Customer Question

I have a 2001 chevy silverado 1500 4x4 with a 4L460 trans.I just replaced the trans. with a re-manufactured one and it wont shift up.The speedometer also does not work and the ABS light is on and it says there is no rear speed sensor.Any ideas PLEASE?
JA: Is it just the ABS light? Or is the brake system warning light on, too?
Customer: just ABS.
JA: Are you fixing your Silverado 1500 yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: I tried testing the resistance of the speed sensors, and I just double checked the wiring.
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

What was wrong with the old transmission? Did the speedo work with the old trans?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
something inside it let go, It would not back up and was making alot of noise, but the speedometer worked.

So you installed another transmission and did not have yours rebuilt correct? The vss " vehicle speed sensor" is mounted into the transfer case not the transmission. Was the transfer case replaced as well?
