So I had my starter break off the trans the other night while I was trying to leave work and ended up having to put a new one on in the parking lot. When I did it I didn’t disconnect the batteries because I’m a big dummy and shorted the starter on the frame. When I tried to start the truck I hit the key and just heard clicking. I looked up and found out I could touch the wire to the battery and jump it off like that and that’s how I got it started. I replaced the relay for the starter and now it does a half crank then stops and clicks under the dash. After I got everything done I put it in reverse and it had full power going back but when I put it in drive it had barely any power at all. So I figured out that it’s stuck in probably 4th gear and even if I try to drop it in manual 1-2-3 it won’t affect it at all. So there’s 2 problems maybe separate or maybe 1 thing messing them both up. What could it be? I was thinking maybe 1 of the computers but I’m garbage at electrical work. Thanks for your time

In my signature block if you look at the Block Diagram on page 96, it could give you something. If you can't see it, do a google search for "6.0 Bible pdf," and that is the book.

From what I see, the only thing extra you can do is disconnect the batteries and trace the thick 12 V wires from the starter to look for any burns or chips.
