Dodge Durango DTC P1762

Q. Vincent, I have a 2000 Dodge Durango with a 5.9 liter V-8. It has a 44RE transmission and I keep getting an intermittent trouble code P1762. I know it has something to due with the governor. How can I go about trouble shooting to see if it is a sensor or what?

A. Our last Governor was a cool Governor. I even had a bumper sticker that said "My Governor Can Beat Up Your Governor". But he is thinking about running for President now, so there is hope.

Oh, you mean the transmission governor. Sorry about that.

P1762 - Governor Pressure Sensor (GPS) Offset Volts Too Low Or High. This code will set if the governor pressure is out of range in Park or Neutral for 1.3 seconds. Three consecutive bad 3.0 second tests and sump temperature is greater than 50° F and less than 260° F are required to set the code.

Some of the possible causes are:

  • Transmission fluid level and condition
  • Powertrain Control Module
  • Sensor ground circuit open
  • Intermittent GPS signal
  • 5 volt supply circuit open inside transmission
  • GPS ground circuit open inside transmission
  • Bad GPS

There is little you can do to troubleshoot the system with out a Chrysler DRB scan tool. There are some voltage and resistance tests you can do and I would suggest looking in the Motors Transmission Manual for the proper procedures. You can find the Motors Transmission Manual in the Reference Section of your local Public Library.
