Transmission doesn't shift after getting battery changed in…

Customer Question
Transmission doesn't shift after...

Transmission doesn't shift after getting battery changed in 2012 Silverado is this part of adaptive learning tranny

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you changed a battery before?

I had it done at V.I.P

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

Ive tried nothing

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

When we drive this it doesn't seem to get out of second gear and the rpm meter shoots way up when I do . Everything was fine before the new battery that we bought because it hardly would start in the below freezing weather we have had.

Transmission Mechanic: Chad Farhat, ASE Certified Technician A6 - Electrical / Electronic systems A7 Heating / Air conditioning systems replied 7 months ago

Master Reset

1-Disconnect Both Battery Cables ,Positive & Negative .
2- Touch Cables With Each Other For 60 Secs ( this will take any residual power in the Harness to Reset the Vehicle Modules )
3- Wait 30 min
4- Close all doors and trunk
5- Reconnect Battery Positive First
6- Use The Key in The Driver Side Door
Lock Cylinder to Lock it & Unlock,IF You have only a Key Fob ,use it to lock and unlock
7- Enter vehicle and Start it .

MAKE SURE YOU HAVE A GOOD 12 VOLT BATTERY AND HOLDING, CHECK BATTERY CABLES FOR LOOSE OR CORROSION ON BATTERY END AND ALTERNATOR AND STARTER END

IF THAT DOES NOT WORK

You will need a Capable Factory scanner or equivalent to Read the Fault codes in the Modules needed and based on these faults we can pull up a Pin Point Troubleshoot and be Accurate ,If you get the Faults Read ,post them back here for me and I can Help You Further on it & we be Accurate
