1994 gmc c6000 topkick 6.0 366 at545 allison. Coming home yesterday and turned into my driveway and it stopped moving. Turned off and started back up and it started in reverse. Got it back to the shop and now it wont go into any gear. Shifter moves linkage on tranny and i disconnected cable to make sure it wasnt broke and it clicks into each gear but will not do anything. Fluid is good no shavings that i can see.

One of the wires on it is broken will that cause it to not go in gear?
Technician: roybelding, Shop Foreman Freightliner trucks replied 1 month ago

thats where I would start. very common failure for that to fail and when it does, it will not allow it to engage into gear. it is also the reason for starting in reverse.

yes it will, repair that first. it has to have the proper signal to engage gears.

No shifter is moving and like i said when its in park reverse or neutral it is in reverse gear and when i put it in drive it feels like neutral
Technician: roybelding, Shop Foreman Freightliner trucks replied 1 month ago

ok need the neutral safety switch. you will need to replace it.

Technician: roybelding, Shop Foreman Freightliner trucks replied 1 month ago

Technician: roybelding, Shop Foreman Freightliner trucks replied 1 month ago

You think thats the problem or is this normal. Trans is only 1.5 years old
Technician: roybelding, Shop Foreman Freightliner trucks replied 1 month ago

not that bad. not normal wear but not enough to give you this issue. I think you have a wire harness issue here. check the main connector for the trans harness and see if there is trans fluid in the connector.

Ok will do is there a fuse for the transmission?
Technician: roybelding, Shop Foreman Freightliner trucks replied 1 month ago

check the connector for any power. should be a 12 volt feed to the solenoids

Roy

Ask Your Own Medium and Heavy Trucks Question
Technician: roybelding, Shop Foreman Freightliner trucks replied 1 month ago

was there any issues prior to this issue

Ask Your Own Medium and Heavy Trucks Question
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
Connector look good but this transmission doesnt have solenoids it is controlled by a vaccum modulator valve only thing electric is speed sensor, n.s.s and reverse switch.
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
Nope never had any problems just happened all of a sudden
Technician: roybelding, Shop Foreman Freightliner trucks replied 1 month ago

ok thanks.

check for any fluid in the vacuum line at the modulator.

the fact that the gears are reading wrong even with another switch leans toward a wire harness issue somewhere.

My friend at Allison tells me that he thinks there is an internal issue with the trans. he reccomends changing the oil/filter and see if it goes into gear.
