P1705 - FAULT CODE - OBD2
P1705 Code failures by brands
P1705 FORD, LINCOLN, MAZDA, MERCURY: TRANSMISSION RANGE SENSOR OUT OF SELF-TEST RANGE
Description of DTC code P1705
The Transmission Range Sensor (TR) is a Hall-effect sensor incorporated in the TCM (Transmission Control Module). It detects the automatic transmission range and reports it to the TCM, which in turn reads the voltage and adjusts the automatic transmission range accordingly.
The Transmission Control Module continuously monitors the Transmission Range Sensor to check for proper transmission range performance. If the transmission range circuit does not indicate Stop/Neutral during one of these self-tests, the P1705 OBD2 fault code will be set.
