The P0700 trouble code is a code for transmission control module (TCM) failure. Without knowing the other codes, it will not be possible to give you an accurate answer; it all depends on the other codes:

  • If you get a P0755 code, you may have a transmission solenoid pack issue.
  • P0725 indicates a likely crank position sensor issue.

I would suggest having your Check Engine Light diagnosed by a qualified mechanic.
