Hello, I have a 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee that had the engine light turn on this morning. I looked up the code and it showed up as P0700...transmission issue. This car is rarely driven (once or twice a month) and has around 150,000 miles on it. Everything seems to be running fine, shifts about as well as expected for a higher mileage vehicle. Was wondering if anyone could speculate what's wrong with it and what am I looking at to get it fixed? P0700

Code

That is just a generic code put there to alert you to a more specific code that will be stored in the TCM. You will need a professional level scan tool to b e able to access that module.

Do not rely on the key on off trick. it will not display all codes....
Try a scan - they are free at autozone advance orielys parts stores...
If scanned and only code is p0700 check trans relay* it may not be working and the trans is not communicating with PCM.
*trans relay and fuses in PDC
PS hopefully NO remote starter is in jeep.

I seriously doubt Autozone, O'reily, etc equipment will read the TCM. You are going to need some professional tools to do that.
