Customer Question

I replaced my 46re transmission in my 1999 ram 1500 with a good one from my wrecked 2001 ram 1500. Both have 318 v8. After swapping, the trans temp light and overdrive off light immediately came on in the 99 ram. What do I need to do to make this 2001 tranwmission work in the 1999?
JA: Does the light flash or stay on steady? Do you happen to have the trouble code?
Customer: the light stays on steady, no code reading on the Bluetooth scanner.
JA: Are you fixing your Ram 1500 yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: I am doing it myself. The transmission went out in the 1999 truck I bought to replace the 2001 that I rolled. I have just swapped the transmission. The trandmission in the 2001 was running perfect and has 100,000 miles on it.
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: No
