Question about Dodge Dakota
Trans light comes on and truck begins to shift hard. I pull over and turn the truck off and back on and it resets and its fine for the remainder of the drive or it will come back on. I scanned it and it gave me an obd2 code P0714.
You diagnosed it.
The sensor in the transmission is faulty, or you have a wiring problem between the trans and the computer.
The sensor is telling the computer the transmission fluid is below zero or over 300 degrees when the light comes on, not what it actually is.

The EMC detected and problem so it's in limp mode, As long as it's in limp mode the 4th and OD will not activate. Take care not to burn up the transmission by running it hard while your in the limp mode.
Your going to have to get the truck scanned to clear any codes and why there are DTC codes. Auto Zone scan for free and most auto shops charge $10.00 to $20.00 to scan sine they want the business.
If you want to clear the codes your self you can put the ignition to the run position and pull the ECM (Batt) fuse out for 20 sec and place it back in then start the truck. It may stall but let it, just start it again and this would have cleared all the DTC code history.
The transmission should be running fine unless there is a problem and the service engine light will be on again and you'll be in limp mode still with an updated DTC in the ECM.
Good luck and hope this helps.

your trans cooler is restricted. most likely it is part of your radiator and if it is restricted you will either need to replace the radiator or install an aftermarket cooler. have your trans cooler flow checked and go from there
