    When you say the white wire is "ignition 2" does that mean it only has power in the "run" and "start" positions? What positions does this wire have power????????????

  • Jason Ewing Sep 09, 2010

    That is correct. That wire needs to see ignition through the cranking cycle, or you will have transmission shifting issues.

The white wire will only have voltage in the Off (bulb test), Run, and Start positons. It will not have voltage in the Lock or Accessorie Postion. When this wire's contact opens you will have no Tachometer, Speedomete, or Gear shift indicator. Also the Check Engine light will be on and Transmission will be usually stuck in 2nd gear (called limp mode). I installed an aftermarket replacement switch and it last 92 days. I am going back with the OEM replacement and troubleshooting connections, Grounds, and Shift solenoids, Ect

I don't know what testing you've done? How long since a tune-up? Any applicable trouble codes? To check codes yourself, at the least, you need an obd2 code reader.
In the diagram, see the pink wire at ignition coil, that is primary voltage to coil, with key on, use a test lite and see if there is voltage? If no voltage, that circuit is fuse protected, I believe ecm 1 fuse, under hood fuse block. You need to do some testing and tell us what you find?
