DTC P1700: O/D OFF INDICATOR CIRCUIT MALFUNCTION
NOTE:O/D OFF switch is also referred to as Mode switch.

NOTE:For circuit reference, see CONNECTOR IDENTIFICATION and/or WIRING DIAGRAMS.

Trouble Shooting Hints
Possible causes:
Short circuit to ground.
O/D OFF switch malfunction.
Diagnostic Procedure
Ensure all appropriate connections are clean and tight. Repair as needed. If connections are okay, go to next step.
Turn ignition switch to ON position. Access TCM connector. DO NOT disconnect connector. Using DVOM, measure voltage by backprobing between TCM harness connector terminal No. 45 and ground. See Fig. 17. Battery voltage should be present when O/D OFF switch is released and zero volts when O/D OFF switch is pressed. If voltage is as specified, go to step 5. If voltage is not as specified, go to next step.
Access O/D OFF switch connector. DO NOT disconnect connector. Using DVOM, measure voltage by backprobing between O/D OFF switch terminals No. 3 and 6. Zero volts should be present with O/D OFF switch depressed (O/D disabled), battery voltage should be present with O/D OFF switch released (O/D enabled). If voltage is as specified, go to next step. If voltage is not as specified, replace O/D OFF switch.
Check wiring between TCM and O/D OFF switch. Repair as needed. If wiring is okay, go to next step.
Reconnect all harness connectors. Clear DTC. Road test vehicle. Retrieve DTC. If DTC P1700 is still present, replace TCM. See TRANSAXLE CONTROL MODULE under REMOVAL & INSTALLATION. If DTC P1700 is no longer present, malfunction is repaired.
