Try a vehicle speed sensor (mounted on the transmission), this sensor (or in 1% of cases its wiring) might be bad. This would cause your problem.

If this does not fix the problem, you probably effectively need a new transmission or a transmission rebuild.

Just had the reverse hub replaced on 2000 olds bravada. drove it approx 20 miles, now service engine soon light is on. Shifting feels alittle funny and almost feels as if motor is bogging down. Could...


This is an electric shift transmission (4L60E). If the harness is not plugged in well enough or has dirt in the plug it can lose contact causing it to seem as if it is bogging. What is essentially happening is that it is starting out in 1st initially, but when you slow or stop it doesn't go into 1st again and tries to go in 2nd. You can go undewr the truck and check th connection. If this doesn't resolve the issue, I would return the truck to the repair shop and have them check to assure that the plugs are correct in the valve body driving the shift solenoids.

Service Engine soon light and Service AWD ligths are on, also the abs light


ABS light is on due to a bad or dirty ABS sensor on the front wheel hub. Inspect the front wheel ABS sensor and wire leads on the front wheel inner hub where the speed ring is. At worst it's going to be a bad electronic Actuator at the transfer case or one of the speed sensor at the transfer case, but most likely it's going to be the vacuum switch if you don't have any check engine light on.

I suggest visit autozone or dealer for scanning and know exactly the fault code.

Hope helped.

On my 2000 Olds Bravada, the ABS light came on and, almost simultaneously, the transmission disengaged.


Did you get a check engine light? If so, have someone read the code(s) stored in the car's computer - that will at least lead you down the right path.

2000 bravada, abs light on, all fuses are fine, any ideas, and can this be linked to accuator, as 4 wheel drive will not disingage


ABS light is on due to a bad or dirty ABS sensor on the front wheel hub. Inspect the front wheel ABS sensor and wire leads on the front wheel inner hub where the speed ring is. The 4wd will not disengaged is common when the vacuum switch on top of the transfer case drives side has gone bad and needs to be replaced, you can pick one up at Auto Zone or Napa for around $25.00 and take about 20 min to replace with a wrench. At worst it's going to be a bad electronic Actuator at the transfer case or one of the speed sensor at the transfer case, but most likely it's going to be the vacuum switch if you don't have any Check engine light on. Good luck and keep me posted.

Check engine light on?

Is it a manual or auto? Assuming its a manual, is there an ABS light on? If so or if you hace changed the brake pads recently or even had the tires off or rotated, there could be a problem in the brake pad sensor or abs wheel speed sensor.

Check with Porsche service (your closest dealer) for recalls or TSB (Technical Service Bulletins) related to your concern and check the cayman/boxster owners clubs for similar posts and resolutions.

Hope that helps.
