Thanks for the reply!!!

Ok the code you have is P1762-GOV PRESS SEN OFFSET VOLTS TOO LO OR HIGH. To test the governor pressure sensor you will need a scantool to see if it's showing over 0 psi in gear. If it's showing anything over 0 psi when in gear and foot on brake then the governor pressure transducer and governor pressure solenoid will need to be replaced.. It's an easy job all you need to do is drop the pan and with a 7/16 and a T20 you can change them out.. I attached a picture showing their location in the valvebody...

If you need anymore assistance feel free to reply and don't forget the RATING before leaving the site!!

Have a great day,
