V6 auto gearbox in 98 Trooper

Hi guys I have a 98 Trooper V6 auto, the fault started with the gearbox making a clunk only between second and third gear, also found that the selector lights on the dash were jumping all over the place. When held in first gear manually the car still shifted to second. All these faults werent always there, if it was doing it and I turned off the ignition and restarted the car car it would most of the time go away. I changed the gearbox oil and filter and it was fine until about 60 miles later it all returned, same thing on and off, some forums may indicate a faulty mode sensor, whatever that is. Any advice would be greatly appreciated as I love my zoo, I have also pulled some connections off the gearbox and cleaned them with contact cleaner but that didnt help.

I just kept finding out information and have just about confirmed it would have to be a faulty inhibitor switch, but finding a cheap one is another matter

I have a 2001 Holden rodeo 3.2L V6 auto have a problem between 40-60k's an hr it goes to change from 2nd to 3rd and seems to completely forget to go into 3rd and revs out and will not Go into gear unless I...


I can explain the sluggishness you get after the fault occurs and the light appears. The rodeo will go into what's called 'limp home mode' when it detects a fault. It is a safety feature that locks the car in second (or third) gear so u can get home or to the mechanic...slowly. If you turn the car off and re-start it will re-set. I recently was having transmission problems with my 2002 v6. It would occasionally clunk badly when pulling up to a slow stop. Intermittent problem that I couldn't reproduce with the mechanic (of course). They changed the transmission oil which was low and old, not a cheap job but probably a good idea. Unfortunately problem was still there. Plug in diagnostic module at transmission specialist showed no current faults when they first checked it, but a look through the fault history when I took it back and told them problem was still there showed a fault with the TPS or Throttle Position Sensor. Replaced that (not very expensive) and its been perfect ever since. May not be your problem, but get the transmission guy to check fault history, not just current faults. Don't know why my guy didn't do it the first time. Best of luck

2002 trooper A/T 4WD will not move from start or stop.


One of two things has happened. Either you have lost first and second gear in your tranny (Winter drive starts you out in third gear) or your TCM (Transmission control module) is shot.

Check the TCM first, it's the lesser (cheaper) of the two evils.

I may have a similar issue, it's hard to tell from your description. My transmission is in 'limp' mode with a fault light on the dashboard. It basically causes the transmission to lock into third gear. Acceleration is poor because you are starting out in third gear. I'll let you know if I sort it out. It could be the switch on the brake pedal. Others have had luck switching that out

After a jump start because of no electrical power, the car will run rough for several days (expected) while it adjusts to your driving habits. I'm not sure about the gears, but I'd try to drive with it like that for a few days and see if it returns to normal.
