FIXITMAN :

Hello, and thank you for allowing me the opportunity to help you. If I am not online when you are, please allow me time to return. This is very easy to do. Once you drop the pan you will see where the wiring harness enters the transmission. There are just two locking clips on it. You need to unhook all of the internal connectors on the solenoids first. Then release the two locking tabs and slowly pull the wiring harness from the transmission. It is just about as simple as that. I can see if I have any diagrams for you if you need them. Also, be sure you are ordering the wiring by using the transmission model label on the side of the transmission. If you do not then you may not end up with the right harness.

Customer:

ok I am assuming this is the problem, it is shifting all sourts of crazy if at all fluid is clean and unburned. was parked over winter, had no problems, customer went to bring in my shop for inspection and said that its shifting eraticly, I looked at it and it is in limp mode, inspected harness and it loaded with trany oil so im hoping this will fix, as soon as I clear codes it comes right back

FIXITMAN :

If there is fluid in the connector then that is the first place to start. It is also common for the ignition switch to fail internally and not send the right amount of voltage to the transmission.

Customer:

ok thank you
