Re: P0700 code
Even if the light goes out,the codes don't go away.The pcm turns out the CEL after what it considers 3 "good trips",but the codes are not erased.The PCM will show a stored P0700 and the TCM will have whatever code(s) stored in memory. I think it takes 255 good trips to erase codes,or at least it used to be like that.
An intermittent p0700 can be a lot of things,I see a lot of problems with the ESM,which means electronic shifter module.It's part of the shifter bezel,usually when it goes bad,the prndl in the dash lights up all the gears when the CKE comes on,so if it happens again check that.Best advice I can give is to get it checked so you know exactly what you are dealing with.Oh and the best part,if it is the shifter bezel,since its a Mercedes part,its about $750.It used to be a lot cheaper.All trans parts are overpriced since Mercedes and Chrysler aren't friends anymore
Fiber makes me sad.
