Could be a bad lockup solenoid or a bad torque converter

2004 Dodge 3500 4x4 , torque converter lock up problems


The bad ground answer seems to be the most plausible answer. I had the same problem with my diesel 48RE transmission.

I remembered a condition with the Intrepid where the instrument cluster lights and dome light would go nuts. The solution was to pull the plug from the back of the cluster dimmer control and apply electrolytic grease.

I applied some to my Transmission Range Sensor connector and haven't had any trouble since.

1. Diesels don't use vacuum
2. Fluid level won't affect TC lockup
3. Replaced the TC lockup solenoid array which did not alleviate the condition

Does anybody know how to fix a torque converter in a TH350. When I runnin down the road at 55 mph the motor whines at about 3500 rpm. The torque converter never kicks in. Anybody know how to fix it. Please...


The lockup converter will only drop the engine speed about
500 rpm.Sure it gets to 3 rd gear?
If there is no lockup ,could be brake lite switch,lockup solonid,
ECM,or the converter itself.

Transmission at 40 mph shifting to higher gear then back to previous until you accelerate hard then goes into higher gear till you slow down.


Check all the battery cable connections, both positive and negative on all the wires. This sounds crazy I know. I had the same problem with my 99. It is the torque converter not locking up. I tried everything, and someone told me to check the cables. I replaced the positive and negative cable ends at the batteries and tightened all the ground wires and I haven't had any more problems. It now shifts like it is supposed to.

2002 dodge ram 2500 diesel truck shifts in and out of gear around 40 to 50 miles per hour


When your truck is shifting like you mentioned you need to check the battery cables. Better yet just replace the cables. Even a small amount of corrosion can cause a break down in the flow of current to the trans computer and cause erratic shifting. New cables should fix you right up. If this does not take care you need to start looking into "noise" from the alternator wire or other electrical interferrence. Another possible solution is to install a Hapi Box which clears interferrence in the wire from the TPS to the trans computer. It worked on my '02 until the cables corroded. I stripped back about 6" and found a mess in there. Good luck. (oh, Dodge will seel you a new trans to fix this problem. Be ware.)

Transmission- 2001 Dodge ram 2500 diesel 4X4


I have a 2002 Dodge Ram that doesn't like to shift into 2nd when flooring it from a Stop. Imagine if you were to floor the gas in neutral, the engine REDLINEs and the engine governor kicks in to keep the RPM from blowing the engine......while stuck in first Gear. If i let off the gas, it goes into 2nd fine. I have replaced the Speed Sensor on the transmission ($18) and it seemed to fix it for one day. After 200 miles, its doing it again. ANybody have legitimate answers in here? Its only got 60K miles..wtf?
