Hello again,
I would first check the signals of the transmission input and output rpm sensors, as any discrepencies would cause an incorrect gear ratio code.
I would also check the fluid for any burnt smell, or small shreds, indicating that you have low pressure, causing a real incorrect ratio.
If all these don't show the problem, then i would next check the wiring from the TCM to the valve body, and remove the valve body, and check the solenoids on it.
Kindly get back to me with your findings, so we proeceed accordingly.
