What would you recommend?
Change it...

powerhoghp You should never replace just one batt.... Also, low voltage/amps can cause bad shifting among many other things. If you are doing a full flush with filter change, then yes, go ahead.

The 5R110 is a adaptive learning transmission and it is sometimes recommended to disconnecting the batteries to reset and do a re-learn, which you may have jsut done, that alone may solve the issue... when going through re-learn drive it normally for a few hundred miles, not too aggressive or not to light either but consistent. For what its worth I recommend servicing the transmission and inspecting the fluid and pan.

keep me posted.

I was receiving less than 30 volts out of the 110 I should get. So now $330 later I have brand new alternator and new batteries running this sucker. Hopefully that's all that caused the trans to mess up.. but for now she starts good again.. Getting ready to embark on a journey back home (2 hrs) for the weekend so hoping for the best on this one!

Thanks.. I'm going to go pick up the batteries in a little bit and have them tested. I just replaced one not too long ago...

or more likely the EGR is acting up (very common) even with the mildest tune the EGR can act up more often with the added soot than it already does with out it. Could have been the EGR hanging up, then letting go... gut that baby out!

Hope its a start keep me posted and I will run this thread past my head tech, he is a 6.0 genius!

I've had the passenger battery replaced just a couple months ago.. I didn't replace both though so I'm going to have them both stuck on Auto Zone's charge tester and see what they're reading. I would love to delete the EGR but I'm broke right now living pay check to pay check so thats not an option lol.. maybe just have to put it back to stock tune for now.. Hopefully I can get this resolved with getting new batteries, that'll be enough money for me for right now.. Thanks though and let me know what your tech says please..
