My 1994 GMC Suburban wont shift out of first.....but will shift to second manually but wont go any higher........?


Sounds like a vehicle speed sensor, it governs shifting based on engine RPM vs Transmission RPM among other things. Located usually on the rear tailshaft or rear transfer case on the majority of 4L60E automatics.

Understand the grounding problem re; dash lights flickering, needles jumping wildly, but what is the b pillar???? Obviously not a mechanic


The "B" pillar is the term used by the manufacturer for the front pillar where the windshield is attached. Most of the dash's components ground at the "B" pillar,driver or passenger.

1996 camry lost speedometer and a/c while driving. Put in new battery and alternator, still no change and now car just lost all power while driving . What is wrong with car?


lost speedometer, what does that mean 0mph at 50? ??????
YES, CHECK all fuses first. all cars, for any electric issues.

A./c lost, (ok there are 6 things that cut A/c some are normal)
one is HVAC dash blower fan must blow or AC brain cuts A.C
this prevent ICE up. (normal)
please:
why guess? please stop guessing and throwing parts and cash.
what does lost all power, driving mean.???
lost engine power (cant drive)
or lost all electric power (a prime reason for EFI to die , for lack of 12vdc electric power)
does lights die on the car, at the moment of problems?
Dash cluster , head lights, any lights.
does engine STALL? (0 RPM is stall) 300 RPM is bad idle.
800 RPM is normal hot idle, never less.

if this is just and engine power issue, (cant drive at all ,or only slow or
slow up hills?)O
my car will not move fast,? in any gear? and transmission don't slip
and no DTC scan codes (checked and smart to do first)

I'd be all over fuel pressure. this is a $20 gauge , that must be connected to the fuel rail to read pressure.
28psi is minimum for all cars.
if i knew what engine was in your car, id look yours up
alldata.com has this info.

the ecu can not report wrong fuel pressure, it cant
so is always and issue, with total engine power loss.
so is skipping 60,000 mile FULL TUNEUP's

if you need those charts they are easy to get. for any car.

tell more get more.... regards

THE SPEEDOMETER STOPS WORKING WHEN IT GETS HOT ON MY 2004 TRAIL BLAZER THANKS.


If everything else works ok, the vehicle drives normally, and all the other gauges are working then you may have a bad speedometer servo motor. This servo is what actually moves the speedometer needle to match the speed you are driving at. The cluster would need to come out and be repaired to fix this problem if this is the case.

1994 suburban will not keep charge from battery,


Sounds like a bad altnator. if the alt. is working propperly it will run the burb. with out the battery installed. With that though, it possiably could of damaged the batt. enough to the point of replacement as well.
