it's a long story... about a month ago today I had my 2006 Jeep Commander, flatbed trailer, 2019 BMW R 90 scrambler, my 10 month old great Dane puppy and almost all of my personal belongings, files, computers etc...stolen while I was inside a storage facility on my last stop as I was leaving Chattanooga. Insurance lapsed.
A little over a week ago I received a phone call From the police Department informing me they had found my 2006 Jeep Commander .., I immediately returned to Chattanooga picked up my jeep, Which has now become decorated with a check engine light and driving in limp mode. I'm trying to use the jeep as a trade-in for a larger vehicle-
it has not been registered In my name and we are now back in emissions testing territory. I've been here for a week trying to climb through mountainous piles out red tape. and the submissions testing was the latest surprise. I need help. . if anyone can talk me through how to fix this or if anyone has space or tools or a lift or.....i would greatly appreciate the help. I have found a dealer with a truck he's willing to take in the jeep and trade it must be in my name. like I said I'm near ChattanoogaI have found a dealer with a truck he's willing to take in the jeep and trade the jeep is drivable this is an S9S.

Get the code scanned at any auto parts store and you need to tell us what the code(s) are.

What engine is in the vehicle? Is it 4x4?

P0846 - Transmission Fluid Pressure Sensor "B" Circuit
P0871 - Transmission Fluid Pressure Sensor "C" Circuit
P0988 - Transmission Fluid Pressure Sensor "E" Circuit
P0876 - Transmission Fluid Pressure Sensor "D" Circuit
P0882 - Transmission Control Module Power Input Signal Low
P0700 - Transmission Control System Malfunction

So, what does this really tell us. First, you are in limp mode because of your transmission. I know this is obvious, but it is good that all your codes are focused on one system.

First, check your fluid level. there will be a hot level and a cold level. Make sure you are within the window for either hot or cold. If not, you need to start looking for the source of leaks. I would look at the hoses and lines running up to the AC/condenser / transmission cooler combination unit first, and the unit itself.

If your fluid level is good, then you will need to get under the vehicle and look for any obvious signs of damage to the wiring that goes to the transmission, or any disconnected wires. Apart from that you probably need to take it to a transmission shop and have them check it out. I know a lot about a lot of things, but transmission diagnostics is not one of them. Unless someone else on here can help you.

Also pop the hood and look at the passenger side of the engine bay toward the back left, as you are facing it from the front of the vehicle. Make sure all the plugs that go into the rectangular box are well connected. There are three or four big plugs, depending on your engine size.
