Question about 1995 GMC Yukon

1 Answer

I lost 1 and 4 gears on my tranny. At the same time my gauge cluster and headlights went out. Can you help assist me on where to start troubleshooting? Are these separate issues or could they all be linked?

Why wont my samurai transmission input shaft turn.

5 speed

is it still on the bench>????????
i rebuild many

1: the bearing in the front is bad.
2: the tranny is locked, bad shifter rail, detents
3: 4th gear is not a gear, it just locks themain shaft.
so if in 4th gear and input is jammed, that means
the cluster is jammed. if the cluster jams for any reason
it will be jammed in neutral. too, because the cluster always spins.
bottom counter shaft is called cluster. to old folks.

tell me , with the lid off tranny box.
did you test all gears, by moving the collars 1 by one.?????
each gear,? if not why not.????? never skip this step or fail big time.

then test all rail detents to make sure they all work(lid off)
and never allowing 2 gears selected at once (job1)????

then put in a new shifter sheet and try all gears on the garage floor,
all assembled!
then turn input by and and shift all gears on garage floor
i even use a huge drill motor to test tranny on floor, with tape on tip
of pilot shaft. and shift all gears,

this is all basics, , never just throw it together, do the tests.
as you go.

this one is close,

Changed a coolant hose no problem. Went to drive the van, and the gear shifter wouldnt engage, then put it in neutral then started it, then to find out that the gas gauge, mileage gauge, blinkers, and...

The problem indicates towards tranny gear box and instrument cluster board.--------- Get the transmission fluid level checked, if its low it has to be refilled.---------- Many a times the vehicles computer system gets disturbed and and its start behaving like this.--------- Disconnect the negative battery terminal of your cars battery and wait for 30 minutes then reconnect the terminal properly.Then start and see, if same problem is noticed.--------- But if that is not helping then gear box needs to be taken apart and inspected for tranny not shifting problem.And instrument cluster board has to be taken apart from dash to check the board.--------- Also as you mentioned that ABS light is on, this indicates there is any code stored in the engine computer.-------- If you can get the car scanned , then it will be much better for you to resolve the problem.Because in scanning, it will point you towards the exact error code, and due to which part this problem is occurred.At autozone service center is absolutely free to get vehicle scanned.They do it free of charge.------------- --------------- ]For car after 1995 it requires OBD2 tool that autozone has and for car before 1995 it requires OBD1 tool.And autozone don't scan car before 1995.Because they don't have OBD1 tool.------- --------- There are very few auto parts store and repair centers who have OBD1 tool.In your car is before 1995 model then you require OBD1 tool.------ You can just contact local auto-parts store and they will guide you to the nearest store who has OBD1 tool.There you can get your car scanned.If there is error set in your cars computer, then you will receive the error code.As per error code it will point towards the faulty part causing this problem in your car.------ This will help.

3 things happened today. Have approx. 180,000 miles. Tranny started slipping, headlight went out, windows would not roll up. Crazy! Also ABS light came on as I pulled in to the driveway. HELP!!!!

Power ground not the 18 gauge wire the thick 12 gauge wire.For a 180,000 has it ever been rebuilt? Its time is giving out. On some model and years before VSS the ABS acted as a speed indicator to shift the gear but in you case ABS is seperate, you have a 2001 on down. the parts you buy will eventually be a whole car.

1999 Oldsmobile Alero Gauge problem

Could be lose connection on the back of the instrument cluster ,which means you would need to pull it out of the vehicle . Check pin fit to instrument cluster . for the B+ voltage suppy an ground connection's .
You said autozone - Tried to have auto zone diagnose from inside the car, came up with no codes. That's in the PCM - engine computer . There scan tool will not communicate with the instrument cluster ,which is also a computer in it's self. Need a factory scan tool to check instrument cluster.
Speedometer and/or Odometer Inaccurate
Important: A short to ground will cause an open fuse(s). Before performing this diagnostic procedure, inspect the fuse(s) for an open.
Did you perform the Instrument Cluster System Check?
Go to Step 2
Go to Instrument Cluster System Check
Turn the ignition switch to the ON position.
With the scan tool select Instrument Panel Cluster, Special Functions, Instrument Panel Cluster (IPC) gauges.
Perform the Speed Gauge Sweep Test.
Does the speedometer complete a full sweep when commanded?
Go to Powertrain On Board Diagnostic (OBD) System Check in Engine Controls
Go to Step 3
Replace the instrument cluster. Refer to Instrument Cluster Replacement .
Did you complete the repair?
Go to Instrument Cluster System Check
With a scan tool select the instrument panel cluster, data display, gear status.
Monitor the gear range status.
Move the gear lever through each gear.
Does the scan tool display the correct gear selected?
Your best bet , take it to a qualified repair shop .
