Recheck all the electric connections under the hood. Something may have gotten knocked off/unplugged/broken that you did not notice upon reassembly. Also check ALL the fuses just in case there was a short . You may have blown one of the bigger block fuses that are there but tend to go unnoticed. For a blown fuse most people only check the flat fuses. The block fuses carry the heavier loads.

I just put a new transmission in my 97 chevy it wont even attempt to start.all ground wires are connected,all wires are hooked at a loss as to where to look.i need help or some...

Start by checking the battery. Is it installed correctly? Negative terminal to ground?
Is there any electrical activity? Lights? Radio? Does anything electrical work?
If it's an automatic, the transmission has to be in neutral or park for the engine to be started. Check the wiring for this. There should be a connection for a switch on the transmission.
Hope this gets you started towards a solution.

New battery In mercedes no power

I'm not a car mechanic, but, it sounds like you might want to check the fuse to the ignition switch, and, if that fails, it might be a problem with the Start Safety Switch on the transmission. Good luck.

Sounds like a pump problem.Did you install the new torque converter after you started having problems or before?Did you bolt the converter to the engine and then install transmission or did you install transmission with converter in it?

Sometimes when I go to start my 99 dodge durango it would start, and I move the gear shift a little and it turns right on, over times when it wont start I have to sit there for ten minutes, try it again...

If it seemed to start doing this about the same time transmission was replaced, then I'd have installer adjust/test neutral safety switch at transmission for either being defective or just out of adjustment. If your going to try adjusting it yourself, get back to me for proper procedure. Not knowing how long since transmission was changed, I'm guessing the installer would adjust free of charge, at least they should .
Please include engine size and transmission ( 2 wheel drive or 4x4) info when replying.

There are 3 7/16 or 11mm bolt heads and 2 25mm torque bolts, then remove the bracket holding the sensors up to the valve body. also ajust the bands if needed at that time. __________________

I put in a new starter and my car wont start what can i do

If it has a manual transmission, check the clutch pedal safety switch. If automatic it might be the park/neutral safety switch. Possible anti theft system issues. Good luck
