Problem with transmission. I am going to try to be VERY specific so you can help me with the best possible scenario. The truck has 232,000 miles. It has not been worked on very much. It has pulled a...

Cheapest scenario is to change the transmission filter. That is if it is an automatic. When you do this, most transmissions have a magnet in the transmission pan. If yours has one I would check it for excessive metal shavings or worse metal chunks.

According to the Hyundai service website, "If there is an open or short circuit in the vehicle speed sensor signal circuit, the engine may stall when the vehicle is decelerated to a stop." This sounds like what you're describing, so you should check out the detailed troubleshooting info for the VSS at, available free with registration.

The transmission does have a separate computer (TCM), it's a $700 plus item from the dealer, but if necessary you can get one for much less from a salvage yard. The same goes for the ECM.

Its the electronic shift control located just under the battery ontop the transmission replace or repair will solve the issue

it'll go into drive but once it reaches 1500 rpm it'll drop into neutral as a safety because at this rpm it is being told to shift gear and when it fails to do so it safely goes into neutral

it will go into reverse just fine and park and you can run all the low drive gears until you reach 1500 rpm then it'll cut it off

i pulled mine out re soldered bad components on the board to fix it but im an electronics engineer it may be easier for you to just replace it

Multiple electrical flukes, transmission goes into

It is the circuit board behind the gauges.
The solder cracks around the pin causing an inconsistent connection.
Cheapest fix is to go to salvage yard and get a complete new circuit board.
I found three soldered connections bad on mine and fixed it myself but for the average Joe it would be just as easy to get another circuit board.
