Transmission problem
1996 Chrysler Town and Country 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 152000 miles

Hi my van had five codes come up p1768, p0736, p0731, p0720, and p0305. My main concern is when I drive the van it is not always shifting in to second gear and the speedometer moves back in forth. I am not driving it, just to repair it. I would appreciate any advice on what the problem may be and how to fix and refrain from "damaging it any further". Thanks Roxy

Do you
have the same problem?

DTC P1768 will set when TCM senses less than 3 volts at transmission control relay output (switched battery) terminals at TCM, prior to TCM energizing relay.
Possible Cause
Low battery voltage.
Open fused B+ circuit to transmission control relay.
Open ground circuit.
Transmission control relay output circuit shorted to ground.
Open transmission control relay circuit.
Defective transmission control relay.
Malfunctioning TCM.
DTC P0736 will set if ratio of input RPM to output RPM does not match given gear ratio.
Possible Cause
Low battery voltage.
Reverse pressure less than 180 psi (12.7 kg/cm2 ).
Leaking L-R seals.
L-R switch valve stuck in 1st gear position
DTC P0731 will set if ratio of input RPM to output RPM does not match given gear ratio.
Possible Cause
Low battery voltage.
UD and L-R pressures less than 95 psi (13.7 kPa) at 2000 RPM.
Delayed 1st or Reverse engagement.
Coasting to stop downshift bump.
UD and L-R clutch volume indexes out of specifications.
UD pressure is less or greater than 5 psi (.73 kPa) in 4th gear.
Leaking L-R seals.
Faulty L-R accumulator seals.
Stuck L-R switch valve.
Faulty UD accumulator seals.
DTCs P0720 will set if there is an excessive change in output RPM in any gear. DTC sets as a one trip fault and will take 5 minutes of substituted operation before transaxle is in limp-in mode.

Damaged ignition wiring.
Open input speed sensor signal circuit.
Malfunctioning sensor.
