can a bad govenor pressure sensor be the cause of no o/d? after 30 min or so of continual driving the o/d will kick in. my C.E.L is on and got it scanned and it said my TFT (trans fluid temp im guessing it stands for?) sensor is too high or low. after researching i saw that there is a TFT sensor located in the govenor pressure sensor. will this solve the problem? and if so should i replace the sensor and solenoid or just the sensor

Hi Alec,-Thanks for your reply!!!I'm a Dodge dealership technician and I'm sorry for the delay in replying, I just got home.. ok I see that you have a code for "TFT". To be honest I have never saw that code. Do you have the P-code that it has.. Like P-1234, that will help me alot.. But if you are fairly sure that it was a transmission fluid temp sensor, then you will need to replace the governor pressure transducer, it tells the PCM the governor pressure and also the temperature of the fluid.. It's pictured here:

yea the code I got was po713. and I thought transducers were only in the 2000 models and up for ram 1500
Hi Alec,-The governor pressure transducer and governor pressure solenoid are both in all of the RE transmissions. And you have a 46RE trans.. Yes the P-0713 is the temperature sensor, in which I would replace the Governor pressure transducer, and if you like go ahead and replace the solenoid as well.Brad
