Chevrolet Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hi, My name is ***** ***** for the delay.
I will do my best to assist you
what is the year and make of your Chevy?
does the shift indecator in the dash light up?
ok,,does the engine light stay on?if so,can you give me the computer codes?
has the transmission been replaced in the van?
ok,,and,,the speedometer doesnt work now at all?
ok...and the transmission isnt shifting?
ok,,any other problems with maybe the dash lights?maybe the gear selector lights?
ok,,i will give you my thoughts..
the first thing you need to do here is to check the wire harness to the transmission and to the speed sensor,,make sure the harness isnt damaged and the plug connectors are tight and clean
but,,your problem may be the ignition switch,,sometimes when these ignition switches go bad it kills the power to the transmission..most times it will make the dash act up,but i have seen them just kill the power to the transmission..your problem is electrical
be sure to check the wire harness well before buying the ignition switch
great,,glad you got it,,a wiring problem is never easy to find
you are very welcome
