Transmission problem
2002 Honda CRV 4 cyl All Wheel Drive Automatic

Hello I have a 2002 crv awd with automatic 4 spd. Trans. It shows a DTC P0780. When the car is cold for 5 min. It will shift ok. After that from 1st to second I need to let up a little to allow the shift or it will rev out and not shift. A few minutes later the "D" light blinks and the trans. Goes into a neutral mode even though its in drive. I can shut it off wait a minute or so then restart the car. The trans. Semi functions to drive back home before it goes into neutral mode again. The trans. Fluid is new and topped off. The car has 90k miles on it. Bad solenoids?

Hi mtboaxaca,

P0780 = Mechanical problem in hydraulic control system.

DTC P0780: MECHANICAL PROBLEM IN HYDRAULIC CONTROL SYSTEM.

NOTE:

This code is caused by an electrical circuit problem and cannot be caused by a mechanical problem in the transmission.

Keep replacement solenoid valves on hand;

i. A/T clutch pressure control solenoid valves A, B, and C

ii. Shift solenoid valves A, B, C, and E.

1. Check whether the scan tool or the HDS indicates another code.
