New transmission installed and have a problem
Just installed my 4T65E in my n/a 2000 bonneville se. Got it all installed, on the transmission side cover it says rebuilt, the coolant lines had flared fittings and the quick release ones on my old ones with the check valve was a totally different size, so found a adapter and drilled it out to match line size. Solved that.
However, my car wont start. I noticed the orange light on the dash thats behind my p, r, n, d, 3, 2, 1 isn't lit. So I'm guessing its saying its in gear. The orange on the shifter by the shift boot is right on the money in every gear. So I went back with a buddy and triple checked everything and we really didn't unhook anything except the main wiring plug. I called the builder back and he said the neutral safety unit is bad. I said it was fine before and i said I think its inside the trans and he said no its bolted to the outside of the tranny. I know on the 4t60e'* its right on the shifting linkage, but i have a cable on top of mine thats it, so I'm not sure what to do, I have no power going to the purple starter trigger wire.
I for now, ran a jumper from the purple trigger into the car that i can just stick in the cigerette lighter to trigger the starter, yea kinda ghetto but u gotta get home 80 miles from the shop its the only way. My reverse lights work and tranny seems to shift just fine.
I was thinking it needs maybe a security reset, but when i turn the key forward and roll it into start and back to acc the security light stays off... So any ideas? Will a 1997 4t65e work in my car?
