Question about 1997 GMC Jimmy
The transmission will not shift automaticly in to high gear (5th) and the RPM run around 2000 at 80 km , is there a quick fix , lose wire ? 175000 km on it....
My 97 Jimmy was doing the same thing, codes P0740 & P0753 witch are torqe converter lock up & shift solinoid. I unhooked the wires in the drivers side of the trany and cleaned them with contact cleaner bought at the parts store. I reconected the harness and disconected the baterie for a couple of houres and no trouble since.... 4 days so far Knock on wood........ Hope it helps

1097 GMC Jimmy , transmisson try to start off in high gear when you put it in D or overdrive. the code from the check Eng-Light say Tork-converter Senol voltage is low or missing. sometime the gas gague just jump all over the place. you can clean the wire connecters under the hood and on the driver opf the Trans., which will help but the problem will come back. Now let get down for bussiness. There are two small gound cables that comes from the main ground cable on the Batt., one small cable goes to fram the other one mount beside the Rataltor, cut replace or clean and solder. Take the Transmisson fues out and clean it with a pocket knife, make yourself feel real good and clean all fuses one at a time. The last and the hardest then again you don't have to take the whole bottom of the dash out like I did because I was looking for the selnol on the steeren colum. take the two screws from bottom of the streem wheel close by the key it is right beside the Key ing., one inch or so They used some kind of gel that have gotton hard you can put your foot or some one else turn the swtich on and play with the buttom on the gear shift you should hear the selinol by the key making a clicking nosie, which is normal.spray it down with some WD-40 or something.make sure you put towl to catch the waste, after it have set for 25 or 35 minutes used type of soft lub such as white litum grease. If this don;t do the job replace the selnoil in the bottom of the trans.
I hope to Jesus, that I have saved you all $400.00 or $700.00 apice.
Please let me know if this Info. helped anyone. God Bless!
