overdrive not working right

I have a 99 JGC limited 4.7l and the overdrive only kicks on at about115km/h and then downshifts at about 100km/h and it downshifts hard. fluid looks good and changed the throttle position sensor with no change. Also check engine light reads a p0700 which relates to the transmission but need to take it to dealer for more info. any suggestions what the problem may be. all other gearss seeem to shift fine. let me know what you think.

Re: overdrive not working right

P0700 Transmission Control System Malfunction. I think that's one for the dealer to figure out. It could be a bad transmission control module next to the coolant reservoir.Maybe try one from a bone yard just make sure they'll let you return it if that doesn't work

Re: overdrive not working right

Had a bit of an issue when I got mine - no overdrive at all!

P0700 on the dash just means that transmission ECU is throwing out a code.

I had an OBD2 scanner and it was telling me 'incorrect gear ratio in 1st'

Usually means one or both of the sensors on the gearbox are shot. Replaced mine (its a cheap part - $36 from memory (each)) and can be done without jacking the car up.

Gearbox was smooth as silk just replacing those two - about an hour for the pair.

Rather specific troubleshooting thread for the error I was getting here

Paul

Re: overdrive not working right

Welcome to the garage Clubman.
Before changing anything check the transmission fluid level and check the fluid for a burnt smell. If thats ok, it can be a good thing to change both the output and input speed sensors. If the transmission is not slipping, that could solve your problem.
