NEED HELP ON TRANS SOLENOIDS

WHAT WOULD MAKE THE SOLENOIDS IN THE 05 TORQSHIFT TRANS GO BAD? I REPLACED ALL 7 SOLENOIDS 6 MONTHS AGO, WITH A COMPLETE TRANS REBUILD. NEW CONVERTER, CLUTCHES EVERYTHING. HERE ARE THE SYMPTOMS WHICH STARTED 3 WEEKS AGO, 1 TO 2 SECOND DELAY WHEN SHIFTING INTO GEAR. DELAYED SHIFT FROM 3RD TO 4TH GEAR, RPMS RISE. ALL THESE SYMPTOMS WERE THE SAME THINGS THAT HAPPENED 8 MONTHS AGO BEFORE I HAD THE TRANNY REBUILT. I HAVE AN EDGE ATTITUDE TURNER, WHICH I SENT BACK TO EDGE FOR THEM TO CHECK IT OUT AND UPDATE SOFTWARE, PUT IT BACK ON 2 WEEKS AGO. THIS IS WHEN THINGS GOT REALLY NOTICEABLE. WHEN TUNER IS ON 1-5, SHIFTS ARE ALL OVER AND SOMETIMES VERY HARD. THE TRUCK HAS ALSO HAD OTHER ELECTRICAL ISSUES IN THE PAST YEAR. LOW VOLTAGE OUT OF FICM WHICH CAUSED INJECTORS TO GO. IF ANYONE HAS ANY INSIGHT THAT MIGHT HELP ME IT WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED.

MODS ARE EDGE ATTITUDE TUNER, D-TECH 70 OVER INJECTORS, STAGE 1 TURBO, 4'' DOWN BANKS EXHAUST, ARP STUDS, EGR DELETE, BANKS RAM AIR, AIR DOG 2 FUEL PUMP

Put down the diesel power mags, sell the edge tuner, get an sct with a custom tune, and get a quality rebuilt transmission.

EDGE TUNER KILLING TRANS

SO U R TELLING ME THE TUNER HAS A DIRECT LINK TO THE FAILURE OF THE SOLENOIDS. I KNOW THEY CHANGE THE SHIFT PATTERNS. BECAUSE EVEN AFTER I DISCONNECTED THE TUNER. THE SLIP OR HESITATION STILL CONTINUED.

the generic off the shelf tuners dont really change the patterns much if at all because they will work on any computer strategy. Custom tunes are for you computers strategy and adjust the shifting for the power level so it shifts when it should for that power.
