Morning sorry for delay

First thing to check is the power supply to transmission TCU

the power supply comes directly from batteries and goes to TCU

there should be a fuse in battery box that gets connected directly to bat positive make sure all battery connections are good and tight, check eyelet connection from fuse, check fuse holder for any corrosion and repair as needed, then follow wire from fuse to tcu pay close attention outside battery box the wire can get partially rubbed through on frame or bat box and cause this issue

Checked battery connections, everything looks good there, I get a code 43 and 25, if I clear the codes I get can put it in gear, but when I start to move the warning lights cone back on, and if I keep moving it will make a loud banging noise.

Could the range valve cause that banging noise, any ideas what that would be? How hard is it to change, can it be done on the side of the road?
Technician: spankyjr1, Journeyman replied 11 months ago

Yes it can cause the banging noise, if not shifting correctly the timing of when gears mesh is off and it bangs in gear

If you can get on top of trans on side of road yes or you would need to drop drive shaft to get to valve
