Next you want to remove the governor body which is pictured above. Then after that, I may but I hope not do yet a different writeup all associated to the same problem hah. It will come with the new solenoid pack but it's a bitch to change. And, if you remember, what did it smell like? This has always been a weak point in the vehicle's electronic system, and any poor connection in the system will throw a code that relates to a failed governor pressure solenoid or sensor. Once it's off, on the later models you can simply pull both the sensor and the solenoid straight out. I did notice that one of my connectors, the one by the shift linkage has a bare wire on it that goes into the socket plug.
You'll need to drop the valve body. You can let it hang there but that is bad practice, so unplug the sensor and solenoid and get it all out of your way. One is a three prong sensor by the shift linkage, and it has two bare wires where the insulation is torn but it looks like it goes into the socket still. Found your post and it is very informative. Is this true or I can just replace the 2000 Gov. I can put it in D, it drives in 3rd gear, but i can downshift to 2nd manually, and slam it into first from neutral at a stop.
If you have spare cash, I recommend changing the governor pressure sensor and solenoid as well since you need to remove them for this repair and they have a high failure rate. Now, I put a 2001 tranny in my 99 so I'm guessing either my 99 pcm is having trouble talking to those sensors or I need to swap the sensors from my 99 into the 2001 any advice here? Pressure Sensor Square 4-pin connector?? The valve body should be out, hopefully it didn't hit you in the face. Dave emailed me back and asked me to let him know when he could call me to discuss further. I pulled the tranny out of a 2001 wj and put in my 99 wj, and I am getting the same exact symptom. Be the first to review this product! When I did mine, I used the stock wiring.
Or some people have had good luck with. If you don't replace the wiring harness do you just splice the wires with regular but connectors or do you need a better connections. Do not install the governor body back in the transmission yet. Got it done today, decided to drop valve body and replace all wiring to overdrive solenoid. Also, I know you just changed the fluid, but what color is it now? I have always enjoyed this site because of the people on here and their attitudes. Next remove the filter it is held on by two torx bolts. A couple of questions to confirm What color was the old trans fluid? I spoke with Bob and explained my truck was having transmissions problems.
More fluid will come out so have your drain pan under the transmission still. Start with the solenoid though, a fuse or the solenoid pack is usually the culprit. This is what you should see minus mud, grass, and maybe some bugs that I have. While I was throwing just about every transmission fault code, changing the entire internal wiring and every sensor didn't fix it. Turning off the engine for 10 seconds and re-starting would fix the problem temporarily. I haven't had much luck at local stores but you could try.
I removed shift and kickdown linkage from outside tranny case, removed the neutral safety switch and unplugged the wiring harness from connection and then removed 10 11mm bolts holding v-body in and like you said just push down on the electric connection and work the valve body down until you can get to the shifter arm that is connected to the v-body. I was actually looking at the sensors that are on the outside of the transmission. No splicing, just simple clips to plug in. Evidently the plastic sensor replaced the more robust brass version on the previous generation. Once I had v-body on work bench I removed the governor pressure wiring and the solenoid bracket and then was able to remove the 3 t-25 torx screws holding the overdrive solenoid on. One question, what tranny problems were you having? It felt like the transmission was starting in 3rd.
If you don't replace the harness all you do is unplug it at the solenoid pack and plug in the replacement and you're done. Just pull the dipstick and look. The unit is held on with three T25 bolts. It's best to work the retainer plate back on while the governor body is out, it can be a bit tricky, have patience. Use a small screwdriver to gently release the connector. I was planning on replacing the entire harness but can see that it will be chore.
If you look, you now have easy access to it. I found this product and emailed Goerend to verify I was thinking about the issue correctly, along with a long list of other transmission questions. All this after pulling someone free from the mud, I lost neutral and reverse. Erroneous fault codes can be set due to an open or missing fuse. On earlier models, the solenoid has a clip holding it in which must be removed first. One day I hope to make it to a grand slam event and meet some of you people! And same question about smell.
I reset the computer before driving it, disconnect the positive battery cable and turn the key to on. Parts ship daily from our distribution center.

Then carefully cut the wire ties. I drove it a least 15 miles up to 80 mph and it seems to be o.
Adding additional ground points doesn't hurt. If changing the solenoid doesn't work, reply here and keep in touch. If you are changing them, you need to remove the retainer plate as shown below: On this 1999 42re, the retainer plate simply slides off, on later models it seems they redesigned the plate and it actually holds both the sensor and solenoid in and can take a bit of wiggling to remove it. I would highly recommend this part since I had replaced the sensor only 6 months earlier. Here's my multipurpose workshop: Start by removing the transmission pan. Seeing as your only throwing codes for the solenoid pack, I'd take a gamble and assume your wiring is okay but it's up to you. Do you think I should replace entire harness or splice it in and if I decide to drop valve body can you give me some pointers on doing that.
