In the book it says it has a saftey deley where it has to be warmed up or it will go into saftey mode... but now i went to start my car this morning and it idioled for about 2 seconds then shut off... i tried giveing it gas but it still shut off. The security light is on and will not go off... think it is a defect with the securtiy

I have a 2006 sxt dodge magnum that is giving me the same issues (exact issues) that you are experiencing. Have you located the cause or had the issues resolved?

I'm Jacc335,I got your email of Mar 16. I have not had any issues with my trans in my 05 magnum. I removed the fill tube cap, got dip stick from junk yard, I'm going to add trans cooler later this summer .The sealed trans draws in water but does not vent it out.

Well carried car to dealer and they said that it was ""veh had codes P0700, P0703 in correct gear ration. Codes are not current cleared codes and test drove if codes come back trans will need further diagnoses""... I was not told what the codes were or anything just rying to dig deeper into my pocket.. Looked codes up on net and found that P0700 is Transmission Control System Malfuction..P0703 is Brake Switch Circuit Malfuction... Has any one had such a thing happen Please let me know what the fix was??? Thanks

I have a 2008 SXT that I bought 3 weeks ago with 22K on it. Within 3 days I had this exact same issue. The shift from first to second gear in low RPM (around 1800) will clunk or even shudder. Best way I can describe is when you're driving a manual transmission and you shift at too low of an RPM and the car almost stalls. Took it to the dealership twice already, and they ran a TSB on it to flash the transmission computer as well as a quick learn. Still does it. And now I can feel it when it shifts in other gears. Also, it seems to slip at higher gears but only at low RPMs. Anyone else have this "fixed" and can give me some advice?
