P0871 DODGE - OD Pressure Switch Rationality Fault -- Possible causes - OD Pressure Switch harness is open or shorted - OD Pressure Switch circuit poor electrical connection - Faulty OD Pressure Switch - Internal transmission damage - Faulty Engine Control Module (ECM) - Faulty Transmission Control Module (TCM)


You can reset the code by unplugging the - connector on the battery for about 1 minute and then reconnect. You can also read the codes your self by putting the key in to the ignition and turning it fast from off to on 3 times leaving it on on and the codes will appear in the dash where the odo is.
