Need Help...weird transmission problem
So my OD was stuck in the 'off' position (button lit up). Some guys here helped me narrow my problem down to the OD solenoid. Today, I changed out the solenoid pack in the transmission. I also recently changed the speed sensor on the top of the rear pumpkin. I checked the OD button on the shifter with my meter and it works. After all was said and done, the OD was still stuck in the 'off' position....no 4th gear still. The guy in the shop next to me plugged the Snap-On scanner in to check for codes and got nothing.
This is the part I cannot figure out:
I learned that if I take out fuse #17 while the truck is running, then hold the OD button and put the fuse back in, the OD light goes out on the shifter lever, but the ABS light comes on the dashboard. On the way home I pulled over and did this and realized the truck shifted into OD. I drove on the highway with no problems.
The transmission feels like it shifts fine, it shifted into OD a little earlier than I was used to, but i figured with the new fluid and solenoid pack, that might be the normal way it shifts. It shifted smooth and nice.
Obviously I don't want to do this every time I have to drive on the highway and don't want the ABS light to stay on.
Is it wiring or something else?
Can anyone help me out? Maybe it's simple and I'm just having a brain fart. I was a diesel mechanic in the Military and realized it's the simple, but hidden stuff that is always the problem.
fuse #17 (warning buzzer, chime module, warning indicators, gauges, tachometer, electronic transmission)
