US BULLETIN No: 05-001/05 DATE: 01/2005
CAN BULLETIN No: N/A
APPLIES TO: 2002-2005 MPV AFFECTED VINs: Lower than JM3 LW28** 50 539650
SUBJECT: O/D OFF Indicator Light Flashing / MIL with DTC P0706
BULLETIN NOTES: Applicable to vehicles produced before Nov. 5, 2004
DETAILS:

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.

REPAIR PROCEDURE

  1. Verify customer concern.
  2. Replace Transaxle Range (TR) Switch according to the Workshop Manual (Section 05-17 TRANSAXLE RANGE (TR) SWITCH REMOVAL/INSTALLATION).
  3. Verify repair.
