I also had a few other minor things to do, splash guards, hook up the PCM, plug things back in, and hook up the battery. Car started right up. Backed up, no problems. Put it in drive. Same as before. Dang. Guess I'm pulling it again. All new solenoids are going in this time.

ARRRRrrrrrg!!!!!. Well. You're taking it better than I would. Dam!, Dan. Sorry to hear Bud. Do you think the solenoids are what failed in the first place?

bummer.. I've been rooting for you. It will get their eventually, and it looks like you have learned quite a bit during the process. So when do I get my hands on demonstration for rebuilding my trans?

All the codes I have now are electrical codes. They cover every solenoid, dang, I think I just figured it out. Every solenoid has one thing in common. They all get their +12v from the same pin E, except the pressure control solenoid. I remember SGP385 saying a bad ignition switch could cause this. I'll have to check voltage on that pin.

AHHHHHHHH, OK, now I'm not happy. Looks like I have no voltage on pin E, the problem is not in the transmission. I need to test that wire and the ignition switch. But I need to talk to sgp358 first.

Could be. But, in the end this is all stuff I planned to do, just a little early. Now it'* done. Next week I'll have to track down this problem.

For the record, I'm not upset. I learned so much in the past week. And I upgraded the transmission a lot. All things I planned to do. And, most importantly, the transmission went back together and back in and works.

Looks like all I need to do is make up a jumper cable and jump 12v to pinE. If it works fine, that'* the problem.
