I stuck a flat blade screw driver up in the little white switch above the brake pedal (you can see it if you look directly above the pedal through the steering rod. It is being pushed by a small piece of metal in the plastic casing) and then tried shifting out of park and it worked. It was a really cold night before and I guess the grease just froze up. It seems to be working fine now even without pushing it in with the screwdriver. Thanks so much deltamech!

Try checking the brake pedal switch which allows shifter movement with key on, brake pedal pressed.

I have a 2003 Chevrolet suburban when I start it up the transmission shifts smoothly but once I drive about 50 miles or more the tranny starts to slip please help


If the vehicle has more than 90,000 miles on it the transmission should be rebuilt. Chevy used the 4l60E transmission in Suburbans and it is not quite strong enough.A good rebuild will change all clutchs and plates along with the sun gear and cage.Also all electronic modules.I had mine rebuilt at 125,000 and afterwards pu an additional 200,000 on it without any slippage.

What causes 95 suburban to not go into gear. tranny fluid adequate and clean. simply wont engage.


First we need to figure out what transmission you have. Crawl under the vehicle on the drivers side (be sure to chock your tires) and see if there is a black box on that side of the transmission. If so, then it is the 4L60E and there are many electronic parts that could be the culprit. Also while you're under there check and see if your shift linkage is hooked up, that will be on that same(drivers) side of the transmission. While your under there getting dirty, you could park the vehicle on level ground, chock the front wheels, jack up the entire rear of the vehicle and place it on jackstands. With the rear of the vehicle up in the air you could un-bolt the shift linkage and try to manually shift the transmission. If that works, you could have a broken shift linkage, or if you do have the 4L60E out may be that little black box where the shift linkage attaches to the transmission. Good luck and be careful!

DISCONNECT BRAKE PEDAL 1991 SUBURBAN


98 Suburban 5.7L, automatic trans is stuck in park - no previous shifting problems, I know that the brake switch also operates the brake/transmission solenoid (BTS). Stepping on the brake pedal prior to starting the vehicle allows shifting from park to another gear. When I switch the key to the "on" position, I don't hear the BTS click. I can start the vehicle and the brake lights work fine. I just can't shift out of Park. I am unemployed and I am trying to troubleshoot this problem and fix it myself. Please help!

Put a 1996 4l60e into 97 truck.goes strait to 3rd gear unless man shift.no 4th


The transmission in this truck is electronically controlled through shift solenoids,it also has a number of sensors that the computer control module uses to determine proper times to shift and what is the appropriate gear, so you must have the computer scanned to see if any fault codes related to the transmission are in memory

Swapped tranny, just need help with matching up wiring


It won't work. The shifting of the 4L60E is done by the computer in the 93. You might check with Summit or Jegs, I think they make a system to make it work.

The gear shift is stuck in park. The wheel moves


Make sure you have brake lamps. The shift interlock solenoid is powered by the brake lamp switch.
