The shift solenoids are inside the tranny, just pull the pan and the filter and you will have a 20 lb piece of metal with a million slots cut in it called the valve body, in it contains, 2 shift solenoids and one lock up thing and one other electric thing, I would have to peek in the book for that one. But you can access this easy enough, your tranny will drip for days while you work on it, and the solenoid might not fix the problem. But a filter and partial oil change will help. Check it out, hope this helps.

Why won't my 1995 gmc jimmy go over 35 like it doesn't want to shift

Could be bad 3-4 shift solenoid. Drop trans pan to inspect. These solenoids often come apart and are easily seen to be bad.

I have a 2001 GMC Jimmy, reverse went out. I have some forward gears, but it is shifting very hard and the gears are winding out too far.

May be some shift solenoids issue. Do you have a service engine light on? If so that will tell what solenoids may be faulty. The shift solenoids are inside the transmission pan and bolted to the bottom of the valve body.

Where is shift actuator located on 1999 Jimmy 1999

I had the same problem with my 1999 Silverado which would blink several times on the mode I selected then go back to the 2 wheel High. I found the switch module to be defective, after replacing it I have never had the problem again.

If your truck has a dashboard push-button 4x4, then carefully disassemble and clean with Q-tips and alcohol. when 4x4 lights turn off, drive in reverse over 15 feet. Good luck.

1996 GMC Jimmy will not shift in to first unless it has sat for a cupple hours

You'll have to connect the vehicle to a scanner and read the pressures @ the pressure control solenoid and the 1-2 shift solenoid to narrow down the problem.
