P0700 Error When Flooring Accelerator
This may be a long shot because so few were sold but I have a 2013 Tahoe Hybrid and I am getting a P0700 code when accelerating very rapidly. Basically I have to floor the accelerator to create the error code. Just accelerating at a fast rate of speed won't do it. If I clear the code it will not come back unless i try flooring the accelerator again. Does anyone know if this is just a normal quirk of the hybrid systems for the Tahoes or is this something I should have the dealer look at?
this is a transmission error pertaining to speed~P0700 - OBD II Trouble Code. ... When the code P0700 is set in the Powertrain Computer, it means that the Powertrain Computer or PCM is seeing greater than a specified RPM difference between the rotational speed of the Input RPM Sensor and the Transmission
P0700 normally indicates that there is another transmission related code. Maybe the scanner reading your codes couldn't pick it up
A PO700 code can be a tricky one to diagnose, usually it means that there is an inconsistency between input speed and output speeds in the transmission, in your case as you only get it when flooring it it is possible that the torque converter clutch maybe slipping or the solenoids aren't sealing properly due to dirty or improper servicing of the transmission fluid. You Don't really need a dealer for this one, any good transmission shop can diagnose this problem, but if it is a converter clutch be ready for some expense.
