Relist: I prefer a second opinion.
Customer reply replied 8 years ago
The one in the car now is a 1996 trans. I'm just learning the site,and stuffed up the reply previously.The Teck manual says you can drive it with fuse out of TCU Wiring loam.Is that correct?
Jeep Mechanic: Meister Tech, Jeep Master Technician replied 8 years ago
Your check engine light should be on right now correct?

And you should have no overdrive and some harsh shifting.


Let me know if this is correct
