Hello, more than likely this is an issue with the transmission range sensor. This is the sensor inside the transmission that tells the powertrain control module, what gear the shifter is in, if its not reading properly it can cause this type of concern. A scan tool capable of monitoring the tr sensor operation when the fault occurs will be needed to verify if this is the fault along with check for any codes stored for the sensor.

This problem is intermittent. The truck always starts with the key in both P and N. But if i turn the truck off with problem displayed, remote start eont work. From what i read if the trs is the problem, the truck wont start at all but i could be wrong. Thanks for your reply

It depends on what the sensor is reading, it can be the fault, but a scan for codes should be done first and then be able to catch the problem when it does act up and see if the TR sensor is at fault. The only other issue ive seen is a reflash for the instrument cluster but for different issues. That would need to be done by a dealer or shop with reflashing tools.

The sensor is digital, it sends a voltage and a position input, one input can pass and the other fail and still allow the truck to start.

  • TRANSMISSION RANGE SENSOR - OPERATION

OPERATION

The Transmission Range Sensor (TRS) communicates shift lever position to the TCM as a combination of open and closed switches. Each shift lever position has an assigned combination of switch states (open/closed) that the TCM receives from four sense circuits. The TCM interprets this information and determines the appropriate transmission gear position and shift schedule.

There are many possible combinations of open and closed switches (codes). Seven of these possible codes are related to gear position and five are recognized as "between gear" codes. This results in many codes which should never occur . These are called "invalid" codes. An invalid code will result in a DTC, and the TCM will then determine the shift lever position based on pressure switch data. This allows reasonably normal transmission operation with a TRS failure.

No i think im good for now. I really appreciate your detailed explanation. I will have to get the codes read and go from there. Is there a scan tool i could buy to do it myself or are they too expensive?

Most cheap ones only read codes. Some transmission stuff requires the use of a high end scan tool. Its sometime easiest to just have a shop rn the actual diagnostic checks verses purchasing a scan tool unless you will use it on other vehicles. Most auto parts stores will pull codes for free but only if the check engine light is on and may not get to read certain transmission faults. There are many many may scan tools out there. It comes down to if you want to make an investment in one

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
