The transmission shop took a reading and got code P1739- Power up at speed. The transmission was just replaced last year (2012) is it the transmission or something else?

---------- FOLLOW-UP ----------

QUESTION: I took my van to a Chrysler Dealer who checked for the 12-possible causes for the stored code P1739, Power & Grounds to TCM Connector,Switch Relays in PDC, Engine & Transmission Harness. All checked out OK. They could not duplicate the condition causing the code. Now my ABS light is standing on (two-weeks now). Could all this be related electrically?

Answer
no one can fix or diog an issue that is not currently happening cars are like humans  u can only test so much   if your not sick at the currant time will a DR be able to tell u whats wrong?  not really. Take it back to them when it does happen or leave it with them until it does happen
