 2.5s.... while driving at highway speed {60} the car lost all power and died and all dash lights went off. A second or two later all the lights on the dash and headlights as well as radio came back on. I tried to put it in neutral and restart it while it was coasting but the starter wont engage to try and start motor. I have checked all fuses and fusible links, all good. I recently replaced head gasket and it had been running just fine. I put it on a code reader and got multiple codes. U1000, U1001, P0183, P1454, P1612, P1124, P0507 I`m lost as to what it could be and I dont have the money to take it to a shop to get it fixed. I only have the 1 car and need it to get back and forth to work.
