Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I have noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.

In order to be able to determine if the problem is internal or electronic you need to start with a scan on the system. Have you scanned the computer system to see if there are any fault code setting , if not can you do this and post back them for me. Let me know and I will try and help you with this.

Expert:  Ron replied 1 year ago.

Can you give me the actual code your getting please?

Expert:  Ron replied 1 year ago.

The common cause for this code to set unfortunately is usually due to a failing transmission , you can start by testing the actual governor pressure with a gauge on the governor pressure test port. If it is 0 then it is an internal transmission problem. If the pressure is reading on the gauge then the problem is likely with the pressure sensor inside the transmission. Since you have replaced it I would start with checking the actual pressure.
