While driving stopped off for gas, shut the car off and went to start up the car again and the battery was dead, fixed by cleaning the battery cable ends, car starts fine now, but will not move. Had it towed home. I put the car into drive and does not move in any gears selected, nor in reverse. Checked transmission oil while running and its up to level and smells and looks red as normal. Scanned the computer for codes and got a P1751 code - transmission throttle position minimum range performance? I do not know much about this transmission and need help to a fix.
hope you can help.
Thanks.

It may be one of the items shown which is a relay/or pcm or wiring issue. If you also get a code 54 it's something internal in trans. See pics.

Hi, I traded the fuel relay and the A/T control relay seeing they have the same numbers on them, the car starts fine so I'm assuming the A/T relay is okay. But what I did notice and forgot to mention before was I can hear a faint clicking noise when I take it out of park and put it into drive or reverse, not a grinding noise but like a electronic clicking sound that last for 3 seconds then stops. No code 54. I don't have a manual for the car so i'm a bit of a lose on testing stuff here. Would you have a wiring diagram of the relay circuit, also I have no idea on how to test the PCM or where it's located. Thank you!

Pcm is left to pros as they have to be programmed to your car or it won' t start due to anti theft. You can check wiring etc. The clicking may be the solenoids trying to apply in trans and quit when nothing happens. Check where relay plugs in for corrosion etc. And try tweaking the prongs then put dielectric grease on them for better contact auto pars sometimes call it bulb grease. But I really think you should have a trans guy look at this as it may be low pressure or it may be the a/t control solenoid in pic. See pics.

Okay, good signal from the PCM wire to the A/T relay and 12 volt. All relay connections are clean and tight, so perhaps its the shift solenoid, is there a resistant check on the coils of the solenoid and if they check out then I'll have to have a transmission place check out the car.
Thanks again.
