Bad (intermittent?) ASD relay? My old Dakota died, I left it set and it then started right up. Next time it happened I swapped the A/C and ASD relay and it started right up and never failed again. Until it got hot and I tried to use the A/C. Then I had to get a new relay so I could have A/C.
Yup swapped asd and it worked. Now onto the transmission.

Based on my recent experience, some key components unique to the 3.0l Sundance/Shadows are the hood (different bracing), the cooling fan, the ECU, the TCU and the power steering pump just to name a few.

I found a guy who has a computer and he read my car. After plugging the tps back in it throws zero codes and he said everything shifts perfect except the overdrive gear. Will need a trans rebuild ugghhh. $500 car verses how much it'll cost equals ouch.

I'm going to try a trans service but who knows. This sucks.

Now my a.c. is blowing hot and smells bad and my fan for the radiator isn't turning on. When will it stop?

Could this guy's scan tool read TCM codes and CVI also? That is at a different diagnostic connector near the brake pedal and requires the body cable to plug into it. A fluid and filter service probably won't fix anything that is missing a gear.


What happens to the transaxle when it goes to shift into OD, limp-in? Do you have the TCM listed in TSB 18-24-95?

He was the only transmission shop in town that could read it. I'm not sure what type of machine it was but he drove it while plugged in to monitor it.
