OK. So, yeah, it's been forever since I posted because we sold our beloved 2005 T&C several years ago (WHY???!!!). But never the less-we bought a Volkswagen Routan SE (YES_I know this is a T&C forum). 2010 model with a lot of nice features. I did my research (I thought) and decided it was nothing more than a T&C with a VW badge on it. All the powertrain parts are Chrysler. The interior and electronics are VW.
Short story-I broke a valve spring, bent the valve and have been fiddling with it along and along. Well I finally got the valve and spring replaced the other day which was actually pretty easy Thank God for the engineer that came up with Over Head Valves (OHV). Still had to remove the head to change the valve, but I didn't have to lose my engine timing.
Anyway, fired her back up and she purred like a kitten. Buuuuuuuuuuuuutttt....it's stuck in LIMP mode and I get the codes listed in the title. Funny thing is, when in limp mode, all the gear indicators have boxes around them. Mine does that, but if I turn off the van, remove the key and open the door (simulate getting out), close the door, then try to start, switch QUICKLY to R or D, it will work for just a short period and display the current gear I am in.
So, my thought are the 083B code could be the main culprit leading to the 0706 code. Has anyone else has anything like this happen? Ideas? I hate to take it to the VW place as it is 1 hour and 15 minutes away and I'd have to tow it. Plus, I had a not so pleasant experience with them. They diagnosed my broken spring as a bad catalytic converter.
And thanks in advance.
P083B-LC pressure switch rationality This is a pressure switch for the transmission, Which you have 3. If one of the pressure switch is open or closed at the wrong time when in park or neutral,The transmission goes into limp mode , this is where you have limited gear operation,This problem code is related to a fault in the Transmission solenoid or TRS assembly

P0706 code is a generic powertrain code related to the transmission. This code is non-emission related. The transmission range sensor circuit is not communicating correct data to the engine control module (ECM). This code only applies to vehicles with an automatic transmission.
