Sounds like a speedo gear in the transmission ... I think the tahoe one had a speedo cable the speed sensor is located in the speedo ... will cause all those to fail if speedo is not working as did in my Astrovan

How to fix a 4l60e trans that doesnt shift into all gears 2001 tahoe


Block all wheels front and back so you don't get squished.
Have a close look at the shift linkage with the key on but the engine off with an assistant slowly shifting through all gears.
If you can see the shift arm on the side of the transmission going through all positions and can hear it clack into each gear, then the issue may quickly become a need for transmission rebuild.

Why doesn the digital speedometer work on my 2011 equinow


Does the transmission shift OK?.....Is the check engine lamp on???
The speedometer gets its signal from the ABS or transmission ECU..If either one of those components is not sending the signal...the check engine lamp and/or ABS lamp should be illuminated...if not...the cluster may be at fault...check your fuse assignment to ensure the speedometer does not have a fuse of its own.....A scan with a good scanner will inform you of why it is not receiving the signal....The transmission and ABS ECU's will have an output for vehicle speed.....but, as before, a GOOD scanner is required.

I have a 1995 chev. tahoe, transmission won't shift into 3 and od, motor just revs


Ok if you have 1st and second gear and it shifts to neutral instaed of 3rd , that means the 3-4 clutches are burned up.This is common problem with the 4L60E transmission and the transmissionwill need to be removed and rebuilt ot repaired.The 3-4 clutches are the weak point in the trans and i usually use a z-pack when rebuilding them.It increases hold capacity and durability.

1996 Chevy K1500 4L60 Transmission having problems shifting speedometer is at Zero no movement and ABS light comes on.


The vehicle speed sensor is not working, it is located in the transmission tailshaft. The computer uses this speed info to shift the transmission, and tell when the rear wheels are locked up so the ABS will function.

1996 Tahoe error code P0700 detected at PepBoys


P0140 Oxygen Sensor Circuit No Activity Detected (Bank 1 Sensor 2) P1192 Post-catalyst Fuel Trim System Bank 1

Replace the O2 sensor after the catalytic Converter and check to make sure the wire harness and clips are not damaged. Also check the O2 sensor fuse in the fuse panel to make sure there not blown. 
As for the p0700 code is a generic code and the ECM needs to re-calibrated for the performance upgrade in your transmission. It's common to happen when there are changes like the transmission fluid pressure has been altered which would give it a better and firmer shift, but the transmission reads the higher line pressure as a problem. If you take it to a good transmission shop with a tech2 scanner, the tech2 can change the transmission ECM parameters and that way it will recognize the higher transmission line as a norm. 
Have done a few upgrades on the 4L60E with a common swap of the servo's with a corvette servo's ($45.00) to firm up the shift and raise the transmission line pressure to keep the slipping to a minimal and also bring down the shift points at WOT on the 1st-2nd shift to get going a bit faster (used Tech2 scanner). 
Good luck and keep me posted, be glad to help.

Trans


Check the speed sensor on the tranny cause if the speedometer is not working the tranny will not shift.The computer will not recognize that the transmission is in motion so will not shift.

Speedo stopped working and tranny wont shift out of first!


I will try and clear up any confusion about the different model designations.The trans was first introduced as the Turbo Hydramatic 700 r 4.Later in the evolution of that family,it had improvements made on it by the factory engineers,and they redesignated it the 4L60 model.The 700/4L60 uses a throttle valve cable as a mechanical indication of the throttle position....to the trans.The TV cable regulates mainline hydraulic pressure inside the transmission.This model also uses a governor as a road speed mechanism.It is responsible for the TIMING of the upshifts,and is responsible for the trans being in first (low) gear from a standing start.In 1993,the 4L60E was introduced to the lineup.Same trans as the 700/4L60,but now it is totally electronic,and totally controlled by the PCM (Powertrain Control Module) based on electrical inputs/outputs from the trans,throttle position sensor,road speed,etc.The engineers took the 700/4L60 and did away with the governor and TV cable,made it totally electronic.Early 700's had a mechanically driven speedometer,while the later 4L60's and E's had an electronic speedometer.1993 was a transition year.I have seen both,the 4L60 and the 4L60E in 1993 model trucks,it depends on the month of the manufacture of the vehicle.Your truck could have either,or.The way to visually identify the difference is........on the driver side,the 700/4L60 trans case will have a round,black,governor cover,about 3 or 4 inches in diameter.The 4L60E case does not.The 700/4L60 also has the TV cable mounted on the passenger side of the trans case,and it routes up to the throttle body/gas pedal/accelerator linkage.The 4L60E does not.Recently,the 4L65E and 4L70E versions have been put into production.Based on your description of the malfunction symptoms,i would be inclined to say yours is probably the 4L60E version,because the speedometer malfunction occuring at exactly the same time as the shift malfunction.On a 700/4L60,the speedo malfunction would have no affect on the upshifts,the trans would operate normally.On the 4L60E,a speedo malfunction would likely cause no upshifts.You should still visually verify by the governor cover,or lack thereof,on the side of the trans case.It could just be a speed sensor malfunction if it has the "E" model.If so,it would have set a trouble code which can be accessed with a scan tool or a code reader.Hope this eliminates any confusion.Good luck!!
