Question about 2007 Cadillac DTS Sedan
Transmission does not shift into high gear
Check fluid. If that's good, you have a bigger problem. Try scanning for codes first.

First off, I'd try changing the fluid and filter in the transmission. I know a lot of cars claim "lifetime fluid" - it's BS. Believe me, even the lifetime fluids get very dirty. Change out the fluid and filter, and you could even add some Lucas stabilizer to it - that may well help cure the problems.
When the transmission goes completely, it may lock up the drive wheels, sending you into a careening slide, or it may kick out to neutral and coast to a stop. It's also possible that if it flat-out blows, it could fragment inside and you'd hear what sounds like bolts in a blender as you coast to a standstill.
Discounting the transmission blowing up, and just looking at driving in a drive gear other than overdrive, you're looking at more heat in the transmission due to the higher gear RPM, shorter fluid life, possible slippage of the bands down the road due to heat, and of course decreased gas mileage due to the engine running at higher RPM.

if AAMCO charged you for this faulty diagnosis (sounds like they guessed), because the PCM rarely is the problem on any GM product, less than 3% is the factory stat, and yes they track these things, anyway if they charged u make them refund the money because they screwed up, u say a pin is an open circuit? that is where to concentrate your focus.i

ok, its the shift solenoid that is malfunctioning here. replacing it will fix this issue.also, check the transmission fluid to see if its low.

You need to have it checked out by a mechanic as soon as possible, I drive a 2000 cadillac catera and it began to have the same problems about 4 months ago but last month my sport mode button began to blink which means a transmission problem. So when i had it looked at they said my 3rd gear was almost completely burnt out and it cost $2,000 to fix. The cause was a broken piece of the transmission was failing and it had to be completely rebuilt. Good luck!!
