Default Solenoid pack replaced, still a no go...

Crewzin, you posted this on my other post...

A DTC is the result of a system or circuit failure, but does not directly identify the failed component or components. It could be any of the conditions that I identified below. I would not assume that it is the solenoid pack without further tests with a DRB scan tool and diagnostic manual. The diagnostic manual suggests checking the transaxle fluid level to make sure it is correct before conducting any tests and to see if it resolves the issue.


Related Relay DTC's Present
Transmission Control Relay Output Circuit Open
2/4 Solenoid Control Circuit Open
2/4 Solenoid Control Circuit Short To Ground
2/4 Solenoid Control Circuit Short To Voltage
2/4 Solenoid
Powertrain Control Module
Intermittent Wiring and Connectors

Ok, so if the pack has been changed out, that SHOULD elimanate all but the last 2 right? Reverse still was almost not present, actually was working in foward gears really well. Drove about a mile before it acted up again.
Am I wrong in my thinking, that if this was a internal failure, that it wouldnt work and then not work? Thanks, Shawn

Crewzin is on his way up North to VA to be with his grandchildren. If I remember correctly, his time on the computer is very limited.

Yea, I'm up here in Virginia with the son and grand kids but the computer time is better. Son got another computer for the kids and they aren't always on both so I can sneak on the one not used a few times a day.


What I quoted was from PT but I think you have your the assumption right that changing out the solenoid pack leaves the PCM and wiring but your going about it like Chrysler does it, buy a part and see if it works. A scan tool could probably have pinpointed the exact problem.
