Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
Check engine light came on, but car not overheating. Testing shows i need transmission control system. Is this a recall issue? P0700, P0711
(1) Answer
Check engine light comes on for anything that affects vehicle emissions (pollution). If the transmission has a 'fault' that is effecting performance or in any way raising the pollution levels directly or indirectly it will set the P0700 code you mentioned. P0700 is a generic code for a transmission fault , if A/T is scanned , most likely will have other more specific codes to aid in diagnosis. Dealer or better equipped shop not parts store code reader is needed.
