My sister in-law has a 2008 caliber. took it to advance auto after her car went into limp mode. it has codes p0700, p0708, p0776, p0746, p0777.
Shift solenoids were stuck on. This could be caused by several issues. Speed sensor could be bad, throttle position sensor could be bad, etc. This is causing the car to go into "limp-in" mode. This causes the transmission to remain in 2nd gear to allow you to get to a repair shop. Have autozone clear the codes and see if it acts up again. Usually, limp-in mode can be stopped by stopping the car, turning it off, and re-starting it. Codes will remain stored in the computer until cleared by an automotive technician.

Hi I own a 2008 Dodge Caliber. It would not start . The lights were very strong and horn worked. The power locks would. My husband was told to take battery ground cable off and let it sit for 1 minute
That's baloney (?bologna?) with the negative cable re-setting.
First, let me ask by not start, do you mean it cranks and won't start, or it won't even crank the engine over?
If it cranks and won't start, suspect a gas or spark problem. Check the fuel pressure and the injector circuit for a fuel problem, then check the ignition circuit for a spark problem.
If it won't even crank the engine over, it could be a wiring problem going to the starter, or it could be a bad starter motor or starter solenoid (that is attached to the starter). After all, the starter that is in the car is now 9 years old (if never changed), and that could be the problem. Usually they give some hints when they begin to go bad, like slow acting, but not always.
