I have a 2004 Dodge with transmission problem!!! I have had two transmission in this car and i'm still dealing with it not shifting and the transmission light coming on. It seems to do it now when it get warm and then the light will come on and it wont shift...But if i let it sit for a few hours it will shift again...What could this be??? I feel like everytime i take it into the shop all they are doing is taking my money and not fixing the problem!!!! I need help on this!!!

I'm changed the fluid and filter. There was a trouble code that said that the o2 sensor was giving the trans bad info. So I changed it. It still has a catalitic converter code but that shoudlnt' have anything to do with it.
I think it's the trans control module but I don't know where it's located. could someone please tell me where it is so I can change it. I think that's the problem and if not I'll have the trans rebuilt.
The dealer tells me the control module is part of the pcu. and it's 590 bucks exchange. I hate to spend that kind of money on a part that I don't even know what the problem is. Please help
Thanks in advance

open hood and look behind the driverside headlight connected to the fender well underneath the cruise control modgel which is a round looking bottle piece of plastic it will be a sliver colored aluminum box thats bolted on with two 10 milameter bolts it will have 3 or 4 electrical plug in jacks depending on the year of the car in it coming from the transmission wiring harness but pulling up the codes the dealer ship told me i had the same problem but i went looking for the problem now my transmission is seating on my work bench in 500 pieces turns out i have stripped out clutch housing flow gears at the cost of 370 bucks so i need a new transmission gonna get one at pull apart for 75 dollars so good luck

So it wasn't the computer it was the trans?
Did you replace the computer?
And if so it still didn't resolve the problem?
I'm not going to attempt to rebuild myself. I can rebuild rear wheel drive trannys but this front drive stuff is way past my ability.

it usually goes into limp mode when coasting to a stop or to slower speeds. Today I tried something new. I would click it into neutral when coming to a stop and it never did it once I tried it that way.
This is sounding like it's in need of a rebuild. It doesn't seem like the computer could do that.

My 99 dodge intrepid gives a check engine light and goes into limp mode at times after either a long drive, or driving in warm weather. After a few starts, the check engine light goes off and the car drives normally. It has OBD codes P0700 and P0605, which seem to say there is an ROM failure in the transmission control module. I can't find the location of the TCM in any repair manual. Where is it, and what does it take to replace it?

it could be in the brain or the transmission modgel it is a electrical issue usually costing 500 or more you would need to take it to a shop to get it tested to locate the problem and thats more money for testing .these cars are costley i will never get another one....

"it could be in the brain or the transmission modgel it is a electrical issue usually costing 500 or more you would need to take it to a shop to get it tested to locate the problem and thats more money for testing .these cars are costley i will never get another one."
All these electronically controlled transmissions are costly to repair and that is about the only kind of automatics in any car today.
You might check out Allpar.com in the transmission section. There is great information there to save money when the transmission brain goes.
