On some vehicles, the O/D OFF indicator may be flashing and/or the MIL is ON with DTC P0706 stored.
The Transaxle Range (TR) Switch electrical contact area for the D and 3 ranges may not be large enough. This may cause the Transaxle Control Module (TCM) to misjudge the position of the gear shift lever, and set the DTC.
To prevent this concern, the electrical contact area in the Transaxle Range (TR) Switch has been increased to allow detection of the D range signal in a wider range.
Customers having this concern should have their vehicle repaired using the following repair procedure.
