I need to warm the selection box on my allison 6 speed or it

Customer Question

I need to warm the selection box on my allison 6 speed or it will not light up or shift
JA: Just to clarify, what are the exact lights you're talking about?
Customer: It is a Allison world transmission on a motorhome, touch pad shows N<R>D
JA: What is the model/year of your transmissions?
Customer: 1993 on an 8.3 Cummins
JA: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: Not tried anything, just would not light the touch pad after the winter. A site I saw said to warm the box below the pad. It works too after a few minutes of warming. Never was like that before
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: No

Hi my name is***** will be glad to try to help. If temp related it is likely a weak solder joint or connection that makes a better connection once expanded by heat. Could be a component on the circuit board internally. Its likely this connection will fail completely and require a new controller. Let me know
