I started the truck today after sitting for a week at the shop and drive to the end of the lot, and back up kinda fast to get somethings out of the tow truck, and the SES light illuminates. Drive to the closest Discount Auto (dont have a scanner to read this new of a truck) in first gear the whole way and they pull P0700 and P0846. Now before anyone flogs me about reading what those codes are, I have!
P0846 Trans Fluid Pressure sensor/switch B ckt range/perf
P0700 Trans control sys malf.
After sitting in the parking lot for ten minutes, the SES went off and never came back on with a ten mile drive home. Trans shifted fine and is showing no probelms now.
My question is, could the fluid have been too cold and me driving in reverse so fast (being an idiot) or the sensor just being too cold for too long have been my problem. Usually the truck sits in a nice garage, but I have left her out for a few weeks to prove to a few at work a Dmax can start in the extreme cold better than there Fords!
Like I said the trans is shifting fine now, but it was acting stupid for a short while, so I am just asking for opinions.
