My service engine light is on and i plugged it in and it said my shift solenoid is bad

    I had the same problem with my BTSI (brake transmission shift interlock) whereas i couldnt shift out of park while applying the brake. My friend came over and took apart of shifter (located in the center console) and when I applied the brake, the BTSI solenoid didn't do anything. My friend just put a little piece of cardboard in to hold the solenoid open at all times (I don't have to press the brake to shift is all that it does) and I do not have the problem at all anymore. The check engine light never came on because of this (before or after his "fix") but it's worth a try for you.

    2-3 shift solenoid circuit


    P0758 Chevrolet P0758 Chevrolet - 2-3 Shift Solenoid Circuit Electrical
    Possible causes
    - Low transmission fluid level
    - Dirty transmission fluid
    - Faulty 2-3 Shift Solenoid Valve
    - 2-3 Shift Solenoid Valve harness or connectors
    - 2-3 Shift Solenoid Valve circuit is open or shorted
    What does this mean? When is the code detected?
    When the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) detects a continuous open, short to ground or short to power in the 2-3 Shift Solenoid (SS) valve circuit, then DTC P0758 sets.
    Possible symptoms
    - Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light)
    - Transmission will not shift gears
    P0758 Chevrolet Description
    The 2-3 Shift Solenoid (SS) valve controls the fluid flow acting on the 2-3 shift valves. The 2-3 SS valve is a normally-open exhaust valve that is used with the 1-2 SS valve in order to allow four different shifting combinations. The solenoid attaches to the control valve body within the transmission. The Powertrain Control Module (PCM) controls the solenoid by providing the ground path.

    CODE P0755 ON TOYOTA CAMRY DX


    DTC P0755 - Shift solenoid valve B
    This warning is turned ON or OFF by the Transmission Control Module (TCM) in response to signals sent from the park/neutral position (PNP) switch, vehicle speed and Engine Control Module (ECM) (throttle opening). Gears will then be shifted to the optimum position.

    The P0755 code is detected when TCM detects an improper voltage drop when it tries to operate the solenoid valve.

    Symptoms:
    - Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light)
    - Transmission will not shift gears.

    Possible causes:
    - Low transmission fluid level
    - Dirty transmission fluid
    - Faulty shift solenoid B valve
    - Shift solenoid B valve harness or connectors
    - Shift solenoid B valve circuit is open or shorted

    When the a transmission solenoid is malfunction, in most cases the problem is not the electrical part of the solenoid; the problem is foreign material obstructing the mechanical function of the solenoid or the flow of the fluid through the transmission valve body. If the transmission fluid is very dirty, it is recommend changing the transmission fluid and if possible removing the transmission pan for further diagnosis. Excessive debris or metal particles on the transmission pan could be an indication that there is a transmission mechanical failure and that the transmission will need to be rebuilt or replaced.

    Additional test details could find in this link about Repair/05/2011ne09/cip0755 (pdf)

    Hope this helps (remember to rate and comment this answer).

    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.

    Check engine light came on and now shifts hard from park to drive


    The engine light is telling you, you have a transmission problem which sound like a shift solenoid. If you take the care to a local garage or dealer you can have them scan the vehicle for the problem code, which will tell you which solenoid is bad.
