Customer Question
I have a 2003...

I have a 2003 1500 4wd suburban automatic tranny. It's having a hiccup, it seems to go out of gear with no response, can't move forward. had to shift to nuetal, reverse and back to drive. What is the best remedy?

Mechanic's Assistant: How old is the transmission? Have you checked the brake switch?

It's original, so 2003, with 207,000 miles. brake switch? where do i look?

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Suburban yourself? What have you tried so far?

Not me, I've not done that type of work, nor the equipment. This just started 2 days ago, then it happened again today.
