Rawkon I hope they get it, typically i find a P0700 means replace your TCM. its a generic but internal control failure like a solenoid or the TCM not working right

4point I hope they got it Brian, we missed you this last weekend. Larry took GPS coordinates of the trail. You really need them for this trail. Its confusing.

It was throwing a P0700, which is a generic "Transmission fault" code. The mechanic pulled up the real ones and after a bunch of work, he narrowed it down to a stuck solenoid. Had to replace the entire valve body and solenoid pack. Threw another P0700 after the work was done. Hooking it up to the scanner reveled about six other codes that the mechanic attributed to adjustment problems. Got it back on Monday and so far, no problems.

I have around 160 pics of the run. I need to upload them first.


Also this place is great. There are trails of all degrees of difficulty around the immediate area. Unlimited we can group camp at one of many sites within a couple minutes of the trails. There are no rest room (lots of hiding spots though) facility's in the possible camping areas, there is no water, power or satellite TV. The cell phones do work out there though.

stevens243 If I don't have to sleep within 35' of Rob's tent, no "wind" can scare me away!
05-01-2009 12:06 PM
4point Oh I'll be there, wind or not.

Its just that the jeep is a handful driving across the desert in the wind. On my last crossing the winds were 45mph gusting to 60mph. Thats a freaking white knuckle ride.

Are you sure you'renot looking up the forecast for cataline Island? I'm not finding any report of high winds. It is going to rain on Saturday, that means Bullfrog will be wet and slippery...just the way I like her!

Did that sound a little dirty or is it just me?
05-01-2009 11:39 AM
4point Also there is a group going out next week with BLM to mark the trail route which will make it easier for those who have never been find their way through.
05-01-2009 11:25 AM
4point Man, I hope they find the problem soon. We will miss seeing you out there Sunday.
I'm heading out Saturday and spending the night in Hesperia. We'll look for camp sites, from what I gather there is a place nearby.

Unlimited Got my Jeep back yesterday and was driving it to work this morning when the CEL came on and the transmission went into "Limp" mode again. I guess the fricken $900 valve body replacement wasn't the answer.... so it's going back to the shop this afternoon.

That puts me out of the run on Sunday! Damm.... I was really looking forward to it too. Take good notes Rob and Larry, so you can lead the group in November. Also, keep your eyes out for camping spots, etc...

Have fun, I wish I was going...

tiny terror Sorry guys, we really would love to be there. It's just a bad time with closing and the move. Plus, my front diff is black as night. I need to get it to the shop (still under warranty) but there's just so dang much with the house. Seems like everyday Ron emails that he needs something right NOW for closing.

We'll get Baby all fixed up as soon as we're in the house and Bob's your uncle.
04-30-2009 11:48 PM
MrBash I'm looking forward to this run. After Bullfrog.maybe we can run the hammerdown real quick.

Can't Wait!!
