2003 s-10 solenoid b problem

I have an 03 s-10 with the v6 and i had the service engine light checked out and i was told it was the shift solenoid b that was bad. Just recently i have changed the transmission solenoid and both the a and b solenoid. When i started the truck i now have no dash, my rpm, mph, fuel, and temp gauge all do not work now, also the indicator that shows when you are in drive and in park all does not work either. but my alt gauge still works. is there something I missed when changing all three solenoids? i have checked the fuses and they are all good. i made sure everything was clipped in that i unhooked. do i need to reset my computer? also when it is put in gear it shifts harder now? please help, any ideas? thanks

SOURCE: Hello, I own a 93

The transmission is controlled by the Transmission Control Unit (TCU).

Throttle position, rpm, and speed are input parameters to the TCU. The TCU has a default set of shift patterns. These shift patterns change over time based on your specific vehicle setup and driving habbits.

The shift patterns are only slightly affected by driving habbits over many driving cycles. But, changing the relationship between the throttle position and the actual speed being reported by the speed sensor can have an immediate effect on shift patterns.

While your speedo may now be correct, the realtionship between rpm and thottle position has not been corrected. That would take a gear change in the differentials.

The TCU can be reset to an inital learn base line. When this is done, the TCU will instantly learn the dynamics of your setup.

Any shop with an advanced ODB scan tool can reset the the TCU. The dealer or a transmission shop would be preferable.

You really should change your differential gears as opposed to resetting the TCU

''04 Buick LaSabre, Transmission rough shifting. Are pressure control solenoid and shift solenoids internal to transmission?


The solenoids are internal ! But if it were a solenoid problem the check engine light would come on . There are a lot of variables involved in the shifting of electroniclly controlled transmissions , it's all part of the engine management strategy programmed into the PCM - engine computer . I would take and have it checked before guessing about parts problems . A good qualified repair shop would hook up a professional grade diagnostic tool and road test the vehicle . With-in a few miles they would know for certain .

03 Toyota 4runner 4wd 4.7l had codes p0771 , p0986, and p2716 with vsc light on. Told to replace trans. Replaced with used and now has p0778 and p2716 now with vsc light on and still harsh shifts


Who told u to replace trans?..first thing should have been done was check wiring and connections at transmission and ECM and between the 2...also need to check the pressure control solenoids B and D...its possible the ECM is acting up especially since P2716 came back twice.

97 caravan check engine light, transmission will not up shift from 1st.


The only reasonable part is the labor charge. I couldn't second-guess the shop's recommendation, maybe both parts are needed, but you could have them replace the shift solenoid, and try driving it for awhile, see what happens. Then if you need the TCM, try a used one from a salvager for less than half the cost of new. That is something you could install yourself.
Whatever you decide, good luck.

2000 blazer shifts fine 1-3 gears , wont go into overdrive, shows check engine light trouble code po0753 shift solenoid a , any help


OK, let me remember..........the code 753 means the solenoid INSIDE the tranny pan is bad. You don't have 1st or 4th gear, is what I was told, however, you probably WON'T even notice. I didn't. If you are at a stop, and get on it hard, you should be able to tell. If you drive normal, like me, and just accelerate gradually, you would not be able to tell that the truck is not hitting the 1st and 4th gear. You may not recognize a problem, just the check engine light. Your going to have to drop the tranny pan, replace the solenoid, and reinstall the fluid and the pan. The hardest part is, upon dropping the pan, if you don't know what you are doing, you can damage the other solenoids, and if you don't damage any, you may still have a hard time realizing which solenoid is the right one. It would take 1hour at, plus tranny pan gasket and fluid, etc., etc., for a total of about $120. Most transmission shop charge $100 for a transmission oil and filter service. The solenoid was about $20. It is not hard to replace, just unclip the wire harness and solenoid which will be an extra 5 min to the service time.

Have 03 silverado V6 1500 50k miles no shift 2-3


Unless there's other circumstances the shop should have checked the codes first. From there they should have followed a basic diagnostic route such as making sure it has fluid pressure in all valve shift circuits and the correct pressure. But, it's most likely that you need a trans and a long test drive after doing the valves would have gave them a clear direction to go in if the problem is not interrmitant,
