Start with trouble codes, the ECM might be telling you what's wrong with those circuits. Can you get a scan tool that connects to this truck, or flash out the codes to see what's stored in the ECM?

Trouble codes 42,54,66,67 . I cleared codes and code 66 was the only one that erased. Current codes 66 ,67 and 66 erased
Chevy Mechanic: Jerry Newton, Chevy Technician replied 1 year ago

The wiring is not correct, or it's damaged. I am attaching a schematic that shows what each of the transmission wires goes to, you'll have to test every one and make sure the correct wires are in the correct pins. You'll also need to make sure that you have power on the appropriate pin, none of the solenoids will work if you don't have power on pin K.

Look at that image for reference of the pin numbers, check the diagram and make sure the correct wires are in the correct pin slots.

I rewired my pcm to the diagram that I received from you. engine did not start, rewired back engine started. transmission diagram that was just sent is what my 4l80 has
Chevy Mechanic: Jerry Newton, Chevy Technician replied 1 year ago

There is something definitely amiss about that, because there's nothing in the transmission wiring that should stop the engine from starting. You have to have some incorrect wires on those circuits, or in the wrong pins at the ECM, or something along those lines.

the transmission wires that I received from you was half control were in red connector and the others on blue connector, the one I have was mostly in blue connector
Chevy Mechanic: Jerry Newton, Chevy Technician replied 1 year ago

What connector are you talking about? What's red and blue?

Ask Your Own Chevy Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
The plugs that go into the pcm are red and blue
Chevy Mechanic: Jerry Newton, Chevy Technician replied 1 year ago

I see, I didn't get what you meant, I was thinking of the trans connector.

In the diagram that I sent, only two wires go to the C/D connector, the rest of them go to the A/B connector. Where do you see that half of them go to each connector?

Ask Your Own Chevy Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
From the wire diagram that you sent me on the pcm . Half went into one plug and half goes into the other plug
Chevy Mechanic: Jerry Newton, Chevy Technician replied 1 year ago

Not the way I'm looking at it. Pins G and H go into one connector, the rest of the wires go into the other connector. I'm looking at the schematic that I sent you to arrive at this.

when I moved all the wires on my pcm to diagram. I have 8 wires for engine side not plug in. would you have diagram the for engine side also or complete pcm diagram Thank You for your help. Will let you know what happens tomorrow.
Chevy Mechanic: Jerry Newton, Chevy Technician replied 1 year ago

The diagrams from 1993 are really, really tough. They originally came to dealers on giant foldouts, like blueprints. Those are long gone, they were stupid anyway and were difficult to read, and now that we have switched to electronic format, all we have are pictures of portions of the overall diagram.

I am attaching a schematic for a 1995, and it should be substantially the same, if not exactly the same, as your 93. By 95 they were switching to electronic formats, so the diagrams are easier to read. This should give you what you need to find where these wires go.
