You don't say what kind of transmission you installed in place of whatever transmission you took out. 4L60E, 700R4, etc.

You probably have a mess on your hands. If your replacement is pcm controlled, there is no practical way to override the pcm for transmission control. It does all the work that shift valves did in older transmissions. You NEED the pcm involved. I guess you COULD bypass it with a set of switches, but then you'd need a co-pilot to work the solenoid switches while you drive the vehicle.

There are add-ons available that will adapt transmissions for racing, show car building, etc but they are a bit of work, a bit of money, and require some understanding of electromechanical systems on transmissions. Might start at tciauto.com or google trans adapter harness.

Will a 4L60E out of a 93 chevy silverado heavy half 4x4 work in a 96 chevy 1500 suburban 4x4?


there are a few differences in 96 there is a range indicator switch which also works as a neutral safety switch mounted on the selector shaft. if the 93 tranny is original it wont have the bosses to mount that switch.

93 Chevy, gear shift **** between 2nd and 3rd


Remove the fluid - get a good flash light - get a very long screw driver - put the screw driver into the drain hole and force the transmission out of gear. Then remove the Transmission and replace or repair. Cheaper to replace. You bent the forks on the shift mechanism.

I have a 93 Chevy Suburban 1500 and the Transmission won't shift into any gear. I have an 1983 Chevy Suburban Transmission that is still good. Can I use the 83 Transmission in my 93 Suburban?


Not without a little adapting. The 1993 has a 4l60e which is electronically controlled and has shift solenoids. If the 83 is an overdrive it is a 700r4 which is the same trans but not electronic. If you put it in the speedo wont work and you will need to install a T.V. cable so the transmission will shift. The 93 won't go forward or backwards?

I just put a transmission from a 1994 chevy 1500 onto my 1993 chevy 1500. it fit perfectly but the wiring harness is different. is there an adapter for this application? if so, and i install it will i need...


what color is the inside of the trans connector on the trans itself? I believe the 93/94s were a tan yellowish color. 1995 and up are different and won't work - electronics are different

If they have exactly the same amount of solenoids, you could switch the harnesses.... but it sounds like you have a 95 or newer trans which would have one more solenoid

Will transmission from blazer 93 fit to blazer 95


Yes it will run, if it is identical as you told us, and you will have no problem with the safety switch, your only concern now should be the gear ratio of the 93 chevy Blazer.
