Are the three bolts to the torque convertor screwed into the flywheel also? It seems they are not by your description.
the three bolts are on the outer parimeter of the flywheel

    is the shift cable installed correctly and not broken? Move the shift lever manually under the vehicle with the wheels off the ground securely

    yes the cable is working correct along with the selector on the dash this is not the problem.

    OK is the wiring harness from the transmission connected? The harness feeds the power to the shift solenoids to shift the gears. If not connected no movement will occur

C/E light on for 1 code P0741, changed TCC solenoid, trans fluid, filter why would the transmission stop going into gear after previously shifting beautifully with no slipping or any issues at all.

Just because you installed a new part, do not assume it can't be bad. This happens alot with aftermarket parts. When you change just a minor part and a problem develops, good idea to double check both your work and the new parts.

Blower Motor will not work when resister is installed.

Check the contact connection on the connector, many times these overheat and melt the surrounding plastic. You may need to replace the connector wire harness.

Window fell inside door took panel apart and the cables are disconnected .... need instructions on how to put it back together with pictures if possible

That is basically not a fixable item, you need to replace the window regulator. Most of the time they will have the option to come with the motor. Even though it probably still works, I would recommend replacing it as a unit as the motor may fail before the new regulator goes out.

98 sonoma 4x4 ,4.3 vortec. won't battery,coil,pickupcoil,cap,rotor,wires,plugs,fuel pump,checked all fuses, and grounds.even checked pcm.

My 98 sonoma would not start if humid and about 70F. There was also no fire when acting up. Finally found a bad connection on the hall pickup sensor from the distributor. I put ox-guard on the connector pins and plugged it back in - no problems. Took about 2 years and $500 in wasted repairs to find this. Good Luck!
