Wont shift to 3rd

I drove only like 4 miles in the sand in 4x4 and when I got off the beach, I noticed my truck would not shift into third. I assumed it was the 4x4 still on, but hubs are not locked and the light is off.

I tried going manually from 1st to second then to drive with the OD on and also in the off position.

My fluid showed a little high (but it was hot) but smelled like what can only be described as a burnt clutch smell.

The fluid felt a little thin to me but the color and clarity seemed perfect. At first I was thinking I needed a new shift kit, but now I am kinda getting worried.

The OD light was flashing until I shut the truck off and I am kina at a loss since everyone is closed up for the weekend. Any and all help, bumps and advice greatly appreciated.

the od light flashing is showing you that you have a code in the tranny. if you go to an auto parts store they may be able to pull the code for you. but to me sounds like you may need a tranny but good luck man. i had one like this but the truck lost revers shortly after this problem. good luck man.

if they read codes for free then they should be able to pull the codes cuz on the 4r100 it uses the pcm to control it.

Just for future reference, the guys at autozone and advance both said they could only read the codes if it triggered a "check engine light" not if it were a "OD" code. Yer mileage may vary.

P0782 2-3 shift error. Cleared the code and the thing runs like it was just rebuilt. Fluid doesn't smell anymore and the color and level are perfect. Weird. Guess it was in limp mode or something.

nevermind... she's hosed. Is $1700 a fair deal for a rebuild? Gotta quote from a pretty reliable mechanic in the area.

I paid $3000 for my rebuild but I got a lot of heavy duty parts. They wanted $2200 for a basic rebuild but I sprung for the better stuff
